A day after the Jaguars lost their home opener to Arizona, the team learned that veteran WR Troy Williamson will be out for the season with a torn labrum, and released wide receiver Nate Hughes, who dropped a key pass in the game.
A source close to Williamson revealed the severity of the receiver’s injury.
Williamson suffered the injury after catching an 11-yard pass in the second quarter. Williamson fumbled on the play and in the scramble for the loose ball, an Arizona player fell on the receiver’s shoulder.
Hughes dropped what would have been a touchdown pass (the ball bounced off his shoulder pads) in the fourth quarter with the Jaguars trailing 31-17.
Though the Jaguars haven't made an announcement about Hughes, his agent, Glen Lansky confirmed his release.
