Sunday Morning Bloody Mary: Jaguars Injuries a Big Deal

New, comments

Now that we've all woken up from our tryptophan induced coma's, we need to focus on today's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants. We already know the Jaguars will be without starting left tackle Eugene Monroe today. This is a big hit for the Jaguars offense as Monroe had been playing at a very high level the past few weeks. Not only that, but the Jaguars are going against one of the most feared pass rushing lines in the entire NFL. It's a line that's already taken out five starting quarterbacks.

As we know, the Jaguars offensive line will be without it's book-end offensive tackles. There is also a possibility wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker will be out again. The Jaguars passing game was severely limited vertically last week against the Cleveland Browns without him. The Jaguars were forced to start Tiquan Underwood in his place opposite Mike Thomas, and both struggled to produce. Thomas was still able to get five receptions and a touchdown, but his yards per catch was well under 10 yards. Underwood ended the day with one catch and two dropped touchdowns and will likely be replaced in the line-up by either special teams ace Kassim Osgood or newly acquired Jason Hill.

Maurice Jones-Drew is also questionable with an abdominal injury, but I would expect him to play through the injury.

And don't forget during today's game, ENJOY WITH ABSOLUT RESPONSIBILITY®
