Jags Lose Another Defensive Lineman

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars now have lost both starting defensive ends for the season.

The Jags placed Lionel Barnes on injured reserve Friday with a shoulder injury. Barnes hurt his shoulder Sept. 19 against Denver. He missed one game but returned to the starting lineup two weeks ago against Indianapolis. He did not play last week at San Diego.

Paul Spicer, who started the first two games opposite Barnes, was lost for the season with a knee injury.

Without Barnes and Spicer, coach Jack Del Rio moved Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud to end against the Chargers. San Diego ran for 176 yards against Jacksonville's vaunted defense, mostly up the middle.
The Jags have tried to solidify their defensive line as they prepare to host Kansas City on Sunday.

They claimed defensive end Elton Patterson off Cincinnati's practice squad Friday and signed him to a contract. The Jaguars also re-signed defensive lineman Derrick Ransom, who they cut Sept. 5.

I agree. So far they haven't looked real impressive this season.

Don't count on it. Knowing Jack Del Rio, when he says he'll stop the run on the edges, he'll do just that!

Now, what this means is that he'll lineup 6 players on the outside of the Chiefs OLT and then the other 5 on the outside on the RLT.

Trent Green should get about 780 yards rushing on the QB sneak.


Rock-Head Rio is a blast.

Keep Chopping Leg!!!!
