Will Rackley Injury: Jaguars OL 'Out 3-4 Weeks'

Following an injury during practice Tuesday that required second-year offensive lineman Will Rackley to be carted off the practice field, more details were revealed when Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey spoke to the media on Wednesday. Via Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union, Mularkey told the media that Rackley will be out 3-4 weeks with a high ankle sprain on his right ankle that had him in a boot on Wednesday.

Taking his place on the starting offensive line will be veteran guard Jason Spitz, according to Mularkey. Spitz is a former member of the Packers that signed a three-year deal with the Jaguars in 2011, but has not yet made a start with the team and hasn't made a start in the NFL since 2009.

Considering Rackley had an x-ray to see if he broke the ankle, three to four weeks is a blow for the offensive line, but far from the worst case scenario. It sounds as if Rackley should be back in time for the regular season.
