JACKSONVILLE – Another week, another weapon lost.
Tight end Dan Arnold, a key part of the Jaguars' offense in recent months, will miss extended time with a knee injury sustained Sunday.
"He's out for a while," Head Coach Urban Meyer said.
Meyer, speaking Monday at his next-day media availability, said Arnold sustained a medial collateral ligament injury during the Jaguars' 21-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at TIAA Bank Field Sunday. Meyer said the fifth-year veteran will be placed on injured reserve, though Meyer said it was uncertain on Monday if Arnold will miss the rest of the regular season.
The Jaguars (2-9) have six games remaining.
Arnold, acquired by the Jaguars in September in a trade with the Carolina Panthers, caught 28 passes in 324 yards in eight games with the Jaguars this season. He sustained his injury Sunday on his lone reception of the game – a nine-yard pass from quarterback Trevor Lawrence early in the second quarter.
The Jaguars have been without running back/wide receiver Travis Etienne Jr. since he sustained a preseason foot injury, with wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. out for the season with an ankle injury since Week 4. Wide receiver/returner Jamal Agnew sustained a season-ending hip injury last Sunday in a loss to San Francisco.
