Mike Mularkey Surprised By All The Jaguars Foot Injuries

The Jacksonville Jaguars not only lost their season opener to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, they also might lose key members of their offensive line as well, with Eben Britton, Cameron Bradfield and Uche Nwaneri all sporting walking boots after the loss.

As Jacksonville prepares for its next opponent, the Houston Texans and their vaunted pass rush, on Monday head coach Mike Mularkey remarked that so many ankle/foot injuries at the same time is something he's never experienced before:

"It's the most foot injuries I've ever been around. Foot, ankle, you think about the number of lineman we have lost with it, it's just unheard of. I don't know if it's bad luck. I am putting a little research out there with some of the turf teams if they're experiencing the same kind of issues we are with our ankles and feet. We have had an unbelievable number of injuries to that part of the body. More than I've ever been around."
