Jaguars GM David Caldwell told Pro Football Talk on Thursday that he’s confident second-round LB Myles Jack won’t need microfracture surgery.

In fact, Caldwell said he’d be a “full go” if they were already practicing.

“Right now, he’s full go,” Caldwell said. “If he was in spring ball, he’d be able to participating at UCLA’s practice, according to his operating surgeon. We look forward to getting him out here and practicing and if something does arise we do have a good plan for it. I don’t think the plan involves microfracture [surgery]. I feel confident with the kind of people we’ve consulted and our medical staff. I don’t think he’s a candidate for that from what I’ve been told, but there may be need to be a procedure somewhere down the line. As of right now he looks good, he feels good, and he’s ready to go.


Rams fourth-round TE Tyler Higbee is expected to plead not guilty to second-degree assault, second-degree evading police, and public intoxication charges on Thursday, according to USA Today.

Higbee allegedly assaulted a man outside of a Bowling Green music club. The victim was reportedly unconscious for at least 20 minutes and later transported to a Medical Center in Nashville in serious condition. While there, the victim was diagnosed with a concussion and brain hemorrhage, but was later upgraded to good condition and released soon after.
