Jaguars failing and ailing after 34-20 loss to Rams |

When the obituary of this getting-worse-by-the-week Jaguars season is finalized in late December, it will include chapters on managing only a safety in the home opener against Kansas City, not scoring a first-half touchdown until the fifth game and being linked to every free agent quarterback in North America.But early in the book should be what happened on consecutive plays Sunday inside the Edward Jones Dome, at a point when the Jaguars appeared to have some kind of momentum.

Jaguars OT Luke Joeckel done for season with broken ankle -

The Jaguars can't catch a break. Not long after losing 34-20 in St. Louis to fall to 0-5, Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley announced first-round pick and starting left tackle Luke Joeckel would miss the rest of the year. Joeckel suffered a high ankle fracture during the Jaguars loss during the first quarter of the Jaguars' 34-20 loss to the Rams and was carted off. The No. 2 overall pick, Joeckel began the season at right tackle but moved to the left side this week after the Jaguars dealt former first-round pick Eugene Monroe to the Ravens for a pair of later-round picks. The move made some sense -- Monroe was in a contract year and unlikely to stay in Baltimore -- especially given the Jags could plug Joeckel in on the left side and see how held up protecting the blind side of Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne.

Game Notes |

Second-year wide receiver Justin Blackmon made his 2013 debut on Sunday and finished with five catches for 136 yards (27.2 avg.) and one touchdown. The 136 yards marked his second career 100-yard receiving game and second-most yards of his career (236 yards, Nov. 18, 2012 at Houston). His 27.2 yards per catch marked the fifth-highest in franchise history. Blackmon took his first reception from Blaine Gabbert 67 yards for a touchdown. It marked the second-longest reception of Blackmon’s career (81 yards, Nov. 18, 2012 at Houston). In addition to his touchdown, he had receptions of 39 and 14 yards. He has eight receptions of 25-plus yards in the last five road games.
