Dede Westbrook held out of Panthers game with injury

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Training Camp Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Dede Westbrook had been mysteriously absent from the action for all of the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Carolina Panthers preseason matchup and now we know why. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union is reporting that the rookie wide receiver was out due to injury.

Westbrook has been one of the stars of training camp and the preseason so far for the Jaguars. He had led the team with seven receptions and 173 yards for one touchdown so far.

Apparently, Westbrook was sore in pregame workouts and held out as a precautionary. I’m fine with that.

We’ll update this article as we learn more.
