Aaron Kampman To Have A Reduced Role

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman is recovering from his second torn ACL in as many seasons. When he was with the Green Bay Packers in 2009, he tore his left ACL. In the 2010 season, during practice between games, Kampman tore his right ACL. Having just gone through ACL rehabilitation the previous season, it makes it a little easier this year, but the team is still going to ease him back into things.

Kampman practiced last night in full 11-on-11 drills for the first time all season. Kampman has played nearly every snap in his NFL career, including roughly 70 a game for the Jaguars last season. The team is looking to reduce that to about 45 snaps per game, at least initially. Newly signed defensive end Matt Roth, who played at the University of Iowa with Kampman, took snaps with the first team and is expected to be a starter. Kampman is going to move back to the left side of the defensive line, but will at times flop back and forth. I would imagine Roth will start on the right side of the line.
