Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is in good spirits, awaiting a doctor's visit this afternoon, his mother said.
Rochelle Knighton said the injury was in her son's actual eye. She got a call yesterday from him. Rochelle and her adopted son moved to Jacksonville after Terrance got drafted.
Knighton sustained the injury in or around the Jacksonville nightclub Pure early Sunday morning. The Jaguars released a statement Sunday evening saying they were gathering information about the incident.
