Ex-Pitt Star Session out with Concussion

Article excerpt

Seven months after his latest concussion, Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Clint Session remains on the sideline. The former Pitt star was not on the field for the team's two practices Friday because he still is dealing with post-concussion symptoms, coach Mike Mularkey said.

"It's definitely a concern," Mularkey added.

Session had at least two concussions last year, one in the preseason and another Nov. 20 against Cleveland. He was placed on injured reserve two days later and missed most of the team's offseason workouts.

The team had hoped he would be ready for camp, but Mularkey said setbacks have slowed his progress.

The former Indianapolis starter signed a five-year, $29 million contract with Jacksonville last year. It included $11.5 million guaranteed. The Jaguars paid Session a $2.25 million roster bonus in March, but Mularkey was not sure when or if he will play again. Versatile backup Russell Allen will take Session's spot in the lineup.
