Woodson To Undergo Surgery Today
Jaguar wide receiver Danny Woodson Jr is scheduled to have surgery today to repair his ruptured Achilles’ suffered near the end of the Jags game against Arkansas State.
Woodson’s injury typically has a six month recovery time.
The sophomore transfer from the University of Alabama was granted a waiver from the NCAA allowed him to play immediately for the Jags. He caught two passes for 54 yards against the Red Wolves including a 47-yard completion to put the Jags at the 2 yard line and gave him his third reception of over 40 yards in the last two games.
His season ends with 26 receptions for 439 yards and four touchdowns. He ranked fourth on the team in catches, third in receiving yards and second among those with 14 or more catches in yards per catch (16.9).
The previous week at Texas State, Woodson caught two touchdown passes of 42 and 43 yards to help the Jaguars rally back and take the lead in the fourth quarter.
The Jags will take three days off starting Thursday before returning to regular game-week preparation mode to prepare for their game at Navy on Saturday, November 16.
