Duke quarterback Thomas Sirk sustained a ruptured left Achilles during a team workout on Tuesday morning, the school announced.

There is no timetable for his return, but he is expected to undergo surgery on Wednesday.

Sirk missed the 2013 with a ruptured right Achilles.

As a junior last year, Sirk started 12 games and recorded 3,428 total yards, the second most in a single season by a Blue Devils quarterback. Parker Boehme, who started one game last year, may fill in Sirk’s absence if the quarterback misses extended time during the 2016 season.
