Ian Rapoport reports that Jaguars DT Marcell Dareus is having surgery today to repair a core muscle injury. Rapoport says it’s a straightforward procedure that has a very high rate of full recovery and generally requires 4-6 weeks to heal.
If Dareus does end up having the procedure, he would miss an estimated four to six weeks.
Dareus, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2011. He signed a massive seven-year, $103.2 million contract that included $60 million guaranteed with the Bills back in 2015 before being traded to the Jaguars in 2017 for a 2018 sixth-round pick.
Dareus later agreed to restructure the agreement with the Jaguars this past February and is owed $2.835 million in 2019 and $9.5 million in 2020.
In 2019, Dareus has appeared in six games and recorded 13 tackles, 0.5 sacks and one pass defense.
