Paul Posluszny Injury Update: Jacksonville Jaguars Linebacker Undergoes Shoulder MRI, According To Report

The five-year veteran suffered a potentially serious shoulder injury in Jacksonville's season finale.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny suffered what the team termed a shoulder sprain in their season-ending victory against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, reports Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times Union, and underwent an MRI scan Monday to determine the severity of the injury. "The injury appears to be serious," Ganguli says.

Posluszny led the Jags with 119 tackles (69 solo) in 2011. He also tied for the team lead with two interceptions and five tackles for loss. The Penn State product signed a six-year contract with Jacksonville prior to the 2011 season. Before joining the Jaguars, Posluszny played four seasons with the Buffalo Bills, tallying 397 tackles (294 solo), four intereptions, three sacks, and four forced fumbles.

Despite their 5-11 record, the Jags fielded a strong defensive unit, thanks in part to Posluszny's performance. Jacksonville ranked No. 9 in rushing defense, No. 8 in pass defense, No. 6 in yards allowed, and No. 11 in points allowed during the 2011 campaign.
