Christian Kirk Likely Needs Surgery For Core-Muscle Injury

  • Headshot for Christian Kirk

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk (core) suffered a core-muscle injury in Monday night's overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on the first offensive series of the game and likely needs surgery, according to head coach Doug Pederson. Kirk will miss time, but an exact timeline on how long he'll be out is unknown right now. With only five weeks left in the regular season and four in most fantasy leagues (counting playoffs), there's a good chance Kirk won't be available for starting lineups again this year. With the 27-year-old out, Calvin Ridley and tight end Evan Engram should see more targets, while wideouts Zay Jones and Parker Washington should also have bigger roles. However, quarterback Trevor Lawrence (ankle) is also set to miss some time, which makes Jones and Washington a little less attractive as waiver-wire pickups.
