DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Duke running back Re'quan Boyette is out for
the season with a knee injury. Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe said Wednesday that Boyette will redshirt because he has yet to fully heal from knee surgery.
The senior co-captain was projected to be Duke's starting tailback after leading the team in rushing during the previous two seasons. He hurt his left knee during a preseason scrimmage, had surgery Aug. 9 and hasn't played a down this season. After sitting out this season, he plans to return for his final
year in 2009. He has 1,072 career yards rushing on 251 carries.
