Duke CB Bryon Fields out for 2015 with torn ACL

-

Duke Blue Devils starting cornerback Bryon Fields tore his ACL in practice yesterday and will be out for the 2015 season. Adam Rowe of 247 Sports reported Fields’ injury.

In Fields’ place, sophomore Alonzo Saxton II was seen taking first team reps. Fields is a true junior and can now redshirt this year and have two years of eligibility remaining starting next season. In his first two seasons, Fields had accumulated 112 tackles, one interception, a sack and even a fumble recovery.

Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe briefly addressed Fields’ injury.

“The cruelest element of college football – and for all of college athletics – is injury, and we certainly feel heartbreak at this time for Bryon and his family,” Duke head coach David Cutcliffe said.

“We know Bryon is in great hands with our medical staff, and I have all the confidence in the world in Bryon’s dedication and perseverance to overcome this obstacle. The challenge for a football team to lose a player with Bryon’s ability and experience is significant, but it’s one we’ll embrace.”

Duke opens the season on the road against Tulane on September 3.
