Notre Dame running back Logan Diggs has shoulder surgery following Blue-Gold game injury
SOUTH BEND — Notre Dame sophomore running back Logan Diggs had successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder that he suffered during last Saturday's Blue-Gold game, the university announced Friday.
Team doctor Dr. Brian Ratigan performed the surgery that is expected to take between three to six months to heal.
Diggs was injured while stiff-arming cornerback Philip Riley.
"I think his shoulder got banged up a little bit," head coach Marcus Freeman said afterward.
Diggs is expected to see an increased role in the backfield with last year's starter Kyren Williams moving onto the NFL. Diggs rushed for 230 yards and three touchdowns in 2021 and is projected see more playing time behind Chris Tyree.
Best case scenario for the Irish is Diggs will be ready by the season opener, but it could be as late as October or November.
Two other players who left the game with injuries were cornerback Chance Tucker and tight end Kevin Bauman.
