SOUTH BEND -- Included on Notre Dame's spring roster released Tuesday were a couple of players who have switched positions.
Not included was wide receiver Michael Floyd, who was suspended indefinitely Monday after being arrested early Sunday and charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
"There's a range of emotions that you have," Irish coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex during his pre-spring practice press conference. The Irish open spring practice Wednesday, with the Blue-Gold Game set for April 16.
Kelly said he experienced a number of emotions after learning of Floyd's arrest, including anger and disappointment while also wanting to make sure it doesn't happen again. "I think you go through the gamut of all those things."
With the future of Notre Dame's top offensive player uncertain -- not only was Floyd not listed on the roster but he also was not listed among the returning leading receivers after leading the team with 79 receptions and 1,025 yards last season -- Kelly must focus on the players he does have.
"Our focus is strictly on the guys that are here," said Kelly, who stressed player development as a spring theme. "And we can only develop the guys that are here."
Junior-to-be Theo Riddick figures to be one of the top targets at receiver this season. He moved to receiver in 2010 but Kelly said in January that it was possible Riddick could switch back to running back, his original position.
Kelly mentioned John Goodman, Daniel Smith and former quarterback Luke Massa as players who could fill in at Floyd's spot.
Kelly said because Floyd was suspended from the team, he is no longer acting as a captain, but he would be open to revisiting Floyd's captaincy if Floyd is reinstated to the team.
In injury news, linebacker Manti Te'o will be limited after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee. Te'o will be involved but not full-time.
"I think it's pretty safe to say what Manti Te'o can do," Kelly said.
Quarterback Dayne Crist, who suffered a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 30, will be limited this spring, much like he was last spring when he was also coming off knee surgery. Last spring, Crist took part in virtually everything except live hitting.
Defensive end Sean Cwynar will sit out the spring after undergoing offseason foot and back surgery. The back is fine, Kelly said, but Cwynar continues to wear a protective boot on his foot.
In position moves announced Tuesday, sophomore-to-be Austin Collinsworth has been moved from wide receiver to safety and freshman Brad Carrico, originally ticketed for defensive end, will play offensive line. Linebacker Danny Spond moves from inside to outside and Justin Utupo switches from outside to inside linebacker.
Assistant Kerry Cooks, who coached outside linebackers last season, will now coach cornerbacks. Defensive coordinator Bob Diaco, who also coached the inside linebackers last season, now will coach all of the linebackers. Chuck Martin, the defensive backs coach last season, will focus on the safeties.
