Daryl Smith injury: Jaguars LB had surgery in October

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Daryl Smith revealed that he had groin surgery back in October and still hopes to play in 2012.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been without linebacker Daryl Smith, arguably their best defensive player, all season long in 2012 due to an injury. Smith injured his groin in training camp and then suffered a setback trying to come back from the injury too soon. On Monday, Smith revealed that he had surgery on his groin back in October, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union ($).

Even though the Jaguars are 2-10, Smith wants to play in either or both of the last two games - Dec. 23 against New England and Dec. 30 at Tennessee. To that end, he revealed he underwent late-October "corrective" surgery.

Smith was placed on injured reserve with designation to return last month, meaning he's eligible to come back for possibly the final two games of the 2012 season if he's healthy, but it's not much of a surprise Smith wound up having some surgery on his injury.
