Bere to Miss Remainder of 2016 Season

Duke suffered a second season ending injury on Saturday against Notre Dame as LB Tinashe Bere was lost for the remainder of 2016.

From Duke SID:

DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt sophomore linebacker Tinashe Bere will miss the remainder of the 2016 season after undergoing surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee.  He suffered the injury in Saturday’s 38-35 win over Notre Dame. 

 

Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, Duke’s head team physician and the director of Duke Sports Science Institute, administered the operation.

 

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Bere compiled 13 total tackles through four games this season including a season-high five in last week’s victory at Notre Dame. 

 

In 2015, Bere was an honorable mention Freshman All-America pick and Academic All-ACC choice after posting 58 tackles including 4.5 stops for lost yardage as Duke went 8-5 with a 44-41 overtime win over Indiana in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.  In 15 career games, Bere has amassed 71 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one caused fumble, one fumble recovery and two quarterback pressures.
