Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey playing too many snaps

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said he thinks defensive end Jeremy Mincey may be playing too many snaps.

After racking up eight sacks last season, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey is yet to record a sack in five games this season and Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said he thinks the reason may be Mincey is playing too many snaps.

During his Monday press conference, Mularkey said Mincey is playing too many snaps due to injures at defensive end and the number of reps has caused him to wear down at the end of games.

"I just think by the time you got the number of reps that he got he's just not as effective at the end of the game," Mularkey said.

In addition to being worn down due to extra playing time, Mularkey also said he thought Mincey has been trying to do more than the coaching staff asked him, causing him to overplay some plays and miss potential sacks or quarterback containment. Instead of staying in his lane, Mincey has tried to do too much and it has allowed the opposing quarterback to escape at times.

Mularkey said the return of defensive end George Selvie will help reduce Mincey's snaps, something the coach thinks will be good for him.
