The Jacksonville Jaguars got one of their key men back today when running back Chris Ivory was released from a local hospital and rejoined the team.

The former New York Jets star spent two days in hospital for what the team is calling a "general medical issue."

Speaking in a statement released by the team today, Ivory stated that he wasn't going to say what was wrong with him, rather that he was in pain and now isn't after his stay under observation.

“I’d rather not speak about the specifics, but it’s something that needed the attention,” Ivory said. “I went in with pain and got the problem fixed.”

The 28-year-old was admitted to hospital on Sunday morning and missed the Jags loss to the Green Bay Packers at EverBank Field in the opening game of the season.

While Ivory did make a return to the team, it remains to be seen when he will be able to get back out on the field again in full uniform.

Neither the player himself or Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley would give a potential return timetable and it seems very unlikely that Ivory will see the field on Sunday as Jacksonville face the San Diego Chargers.

“It would be really challenging for him,” Bradley said. “We’ll see, but I would think that the arrow would be down.”

It remains to be seen how long Ivory will be out for and if we ever find out what the real injury/illness was.
