Injury Report Update

The Jaguars have six players on the injury report, all listed as questionable.  TE Marcades Lewis (ankle), G Chris Naeole (knee), MLB Mike Peterson (knee), SS Gerald Sensabaugh (ankle), DE Paul Spicer (groin), DT Marcus Stroud (ankle).

I expect to see Peterson, Sensabaugh, Spicer and Stroud play their normal rotations, given the state of the Jags D-line.  Marcades Lewis should see a few plays but Brady and Wrighster should get the majority of snaps at TE.  

Pittsburg has one questionable player, QB Ben Roethlisberger (appendectomy), and five probable: SS Troy Polamalu (shoulder), T Max Starks (knee), TE Jermane Tuman (hamstring), WR Hines Ward (hamstring), WR Nate Washington (knee).  Because the Steelers have open practices it's very unlikely for them to screw around with injury reports.  You'll see Big Ben on the field at QB, I guarantee it.

For the Jags, look for LOTS of rotations on the D-line with maybe even the occasional 3-4 look, both to confuse Ben and to let the backups have a rest.  

It'll be rough without Hayward, but we're deep.
