Dareus (pectoral) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Dareus was expected to be back at practice this week, but he's back on the sidelines Tuesday instead. It's unclear whether Dareus suffered a setback or not, but his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week.
Dareus exited Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons with a pectoral injury, which is something he battled before the second exhibition game as well. It appears to be minor, though, so Dareus will get a good week of practice before watching Thursday's finale from the sidelines.
Dareus injured his pectoral muscle and did not return to Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Dareus missed last week's preseason game with a pectoral injury, but it isn't clear if he aggravated said injury Saturday. Michael Bennett and Abry Jones received extended run for the remainder of the game.
Dareus is facing a lawsuit over allegations of sexual assault , Chris Parenteau of Channel 4 Jacksonville reports.
It's unlikely the NFL or the Jaguars will comment on the matter until after the legal process plays out. Even if Dareus is cleared in court, it's still possible that the league could issue a punishment for the defensive tackle for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. Dareus has previously been suspended twice by the NFL, both for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Dareus missed consecutive practices earlier in the week while recovering from an illness, but returned to a full workload Friday. Assuming he avoids any type of setback, he looks good to go for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.
