Kampman Says Knee That Ended His 2010 Season is Fine

Defensive end Aaron Kampman’s first season with the Jaguars ended the same way his eighth and final season with the Packers did: On injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Signed to a four-year, $25 million contract last March, Kampman tore the ACL in his right knee in a November practice, less than a year after team the ACL in his left knee. Kampman is expected to be ready for training camp, and told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union that he’s training as he normally would in the off-season.

“It’s been great,” Kampman said of of his knee “I’m training like I normally would train, I don’t know why–well I kind of know why, I heal really well from these major injuries. Hopefully I don’t have to do anymore of them.”

The Jaguars did not address their pass rush in the 2011 NFL Draft. With second-year defensive ends Austen Lane, Larry Hart, and Aaron Morgan unable to work with defensive line coach Joe Cullen this off-season, the Jaguars will need a healthy Kampman to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks next season.
