Paul Posluszny out against Bears with injury

New, comments

The Jaguars starting linebacker won't make the trip to Chicago.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without Paul Posluszny in Week 2 of the preseason against the Chicago Bears, as the team has decided to sit him out of the game with an injury. The injury however is minor and shouldn't be an issue going forward.

Posluszny is coming off arguably the best season in his NFL career, at least statistically, and made the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl as an alternate.

With the additions to the Jaguars defensive line this season, Poz should be in line for another good season statistically and that started to show in the first preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With guys like Red Bryant and a healthy Roy Miller absorbing blockers, Posluszny should be able to knife in and pick up tackles, hopefully for a loss.

With Poz out of the lineup, it's likely that Nate Stupar will get the start at inside linebacker.
