Southeast Toyota’s import terminal at Jacksonville’s port is less than two miles from EverBank Field, the stadium where Illinois businessman Shahid Khan is poised to take over as owner of the Jaguars. For Khan, Southeast Toyota and the stadium are connected by more than just Talleyrand Avenue.
The Jaguars promoted practice squad tight end Colin Cloherty to the active roster Thursday evening. He'll officially sign Friday morning, so they didn't have to make a move yet, but they'll have a little bit of flexibility when they do. The Jaguars currently have 80 total players, which is the maximum teams can have on the active roster, injured reserve and practice squad combined
For the fourth week in a row, the Jaguars placed a defensive player on injured reserve. This time, though it was a notable player, it wasn’t one who had been contributing lately. The Jaguars placed defensive end Aaron Kampman on injured reserve after Kampman missed the past four games. This is the third consecutive season Kampman has finished the year on injured reserve. Kampman had missed the past four games.
The Jaguars welcome Tampa Bay to Everbank Field this Sunday after a gut punch of a loss to San Diego last Monday night. Now in the final quarter of the season and with the fan excitement of new ownership wiped away, the Jags are left to play for pride, and Tampa may be just the team to revive it. The Buccaneers are not a good team. They are one game better than the Jags at 4-8 and slightly better in Football Outsiders’s DVOA (24th to Jacksonville’s 28th). That is not to say they’re a bad team, but they aren’t doing anything particularly well.
If needed, Chris Prosinksi said he’s ready. And although the Jaguars’ rookie safety said it may or may not have been true three months ago, he said Friday he feels he’s prepared to start should the shoulder injury to Dwight Lowery keep the veteran from starting against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday.
