Jacksonville will have to make some decisions on two defensive players eligible to return to action after Week 6.

Before the start of training camp, the Jaguars placed two expected defensive contributors -- LB Clint Sessions and DE John Chick -- on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

The list was created as a middle ground between not wasting an active roster spot on an injured player and not ending his season by putting him on the injured reserve (IR). After Week 6, Jacksonville will have three weeks to decide whether to activate Sessions and/or Chick or write off their 2012 seasons completely.

Sessions, a sixth-year LB from Pittsburgh, was suffering from concussion-like symptoms which may force him into retirement. He started six games for the Jaguars in 2011, with 19 tackles, 1 sack and 1 forced fumble.

Chick, a second-year DE from Utah State, was still recovering from a patella injury he suffered in his rookie year that placed him on the IR in 2011. The 6'4 255 DE, who started his professional career in the CFL, had 8 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 1 forced fumble in 11 games last year.
