Posluszny (abdomen), who is active for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Steelers, is expected to require sports hernia surgery after the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The linebacker has been playing through the painful core-muscle injury for the last few weeks and was unable to finish out the Jaguars' 10-3 win over the Bills in the wild-card round. Though he avoided an injury designation heading into the weekend after practicing fully Friday, Posluszny could cede more snaps than usual to Blair Brown on Sunday while he plays at less-than-full strength.
Posluszny (abdomen) was removed from the injury report ahed of Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Posluszny missed some practice time this week due to an abdomen injury he sustained in the Jaguars' wild-card victory over the Bills. However, he was a full participant in Friday's session and appears ready to roll for Sunday's playoff game.
Posluszny (abdomen) returned to practice in a limited capacity Thursday.
Posluszny sustained some sort of abdominal injury last weekend against the Bills and wasn't available to practice Wednesday. His return to the field Thursday offers hope that he'll be cleared to play in time for Sunday's tilt with the Steelers.
Posluszny isn't expected to practice Wednesday due to an abdominal injury, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Posluszny was forced to exit the Jaguars' wild-card win over the Bills last weekend due to a hip issue, but it appears Jacksonville has since reclassified the veteran's injury. The linebacker may need to put in at least a limited practice Thursday or Friday in order to gain clearance for Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Steelers.
Posluszny left Sunday's win over the Bills in the second quarter with a hip injury and did not return, NFL.com reports.
Poz did not register as much as a tackle before departing, though he probably felt a little better when the Jags eventually knocked his former team out of the playoffs. Jacksonville faces a far superior offense to the lackluster unit the Bills offered up when the team travels to Pittsburgh next week, so it'd a nice break if its starting middle linebacker can return for the divisional round.
