Searcy and Shelton Undergo Surgery

Jaguars offensive tackle Leon Searcy and fullback Daimon Shelton both underwent surgery today at about the same time that punter Bryan Barker suffered a sprained ankle at practice.

Searcy, who was injured on Monday, was operated on in Miami to repair his torn quadriceps tendon. "Leon's surgery went well," Jaguars head coach Tom Coughlin said following the morning practice. Coughlin later added that Searcy's status has not yet been determined and that he faces an extensive rehabilitation period.

Shelton had surgery to repair a broken finger on his left hand. He had a pin inserted and will be out indefinitely. His surgery was performed at Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute by Dr. Stephen Lucie and Dr. Bruce Steinberg.

Barker was injured during the morning practice session today, suffering a lateral ankle sprain. The X-rays on his right ankle were negative, and he will be out indefinitely. "When Bryan punted the ball, his foot came down immediately, and then he came down and hit a little bit towards the outside." Coughlin said that Steve Lindsey will handle the punting for now.

The Jaguars will have only one practice on Friday, at 8:40 a.m. at Ferrell Fields.
