The Jacksonville Jaguars have not been among the elite football teams in the NFL the last few years to say the least. There is, however, one thing you can attest to if you are fan of professional football: This team is tough as hell.
That was no more apparent than what the Jags reported Monday morning. In Sunday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jags quarterback Blake Bortles suffered a Grade 1 AC joint sprain and played through the injury.
An AC joint sprain is a common shoulder injury, especially in football. In some cases, ligaments in the shoulder can be stretched and strained. In more severe cases, the ligaments can be torn.
There is no confirmation on how severe Bortles’s injury is right now and information is sure to come later in the week. I would venture to guess that his injury is one of a mild nature because he finished the game.
