Taken from ESPN's big 10 blog. So is it Hope didn't know about the injury or forgot?
"There seems to be some confusion about why top CB Ricardo Allen wasn't on the field for Notre Dame's game-winning drive Saturday. Hope called it a coaches' decision, while Allen pointed to an ankle injury. Allen tweeted Monday: "No everyone I'm just walking around in a boot because of "coaches decision." The junior also tweeted that his ankle is improving and that he'll be ready this week against Eastern Michigan."
