Tommy Rees Exits Game vs. USC After Taking Big Hit
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are taking on the USC Trojans, but they may have to play the rest of the game without starting quarterback Tommy Rees.
In the third quarter with Notre Dame up 14-10, Rees took a big hit. According to Brian Hamilton of The Chicago Tribune, Rees was able to walk off of the field, but was accompanied by a large group of medical personnel.

Rees had been inconsistent heading into Saturday, completing just 51.7 percent of his passes. He threw for 13 touchdowns and nearly 1,500 yards, but also threw six interceptions.
Things looked better for Rees before leaving the game against USC. He had completed two-thirds of his pass attempts for 166 yards and two touchdowns. If Rees can't play, that means Andrew Hendrix will have to come in, and he's had just six pass attempts this year.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Irish will now have to play without Rees, and that's bad news for a team that's looking for their fifth win this season.
