Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton has missed the last two games dealing with an ankle injury. The injury occurred prior to the bye week against the Houston Texans and it's been a noticeable absence. I'm not sure if the full injury has been disclosed, but if I had to guess I would say it's a high ankle sprain. Typically, those take a couple of weeks to work themselves out, especially with bigger guys. Knighton would have missed the bye week if there were a game, so he's dealt with the injury for a full three weeks.

The team returns to practice today, so we will get some kind of indication of Knighton's status for Sunday against the Houston Texans. If Knighton can play, that will be a huge boon. The Texans will no doubt be putting an emphasis on the run with Matt Leinart starting at quarterback, and in the last match up Arian Foster went over 100 yards with a touchdown. In order to have a chance, Knighton will need to be on the field and be effective.
