The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without safety Dwight Lowery for two or three weeks, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. Lowery suffered the injury during his team's Week 5 loss to the Chicago Bears, and the specifics of his issue have not been released since the Jaguars have a bye in Week 6 and are not required to release injury information.

Lowery has started all five of Jacksonville's games in 2012 and has 18 tackles. The fifth-year pro has made 34 starts over the course of his NFL career.

In his absence, reserve safety Chris Prosinski is expected to get a start. Prosinski has appeared in every game for Jacksonville this season and has recorded six tackles. He played in 13 games for Jacksonville in 2011 and finished the year with 19 tackles.

The Jaguars return to the field in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders, and they'll be looking to pick up their second win of the season.
