Earlier in the week the Jacksonville Jaguars claimed linebacker Nate Bussey, who was released by the New Orleans Saints. On Friday, Bussey will likely get some playing time late in the game against the team who released him.

"It's amazing going back to a place I just left,'' Bussey told The Florida Times-Union. "I definitely have a chip on my shoulder knowing I got released. I want to prove to everybody I can play football. That's all I want to do.'
