Don’t worry about Myles Jack’s injury

NFL: AFC Championship-Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been healthy through most of the 2018 offseason and don’t really have anyone coming back off of a major injury, however linebacker Myles Jack has missed a lot of the practices and was slowly being worked back in this past week. Some fans have been concerned about Jack’s injury, because of his knee issue prior to the 2017 NFL Draft, but Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone doesn’t seem to be too concerned.

“It was like we could put him (Jack) in there, and he’s just coming off, so he hasn’t had a lot of time to condition as much as I would like him to do to put him in there,” Marrone said when asked about why Jack didn’t participate in team drills last week. “I think he is ready to go, and I just didn’t want to take a chance of putting him in there and not being at the best he can from a conditioning standpoint.”

Jack figures to be a big part of the Jaguars defense going forward, moving to the middle linebacker position “officially” full time going forward. He started to come on last season and show exactly why he was getting that Top 10 draft hype, making big plays down the stretch of the season, including in the NFL playoffs.
