SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd likely broke a collarbone in the first half against Michigan State on Saturday.

Coach Charlie Weis says training staff told him "clavicle," and he assumes that means it's broken. It's unclear how long Floyd might be out.

Floyd, who entered the game second in the nation in receiving yards a game with 160 yards, went to the locker room with about 5 minutes left in the half. He was injured when he was hit in the end zone making what seemed to be a touchdown catch, but the ball came loose. Trainers on the sideline appeared to be working on his left shoulder.

Floyd had two catches for 38 yards. The Irish won 33-30.
