Just two days after being dealt a lopsided defeat at the hands of their biggest rivals, the Blue Devils were dealt another blow Monday.
Redshirt senior offensive guard Cody Robinson announced via Twitter that he re-aggravated a back injury against North Carolina last weekend—an injury that will end his football career with Duke.
As most people have heard by now, I reinjured my back Saturday against unc, ending my football playing career. (1/4)— Cody Robinson (@CRobinson65) November 9, 2015
The McMinnville, Tenn., native returned to the lineup Saturday against the Tar Heels after being held out of action for the last several weeks. Robinson entered this season with just one career start under his belt, and was tasked with helping to fill in the hole at right guard created by the graduation of All-American and first round NFL draft pick Laken Tomlinson.
I just wanted to thank everyone for all calls, and messages the past few days and for all the support throughout the years. (2/4)— Cody Robinson (@CRobinson65) November 9, 2015
Also, a big thank you to the Duke training staff and Doctors for all the hard work they did to get me back on the field. (3/4)— Cody Robinson (@CRobinson65) November 9, 2015
While I may not be on the field playing anymore, I will still have an active role on the team. #DukeGang (4/4)— Cody Robinson (@CRobinson65) November 9, 2015
