Paul Posluszny injury: Jaguars LB ruled out

The Jaguars have ruled Paul Posluszny out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny suffered a concussion against the Tennessee Titans last Sunday, when he and defensive end Andre Branch collided on a tackle. Posluszny got up and immediately collapsed on the field. He was ruled out the rest of the game, as an equipment manager had to hide his helmet, and he's now been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

For all the criticism Posluszny receivers for his massive contract, he's still a leader on the defense and makes all the calls, so he'll be missed.

In his stead will be veteran Russell Allen, who will be moving in from his outside linebacker spot. This means that there should be more John Lotulelei on the field, who the Jaguars claimed on waivers a few weeks ago.
