Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Torn ACL to land Cotrone on IR

Jaguars fullback Anthony Cotrone will go on the injured reserve sometime Monday after tearing his left ACL on Friday in the club’s scrimmage.

A rookie free agent from Maine, Cotrone had caught the attention of the coaching staff with his power, pass-catching and blocking ability. Just last week, Cotrone (6-2, 260 pounds) was reportedly the only player on the roster to have a 100-percent catch average. Cotrone injured his leg late in Friday’s scrimmage.

The club anticipates filling Cotrone’s roster spot with tight end Isaac Smolko, who spent eight weeks on the practice squad last season before being placed on the active roster last November. The club cut ties with Smolko on June 16. But against the Washington Redskins last year in the preseason, Smolko played five positions – fullback, tight end, linebacker, defensive end and on special teams – drawing praise from the coaching staff about his versatility.
