Jaguars guard Joeckel undergoes knee surgery to repair ACL, MCL

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars announced guard Luke Joeckel underwent successful surgery to reconstruct his ACL and repair the MCL and a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee on Thursday.

The surgeries - while successful - will end the offensive lineman's season. He was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week.

The 2013 second overall pick was injured on a running play during a scoring drive in the second quarter of the Week 4 win over the Indianapolis Colts in London.

Joeckel started in all four games for the Jaguars up until the injury. He primarily started at left guard but manned the left tackle position in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Jaguars passed on picking up Joeckel's fifth-year option in the offseason and he is set to become a free agent. It is possible that Joeckel has played his last game in Jacksonville. 

Joeckel has started in all 39 games he has appeared in over the last four seasons.
