Silver and Bleak: Jaguars fall to 0-2 | jacksonville.com

At least the Jaguars didn’t have to endure a cross-country flight and wee-hour arrival back home after their second debacle in as many weeks.No, as they departed the locker room Sunday night following a 19-9 loss to the Oakland Raiders, all that awaited the players and coaches was a 25-minute bus ride down Interstate 880 to the hotel serving as their headquarters this week.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew left Sunday's game with a sprained ankle in the second quarter versus the Oakland Raiders. He did not return, and the Raiders won 19-9. Jones-Drew was seen having his left ankle re-taped on the sideline just before halftime. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley announced after the game that X-rays were negative, and The Florida Times-Union reported Jones-Drew would have an MRI. He managed just 27 yards on 10 carries before the injury. Jordan Todman took over as the Jaguars' lead back with Jones-Drew sidelined.

No smiles, just resolve

There were no smiles, and there was no laughing. Bleak. Quiet. Uncomfortable. That’s how it is in losing locker rooms, and it’s sure how it was in the Jaguars’ locker room at O.co Coliseum Sunday afternoon following a second consecutive double-digit loss to start the 2013 regular season, the first season of the Gus Bradley/David Caldwell era. Silence ruled as the visitors dressed for the short bus ride back to Fremont, Calif., where the Jaguars will spend the week preparing to play Seattle Sunday.

The eighth amendment protects Americans against cruel and unusual punishment, which theoretically should safeguard NFL fans from ever having to watch a Jacksonville Jaguars game. But because of the NFL’s arcane rules about secondary television markets, Orlando is stuck having to watch the woeful Jags. That means football fans hoping to see the 4:25 p.m. Manning Bowl between the Denver Broncos and New York Giants instead had to sit through Jacksonville play Oakland. That’s like expecting to see Citizen Kane but getting Grown Ups 2 instead.
