Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton participated in drills with his helmet on the field on Thursday, his first on-field action since having eye surgery last month. Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union posted that while he wasn't expected to participate with the Jaguars until training camp, his current recovery progress could effect that positively.
When we saw him walking off the field yesterday, his eye seemed slightly swollen. But it doesn't appear to be a concern for Knighton whose participation has steadily increased this week. He was still working off to the side, with fellow recovering defensive lineman John Chick, rather than with the rest of the defensive line. But this marks progress.
Knighton's eye was injured during a bar fight back in April. His eye was lacerated after some glass came off a broken vodka bottle. He had surgery on the injured eye almost immediately after the injury was sustained.
