DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke quarterback Thomas Sirk has made it back for the start of preseason camp nearly six months after he ruptured his left Achilles tendon during an offseason conditioning workout.Sirk will take part in the Blue Devils first practice on Monday night, Coach David Cutcliffe said, but it will be in a limited role.While the teams medical staff has declared Sirk 100 percent ready and Cutcliffe says his quarterback feels great, he added theres a little bit of a mystery. So, the coaching staff is putting Sirk on a pitch count, not just on throws but on how much weve fatigued him and the plan is to let him work through his position drills and 7-on-7 passing workouts, among other drills.Cutcliffe said he will have a clearer picture of Sirks status a week and a half into this thing and see where he really is.Sirk is a redshirt senior who in his first season as the Blue Devils starter led them to their first bowl victory since 1961. He was the co-MVP of the overtime Pinstripe Bowl win over Indiana after rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another. Last season, he passed for 2,625 yards with 16 TDs and led the team in rushing with 803 yards and eight scores.Sirk was hurt Feb. 9 while running a 10-yard sprint with some teammates. He heard a pop in his left heel and immediately recognized the sound -- the same one he heard in his other heel in April 2013, when he ruptured his right Achilles tendon and was lost for that season.I thought I was going to see a totally crumbled youngster, Cutcliffe said. I saw a determined young man with great spirit and great attitude. ... I celebrate that every day.Sirk missed spring practice but set a goal of returning for the start of fall camp, and he is listed atop the preseason depth chart in the teams media guide. Duke opens the season Sept. 3 against North Carolina Central.Sirk has been working with the Blue Devils receivers all spring and summer, keeping his throwing arm and mental skills sharp while his heel heals.Hes not favoring any leg. Hes giving it all on his messed-up leg, as you would say, and he looks fluid to me, receiver Anthony Nash said. Hes not passive, hes not timid. Thats the main thing for him, just keeping that confidence.---Follow Joedy McCreary at http://twitter.com/joedyap.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy and Sam Shields are done for this season and perhaps forever in Green Bay.Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced Wednesday that neither would be activated off injured reserve. Instead, that designation went to undrafted rookie cornerback Makinton Dorleant.Lacy, the Packers leading rusher, went on injured reserve on Oct. 20 and subsequently underwent surgery on his left ankle. There was hope at the time that Lacy could return late in the season.Shields, the Packers top cornerback, hasnt played since he sustained a concussion in Week 1. He went on injured reserve two days before Lacy.Its unfortunate for Eddie and its unfortunate for Sam, but based on all the medical information and the conversations to this point, thats where we are, McCarthy said.McCarthy wouldnt say whether Lacy and Shields had setbacks or whether this decision was based on the need for another cornerback for Monday nights game at Philadelphia. The Packers lost cornerback Demetri Goodson to a knee injury in Sundays loss at Washingtton.dddddddddddd Dorleant has been on injured reserve since Sept. 5 because a hamstring injury he sustained in the preseason.Once again, these are more medical decisions, McCarthy said. And this is really a decision thats been made from the input of our medical staff.Theres no guarantee that Lacy or Shields ever plays for the Packers again. Lacy will be a free agent this offseason, and Shields concussion history may force the Packers to move on. Shields has one year remaining on the four-year, $39 million contract he signed in 2014, but his latest concussion was the fourth of his NFL career and second within nine months.McCarthy said he did not know whether Shields would be cleared to play again.Really, the conversation with Sam, I know particularly mine with him, is he needs to get healthy for himself and his family, McCarthy said. That needs to be his focus, and it is his focus. Thats what were focusing on.
