The pass-rush specialist suffered a nasty knee injury in Monday’s 38-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Chick was abusing San Diego left tackle Jared Gaither throughout the evening. Gaither resorted to holding Chick and drove Chick downward as he planted his foot on the ground. Chick’s knee buckled, ending a Rudy-esq season.
Chick (29) had accumulated 2.5 sacks in his first NFL season. The Utah State grad made a name for himself playing in Canada, where he was the CFL’s defensive MVP. He was picked up by the Indianapolis Colts last season but was waived due to front-office politics.
The Jaguars now have 20 players on IR. That doesn’t include the release/buy-outs of some other injured players.
