Duke football must be ready to move forward without one of its key pieces up front: redshirt senior center Jack Wohlabaugh.
During practice on Tuesday, Wohlabaugh tore his right ACL, which will require surgery; Wohlabaugh will be out for an indefinite amount of time.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound center spent two seasons at Ohio State (2016-17) before transferring to Duke (Jan 2018). An Honorable Mention All-ACC selection in last season, Wohlabaugh has seen action in 22 games (1,477 snaps) — making 18 starts. Wohlabaugh was one of four returning starters along the offensive line for the Blue Devils.
Unfortunately, Duke had to announce another injured player: backup redshirt sophomore cornerback Ken Torain.
Torain will need surgery after suffering an injury to his right shoulder.
Tough news for Duke — starting C Jack Wohlabaugh is out indefinitely with a torn ACL.
