The Jacksonville Jaguars official site has a new updated depth chart. There's no real surprises on it, but there are some interesting notes. Remember last week when everyone was making a big deal about Blaine Gabbert being the third quarterback? Well, on the depth chart he's listed as the second quarterback, with Luke McCown as the third. Does that mean if David Garrard gets hurt on Sunday, Gabbert will come in the game in relief? Probably not. Early in the season, Jack Del Rio is more likely to go with the veteran McCown in spot duty when necessary.
Also of interest is that undrafted rookie offensive lineman Cameron Bradfield
is listed as the back up left tackle. I don't recall much of Bradfield during the preseason, which is usually a good thing for a rookie lineman. Jason Spitz
is also listed as the primary back up for both left and right guard with John Estes
as the back up center.
At the runningback position with Rashad Jennings hitting injured reserve, Montell Owens is listed as the third runningback with Brock Bolen as the second fullback.
Newly acquired safety Dwight Lowery is listed as the primary back up at strong safety, with rookie Chris Prosinski as the primary free safety.
Deji Karim and Jamar Newsome are listed as the kick returners with rookie Cecil Shorts III as the primary punt returner.
