SALT LAKE CITY – Former Ute and Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Devin Lloyd will miss at least two weeks with a thumb injury after getting surgery on Tuesday.
NFL Network insider Cameron Wolfe reported that Lloyd will not travel with the team for the next game as he recovers.
Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said WR Zay Jones is a “long shot” to play the Falcons Sunday in London with knee injury.
LB Devin Lloyd won’t travel to London and will miss the next two weeks. He had surgery to put 2 screws into his thumb yesterday, hope is he returns vs. Colts.

Lloyd injured his thumb in a 37-17 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Coming off of a great week two performance against the Chiefs, Lloyd played 75% of the defensive snaps against Houston.

The Jaguars will travel to London for a week five matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.
The earliest that Lloyd could return would be on October 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.
