Jaguars OL Haslem out for season with knee injury
Monday, August 8, 2011
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Backup offensive lineman Kevin Haslem will be placed on injured reserve after sustaining a knee injury in Jacksonville's scrimmage.
Coach Jack Del Rio says Haslem injured the medial collateral ligament and "some other things" in his left knee Saturday. Del says "we're talking months, not days or weeks" before Haslem will be ready to play again.
Haslem, a 6-foot-5, 304-pound guard/tackle from Rutgers, was one of three undrafted rookies to make the roster last season. He played in five games, but ended the year on IR because of a hand injury.
Del Rio says the club will bring in another offensive lineman to take his spot.
Haslem twisted his knee when he fell into a pile. It was Jacksonville's first significant injury of training camp.
