Duke senior quarterback Thomas Sirk, freshman safety Javon Jackson and redshirt freshman defensive tackle Zach Morris each will have season-ending surgery on Friday, Duke announced on Thursday.
Sirk will have his left Achilles tendon repaired after suffering a partial tear last week. Jackson will undergo a procedure to address a fracture in his left foot while Morris, who missed all of last season after suffering a torn right anterior cruciate ligament in June 2015, will have micro fracture surgery on his right knee.
Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, Duke’s head team physician and the director of Duke Sports Science Institute, will handle the operation on Morris. Dr. Annunziato Amendola, also of the Duke Sports Science Institute, will perform the procedures on Jackson and Sirk.
The Blue Devils also said Thursday that wide receiver Keyston Fuller would miss Saturday’s opener against N.C. Central with a leg injury.
