The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without starting safety Dwight Lowery against the Oakland Raiders, as he's dealing with a foot/ankle injury. Back up safety Chris Prosinski will get the start.

Back up safety Chris Prosinski will get his first career start against the Oakland Raiders next week when the Jacksonville Jaguars make the trip out west, as starting safety Dwight Lowery will be out "a couple of weeks," according to head coach Mike Mularkey on Wednesday.

Lowery must have injured his foot/ankle against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but the exact injury is not known at this time because teams are not required to issue an injury report during they bye week. The injury is significant enough however for Mularkey to announce that Lowery will miss the game.

Prosinski, who has rightfully drawn a lot of fan ire, has played mostly on special teams and in some of the Jaguars three safety defensive packages. He's blown a few coverages and missed some tackles, giving up big gains, but will get a chance to show what exactly he can do as a starting safety in the NFL for at least one game.
