03/29/2013 - 2013 Notre Dame Pro Day: Notre Dame's pro day on Tuesday featured 14 players, including first-round NFL draft hopefuls Manti Te'o, Tyler Eifert and Zeke Motta. And even though no NFL head coaches attended the event (held indoors on Field Turf), representatives from 29 NFL teams were there. Jamoris Slaughter, safety (5-11 5/8, 196) - Slaughter didn't work out because of an injury, but he did pump 19 strength reps. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

01/16/2013 - It appears the college career of Notre Dame safety Jamoris Slaughter has come to an end, whether he wants it to or not. Slaughter ruptured his Achilles' tendon during Notre Dame's win over Michigan State early in the season, missing the rest of the year. He petitioned the NCAA for a sixth season of eligibility, hoping to return to the field in 2013. According to 247sports.com, however, that petition has been denied. Slaughter also redshirted in 2008, which he told the NCAA was due to another injury. Notre Dame has not confirmed that Slaughter's petition has been denied. The school does have the option to appeal the decision. Slaughter had only eight tackles in 2012 before the injury but had 98 tackles and three interceptions in 39 career games with the Irish. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com

10/16/2012 - SS Jamoris Slaughter tore his Achilles tendon in the 3rd quarter against Michigan State and will miss the rest of the season. Coach Brian Kelly said redshirt freshman and converted wide receiver Matthias Farley will likely start in Slaughter's place. Slaughter is the third member of the secondary to suffer a season ending injury. - College Injury Report

09/16/2012 - The already young and injury-beset Notre Dame secondary just got younger and more injury-beset. Senior safety Jamoris Slaughter is out for the year after tearing his Achilles tendon at Michigan State, Irish coach Brian Kelly confirmed on Sunday. Slaughter -- a fifth-year player whose college career may now be over -- will have surgery this week. That leaves sophomore Matthias Farley to take over a starting role, yet another relatively inexperienced player assuming major responsibilities. "You lose a Jamoris Slaughter, you're losing an 'A' player," Kelly said during a teleconference. "Matthias is certainly not at the level yet of a Jamoris Slaughter, he has to continue to develop, but we have a lot of confidence and trust in him. He'll be getting a lot of work back there." It's the second season-ending Achilles tear for the secondary after cornerback Lo Wood suffered the injury during preseason camp. So Farley will have company under a megawatt spotlight Saturday, when the No. 11 Irish host rival Michigan for another night game at Notre Dame Stadium. - Brian Hamilton, The Chicago Tribune

09/16/2012 - Notre Dame's defense had a lot of hits in a dominating win over Michigan State. The Fighting Irish, though, had a setback on that side of the ball during their first victory over a top-10 team since 2005. Starting safety Jamoris Slaughter will miss the rest of the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon in a 20-3 win over the Spartans on Saturday night. The senior started the first three games this year and 19 in his career in which he also played cornerback and linebacker. Sophomore Matthias Farley is expected to start in Slaughter's place when No. 11 Notre Dame (3-0) hosts No. 18 Michigan (2-1) on Saturday night. "You lose a Jamoris Slaughter, you're losing an A player," Irish coach Brian Kelly said Sunday. "Matthias is certainly not at the level yet of a Jamoris Slaughter. He's got to continue to develop, but we have a lot of confidence and trust in him. He'll be getting a lot of work back there." - AP Sports
