According to a report from Tim Prister of Irish Illustrated, fifth-year senior center Jarrett Patterson tore a pectoral muscle while bench-pressing earlier this week. The reports says the injury requires surgery that will keep Patterson sidelined this spring but that he should be good to go for the Sept. 3 opener at Ohio State.

Patterson has been a mainstay on Notre Dame’s offensive line, starting 34 games over the past three seasons. He’s widely seen as one of the best centers in all of college football entering the 2022 season.

It’s good that Patterson should be ready to go by September but this clearly isn’t the news you want to wake up to if you’re a Notre Dame fan.
