Terrance Knighton Injury: Jaguars DT, 2 Others Cleared For Practice

The Jacksonville Jaguars received some encouraging news after practice on Sunday, as defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, along with tight end Zach Miller and guard Uche Nwaneri were all cleared for practice after passing physicals, according to Adam Caplan.

In three NFL seasons, Knighton has compiled 108 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. He has been a key component of the Jaguars defense since being drafted in 2009.

Miller is a depth piece at tight end for the Jags, as he has started just five games in his three-year career for the team and only played in four games in 2011.

Nwaneri is entering his sixth season with the Jaguars and has started every game for the team each of the last two seasons.
