AP source: Duke QB reinjures Achilles, likely out for season

BY foxsports • August 26, 2016

A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Duke quarterback Thomas Sirk is expected to miss the season after reinjuring the Achilles tendon he tore in February.

The person spoke Friday night on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced Sirk's status.

This marks the third injury to an Achilles tendon since 2013 for Sirk, who led Duke in rushing and passing last season and was the co-MVP of the Blue Devils' Pinstripe Bowl victory over Indiana.

He tore his left Achilles tendon during an offseason conditioning in February, then reinjured it Thursday and the person said Sirk was evaluated Friday.

Coach David Cutcliffe said earlier this week that redshirt freshman Daniel Jones took most of the first-team snaps during practice.
