Jaguars DE Aaron Kampman Out for the Season

Jaguars DE Aaron Kampman is done for the season after tearing his ACL in practice on Thursday.

Reported by NBC Sport’s just a short while ago, the Jaguars’ best defensive lineman, DE Aaron Kampman, will miss this week’s Texans-Jaguars game along with the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL in practice on Thursday.

From PFT:

In only eight games, Aaron Kampman had transformed himself into the leader of the Jaguars defense, not to mention their best defensive lineman.

Jacksonville will have to move on without him after learning that Kampman suffered a torn ACL at practice Thursday, ending his season. Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio announced the move at his Friday press conference. Kampman’s career in Green Bay ended with a torn ACL to his other knee, and he made a quick recovery to play well for the season’s first eight games.

This is a big break for the Texans offense which has allowed 21 sacks so far this season. For the Jaguars, they lose a player that was virtually their entire pass rush. Matt Schaub should have plenty of time in the pocket this Sunday, a big break from the great pass rushes they’ve seen so far this season.
