    Kick in the ax: Jags P Hanson lost for season Oct. 9, 2003

    Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowl punter Chris Hanson got the ax Thursday, but it's not what you think.

    A team source told SportsLine.com that Hanson is likely out for the season after a freak accident Thursday involving an ax that was placed in the locker room as part of a motivational tool by coach Jack Del Rio.

    Hanson was rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning and underwent surgery in the afternoon after he slashed himself with the ax in the team's locker room, according to the source.

    Hanson's leg will be in a boot for four to six weeks, and the team hasn't decided whether to place him on injured reserve, team spokesman Dan Edwards said.

    The ax and a tree stump were placed in the locker room by Del Rio to signify his slogan of "keep chopping wood," telling the players that hard work was the only way to solve their problems.

    "The message was understood," Del Rio said. The log, he said, "was symbolic more than anything else. The thing was on its way out, but just not soon enough."

    Players would pick up the ax and take a swing at the block of wood, leaving chips spread in the middle of the locker room. The source said Hanson took a swing and the ax deflected off the wood, striking his right shin.

    The team removed the ax from the locker room afterward.

    Hanson, a restricted free agent after the season, will be replaced by Mark Royals, who was released by Miami earlier this season.

    The Dolphins play the Jaguars Sunday in Jacksonville.

    This isn't the first time Hanson has been injured in an unconventional manner.

    In June 2002, Hanson, his wife and former Jaguars kicker Jaret Holmes were severely burned while they were making fondue at Hanson's house, and the fondue pot overturned.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report
