Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark will miss the remainder of the season due to a fractured ankle, coach Urban Meyer said Monday.

Chark sustained the injury while blocking on a running play during the Jaguars’ 24-21 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 30. Chark’s leg was rolled up on by teammates James Robinson and Jawaan Taylor as Robinson gained six yards on Jacksonville’s third offensive snap of the game.

Chark, 25, will finish this season with seven catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns.

He has caught 147 passes for 2,042 yards and 15 touchdowns in 43 games (30 starts) over four NFL seasons. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2019 when he recorded career bests of 73 receptions, 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns.

The second-round pick in 2018 is in the final season of his rookie contract. He is slated to become a free agent following the season.
