DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke quarterback Anthony Boone is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone.

Coach David Cutcliffe said Sunday that Boone does not need surgery to repair the broken bone but no timetable has been set for his return.

Boone broke his collarbone in the second quarter of Duke's 28-14 victory over Memphis on Saturday.

Brandon Connette - the Blue Devils' short-yardage specialist who also has played tight end - will be the starter this week in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Georgia Tech.

Connette was 14-of-21 for 198 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns against Memphis.

Freshman Parker Boehme will be Connette's backup.
