Shoulder surgery sidelines Notre Dame TE Brock Wright

Add another Notre Dame offensive skill player to the list missing the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1 against No. 17 LSU. A shoulder injury will sideline freshman tight end Brock Wright, as first reported by Pete Sampson of Irish Illustrated.

Surgery last week will likely limit Wright in spring practice, but its long-term effects are expected to be minimal.

Wright finishes his debut campaign with no catches in 11 games, primarily seeing action as a blocking back in specific situations. That would presumably have been his role in the postseason exhibition, as well.
