Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it. "The doctor is going in there to take a look at everything and hopefully we'll go with the quick route," Miller said. "If they can trim it, I'll be back on my feet the next day. If not, you have to wait for it to stitch together and then you take precautionary steps and that's maybe a couple of months." Miller sat out the final two games of the season before opting for surgery. He signed a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension five days after the injury. His season ends with 30 tackles and one sack.
The Jaguars have ruled Roy Miller (knee), Chris Smith, Tyler Shatley, Matt Daniels, Jeremy Harris, Tommy Streeter (abdomen) and Stephen Morris as inactive for Sunday's season finale against Houston.
The Jaguars enter the final week of the season relatively healthy. Outside of defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) who was ruled doubtful for Sunday's game against Houston, Jacksonville listed seven players as probable. Those include quarterback Blake Bortles (foot), center Luke Bowanko (wrist), defensive end Andre Branch (groin), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), running back Toby Gerhart (ribs), wide receiver Cecil Shorts III (shoulder) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdomen).
Jaguars defensive linemen Roy Miller (knee) and Andre Branch (groin) weren't able to practice Tuesday, as the team prepares for Sunday's season finale against the Texans, according to ESPN. Branch was unable to play Week 16 and has appeared in only one of Jacksonville's last eight games. Miller may skip the finale and opt for surgery on his injured knee. Jacksonville has dropped from a 9 1/2-point to a 10-point underdog at Houston.
Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller is still optimistic about playing in Sunday's season finale against Houston, the Florida Times-Union reports. Miller sat out Week 16 against Baltimore with a knee injury. A previous report had him missing the rest of the season and in order to have surgery to repair a torn meniscus. "I'm trying to get it right and hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday, I'll feel a lot better," Miller said.
