Miami DE Demetrius Jackson Out For Season With Injury Suffered vs. Virginia Tech

Miami is down one of the key members of its elite front seven for the rest of the season: defensive end Demetrius Jackson.

Jackson, a redshirt junior in the defensive line rotation for The U, had surgery on Monday after suffering an injury to a “right lower extremity” during Saturday’s big win over Virginia Tech.

The timing is especially tough, considering Miami’s impending match-up with Notre Dame and its elite rushing attack.

Jackson tweeted about the injury on Monday.


Jackson  does not start for the Hurricanes, but he is a major contributor. He has 18 total tackles on the year, tied for a team-high in tackles for loss with 7.5, and is second on the team with 3.5 sacks.

The Hurricanes host the Fighting Irish at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday night. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
