CLEMSON, S.C. -- Duke quarterback Thaddeus Lewis left the Blue Devils' game against Clemson after taking a hard hit.

The Atlantic Coast Conference leader in passing yards came up hobbling on his left leg after throwing a first-quarter incompletion on Saturday. He missed the Blue Devils' next series as he tried to practice pushing back from center on the sidelines.

He soon walked gingerly to the locker room.

The junior leads the ACC in passing yards and total offense per game. His 14 TD passes also lead the league.
