Despite Terrance Knighton's eye injury, he's still spending time with his team, and he's apparently in good spirits according to @JaguarsInsider.

Great to see Terrance Knighton in the building today hanging with teammates.Focused on recovery and is in great spirits.

I really enjoy reading and hearing about guys that are injured still coming in to work to help out in any way they can. Even if Knighton can't participate in his normal role, seeing him there must be reassuring for his teammates and coaches. Too often we hear and see players that don't put forth any type of real effort until they're fully healthy and fully ready to participate in their normal role. I'm a firm believer that players should treat their job as, well, a job and be there as often as possible even if they can't fully participate in the physical part. Hopefully this type of thing continues and isn't a one or two time thing. As always, we wish Potroast a quick and speedy recovery.
