Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley informed the media on Saturday at his day-after press conference that veteran offensive guard Zane Beadles sprained his thumb on Friday evening, but that he won't be missing anytime going forward.
Zane Beadles has a sprained thumb. Will have a cast on but won't miss any time, Jaguars say.— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) August 9, 2014
It will be difficult for Beadles to play with a cast on his hand, but it's not something that's uncommon for offensive lineman to play with, especially on the interior.
The Jaguars typically run more of a zone-style blocking scheme, so there is some cutting and such from the guards and center, so as long as Beadles has the ability to move around it shouldn't be a huge effect going forward.
Beadles had a decent first preseason game, meaning I didn't really notice him and typically that's a good thing for an offensive lineman.
