There is a good chance that with Chark’s injury that he will miss the rest of the season. Before his injury, he had no receptions in one of the league’s marquee days.

The Jaguars should know the severity of the injury in the morning when Chark undergoes more tests.

It’s a tough blow for Chark. This could impact his life moving forward, as next March he’ll be a free agent.

Teams may be leery to sign him. Or sign him to a one-year prove-it deal that will be a low-risk for the franchise.

This season, Chark appeared in 3 games with three starts. He has had seven receptions for 154 yards and two touchdowns.

His best game of the season came in the season-opener. However, the past two games (minus Thursday’s game), he has not had more than 68 yards.

Chark had three receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans to begin the season.

In his career, he has appeared in 42 games, including 29 starts. Chark has had 147 receptions for 2,042 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Also, he has two carries for 20 yards.
