Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said on Tuesday afternoon that defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks would be going on season-ending injured reserve.
"[Sen’Derrick Marks] is going on IR." — #Jaguars HC Gus Bradley— Big Cat Country (@BigCatCountry) November 17, 2015
Marks has torn his triceps in the third quarter of the team's 22-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He got a second opinion on Monday, but it didn't look good even before he got that opinion. Bradley went on in detail about who would be getting extra time along the interior in case Marks couldn't go and even conceded that the team was looking at all their options.
Abry Jones, Roy Miller, and Tyson Alualu will share time along the interior defensive line. While Marks' absence will be a big blow to both the pass rush and run defense, it's not something the team can't overcome. Having another seven months to rehab his knee won't hurt, but it would have been great to make a division title run with him at the heart of this defense.
Marks finishes his 2015 season with just four games played and six total tackles.
