Luke Joeckel injury: What are the Jaguars options at OT?

The Jaguars lost Luke Joeckel for the season three days after trading Eugene Monroe, so where do they go from here?

The Jaguars went from the offensive tackle position seemingly looking like a strength to it now being a black hole outside of Cameron Bradfield and Austin Pasztor, the team's likely starting tackles going forward in 2013.

The team traded Eugene Monroe to the Baltimore Ravens the week of their matchup with the St. Louis Rams, which garnered mixed reviews, but then just three days after the trade became official lost rookie Luke Joeckel to a broken ankle, which has sidelined him for the season.

So where do the Jaguars go from here?

Well, the most likely scenario is the team promotes DeMarcus Love from the practice squad to the active roster and then scours the waiver wire and free agency for a swing tackle to add to the 53-man roster and/or the practice squad.

The problem? The offensive tackle market is always thin during the season. I'd run down a list of some of the free agents available, but I honestly couldn't tell you much about any of them.
