Te'o likely to miss Notre Dame spring game

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- As expected, Manti Te'o jumped into some relatively heavy work during the final stages of Notre Dame's spring practice slate, taking reps in 7-on-7 drills Wednesday.

But further viewings of the team's leading tackler may be limited this spring. Te'o, recovering from offseason arthroscopic knee surgery, isn't likely to play in the spring game April 16.

"We want to develop him over the next five days, too, where if we wanted to play him, we certainly could in the spring game," Irish coach Brian Kelly said after Wednesday's practice. "I don't think we will... I'm not ready to make that decision right now, but my thought is that we would not."
