NOTRE DAME — Notre Dame is down yet another veteran defender.

Senior safety and team captain Austin Collinsworth is injured and will miss the season opener against Rice, according to a Notre Dame spokesman. 

Junior Elijah Shumate will start in Collinsworth’s place. Shumate started four games last year at Notre Dame.

Notre Dame did not release the details of Collinsworth’s injury, but Irish Illustrated reported Collinsworth strained his MCL.

The Irish are slated to kick off at 3:42 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30.
