    Jags lose LB Peterson to knee injury

    NFL.com wire reports

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Aug. 26, 2006) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars probably will have to start the season without leading tackler Mike Peterson.

    The team's middle linebacker and emotional leader sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in the 29-18 loss against Tampa Bay and likely won't be ready for the season opener Sept. 10 against Dallas.

    Peterson led the team in tackles during each of his first three seasons in Jacksonville. He had a career-high 190 tackles and six sacks last year. He also had three interceptions, including one for a touchdown.

    Peterson hurt his knee on Tampa Bay's opening drive. He left the game, went to the locker room for tests and did not return. He walked out of the stadium on crutches, but was clearly disappointed.

    "I don't know, man," Peterson said when asked about his return. "I don't know."

    Sucks to be them. Also makes one wonder if we all shouldn't bump that "Mojo" thread a few more times before the last preseason game...

    I had their game vs. Tampa tonight. Lefty looked okay, but didn't have much time to throw and there were some drops.

    Their D didn't impress me much.

    They were 12-4 last year. I'd say as of right now, they can't do that again in 2006.

    i was going to say its a big loss for them for the Cowboys game but considering the Cowboys already dont run the ball well and they are still going to go up against probably the best run stopping d-line in the NFL with their 2 big DT's then i dont think its really that big a deal. Peterson's strength is being a run stopper more than being in pass coverage so really the Jags while they will probably miss him a bit, it wont be a big loss for them in that game.

    I'm sure Clinton Portis has something to say about another preseason injury.

    Peterson would be a very big loss for them, he's quite a player. Without him their linebacking core is pretty pedestrian. But they still have those two monsters clogging the middle.

    The team's middle linebacker and emotional leader sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Saturday night against Tampa Bay and likely won't be ready for the season opener Sept. 10 against Dallas.


    Jones, a starting fullback who also splits carries with running back Fred Taylor, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. It was the opposite knee Jones injured during his final season at Florida State.

    "Really good news considering what it could have been," coach Jack Del Rio said. "The thought is that they should be back sometime during the Dallas week, ready for the opener."


    Peterson hurt his knee on Tampa Bay's opening drive. He left the game, went to the locker room for tests and did not return. He walked out of the stadium on crutches but was clearly disappointed.


    "I don't know, man," Peterson said when asked about his return. "I don't know."

    Peterson led the team in tackles during each of his first three seasons in Jacksonville. He had a career-high 190 tackles and six sacks last year. He also had three interceptions, including one for a touchdown.
