Jaguars Place Aaron Kampman On Injured Reserve

Aaron Kampman never really got going with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and now it appears as though his season is over.

The Aaron Kampman experiment in Jacksonville appears to be over. The team has put him on injured reserve, according to Tania Gaguli.

As you might have guessed, Aaron Kampman is finally going on injured reserve. #jaguars

Kampman gets a significant raise next year so you can imagine that the Jaguars will probably leave him by the wayside, or at least that's what our Jaguars blog Big Cat Country thinks.

Kampman suffered a hamstring injury sometime during the bye week and missed the game against the Colts. If Kampman winds up in injured reserve again, I have a hard time seeing him back on the Jaguars again in 2012. It was a low-risk move this season, given Kampman's salary was only $2.45 million. In 2012 however, his salary jumps to $4.9 million. That's a lot of money to pay an older defensive end who's suffered two ACL tears in back to back seasons and has ended up on injured reserve three years in a row.
