Jacksonville receiver D.J. Chark departed the Jaguars’ Thursday night contest against the Cincinnati Bengals with a serious left ankle injury, with NFL.com calling him out for the rest of the game.

According to NFL.com, Chark sustained a fractured ankle on the running play in which he was blocking. Chark’s leg got rolled up on by teammates James Robinson and Jawaan Taylor as Robinson gained 6 yards on Jacksonville’s third offensive snap of the game.

Chark was carted off the field with 13:36 left in the first quarter.

Chark, who turned 25 one week ago, had seven receptions for 154 yards and two touchdowns in the Jaguars’ first three games this season. He overcame a broken finger during the summer but healed in time to play in Week 1.

Also, Jaguars backup running back Carlos Hyde (shoulder) was scratched prior to the contest. Offensive lineman A.J. Cann was hurt during the game and also declared out for the remainder with a knee injury.
