Jaguars Offensive Line Will Need To Step Up Despite Injuries

The Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive line has been struggling with injuries early in the regular season. With Will Rackley gone for the season and Cameron Bradfield and Eben Britton out for last Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, the Jaguars were already dangerously thin.

The problems on the offensive line led to one of the worst offensive games in franchise history. Entering next week's game against the Indianapolis Colts, guard Uche Nwaneri says that the team needs to put the injury problems behind them and focus on blocking:

Injuries are going to happen, guys are going to go down and it is what it is, guys have to come in and be ready to play regardless of who's out there the expectation levels don't change and standards don't change Coach(Mike) Mularkey let that known from day one.

The Jaguars play the Colts at 1 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game will be televised on CBS.
