Jaguars QB Blake Bortles Has Right Wrist Surgery

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles underwent right wrist surgery Friday for a condition that kept him on the injury report all season, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Bortles dealt with the issue in his throwing wrist since early December 2016. The Jaguars elected to avoid surgery last offseason and treat the injury with a variety of shots. The shots became less effective into the season and made the need for surgery inevitable.

The surgery repaired a small tear and full recovery is expected.

The Jaguars’ decision to pick up Bortles’ fifth-year option was somewhat of a gamble because the contract was guaranteed for injury, meaning he would be owed the full amount if he cannot pass a physical before the league year starts.
