JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville's injury-depleted defense suffered another setback Monday night when safety Donovin Darius broke his right leg against the New York Giants and was lost for the season.
It's the second consecutive season that Darius' season ended early. He missed most of last year after tearing a ligament in his left knee.
Darius fell to the ground and winced in pain during a 13-yard screen pass from Eli Manning to Tiki Barber in the first quarter. Darius appeared to have his leg rolled over on the play.
He yelled toward the Giants offensive players as he was helped off the field. He was carted to the locker room for X-rays, and coach Jack Del Rio confirmed the injury after Jacksonville's 26-10 victory.
The Jaguars already were playing without two defensive starters. Linebacker Mike Peterson and defensive end Reggie Hayward are two of eight defensive players on injured reserve.
Peterson, the team's top tackler the last three seasons, tore a pectoral muscle last month. Hayward, who led the team with 8 1/2 sacks and 59 quarterback pressures last season, ruptured an Achilles' tendon in the season opener.
