John Chick injury: Jaguars DE to return to practice on Wednesday

The Jaguars defensive end contributed 2.5 sacks in 11 games in 2011 after being signed from the practice squad.

After spending training camp and the first six weeks of the season on the PUP list, Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told the media that defensive end John Chick is set to re-join the Jaguars at practice, beginning on Wednesday. Chick has been out since suffering a torn patella tendon in December 2011 that sent him to injured reserve and required surgery to repair.

Per NFL rules, any player that is designated on the PUP list at the beginning of the season must remain there for at least six weeks. After six weeks, the player is free to re-join practice at any time, but once they do the team has three weeks to add them to the active roster or they have to be moved to the injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

So Chick returning to practice does not mean that the defensive end will be in the lineup on Sunday, or even on the active roster. However, the three week clock will begin on Wednesday.

It will not begin, though, for Clint Session, as Mularkey said that the veteran linebacker is not yet ready to return to practice after suffering from multiple concussions during the 2011 season.
