Notre Dame tight end Mitchell Evans will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, head coach Marcus Freeman said Monday.

Evans was injured Saturday in a blowout of Pitt. He is the leading receiver for the No. 12 Irish with 29 receptions and 422 receiving yards.

He made five catches for 66 yards in the 58-7 win over the Panthers before sustaining a knee injury in the second half.

Holden Staes, who had two catches for 14 yards against Pitt, likely becomes the No. 1 tight end for the Irish. He has 12 catches for 163 yards and four touchdowns, on the season, the most among receivers.

Notre Dame (7-2) plays at Clemson (4-4) this week.
