They say that lightning doesn't strike the same place twice, but for the fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars, it must certainly feel like it does.
After what many consider to be one of the best off-seasons had by any team in the NFL this year, the Jaguars have suffered their first set back of the 2016 season.
Out, but for how long?
The Jaguars had a successful free agency period and brought in some top talent in the draft, but their first round pick has suffered a big setback.

Jacksonville drafted cornerback Jalen Ramsey with the fifth overall pick and much like their first round pick last year Dante Fowler Jr, Ramsey has suffered a knee injury in training.
Fowler was forced to miss his entire rookie year due to the injury he sustained last season and while it doesn't appear that will be the case for Ramsey, it is still an unwelcome development.
Ramsey suffered a small tear to the meniscus in his right knee and now has two surgical options in front of him.
He now faces the options of either being out for four to six weeks, or being out for four to six months - an easy decision for some.
The Jaguars will send him for a second opinion next week and his future should become much clearer after that consultation.
If their worst fears are realised and Ramsey is forced to be sidelined for up to six months, it would register their first and second round picks as useless.
Top defensive stars missing
The Jaguars made a splash in the second round of the draft when they took one of the top first round prospects who had been allowed to fall, Myles Jack.
Jack was considered a top 10 prospect by many before his own injury struggles saw a lot of teams pass on him before Jacksonville came calling in the second round.
With Jack and Ramsey both looking at time on the sidelines, the Jaguars defense is missing a lot of talent, but with Fowler set to have his debut season, there is hope for Gus Bradley's men yet.
