Like Duke, Louisville, Pitt Both Have Injuries

A tough way to start a season

Oklahoma v Texas Tech

Duke’s not the only ACC team to have an early injury: Louisville freshman Mike James is out for the season with an Achilles injury and at Pitt, former Duke guard and K assistant Jeff Capel saw transfer Jamarius Burton suffer a minor knee injury.

Fortunately, he’s not going to be out as long as James; he’ll parallel Blue Devil AJ Griffin and be out for 4-6 weeks.

A transfer from Texas Tech, Burton is expected to be a key for Pitt.
