The Jaguars have luckily been relatively fortunate in the injury department at just about every position, with the exception of the interior offensive line.

While there are dings and injuries for several players including some potential defensive starters like Derek Cox, Clint Session and Austen Lane, the team has been fortunate enough to keep those players in line for a return in time for the regular season in September.

One player that will surely not be back in time for week one against the Vikings is backup center John Estes who had surgery earlier in the week. Couple that injury with a four to six week injury for guard Jason Spitz and a three to four week injury for starting guard Will Rackley and suddenly the Jaguars are thin between the offensive tackles.

To quell the issue the Jaguars have looked to move Eben Britton to the interior of the line and have switched defensive tackle Drew Nowak to the guard spot where he was relatively successful in his first preseason game.
