Jason Babin close to 100 percent
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/28/2013) Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin is almost healthy, which is good timing with training camp at the end of July.
Babin told the Jaguars' official team website that he is on schedule for the start of camp after undergoing groin surgery in early June.
"I'm about nine days out from being 100 percent," Babin said.
Babin was in and out of on-field workouts during the offseason with the lingering injury, and after a second opinion with a specialist in Philadelphia, Babin underwent the first surgical procedure of his career June 4.
In nine NFL seasons, Babin has played in 114 career games, including five with the Jaguars in 2012. The Jaguars claimed Babin off waivers from the Eagles in November.
