Let me start by pointing out that being listed as Probable on an injury report means that the individual WILL be playing... Very rarely does someone listed as probable on a report not play.

Troy Williamson is going to be sidelined so I suspect we'll see Mike Walker get his first action of the regular season and I'd be shocked If Jerry Porter doesn't see the field, he's being paid to much to be a spectator and could give this offense the sure handed deep threat it needs.

It's good to see someone with as much potential as Charles Spencer already practicing. There were some worries that his severe rookie injury might hamper his ability to compete, but it seems as if he's already practicing, which is a very positive sign. I've said before he may be more than a one year stop-gap solution.

Derek Landri should make his triumphant return to the field as well this Sunday. That's big news for two reasons... First, it's going to be sweltering on the field, and the more bodies we can rotate on the D-line the better. Secondly, he's one of the few interior linemen the Jags have who can get after the QB. Unlike some of our other DTs who serve mainly as run stoppers, Derek seems to have the abilty to slither through opposing offensive lines and disrupt the passer, something that the Jags will have to do to win this one.

I wouldn't concern myself to much with the litany of players listed on the injury report, that's just a result of playing an extremely physical game against the Titans last week. I'd suspect that we'll see everyone play who's listed as probable and most likely Porter this week as well. We need a big game offensively, and if we are forced to max-protect as much as we did last week, then having a superb route runner like Porter will be a big key to any success we have in those situations.
