Duke football's Daniel Jones sidelined indefinitely, Mark Gilbert out for season

Duke football's Daniel Jones sidelined indefinitely, Mark Gilbert out for season

The Blue Devils' victory against Northwestern Saturday was not as rosy as it may have seemed.

Quarterback Daniel Jones fractured his left clavicle at the end of the third quarter and will be out indefinitely after surgery Sunday morning, per a team release. All-ACC cornerback Mark Gilbert was helped off the field in the first half and is now out for the season after hip surgery Sunday as well.

The two join a growing list of key Blue Devils in the training room, as wide receiver Aaron Young and safety Jeremy McDuffie didn't suit up for Saturday's contest due to lingering injuries.

Losing Jones is a major blow for the Blue Devils. The third-year starter has begun the 2018 season looking stronger than ever, completing more than 74 percent of his 39 pass attempts and posting five total touchdowns without a turnover in Duke's first two contests.

Former Blue Devil quarterback Anthony Boone missed four weeks with the same injury as Jones in 2013. That Duke team went 1-2 in its stretch without Boone, losing a pair of ACC contests.

Jones' injury was the second scare of the game after Gilbert had already left in the first half.
