Football can be a cruel sport, and unfortunately, Dante Fowler is learning that the hard way.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jaguars’ rookie defensive end suffered a torn ACL during the team's rookie minicamp, which was also Fowler's first NFL practice. The injury occurred during the first hour of practice.
