Jaguars depth chart: Michael Brewster earns starting job

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Undrafted rookie Michael Brewster has taken over the starting left guard job and looks to have a hold on it.

To the surprise of many, the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to start rookie interior lineman Michael Brewster at left guard over Eben Britton on Sunday. Britton had been the team's starting guard and dealing with injury, but after his game against the Oakland Raiders the Jaguars apparently thought it was time for a change at the position.

"Just production. I just felt like we weren’t getting what we wanted to right now out of that position," Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters on Monday. "We felt like we needed to change and give Mike Brewster a chance to go in there. I thought Mike did a pretty good job there. Again, Mike’s taking advantage of every opportunity we’ve presented to him. He’s doing what we’ve asked. You talk about guys that finish plays, he’s one of them."

From the sounds of it, Brewster has played well enough to take the position from Britton permanently, at least in the short term.

"We’re not going to make a change there right now," Mularkey said.
