Defensive end Aaron Kampman didn’t practice again Thursday and it’s uncertain if he will play this weekend at Indianapolis. Kampman, who suffered torn ACLs the past two seasons, had another setback during the bye week when he suffered a hamstring injury.
In a parking lot where Audis, Mercedes-Benz coupes and BMWs sit beside hulking Chevy trucks, and some sensible sedans, there is a conspicuous 2003 Crown Victoria. It’s red, with a large FAU football sticker on its rear window. The paint betrays eight years in the blistering Florida sun. It belongs to the newest member of the Jaguars’ 53-man roster.
One way or another, the end result of this Sunday’s Jags and Colts matchup will result in dissatisfaction. Although a win is always appreciated, even more so when you’re at a lowly 2-6 mark for the season, a win against a formerly-proud and formidable division rival that has been reduced to a shell of its old self would ring a bit hollow. Winning would be nice but would pale in comparison to last year’s memory of Josh Scobee booting a 59-yarder as time expired to seal the win. No, a win will only save us the derision that would come by losing to the worst team in the league, and send that team one game closer to winning the Andrew Luck lottery.
On breakout games, Clint Session and the danger facing the Colts Sunday Each week in the Magnificent Seven, jaguars.com senior writer John Oehser offers seven thoughts on all things Jaguars . . .

And when facing the team that drafted him, the team for which he played his first four NFL seasons, the Jaguars’ fifth-year linebacker won’t say the feeling won’t be strange. And he won’t say the weirdness won’t be on his mind come Sunday. Playing the Colts? Returning to Lucas Oil Stadium? Yeah, it will be different. How couldn’t it be?
