Jaguars WR Jaelen Strong Done for the Season After Tearing ACL in Knee

Jaguars wide receiver Jaelen Strong said Monday he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee at San Francisco, the Associated Press reports. Strong announced the news in two Instagram posts, saying “this lil setback setting me up for a greater comeback.”

Strong caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in a 44-33 loss to the 49ers. It was his debut with the team.

The Jaguars (10-5) claimed Strong off waivers from Houston early in the season, and he spent the previous five weeks on the practice squad before getting called up because of injuries. His first reception went for a 5-yard score, but he was hurt late in the game.
