Ruhland overcomes injuries to play final year for Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Trevor Ruhland expected to be Notre Dame’s starting center this season, right up until the medical staff told him in January his left knee is like that of an 80-year-old man and he probably shouldn’t play football anymore.

Bear in mind that Ruhland had endured a broken ankle, a broken elbow, a broken nose, torn pectoral muscles on both sides of his chest and a torn labrum in his right shoulder during his first four years at Notre Dame. Three surgeries on that knee had the Notre Dame training staff questioning if he could even make it through summer workouts after sitting out spring drills. There was a belief the knee needed to be replaced.

“Trevor Ruhland could have easily taken a pass on this and said, ‘I'm out,’” coach Brian Kelly said. “We thought he was going to be a medical redshirt, quite frankly. We thought that there was no way. But he wanted to play in his senior year. It was important to him.”
