Jacksonville Jaguars starting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was a “DNP” on the official injury report on Wednesday Womens Marcell Dareus Jersey , dealing with an abdominal injury. Seferian-Jenkins had been dealing with an injury, but according to Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone, aggravated it going up and coming down hard for a football.“He has had a nagging thing going on and he has been practicing,” Marrone told reporters on Wednesday. “The other day, he went for a ball and wound up falling down and it is sore. We are going to be smart about it.” Seferian-Jenkins status for Week 1’s matchup with the New York Giants on Sunday is still up in the air, with Marrone indicating that it’s possible he could still play.“I feel like he will play, but you never know,” Marrone said. “That is me saying it Youth Dede Westbrook Jersey , not him or the doctors.” An interesting note on Seferian-Jenkin’s injury is that he tweeted about being inPhiladelphia on Tuesday, the player’s day off. For those of you who don’t remember, both wide receiver Allen Hurns and Dede Westbrook went to Philadelphia for a second opinion on their abdominal injuries and they ended up getting surgery for a sports hernia and missing time. It makes you wonder if the concern is Seferian-Jenkins has a sports hernia as well and could need surgery, which would sideline him for a few weeks.Jaguars defensive coordinator Todd Wash ‘excited’ with Leon Jacobs at strongside linebacker The Jacksonville Jaguars are largely set with their starting lineup on the defensive side of the ball. The edge is anchored well with Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue at the ends, the interior will see a mix of Malik Jackson, Marcell Dareus, Abry Jones, first round pick Taven Bryan will see looks at several positions Youth Blake Bortles Jersey , the secondary has All-Pro cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye on the outside with Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson at safety, and Myles Jack and Telvin Smith are as dangerous a linebacker duo as there is in the NFL.But what about the void Paul Posluszny left when he retired a few months ago?We all thought it would be Blair Brown starting at strongside linebacker. Brown was experienced, he’d been with the team... it seemed like a fit.Until seventh round rookie linebacker Leon Jacobs entered the picture, that is.“I think Leon [Jacobs] has come in and done a really good job,” head coach Doug Marrone said in June during mini camp practices. “I think that he can play the SAM linebacker position also.”Brown is now backing up Smith at the weakside linebacker position and Jacobs has the inside track to take the starting SAM linebacker position — another late round phenom in the linebackers room for general manager Dave Caldwell.“He is doing well,” said defensive coordinator Todd Wash after Monday’s practice. “It is a situation where he is obviously a rookie. He steps on the grass and all the different looks our offense is giving us is great for the growth and development of him. We are seeing some real good things. Obviously, we are looking for consistency out of him, but we are excited with where he is at Womens Donte Moncrief Jersey , at this time.”The strongside linebacker isn’t a “starting” position per se but Posluszny played over 46 percent of the defensive snaps overall in 2017. Part of that was Posluszny’s role as the sometimes base linebacker on run downs. Some of that was because of Telvin’s injuries late in the season. But a typical SAM linebacker should expect somewhere between 30-40 percent of the snaps on defense.“Mentally, there are no issues,” Wash said. “He understands what we are asking him to do within our scheme and he is going out there with the best of his ability and executing it. He is a very analytical guy, so you really have to make sure it is black and white for him. There is no grey. He does a nice job of studying.”It’s been fun to watch Jacobs’ rise to the top in just a few short months. And it’ll be even more fun to watch him in the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night.
