SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Demetrius Jones, the Notre Dame quarterback who lost the starting position after a poor performance in the opener, didn't travel with the team Friday to Michigan for the game against the Wolverines on Saturday,
``At 2:30 today, while boarding the bus to Michigan, I was notified that Demetrius Jones had decided not to make the trip,'' coach Charlie Weis said in a statement released Friday. ``I have not spoken to Demetrius and can only say that he missed the team bus. Any additional comment would be without all the facts.''
Jones, a sophomore from Chicago, started the opener against Georgia Tech, but was pulled in the second quarter after fumbling the ball away twice. He was 1-of-3 passing for 4 yards and ran for 28 yards on 12 carries. He didn't play in the loss against Penn State last week.
Neither Jones nor Evan Sharpley, who was the No. 2 quarterback against Georgia Tech, have talked to the media since that opening game. Freshman Jimmy Clausen started against Penn State and is scheduled to start against the Wolverines.
Weis had said he might consider using Jones when the Irish (0-2) play at Michigan (0-2). Jones was the No. 3 quarterback last season and ran the scout team.
