Daryl Smith Injury: Jaguars LB Likely Out Vs. Bengals

Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith likely won't be playing against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been without linebacker Daryl Smith through the preseason and three weeks into the regular season. The linebacker position has been one that has been picked on by opposing teams as the depth is strained with injuries to two starters in Smith and Clint Session, who is currently on the PUP list.

It doesn't look like Smith will be available again this Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I don’t think so," Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters on Monday about Smith being available for Sunday's game. "We’re going to move him into another phase of more football drills which is a good sign."

The exact injury Smith has hasn't exactly been described, other than being listed as a groin injury. Groin injuries however are a lot like high ankle sprains and other soft tissue injuries. They tend to linger and can be re-aggrevated rather easily and be caused to linger even longer.
