Until the final game of the season, Paul Posluszny’s first season in Jacksonville was one of his healthiest as a professional player.
The linebacker had to leave the season finale with the Colts early after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder and the injury is going to keep him from full participation in the team’s offseason activities. Posluszny had surgery to repair the injury this month, Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reports, and the rehab will keep him limited until training camp.
With Mel Tucker returning as the team’s defensive coordinator, Posluszny won’t miss too much during his time on the sidelines. The team’s defensive scheme figures to be the same as it was this year, when Posluszny was a key cog in the machine. He led the team with 119 tackles and picked up two sacks and two interceptions.
