On top of a defeat at the hands of Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday afternoon, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been hit with one more setback as their wide receiver DJ Chark sustained a broken ankle during the game and is now uncertain as to when he will be able to return to on-field duties.

The injury took place on the third play from scrimmage as DJ Chark was blocking for his teammate James Robinson and after the latter received a tackle from behind, Robinson landed right on Chark’s ankle.

The gruesome collision caused the WR’s ankle to get bent in an unnatural direction and it fractured. Subsequently, Chark had to be carted off of the pitch.

Initially, Edwin Porras, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Medical Analyst at Fantasy Points revealed that Chark’s injury was classified as a classic ‘high ankle’, in addition to some knee valgus.

Furthermore, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network claimed on Twitter that Chark had broken his ankle (as reported by sources) and will be out indefinitely.

Chark had impressive numbers in the previous seasons, clocking a total of 13 touchdowns over the 2019 and 2020 seasons combined, as well as a 1,000-yard season in 2019. In case the 25-year-old fails to return this season, it would be a huge blow to Jaguars’ already 0-4 start.

Highlights:

  • Jaguars WR DJ Chark broke his ankle during the game against Bengals
  • The severity of the injury implies Chark will be out indefinitely
