More from Irish247:
Per a source, Irish247.com has learned that Notre Dame junior running back Greg Bryant will miss the first four games of the 2015 season.
The 5-10, 205-pounder will miss part of the upcoming season because of a “violation of team rules.”
Bryant, who played in 12 games last season rushing for 289 yards and three touchdown, will be sidelined for games against Texas [Sept. 5], Virginia [Sept. 12], Georgia Tech [Sept. 19] and UMass [Sept. 26]. He will return for the Oct. 3 road matchup with Clemson.
Bryant, from Delray Beach, Florida, was one of the more heralded recruits in the 2013 class. He was a four-star recruit by 247sports.com and was viewed as the 45th best prospect overall and the sixth best running back in the country.
With Bryant suspended for the time being, Tarean Folston will be expected to carry a bigger load in the Irish backfield early on. Bryant was tabbed as a second-stringer along with C.J. Prosise after spring practice.
The Irish open up their season on September 5 at home against Texas.
