Notre Dame nose guard Louis Nix III will miss the rest of the 2013 campaign after undergoing surgery to repair his torn meniscus, Irish Illustrated reports.

Nix missed the Fighting Irish's victories over Air Force and Navy earlier this year, but he played in Notre Dame's 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh on Nov. 9. He started all eight games in which he played, tallying 27 total tackles and two tackles for loss.

SI.com's Chris Burke projected Nix as a top-15 pick in next year's NFL draft, should he decide to go pro. This week, Nix, who has one year of eligibility remaining, told Irish Illustrated that he hasn't decided about his future at Notre Dame just yet.

"It's up in the air right now. Who knows?" Nix asked rhetorically during the bye week. "I don't know the future, and I don't think you guys do. It's just something to keep thinking about. I love this place. Who wouldn't want to come back for a fifth year at Notre Dame?"
Nix did confirm that his mother would attend Notre Dame's Senior Day ceremonies before Saturday's game against BYU in South Bend.
