The Jacksonville Jaguars will reportedly place right guard Brandon Linder on injured reserve, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Linder injured his shoulder in practice leading up to their Week 3 matchup against the New England Patriots. It's reportedly a labrum tear. Recovery time is usually 8-12 weeks before any stress can be put on the shoulder itself, so if it's indeed that, there's no point in rushing Linder back for a meaningless Week 17 game.
The Jaguars will likely use A.J. Cann as a fill-in for Linder for the remainder of the season, as they did this week against the Indianapolis Colts.
