Report: Jaguars OT Anton Harrison underwent shoulder surgery

Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Anton Harrison underwent shoulder surgery shortly after his rookie season ended, according to a report from Demetrius Harvey of the Florida Times-Union.

Harrison, who turns 22 in February, missed time in training camp due to the shoulder injury, but never missed a game during the 2023 season. He played 1,113 offensive snaps — second most on the team behind only center Luke Fortner — and played another 71 snaps on special teams.

On Tuesday, a tweet from a real estate agent who helped Harrison buy a home showed the offensive tackle wearing a sling around his right arm.

During his rookie year, Harrison was credited by Pro Football Focus with allowing five sacks and 27 total pressures.

“Anton, heck of a season,” Jaguars coach Doug Pederson said. “He played hurt and banged up and we’ve talked about it in here, he had an edge rusher every week, just about. He held up really well. I know our guys talking about him know that he’s going to be a great player. That’s one we’re excited about.”

Harrison was the No. 27 overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft where he was the fifth offensive lineman picked.
