Jaguars DT Marks on season-ending IR
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars are putting defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks on injured reserve.
Marks tore the triceps muscle in his right arm at Baltimore on Sunday and will missed the final seven games. Tyson Alualu, Abry Jones and rookie Michael Bennett are expected to fill the void.
Marks missed the first five games of the season while recovering from knee surgery in January. So he’ll end up missing 12 games in his second year of a four-year, $18 million contract.
Running back T.J. Yeldon (foot) missed practice Tuesday while receiver Allen Hurns (abdomen/foot) practiced in full after missing a walkthrough Monday.
Hurns traveled to Philadelphia to visit a sports hernia specialist Monday but plans to play Thursday night against Tennessee.
Hurns says there’s ”a possibility of surgery, but it all depends on how it heals up.”
