Paul Posluszny injury: Jaguars LB suffers concussion

Wesley Hitt

Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny could miss some time after suffering a concussion against the Titans in Week 10.

The Jaguars earned their first win of the season on Sunday, but with it, the team lost their defensive team captain, Paul Posluszny, who suffered a concussion late, head coach Gus Bradley told the media on Monday.

Bradley told reporters that Poslsuzny was asking to re-enter the game after suffering the head injury, but is now in the NFL's concussion program. While his status for the team's Week 11 home game against the Arizona Cardinals is not yet known, Bradley told reporters that it would be Russell Allen, not LaRoy Reynolds, that would fill in at middle linebacker if he is inactive for the game.

If Allen fills in for Posluszny, Bradley didn't reveal who would take over at strong-side linebacker, although former Seattle Seahawks linebacker John Lotulelei would seem to be the most logical choice.

Posluszny, 29, was a second-round selection of the Buffalo Bills in the 2007 NFL Draft and joined the Jaguars in free agency in 2011. He has since started all 41 games since joining the Jaguars and has tallied five sacks, seven interceptions and four forced fumbles with the team.
