Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was injured while trying to break up a fight in which his friend was involved at Pure Nightclub in Jacksonville early Sunday morning, his agent Tony Fleming said. Fleming said Knighton did not throw any punches and, contrary to the police report, did not threaten to shoot anyone. "It wasn't his altercation, it wasn't his argument," Fleming said.
Terrance Knighton broke his silence through a Twitter post today. "Thank you everyone for the support," he said on his account. "I plan on making a full recovery. Thank you fans, family and friends." Knighton suffered an eye injury after being hit in the face with a bottle. Knighton was hit in both the back of his head and on his face when he was trying to break up a fight that involved a friend of his early Sunday morning.
Cecil Shorts has heard it all, and you know what? He’s not arguing. The Jaguars are continuing their off-season program this week. Next week, they begin the on-field part of the off-season. As they do, observers will tell you Shorts must improve, that two receptions – even for a rookie in a struggling offense with a rookie quarterback – just isn’t enough.
Obviously no one on the Jaguars is under more pressure in 2012 than Blaine Gabbert. But the quarterback is such an obvious choice, we will set him aside and go a different direction, to one of the people Gabbert or Chad Henne will need to be productive if the Jacksonville offense is going to make a significant jump. Wide receiver Mike Thomas will have better coaching with Jerry Sullivan and a better supporting cast with
Laurent Robinson, Taylor Price and, presumably, a high draft pick in the mix.
