Terrance Knighton's road back from an eye injury may be nearing an end after the defensive tackle spent a large portion of Sunday's practice working with the Jaguars' No. 1 defense, according to the AP's Mark Long. C.J. Mosley started Friday night at defensive tackle against the Saints and has been listed on the team's depth chart ahead of Knighton.
An offseason incident at a nightclub left Knighton with an eye injury that required surgery. That kept him out of offseason workouts and had him way behind others when training camp opened.
Knighton has been a fixture on the defensive line since he was taken by Jacksonville in the first round of the 2010 draft. An ankle injury last season forced him to miss the first three games of his career but he has otherwise started every game for the Jaguars.
