Duke senior WR Chris Taylor caught six passes for 97 yards and one touchdown on Saturday's 28-14 loss to Virginia.

Taylor had his best game of the season in terms of both receptions and yards. Most of his yardage in this one came on a 46-yard score early in the third quarter to make it a one-score game. Taylor will look to continue his success against Pittsburgh next week.

Duke redshirt sophomore T Jaylen Miller will miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle on Saturday against Virginia.

A big loss for the Blue Devils, who are thin on the offensive line. Miller won't be able to play again in 2018, but he should be back at some point in the 2019 season, and the 6-foot-3, 308-pound lineman should have a chance to regain his starting spot.

Duke redshirt junior QB Daniel Jones completed 22-of-40 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's 28-14 loss to Virginia.

The Blue Devils' suffered their second loss of the season this week, largely due to their offensive inefficiencies. Jones averaged a measly 6.0 yards per pass attempt and lead the team in rushing with 37 yards on 15 attempts (2.5 yards per carry). Jones' lone touchdown pass was from 46 yards out. The team's next-best rusher was Deon Jackson who recorded 17 yards on 11 carries. The Virginia defense truly stifled what has otherwise been a good offense (27.4 points per game). They will look to get back on track against Pittsburgh next week.

Duke junior WR Aaron Young (hamstring) was ruled out for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Young returned to the lineup last week against Georgia Tech after missing a month and a half with his hamstring injury. Apparently he re-aggravated it.

Duke redshirt sophomore RB Brittain Brown (undisclosed) is dressed but not likely to play against Virginia on Saturday.

This is the second straight week that Brown has warmed up but not been able to give it a go. Deon Jackson shoulders the majority of the load whenever Brown is inactive.

Duke received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Tony Davis.

Davis (6'1/186) made the commitment during halftime of his homecoming game on Friday. He was previously committed to the Blue Devils, but decided to open his recruitment after receiving interest from schools like North Carolina and Tennessee. It's a strong get for the Blue Devils, as he ranks 34th on 247 Sports composite rankings among all corners in the class.

While Duke redshirt junior QB Daniel Jones was recovering from a broken collarbone earlier this fall, his teammates 3D-printed him a brace.

A "living in the future now" story for your Friday. Jones fractured the collarbone on his non-throwing shoulder in Week 2, against Northwestern. Working in tandem with the training staff, C Clark Bulleit and LB Kevin Gehsmann used a 3D printer to create a brace for the quarterback which adhered to the staff's recommendations regarding the best approach to aid his recovery. The redshirt junior signal-caller ultimately sat out just two games before returning to action. Jones, Bulleit, Gehsmann and the rest of their Blue Devil buddies are currently 5-1 on the season.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 CB Tony Davis will make his pledge during halftime of Friday's homecoming game.

Davis (6'1/186) had been committed to Duke for almost half a year at the time of his decommitment in July. Tennessee and North Carolina emerged as contenders for the four-star corner's pledge following that decommitment. We wouldn't completely rule out the possibility that he loops back around to the Blue Devils on Friday evening. On the 247Sports composite board, Davis ranks as the No. 317 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Duke redshirt sophomore RB Brittain Brown (undisclosed) did not play in Saturday's 28-14 win over Georgia Tech.

Brown warmed up prior to Saturday's contest, but did not ultimately received a carry. He's been banged up of late. Deon Jackson served as Duke's lead back in his offense and would figure to do likewise again against Virginia next weekend should Brown be unable to get right during the practice week.
Oct 13 - 3:55 PM

Duke sophomore RB Deon Jackson rushed for 98 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Saturday's 28-14 win over Georgia Tech.

With Brittain Brown sitting this one out nursing an undisclosed injury concern, Jackson stepped up as the Blue Devils' No. 1 option on Saturday. He came through with a 12-yard touchdown run in the opening minutes of the first quarter and went on to average 4.66 YPC with a long dash of 18 yards. Jackson has now scored touchdowns in five of six games this season. If Brown can't play against UVA next weekend, Jackson would have another opportunity for respectable numbers.
Oct 13 - 3:53 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught four passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 28-14 win over Georgia Tech.

Rahming (5'10/170) hauled in a 48-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Saturday's performance marked his first of the campaign in which he's topped 55 yards receiving. He'll carry a 24-279-4 receiving line into next weekend's showdown with Virginia.
Oct 13 - 3:47 PM

Duke redshirt junior QB Daniel Jones completed 17-of-27 passes for 206 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 28-14 win over Georgia Tech.

Jones (6'5/220) did most of his damage in the second half, specifically the third quarter. That's when he hit on all three of his touchdown passes to help the Blue Devils pull away. Duke would enter the fourth quarter holding a commanding 28-7 lead. Jones suffered a broken collarbone to his non-throwing shoulder in Week 2, but has had no health setbacks since making a speedy return. He has started each of the last two games without any apparent limitation. A showdown with Virginia shows next on the schedule.
Oct 13 - 3:43 PM

Duke junior WR Aaron Young (hamstring) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

This would be a big addition for the Blue Devils. Young posted a a 4-114-1 line in Duke's season opener against Army and looked to be emerging as a much-needed big-play outside threat. But a hamstring issue injury has had him sidelined since that game.
Oct 13 - 11:28 AM

Duke junior LB Koby Quansah underwent foot surgery.

Quansah (6'1/230) has been ruled out indefinitely following the surgery. The junior linebacker broke his left foot during Wednesday's practice. Through six games this season, he's recorded 14 tackles with a pass defended while working in a backup capacity behind Ben Humphreys. Whether Quansah can return before the end of the season should very much be considered an open question at this juncture.

Duke redshirt freshman RB Marvin Hubbard III will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on Sunday to repair a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

He suffered the injury after just one carry in the Blue Devils’ loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday. Hubbard III, who in five games rushed 30 times for 118 yards, had been Duke's RB3. Brittain Brown and Deon Jackson will now be spelled by Nico Pierre and/or Elijah Deveaux.
