The Jaguars’ rookie class has sustained another injury.

And while this one isn’t as serious as the first, it is expected to keep a member of the Jaguars’ draft class out of the early part of training camp.

James Sample, a safety selected in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft from the University of Louisville, underwent surgery Friday on a fractured right arm. He sustained the injury late in Thursday’s organized team activities practice at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields.

Sample, who Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said following Thursday’s practice was expected to get some first-team repetitions next week in Week Three of OTAs, is expected to miss part of training camp, which is scheduled to begin in late July.

Sample had been working in OTAs along with unrestricted free-agent signee Sergio Brown at the free-safety position.

Two surgeries in one day for former Louisville football players. DeVante Parker also had surgery this morning.
