Quick Bytes: AFC South Injuries Edition

Quick Bytes: The daily digest of everything you need to know about the Jacksonville Jaguars (and other things).

:The Colts offseason of great concern continues. They've been hit hard by the injury bug, and it isn't even August yet.

Strong Safety Bob Sanders and DE Dwight Freeney will probably be starting training camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
Colts LB Tyjuan Hagler also will be on the PUP list after a recent pectoral injury he suffered during strength training.

Hagler was expected to be a starter this season, and his injury stings, however, the more telling story is Dwight Freeney. He still isn't healthy enough to perform, and although all the Colts' are saying he'll be back for the season opener, I have my doubts. One thing is for certain, he won't be the same beast this year.

:Joe Jurevicius may need microfracture surgery in addition to his recent June 30th clean up surgery. Matt Jones may be looking a little bit better to the Browns now, so perhaps the Jaguars could find interest in Cleveland.

: According to the NFL Network, Grady Jackson still wants to play this season and may lower his asking price to find a suitor.

: The 2009 Supplemental Draft has been canceled for next year due to a lack of applicants. Jared Gaither was the lone gem to come out of last year's supplemental draft and was snagged by the Ravens for a mid round pick (4th-5th rd), which was subtracted from the Ravens draft earlier this year. He may be Ogden's successor and is looking like a steal, some of you may remember that there was a brief debate as to whether the Jags should pursue Jared, but his off the field issues ultimately led the Jags to pass on him.  

:The Pittsburgh Steelers are for sale... Unlike a bad Twilight Zone episode though, this is for real.

The storied Pittsburgh Steelers football franchise has been secretly shopped to potential buyers amid continuing divisions among the five sons of the team's founder, Art Rooney Sr.  

Some of the brothers and younger third-generation family members are asking whether a better deal can be put together, if there is to be an ownership change.
