Coach Gus Bradley says Babin is expected to be fully healthy in time for training camp.
Bradley says Babin's groin "just didn't feel right," so he went to Philadelphia for a second opinion and opted for surgery. Bradley adds that "everything went well, went really well."
The Jaguars claimed Babin off waivers from the Eagles in November, bringing in the two-time Pro Bowler in hopes of beefing up one of the league's worst pass rushes. Babin had seven sacks last season, a year after totaling 18.
The 33-year-old Babin has dealt with knee and groin injuries this year. He is due $4.225 million in base salary in 2013.
