The Jacksonville Jaguars have been struck with the injury bug as of late, and it doesn't let up at all heading into their match up on the road with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Linebacker Daryl Smith missed practice with a concussion that he suffered against the Bengals last week and starting cornerback Derek Cox was out once again with the same groin injury that kept him out last week.
The biggest hit for the Jaguars however, will be if left tackle Eugene Monroe cannot play. Monroe was described as "extremely limited" in practice today after re-aggravating a shoulder injury that kept him out of the New Orleans Saints game. Monroe started against the Bengals, but left the game mid-way through. If Monroe is out of the lineup, it will actually change three offensive lineman positions on the line. Right tackle Guy Whimper will move from right to left tackle, Eben Britton will move from left guard to right tackle, and rookie Will Rackley will come off the bench to play left guard.
Other notable injuries were linebacker Clint Session being limited in practice with an elbow injury. Session was spotted with a brace on his elbow, the same one he dislocated last year while playing for the Indianapolis Colts. Wide receiver Jason Hill was also limited with a groin injury, and defensive end Aaron Kampman returned to practice in a limited capacity. It's thought that Kampman will make his 2011 season debut against Pittsburgh, though he may be limited to 15-20 snaps.
