Jaguars offensive lineman Wells out with broken right thumb
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars are down another offensive lineman after Josh Wells broke his right thumb during training camp.
Wells injured his thumb in practice Monday and will have surgery Thursday.
The Jaguars already are without backup center/guard Luke Bowanko, who is on the physically unable to perform list with a hip injury. Center Brandon Linder (groin) and left tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee) also are sidelined but should return soon.
For Wells, it's the second consecutive season he's missed time with a hand injury. He tore ligaments in his left thumb during the 2015 preseason and ended up on injured reserve.
Wells says ''obviously it's disappointing, but I've got to kind of take it as it comes and do the next thing to get back and get better.''
