Earlier today Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reported that Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny had surgery on Jan. 11 to repair a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder. The injury, suffered in the final game of the regular season for the Jaguars against the Colts, was the only injury suffered by Posluszny all year who has struggled with injuries early in his still young career.

The surgery is expected to keep the linebacker out of offseason activities although he expects to be back in time for training camp. He told Ganguli:

"The only thing it’ll screw up is a training schedule," Posluszny said earlier this month, before he had the surgery. "When I’ll be able to get back into training 100 percent, but other than that it shoudln't be [a problem]. I don’t have vacations planned so it should be ok."

A labrum is a long recovery, but it is not an injury that should inhibit or slow Posluszny down once he returns to the game in August. The Jaguars credited him with 192 tackles on the season with two sacks and two interceptions.
