The Jacksonville Jaguars could be without offensive lineman Eben Britton tonight when they take on the Baltimore Ravenson Monday Night Football. Britton's back injury flared up last weekend in Pittsburgh and he was forced to miss the game, leaving the Jaguars offensive line to once again shuffle. Britton is officially listed as doubtful on the injury report for the game, so it's unlikely he'll even be active. If Britton is active, he'll be used for emergency reasons only, similar to Eugene Monroe against the Bengals.

If Britton cannot go, it's likely that rookie Will Rackley will once again get the start at left guard, however veteran lineman Jason Spitz will be available for the third time this season, dealing with his own injuries. Rackley opened the season as a starter but struggled out of the gate. The rookie lineman has been responsible for at least one sack in every game he's played in. Against the Baltimore Ravens defense, Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert will need all the help he can get.
