The Jacksonville Jaguars play their final preseason game on Thursday against the Atlanta Falcons, which is generally the game that determines the back end of a team's roster. Most of the players who would be considered "on the bubble" will be available for the game, but some veterans who should be on the active roster will be sitting out with injuries.
Out against the Falcons:
OL Will Rackley (ankle)
RB Jusin Forsett (toe)
TE Marcedes Lewis (calf)
S Chris Prosinski (concussion)
LB Russell Allen (?)
QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb)
Along with those players, none of which are surprises, it appears that running back Maurice Jones-Drew is unlikely to play, as head coach Gus Bradley reiterated today after practice.
