Jason Babin has groin surgery, expected back for Jaguars’ camp


Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin had groin surgery but is expected to recover in time to participate in training camp.

Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley confirmed today that Babin had the procedure.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Babin ended up in Jacksonville last season after the Eagles placed him on waivers. He stepped into the Jaguars’ first-string defense immediately, starting the final five games of the season for Jacksonville after starting the first 11 for Philadelphia.

The 33-year-old Babin has 55 career sacks, including 5.5 for the Eagles and 1.5 for the Jaguars last year.
