Marks Season Concludes With Torn ACL

The Jaguars best player will miss all of offseason workouts as he tore his ACL during Sunday's loss to the Texans.

The Jacksonville Jaguars received some bad news on Monday as the team found out star defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks tore his ACL during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans.

Marks will have surgery once the swelling subsides and there's legitimate hope that the team's best player will be ready for the start of training camp.

The 6-foot-2, 294 pound defensive tackle had a career year in 2014, registering 44 tackles, 16 hurries and a team-best 8.5 sacks. The sack number triggered a $600,000 bonus in his contract.

Marks inked a four-year, $22 million contract extension a year ago and the Jaguars believe that he is not only the best player on the team but the cornerstone of their defense.

It's likely that the Jaguars will address their defense with the third-overall pick in April's draft and a player such as USC's Leonard Williams would seem to make a lot of sense.
