Gus Bradley: Austin Pasztor 'would not start' against Chargers

New, comments

There were hopes that the Jaguars would have their starting right tackle back in time to play the Chargers, and while he may play head coach Gus Bradley said he won't start.

The Jacksonville Jaguars look to be just one week away from having all five of their starters on the offensive line back.

Head coach Gus Bradley said that while right tackle Austin Pasztor would be on the active roster against the San Diego Chargers, he wouldn't be starting.

"I think with Austin Pasztor is just to see where he’s at," Bradley told reporters on Friday afternoon. "We’ll get updated today. I know that some of his cast was removed. He’s got three fingers exposed so we’re making progress there. We’ll see how that benefited him today. That will be more of a game-time decision with him."

But when asked directly whether the game-time decision was for Pasztor to start or whether it was for a decision for him to play at all, Bradley made it very clear.

"He would not start, correct."

Pasztor has been sidelined since August 14 with a broken hand he suffered in Week 2 of the preseason against the Chicago Bears. The injury forced him to wear, and practice with a cast.

In other injury news, Bradley said he believes wide receiver Allen Hurns will play the No. 3 position against the Chargers, erasing doubts that the ankle injury he suffered against Washington would sideline him long.

Fellow rookie receiver Marqise Lee, however, is on a longer timetable. Bradley said he expects Lee to start running next week, so a return to the lineup in next week's matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers looks questionable.
