Duke defensive back DeVon Edwards will have season-ending surgery after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee Saturday, coach David Cutcliffe said during a Sunday teleconference.
Edwards' left leg appeared to buckle as he returned Notre Dame's first kickoff 21 yards. On the first kickoff after Edwards went down, Blue Devils junior running back Shaun Wilson returned the kick 96 yards for a touchdown, the first score of the Blue Devils' 38-35 upset win over the Irish.
A redshirt senior captain, Edwards has earned numerous All-ACC and All-America mentions, as he has six career kickoff return touchdowns, one shy of the ACC record. Edwards also has two career interception returns for touchdowns, and he was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team last week.
Duke (2-2) hosts Virginia (1-3) on Saturday.
