Jacksonville Jaguars TE Brett Brackett undergoes groin surgery

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Brett Brackett will be sidelined until training camp following groin surgery.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Brackett had surgery Tuesday after getting a second opinion on his injured groin. Bradley added that Brackett should be ready for camp, which starts July 26.

Brackett is the Jaguars' second player to undergo groin surgery in the last two weeks, joining defensive end Jason Babin.

A second-year pro from Penn State, Brackett is competing for a roster spot in Jacksonville. The Jaguars claimed Brackett off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles early last season, but he injured his knee during his first practice and spent the rest of the year on injured reserve.

Brackett, originally signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2011, has not played in an NFL regular-season game.
