Jaguars lose rookie DE Woodard to torn Achilles tendon

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost another draft pick to injury.

Defensive end Jonathan Woodard, a seventh-round selection from Central Arkansas, tore his right Achilles tendon during workouts two weeks ago and had surgery. He will be placed on the physically unable to perform list and likely miss his rookie season.

First-rounder Jalen Ramsey, the fifth overall pick in the draft, was in Pensacola on Monday to get a second opinion on his injured right knee. The Florida State standout sustained a ''small tear to the meniscus'' in his knee last week.

The Jaguars also opened organized team activities Monday without second-rounder Myles Jacks, who can't practice because of NFL graduation rules. UCLA operates on the quarter system and finishes spring session June 10.

Jacksonville also was without backup offensive lineman Luke Bowanko (torn labrum in his right hip). He'll have arthroscopy surgery.
