Sound Familiar? Kampman Tears ACL, Out For Year

Kampman's season ends prematurely for the second year in a row.

For the second year in a row, former Green Bay Packers and current Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Last November, Kampman tore his ACL in the Packers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Yesterday, Kampman tore his ACL in practice.

It’s unclear whether the tear is in the same knee.

Regardless, it’s unfortunate for Kampman and the Jaguars. The defensive end was enjoying a resurgence in Jacksonville after being miscast as an outside linebacker last season in Green Bay.

Kampman had 25 tackles and four sacks through eight games in Jacksonville and was considered both the leader of their defense and their best defensive lineman.

It’s an unfortunate end to Kampman’s season… again. While we don’t really care about the Jaguars, Kampman was always a class guy and it’s hard not pull for him.

Here’s to hoping he can work his way back and play in 2011.

    He probably blew his knee out while getting pancaked by a fullback.

    I think he needed to make All-Pro to net us a third round compensatory pick.
