The feeling on Chark had been optimistic heading into tonight’s game, so this comes as a bit of a surprise.
Chark will have extra time to rest and heal up for Jacksonville’s Week 4 game.
Chark, 24, was drafted in the second round out of LSU in 2018 by the Jaguars. According to OverTheCap.com, he received a $4,447,230 contract that includes a $1,314,348 signing bonus.
In 2020, Chark has appeared in two games for the Jaguars and recorded seven catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.
