Inside the Jaguars: Guards getting better
The Jaguars were headed West Friday. Before they did, Head Coach Gus Bradley got good news amid a few worries on the injury front, with starting guards Will Rackleyand Uche Nwaneri remaining possibilities to play Sunday in the second game of the 2013 regular season. Cornerback Alan Ball did not practice Friday, leaving open the possibility that the Jaguars will be without their starting corners Sunday against the Raiders. The situation with Ball has left the team’s punt returner situation uncertain, with Bradley saying this week wide receiver Ace Sanders or cornerback Will Blackmon could fill the role.
Jaguars head to West Coast for consecutive games | Boston Herald
Maurice Jones-Drew doesn't need to hear the numbers. He's painfully aware of them. The Jacksonville Jaguars running back in winless in four trips to the West Coast, including 0-2 in the Bay Area. And his stats aren't pretty, either. Jones-Drew has 146 yards rushing on 41 carries and no touchdowns in games at Seattle (2009), San Francisco (2009), San Diego (2010) and Oakland (2012). "Obviously we hope those things change," said Jones-Drew, who attended De La Salle high school in Concord, Calif., and still has a home in nearby Blackhawk. "But it has been a rough West Coast for me, so we'll see how those things go."
