Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton will miss at least the next three months of the team's offseason program following eye surgery.
Coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Knighton won't even be at the team facility during workouts, prompting some concern considering his history of weight problems.
The 340-pound defender had surgery April 8 after being hit with a bottle at a Jacksonville nightclub. Knighton was hit in the back of his head and his face when he was trying to break up a fight involving a friend. An incident report said Knighton was kicked out of the club and reportedly made threats to shoot people.
Knighton's injury could force the Jaguars to draft a defensive tackle later this month. The Jaguars have the seventh pick in the first round.
