The Jacksonville Jaguars get set to return home and face the Atlanta Falcons in their fourth and final preseason game of the 2012 NFL season. One of the biggest questions surrounding the fourth preseason game is if the starters will actually play and if they do play, how long will they be in the game.
Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey addressed that question at practice on Saturday.
"The talk is up to a quarter. It’s going to be really based on the series," said Mularkey. "How many three and outs. If they’re three and out defense we will probably go another series. They’re going to play no less than ten or twelve plays right now."
For the most part, the Jaguars offense has looked better this season than last so far, but did struggle against the Baltimore Ravens last week. If the Jaguars offense and defense each have a nice first series, that's likely the only action they will and should see, given the run of injuries lately.
