The Jaguars got some good news on Thursday, with defensive tackle Terrance Knighton donning a helmet and hitting the practice field for the first time since being hit in the eye with a vodka bottle in April.

Per Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Knighton participated in practice on Thursday.

He wasn’t participating in team drills, but it’s a bonus for the Jags, given that they didn’t expect him to be available at all until training camp.

Knighton’s eye reportedly appeared to be “slightly swollen.”
