... and are not able to further comment at this time. Our concern and our focus is on Terrance and his health and recovery (end).

To say the least, eye injuries are a scary business, and it's unnerving that we don't know more about Knighton's injury. Knighton is an integral part of the Jaguars' defense, but more importantly, we wish Terrance Knighton a speedy and full recovery.
