Linder (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Linder is set for surgery after suffering a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Colts, though the timetable for his recovery remains up in the air. Tyler Shatley is expected to see an increased workload in his absence.
Linder (knee) will undergo season-ending surgery due to a knee injury sustained during Sunday's loss to the Colts, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Linder's knee injury initially did not appear to be season-ending, but the 26-year-old is now expected to be placed on injured reserve in the near future. The starting center's injury is a significant blow for Jacksonville's running game, which just saw the return of Leonard Fournette. Expect Tyler Shatley to slot into the starting lineup during Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.
Linder (knee) will not suit up against the Steelers on Sunday and could miss multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Linder suffered an undisclosed knee injury during a Week 10 loss to the Colts, and continues to undergo testing. A timetable for the starting center's return remains uncertain, but it appears that Linder is in danger of missing a significant amount of time. As long as Linder remains sidelined, expect Tyler Shatley to draw the start at center.
Linder was taken to Jacksonville's locker room for further evaluation, and has ultimately been ruled out to return. Expect an update on the starting center's health after the conclusion of Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis.
Linder exited Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis late in the third quarter, so it may not necessarily reflect negatively on his health if he's unable to return. Expect Tyler Shatley to slot into the starting lineup as long as Linder remains sidelined.
