Duke kicked off summer camp Monday, and did so without one of its top offensive threats on the field.
Head coach David Cutcliffe confirmed to reporters that Braxton Deaver is in the midst of serving a suspension for unspecified reasons. His absence won’t be long, however, as he’s expected to return Aug. 9.
The suspension is an ongoing one, one that cost him to miss summer workouts with his teammates.
“He’s doing a few things to satisfy me, which I expect to be done in a timely manner,” Cutcliffe said. “He should be finished with those things and ready to go and in great spirits and attitude by August 9. I’m looking forward to that for him.”
Deaver started all 14 games for the Blue Devils, finishing second on the team in receptions (46), receiving yards (600) and receiving touchdowns (four).
