Duke's Bryon Fields (ACL) is dealing with some soreness in his knee, coach David Cutcliffe said, but nothing unexpected. "He's looked incredible," Cutcliffe said of Fields, who missed all last season. "He won't back down, so we had to back him down a little." Cutcliffe said he expects Fields to get some work in Friday's scrimmage.

Duke QB Thomas Sirk (Achilles) still hasn't participated in team drills during fall camp and won't scrimmage Friday. David Cutcliffe says he needs to see Sirk cut, change directions and run at his normal 40 time by early next week if he's to start Week 1. "It's going to be nip and tuck," Cutcliffe said.

Jack Sears, the top uncommitted 2017 QB prospect, is now on board with Duke.

Duke depends on DeVon Edwards

When it comes to returning kicks, why wouldn't the Blue Devils? Edwards' six career return touchdowns make him a versatile threat every time he fields a kickoff, and he's been recognized by Phil Steele. Steele's All-Americans (Insider)
