Almost to the exact day on which he tore his right ACL, Dayne Crist has suffered a season-ending patella tendon injury to his left knee.

After a 29-yard run to the right sideline, a Tulsa player made helmet-to-helmet contact with the Irish quarterback, sending him to the ground and landing awkwardly with his left knee twisted up. Right away, team doctors went to work on Crist's injury, putting him in an immobilizing cast and walking him to the locker room.

The injury will cost Crist the season and will require another grueling rehab for the junior. 

Notre Dame has felt the impact of injuries thus far in 2010, losing many key players for extended time. Both Kyle Rudolph and Theo Riddick, two of the best receiving options on the team, have missed extended time due to injuries.

At the half, the Irish currently lead Tulsa 20-18. True freshman Tommy Rees has taken over for Crist after the injury, throwing for three touchdowns to go along with two picks.
