Geno Hayes cleared for full activity

Linebacker Geno Hayes started the first 14 games of last season for the Jaguars, but ended the year on injured reserve because of a knee injury that required surgery after the season came to an end.

Hayes has recovered well from the surgery, though, and he’s gotten the green light to go ahead with his pursuit of a starting job in 2014. Hayes has been given full medical clearance by the team’s doctors and says that he’s experiencing no lingering issues with the knee.

“We did it the smart way instead of trying to push it and then going back to square one,” Hayes said, via the Florida Times-Union. “Right now, it’s doing well and I’ve been able to run and cut without any problems.”

Hayes did well in pass coverage last season, but wasn’t much of an asset against the run. There’s not much competition on the roster right now, although the draft could bring some other options to the Jacksonville linebacking corps.

    Geno was solid last year I can see him Pozlusny and Watson forming a Beast of trio LB Corp fast and punishing. Jags D is looking pretty dang mean this year. Can’t wait to see them in action as an 11 man unit. Geno does need to work on his run stuffing but is a missle when he hits someone on first contact.

    he has always had splash play ability and always been weak in the run game, I liked him as a buc but that is what he is as a football player
