Christian Kirk Likely Done for Season with Core Injury



While it remains to be seen for certain that Kirk will miss the rest of 2023, things are certainly trending that way with the belief being that Kirk will need surgery to address the injury. Kirk was hurt on the first drive of the game after reeling in a 26-yard reception and exited the game without returning. In Kirk’s place, WR Parker Washington stepped up to the plate and was able to deliver a respectable 6/61/1 line against the Bengals secondary, out-producing teammates Calvin Ridley and Zay Jones. With Kirk out for the foreseeable future and potentially the rest of the way, Evan Engram and Ridley should be part of a tighter target distribution at the top while Parker Washington will slot in as an intriguing flex play in the coming weeks. However, the upside for all of these receivers has the potential to take a considerable hit given the fact that we could be subjected to multiple games of C.J. Beathard under center in Jacksonville moving forward.
