The list just keeps growing.
S August Campbell, who left midway through the Stanford game with an injury, and DE Justin Foxx, who had surgery on his right ring finger the week, are the latest starters to move to the “out” list. Duke is now without seven projected starters: WR Blair Holliday, TE Braxton Deaver, NG Jamal Bruce, LB Kelby Brown, S Jordon Byas, Foxx and Campbell.
Key reserves LB Kelby Brown and S Corbin McCarthy are also out. Counting S Jeremy Cash, the Ohio State transfer whose waiver to play immediately was denied, Duke is now down 15 scholarship players.
“I’ve never been a part of any football team challenged like this one is,” head coach David Cutcliffe said in reference to the number of injuries.
