“We’re all certainly disappointed for Jeremy, especially in the sense that he’ll miss being on the field with his teammates for his final game in a Duke uniform,” head coach David Cutcliffe said in a press release. “It’s really just so unfortunate because of the type of competitor, teammate and leader he is for our program. Jeremy’s incredible collegiate career should not have ended in Winston-Salem, but it did. As with every young man in our locker room, his health is what is most important. Going forward, we must continue our preparation for Indiana, and I know our team—and especially our defense—will embrace the challenge.”
Cash was a unanimous All-America team selection. He finishes his career at Duke with 333 career tackles, eight sacks and six interceptions in 39 games. He holds the school record with 16 forced fumbles in his three years at Duke.
This season, he recorded 101 tackles, 18.0 tackles for lost yardage, 2.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.
Red shirt junior Corbin McCarthy will likely fill Cash's void for the Blue Devils' bowl game.
