Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles underwent surgery on his right wrist Friday, the team confirmed Tuesday.
Bortles was listed on the injury report throughout last season after electing to avoid offseason surgery. However, after a playoff run to the AFC Championship Game, an ESPN report stated that the surgery became "inevitable."
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the surgery fixed a small tear in Bortles' wrist and a full recovery is expected.
Bortles threw for 3,867 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this past season. He completed 60 percent of his passes for the first time in his career.
The Jaguars picked up Bortles' $19 million fifth-year option last May. The deal is only guaranteed for injury until the first day of the league year in March. Bortles cannot be released while he is rehabbing the injury.
