Leon Wright To Miss Rest Of Season

Junior cornerback Leon Wright will miss Duke's last five games of the season with a re-aggravation of a left hamstring injury sustained in the Blue Devils' win over Vanderbilt Saturday, head coach David Cutcliffe announced Thursday.

Wright has started 18 of 29 contests in his career while recording five interceptions, including one this year. He also served as the team's punt returner.

"We learned today that Leon will miss our final five games," Cutcliffe said. "This news is very disappointing because he is a young man of excellent character who has a great understanding of what it takes to compete in our conference. We certainly will miss his contributions on the field and wish him the best in recovery."

Also notable in the injury report for Saturday's game at Wake Forest: Freshman safety Matt Daniels is listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury, while wide receivers Raphael Chestnut and Austin Kelly are listed as doubtful for the second straight week.
