Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Dan Arnold is headed to injured reserve with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
NFL Network reported it’s a grade 2 sprain that is likely to sideline Arnold for four to six weeks, which could end his season. He’ll have to miss at least three games with the IR stint.
The Jags (2-9) have six games remaining.
Arnold, 26, was injured in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to Atlanta while fighting for extra yards on what was a 9-yard catch. He left the game and did not return. He has 28 catches for 324 yards in eight games in Jacksonville.
Arnold was traded to the Jags from Carolina on Sept. 27. He has 35 catches for 408 yards overall on the season.
He has 86 career catches for 1,123 yards and seven touchdowns for four teams.
James O’Shaughnessy is expected to take over as the starter. He has 10 catches for 101 yards in three games this season. He had just come off IR.
