The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without the services of newly signed tight end Julius Thomas until the regular season opener and now have reportedly confirmed that safety Johnathan Cyprien will also miss the entire preseason.
According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Cyprien has broken his right hand and will be out until Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers.
#jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien out for preseason after breaking right hand last night. Cast already on. Know more at 1— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) August 15, 2015
Told Cyprien's break is similar to Julius Thomas' break. ... Not a full cast on Cyp's hand. #Jaguars— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) August 15, 2015
If there's any consolation, it's that these injuries occurred early enough in the preseason to not cause them to miss any regular season games.
