Jaguars OT Austin Pasztor suffers hand injury, questionable to return

New, comments

The Jaguars are thin along the offensive line, and an injury to starting right tackle Austin Pasztor isn't welcome news.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Through the first quarter of play, the Jacksonville Jaguars have dominated the Chicago Bears. But an injury to the starting right tackle isn't good news to an offensive line that's already thin in depth.

Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union is reporting that offensive tackle Austin Pasztor suffered an injury against the Bears and most likely won't return tonight.

The 6'7", 308-pound behemoth wasn't originally a starter when he came to the Jaguars in 2012, but his play on the field when he had to fill in when an injury claimed Luke Joeckel and when the team traded Eugene Monroe earned him the starting spot going into this season.

UPDATE: Ryan O'Halloran from the Florida Times-Union is reporting Pasztor suffered a broken hand. We'll know more about a timetable for recovery soon.
