Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton had a Monday doctor's apppointment to follow up on the surgery performed on his eye following a Sunday incident at or near a Jacksonville nightclub.

Knighton's mother told the Jacksonville Times-Union that the surgery was to the eye, not the face or bones around the eye. A source told the newspaper that the injury appeared to be serious.

Knighton was reportedly hit in the face with a bottle of vodka. However, no police report or 911 call or report of any incident at the Pure Nightclub has yet surfaced.
