Duke's quarterback depth took a major hit when redshirt freshman quarterback Thomas Sirk ruptured his right Achilles tendon Wednesday. Sirk underwent surgery and will likely miss the 2013 football season, as recoveries typically take 6-9 months.
The injury also leaves Duke in a bind for the Saturday Spring game, as starter Anthony Boone is the only healthy scholarship quarterback (Brandon Connette and incoming freshman QB Parker Boehme are both recovering from offseason surgeries). Junior Mackenzie Sovereign is listed next on the depth chart.
