Just when it seemed Duke finally had its full complement of weapons available for the first time all season, another key player suffered an ill-timed injury.
Senior forward Amile Jefferson injured his right foot when he landed awkwardly on a first-half shot attempt during Duke’s 93-82 victory over Boston College on Saturday afternoon. Jefferson limped to the locker room with about seven minutes left before halftime and did not return to the bench until about 10 minutes remained in the game.

The right foot is the same one Jefferson fractured when he missed Duke’s final 27 games last season and received a medical redshirt afterward. Duke interim coach Jeff Capel told reporters in Durham on Saturday that the extent of the latest injury was not immediately clear.
