In Mike Mularkey's press conference yesterday, he said that defensive tackle Terrance Knighton would miss most of the offseason activities due to an eye injury earlier in the month that required emergency surgery to repair. The injury will require roughly three months of recovery before Knighton will be cleared to return to the field.
According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Knighton has taken a solid step in the right direction towards recovery as he has regained vision in the eye that suffered the injury.

Knighton, 25, is entering the final year of his contract since being drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He has started in 45 games for the Jaguars in three seasons, recording 5.5 sacks and 75 career tackles.
