Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was expected to miss at the minimum three months of the Jaguars offseason program, and the general feeling was that he could miss more than that. Knighton had to undergo emergency eye surgery after an incident in a local nightclub. Knighton tweeted earlier in the week that he had gotten some great news from his eye doctor and has been back at the facility doing light work.

According to a source, Knighton could be cleared for full workouts soon and his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. The source also tells me that the Jaguars could make an announcement on Knighton's recovery process and how well it's going sometime this week, likely on Tuesday before the start of the next round of OTAs.

There was a lot of initial fear about Knighton's injury potentially knocking him out for the season and threatening his career, but his surgery was successful and by all accounts his rehab has been going fantastic. As I get more information on his recovery process, I will update on his status.
