DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke redshirt senior safety Jeremy Cash underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Wednesday.

A 6-2, 205-pound native of Miami, Fla., Cash has earned All-America honors in each of his two seasons with the Blue Devils while helping Duke to a two-year record of 19-8, the 2013 ACC Coastal Division championship and consecutive bowl game appearances.

In 27 career games at Duke, Cash has compiled 232 tackles, 20.0 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, six interceptions, 11 pass breakups, seven QB pressures, six caused fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He has reached double figures in the tackle column 10 times including a career-high 14 stops against both Georgia Tech and Troy in 2013. Additionally, Cash has posted six or more tackles in 23 games with the Blue Devils.

As a team captain in 2014, Cash recorded 111 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 quarterback sacks, two interceptions, seven pass breakups, five QB pressures, four caused fumbles and one fumble recovery en route to earning second team All-America honors from both the Walter Camp Foundation and Football Writers Association of America. He is the only defensive back in the nation to record 100-plus tackles, 10.0-plus tackles for loss and 5.0-plus sacks this past season.

The Blue Devils return 51 lettermen and 15 starters from last year’s team that went 9-4 and earned a berth in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Duke begins spring practice on Friday, February 6.
