Jaguars DT D'Anthony Smith Injures Right Calf At Team's First Minicamp
In what should be the most unsurprising news of the day, Jaguars defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith was the only player injured in the first day of practice at the veteran mini-camp on Tuesday as he left with a left calf strain, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
Smith was a third-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and has played in a grand total of eight games during his NFL career, as he has been injured throughout. After tearing his Achilles tendon as a rookie, Smith missed his second season as well with a foot injury. It wasn't until his third season that he found the field, but was largely ineffective for the Jaguars before heading to the injured reserve for a third time in as many years, this time with a neck injury.
It's unlikely that the calf strain is anything serious and it would be shocking if it prevented him from participating in training camp, but it's another injury to a player with just one season remaining on the rookie contract he signed in 2010.
