The report adds that Ball hopes his current injury is not something that will sideline him for an extended period of time. My thoughts are that it isnt season-ending, Ball said. In the next week, week-and-a-half, Im be trying to get my body back to the best it can possibly be and then go from there. Ball visited a specialist in San Francisco this week for a second opinion, and at this point it's unclear if he'll require surgery or some other type of procedure.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Ball will likely be one of Jacksonville's starting cornerbacks, playing opposite Dwyane Gratz. He's in the final year of his contract, so he'll look to prove he's still a starting-caliber corner as he nears 30 years old.

2013

Will likely serve as Jacksonville's nickel back this season.

2012

Ball heads due south to Houston after five years in Dallas. Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph are locked in as starters and there are some returning backups like Jason Allen and Brice McCain, so Ball will have to fight for a job.

2011

With the experiment to turn Ball into a starting safety having been deemed a failure, he'll go back to providing secondary depth for the Cowboys.

2010

Depth cornerback is in the mix for the starting free safety job.
