Out for season

  C.J. Duncan hauled in 28 passes for 441 yards and four touchdowns last season.

C.J. Duncan, a versatile sophomore who ranked among Vanderbilt's top receivers last year, is expected to miss the upcoming season due to injury, coach Derek Mason announced today.

Duncan, a product of St. James School in Montgomery, Ala., suffered a lower-leg injury during special team drills near the end of practice Tuesday afternoon in Vanderbilt Stadium.

"I know C.J. is disappointed with the injury, and we share his disappointment," Mason said. "He's one of our most versatile and proven offensive performers, but even more than that, C.J. is very much a team-oriented player. As he recuperates, C.J. will be an encouraging and helpful presence to the receiving corps.

"We have several talented receivers on the roster with the ability to contribute more significantly to our offense. We expect them to step up to this challenge," Mason added.

In 2014, Duncan shared the Commodore team lead with four touchdown catches, ranked second with 441 receiving yards, and third with 28 receptions. He started nine games at wide receiver, and was competing for a starting job this preseason.

The Commodores are off the practice field today, returning for two sessions Thursday.
