The Jacksonville Jaguars wrap up their preseason schedule with the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Jacksonville's starters will get some reps in the game, but they don't figure to play more than a quarter, according to head coach Mike Mularkey:

"The talk is up to a quarter. It’s going to be really based on the series," said Mularkey. "How many three and outs. If they’re three and out defense we will probably go another series. They’re going to play no less than 10 or 12 plays right now."
