Miami Hurricanes quarterback Tyler Van Dyke is out for the rest of today’s matchup against the Duke Blue Devils today. He was injured in the second quarter after taking a sack and landing on his throwing shoulder. He left the field and headed down the tunnel toward the locker room.

Backup Jake Garcia will fill in for Van Dyke, who is reportedly going in for X-rays.

Van Dyke has led Miami to a 3-3 record this season, throwing for over 1,600 yards and nine touchdowns in 2022. The sophomore was benched in Miami’s shocking loss to Middle Tennessee State in September, but retained the starting job.

Garcia is a freshman who has appeared in three games this year. He’s contributed 272 passing yards but no touchdowns. The majority of those yards came in the MTSU loss, where he was put in for a struggling Van Dyke.
