Well this is a heartbreaker - Jela Duncan injured his Achilles against Georgia Tech and his Duke career is over.

It’s a hit for Duke certainly but fans tend to focus on that and forget about the personal. What a terrible break for a guy who has done so much for Duke football. Our hearts really go out to him. Hopefully the surgery goes well and the rehab better.
