Mike Brewster steps into starting role with Jaguars

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Undrafted rookie guard Mike Brewster has supplanted four-year guard Eben Britton as starter on the Jacksonville Jaguars. What does head coach Mike Mularkey like so much about Brewster?

Jacksonville Jaguars guard Michael Brewster impressed head coach Mike Mularkey enough that the coach is not ready to make a switch at guard, even though Eben Britton said that he was ready to produce after the bye. Brewster, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in April, impressed Mularkey with his ability to finish plays. In his weekly press conference, Mularkey spoke highly of the rookie:

Mike's taking advantage of every opportunity we've presented to him. He's doing what we've asked. You talk about guys that finish plays, he's one of them.

Britton, who was drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Arizona, had been dealing with injuries so far this season, but Mularkey thought a change was needed after the Jaguars' loss to the Oakland Raiders. At least for now, Brewster will stay at guard.

We're not going to make a change there right now.

The Jaguars will play their next game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at EverBank Field. The game is scheduled to kickoff at 1 p.m. and will be broadcast on Fox. The radio broadcast of the game will be on WOKV 690 AM and 106.5 FM.
