Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts with a fractured right hand, the team announced Friday.

Posluszny sustained the injury in the team’s 42–39 loss to the Tennessee Titans last Sunday while tackling quarterback Marcus Mariota.

He underwent surgery to repair his hand on Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday or Friday. He has not been placed on the injured reserve as the team holds onto the possibility of him playing in the next few weeks.

Coach Gus Bradley said on Wednesday that Posluszny could possibly play with a cast on his hand and heavy wrapping.

Posluszny has two interceptions and nine tackles for loss over 11 games. He missed one game this season against the Buccaneers due to a high ankle sprain.

The Jaguars are 4–8, while the Colts sit at 6–6.
