Locked into a tough battle with ACC adversary North Carolina on Thursday night, the undefeated Miami Hurricanes suffered a potentially crushing blow, as star running back Duke Johnson was forced to leave the game in the first quarter. 

The Associated Press' Tim Reynolds has the news:

Duke Johnson heading into the locker room was not the sight the Canes needed right now.
