Jaguars Lose DE Aaron Kampman to Torn ACL

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman will miss the remainder of the 2010 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee.

Kampman injured his knee on Wednesday, and an MRI last night revealed the tear.

Signed to a four-year, $26 million contract in March, Kampman was coming off a torn ACL in his left knee that ended his 2009 season and eight-year career with the Green Bay Packers, who selected the former Iowa Hawkeye in the fifth round of the 2002 NFL Draft.

During his career, Kampman made 483 tackles and posted 58 quarterback sacks, including 37 between 2006-08, earning Pro Bowls after the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Kampman leads the Jaguars with 4 quarterback sacks and 17 quarterback hits this season.

The Jaguars added that defensive end Jeremy Mincey will be available to play this week, despite a broken hand that kept him out of Week 8's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
