Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu's journey back to the field from offseason knee surgery culminated in joining the Jacksonville Jaguars' starting lineup in Thursday night's 48-17 preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens, writes the Florida Times-Union.
Alualu has been brought along slowly, but he was apparently good to go Thursday. He replaced D'Anthony Smith, who filled in on the first team during Alualu's recovery. Alualu played two series before being replaced by Smith.
C.J. Mosley's good camp has kept him starting at the other tackle position over Terrance Knighton, who came in for the second series. Knighton got a third-down sack in the red zone that forced Baltimore to settle for a field goal.
