It looks like Navy will have to play a key game against Notre Dame without starting quarterback Kriss Proctor. The Midshipmen's signal caller suffered an elbow injury in Navy's loss to East Carolina on Saturday and was in a sling at practice on Monday, reports Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times. Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said he doesn't expect Proctor to play.
"It’s probably a long shot that he’ll play this week," Niumatalolo said of Proctor.
In Proctor's absence, Trey Miller will start for Navy, who is looking to snap a five-game losing streak. Miller relieved Proctor on Sunday and helped Navy make a comeback attempt before eventually falling short.
As Stevens reports, this isn't Proctor's first experience with a dislocated elbow. He suffered the same injury in high school and has also dealt with it twice already in college.
