Per Marcus - huge bummer but at least it's a position of depth

Tough bounce for the pup, but he will come back. He's that kind of competitor.

ACL tear, tore his other one in high school. The coaches were excited about him, he played well on the scout team last year.

This really makes me sad because I've heard nothing but good things off the field about Duke. I guess he's a really good kid, along with developing nicely as a player. Just wish for a full and quick recovery for him.

He had some great tweets during the win streak last year. Seems to love the U and his teammates.

Arrgh. Must be so frustrating for Duke. Injuries have plagued his career so far, to the point where he can't seem to get off the ground. By all accounts he's got the tools to become a valuable member of this team, and when I saw him at the Spring Game, he looked real good. Hope his knees don't end up sidelining his football career.

OL are require to wear them, don't think any other positions are required.

All of those hinged knee braces were started in the 80's when my son was an offensive lineman and defensive linebacker in high school. After a knee injury, in order to keep playing football, Doctor ordered it, and insurance covered it.
