Jaguars Vs. Colts Inactives: Rashad Jennings Out Sunday

Jacksonville will be without RB Rashad Jennings, while Indianapolis will be missing DE Dwight Freeney for Sunday's AFC South contest at Lucas Oil Stadium, according to ESPN. A full list of inactives across all NFL games Sunday can be found here.

Inactives for the Jaguars and Colts Sunday, from ESPN:

Jaguars: DE Austin Lane, LB Daryl Smith, DE George Selvie, RB Rashad Jennings, DE Jeris Pendleton, OL Cameron Bradfield, T Eben Britton

Colts: QB Chandler Harnish, CB Josh Gordy, RB Delone Carter, ILB Pat Angerer, T Bradley Sowell, G Joe Reitz, OLB Dwight Freeney

Jacksonville still is hurting for offensive line depth, and the absence of Bradfield and Britton, both out with lingering foot injuries, doesn't help.

Indianapolis will get WR Austin Collie back after his concussion, though Collie won't start. Starting RT Winston Justice also will return from a Week 1 concussion.

Defensive end Austen Lane and offensive lineman Cameron Bradfield are both listed as questionable, while cornerback Derek Cox is probable.

The Colts won't have the services of offensive lineman Joe Reitz or linebacker Pat Angerer, and linebacker Dwight Freeney is questionable.

Jaguars Fantasy Football Week 3: Maurice Jones-Drew A Good Option At Running Back

Jones-Drew didn't enter the regular season as Jacksonville's starting running back, but after Rashad Jennings suffered a knee injury in Week 1, the door opened for a return to feature back status.

Jones-Drew has 31 carries for 137 yards through two games. He has also caught six passes for 25 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars are up against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

Jaguars CB Rashean Mathis Getting More Snaps

Rashean Mathis was a big question mark heading into the season after he missed the final seven games last year with a knee injury. The Jaguars have gradually increased his workload to ensure a healthy comeback. In the first game he saw 19 snaps, but that was bumped up to 40 against Houston.

For Mathis, everything feels good so far this season, according to The Florida Times-Union.

"The knee has responded well to everything," Mathis said. "Not setbacks, which is great. I played more plays than I did the previous game so it’s a positive."

Through two games, Mathis has three tackles and one pass break up.

On Sunday he will be facing the Indianapolis Colts. It was against them last season that Mathis suffered the injury that ended his season.

Tackling Still An Issue For Jaguars Defense

When you start 0-2 in the National Football League, there is plenty to critique.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is quite aware of that fact, and during his Monday press conference, Mularkey addressed Jacksonville's poor tackling on defense.

First one I think of was the touchdown, not the touchdown, the run that brought them down to the one-yard line. We had some bad angles. Really, that play should be contained up at the line of scrimmage, so it doesn't get outside. It was just a lead draw. We run the same play. Our defense has seen that. That's not one of their top plays.

Obviously, they saw something there, that they ran it. Angles could be better. When we were there, we just didn't wrap up. In that one play, it was about getting off blocks, shedding the blocker, getting off, getting leverage on the runner, and then when we're there, making the play. We had guys there to make the play. We've got to tackle them. I know I'm being repetitive. We've got to take better angles, and we've got to wrap our arms. Wrap and roll when we're in that situation."

Jacksonville's defense has given up 53 points through the first two weeks of the season, and will face off against the No. 1 overall pick from the 2012 NFL Draft on Sunday, when they take on Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Jaguars HC Mike Mularkey: 'We Are Staying The Course'

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey isn't ready to press the panic button. After losing 27-7 against the Houston Texans, a game in which the Jags failed to covert on any third-down play, Mularkey said at his press conference he and his Jaguars are going to "stay the course."

Mularkey was asked if his message – and by extension, game plan – would change this week, in response to players saying they need to play more uptempo, and said:

We are staying the course. We have a process that we are in the middle of. We are not changing. We have seen it. It is on tape. It's proof that we are capable of doing some things with the guys that we have right now. They know that, they know how we feel about it. I'm glad I'm hearing what you're saying. It sounds like they are going to hold themselves accountable. We all are, that we all do better. We all have to play better, we all have to execute better. Coaches and players.

The Jaguars had just 117 yards of total offense against the Texans, and will surely need to improve on that in Week 3, as they take on the Indianapolis Colts.
