Following a 3–14 record and a season embroiled in scandal, the Jaguars are looking to start fresh in 2022.
Travis Etienne, one of Jacksonville’s first-round picks in the 2021 NFL draft, missed the terrible season due to an ankle injury. When asked if a part of him was glad he missed this past season on Tuesday, he grinned and gave an extremely honest answer.
“Nah, definitely,” he said. “That’s just the human element of it. Just seeing it results, you’re definitely like, ‘Phew, if there was any year to miss, I missed a great one.’”
The 23-year-old running back suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury in his left foot during the Jaguars’ preseason Week 2 game.
Etienne had to sit and watch the terrible season that was capped off with the December firing of former head coach Urban Meyer. During his short tenure, he was accused of kicking Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo, allegedly fostering a ‘toxic’ work environment, and was reportedly unfamiliar with some of the NFL’s biggest names, including Rams’ Aaron Donald.
