The program’s official injury report was released on Thursday afternoon with two notable additions from the Miami game. Duke will be without Dezmond Johnson and and Jamal Wallace. Johnson has been the starting left defensive end while Wallace is the primary backup behind Carlos Wray and Jamal Bruce along the interior of the line.
The loss of Johnson will likely push fourth year junior Kyler Brown into the startling lineup with classmate Britton Grier also being in consideration. In the middle Duke will rely on Mike Ramsay and A.J. Wolf to help shoulder the load.
Starting running back Shaquille Powell is listed as questionable, but is expected to play.
