The Jacksonville Jaguars began practice in preparation of the Cleveland Browns today, but they were without three of their defensive lineman. Starting defensive tackle Terrance Knighton missed practice dealing with an ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago against the Houston Texans. Knighton told reporters after practice he wasn't likely going to play on Sunday. Defensive ends Aaron Kampman and John Chick both also did not practice. Kampman suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of last weeks game. Chick came back against the Colts after missing the game against the Texans, but now has an abdominal injury.
Three other players were limited today. Newly claimed wide receiver and former Brown Brian Robiskie was limited with a hamstring, as well as rookie wide receiver Cecil Shorts III. Fullback Brock Bolen returned to practice today, but only in a limited capacity. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew, fullback Greg Jones, and defensive tackle Tyson Alualu all missed practice, but it was not injury related. Greg Jones specifically was attending a memorial service for his late distant cousin, boxing great Joe Frazier.
