Mike Elko issued an update on Riley Leonard at his weekly press conference on Monday afternoon.

Elko said Leonard remains “day-to-day” as he recovers from an ankle injury he suffered vs. Notre Dame back in Week 5. Duke was idle in Week 6 and played without Leonard in a 24-3 win over NC State in Week 7.

Leonard’s status will be a major factor in this game. When healthy, he’s one of the best dual threat quarterbacks in the country.

So far this season, Leonard has completed 62.7% of his passes for 912 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. He’s also rushed for 326 yards and 4 more scores on the ground.

Duke enters this game with a 5-1 record and is a legitimate threat to Florida State at the top of the ACC standings. The Seminoles currently lead the way with a 4-0 record in conference play, but Duke is also 2-0 with wins over the Wolfpack and Clemson. Duke’s lone loss this season came vs. Notre Dame.

Florida State has a strong history vs. Duke, but these programs have not met with Elko in charge. Duke won 9 games last season in Elko’s first year at the helm and are charging toward another bowl appearance in Year 2.

FSU is 19-0 all-time against Duke.
