Duke QB Thomas Sirk likely out for 2016 with torn Achilles


Earlier this year, the Duke Blue Devils got some bad news when starting quarterback Thomas Sirk tore his Achilles during a team workout. There was some hope that he would be able to take the field this year, but now it looks like he will miss the entire 2016 season.

It was reported by ESPN, via the Durham Herald-Sun that Sirk will likely miss the 2016 season with the injury. This is the third time he has injured his Achilles since 2013, but this is obviously the most serious of injuries.

During the 2015 season, Sirk, a redshirt senior this year, led the Blue Devils in both passing and rushing last year. He threw for over 2,600 yards and 16 touchdowns, while rushing for over 800 yards and eight touchdowns and was named co-MVP of the Pinstripe Bowl.

It looks like the Blue Devils will have to go with redshirt freshman Daniel Jones or junior Parker Boehme for the 2016 season. They open the season on Sept. 3 against North Carolina Central.
