Some football injuries are more serious than others but Jack Wohlabaugh’s injury this past week was a real gut punch for Duke’s Blue Devils.

Wohlabaugh, a fifth-year senior, tore his right ACL in practice and will miss the 2020 season. Having recovered from an ankle injury last year, he was considered one of the nation’s best centers and an NFL prospect, and was on the watch list for the Outland Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding interior lineman in college football.

Duke coach David Cutcliffe, on his weekly radio show, called Wohlabaugh’s injury heart-breaking. But he also used an old military expression — “Close ranks and keep marching” — in describing the situation.

The Blue Devils on Monday released the two-deep depth chart for Saturday’s opener at Notre Dame and the offensive line had: Taylor at center with Monk starting at right guard and Devery Hamilton at right tackle, and Maurice McIntyre at left guard and Casey Holman at left tackle.
