Jaguars begin shuffling their interior offensive line

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

After some mishaps in the first preseason game, the Jaguars have started tinkering with the interior of their offensive line.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had some issues on the interior of their offensive line, which is something a lot of people expected to see. It didn't take long for the coaching staff to begin shuffling the players playing at center and guard after the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to reports at practice on Monday, Michael Brewster started with the first team in 11x11 drills as the starting center, but Jacques McClendon was also getting first team reps at center with rookie right guard Brandon Linder with the first unit.

With the backups, however, Linder reportedly got some reps at center.

This was an expected battle, as head coach Gus Bradley noted that three players were vying for two starting spots on the offensive line. In the first game of the preseason McClendon was with the first unit at right guard and then the second unit at center, while Linder was at right guard with the second unit.

The Jaguars stated Brewster will start at center, but don't be surprised if the interior lineman against the Chicago Bears on Thursday are shuffled quite a bit.
