Jaguars notes: Britton won't be back against Colts |
Jaguars offensive lineman Eben Britton was not at practice Wednesday and Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio ruled him out for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Mathis: 'We feel it can be done'
Whatever the perception, Rashean Mathis said the goal remains the same. And while the Jaguars’ veteran cornerback said anyone outside the team may find the concept not only difficult to accept, but pretty unbelievable, he said that doesn’t change how players within the locker room feel.


Short stuff an issue for Gabbert, Jaguars - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Jack Del Rio said Wednesday that rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert has done difficult things well but needs to do simpler things better. Like what? How about short throws?
