Terrance Knighton calls a Jaguars players only meeting

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is calling a players-only meeting on Monday to see if the team can get on the same page before Thursday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

After losing to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, 31-14, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is calling a players-only meeting on Monday to try and get all the players on the team on the same page entering the second-half of the season:

"We've got a few guys in each room. Me and (Jeremy) Mincey will take ownership from the front, (Paul Posluszny) Puz will take one for the linebackers, and they've got multiple guys in the secondary. We'll come in tomorrow and get together for a player only and figure this out."

The lone win for the Jaguars was a 22-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. With the Jaguars playing the Colts on Thursday, Knighton knows that the team has to work hard in the few days before Thursday's game, despite probably being out of the playoff race at this point:

"We're probably way out of the picture for the playoffs, but we've got to attack this thing like we're 8-0, we need to come out Thursday because it's a quick turnaround and stop a team that's playing real good and beat a team we already beat."

In that Week 3 victory against the Colts, quarterback Blaine Gabbert completed 10 of 21 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown, an 80-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cecil Shorts III with 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 177 yards and a touchdown and kicker Josh Scobee added three field goals.

The Jaguars play the Colts on Thursday Night Football at EverBank Field with kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET and the game to be aired on NFL Network.
