The Jags' first practice day before meeting the Jets on Sunday saw the team's leading receiver and top two rushers sit out.
Sitting at 2-10 on the season, the Jacksonville Jaguars need all the help they can get when it comes to picking up wins. Their upcoming home tilt with the 5-7 New York Jets could've been a game where the Jags picked up a victory. But with three of their best offensive weapons sitting out of Wednesday's practice, it's looking grim for the Jags chances.
The team's leading receiver, Cecil Shorts III, sat out with a concussion, as did running back Rashad Jennings. Maurice Jones-Drew continues to deal with a foot injury and didn't practice on Wednesday.
The Jaguars were missing a lot of players due to injury at Wednesday's practice, including center Brad Meester, who sat out practice with a foot injury. Offensive lineman Mike Brewster sat out with a hand injury. Things weren't much more encouraging on the defensive side of the ball where cornerback Aaron Ross (calf) and defensive end George Selvie (concussion) sat out of practice today. Defensive end Austen Lane and cornerback Derek Cox were both limited in practice with foot and hamstring injuries, respectively.
