Luke Joeckel and Aaron Colvin among Jaguars injured

The Jaguars suffered some potentially big injuries in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars not only left Sunday's opening game with a loss to the Carolina Panthers, but they also picked up some key injuries. We won't know more about these injuries on until Wednesday's practice getting ready for the Miami Dolphins, but there's some potential big ones on the horizon, which hopefully will be pretty minor.

Left tackle Luke Joeckel left Sunday's game twice with an ankle injury after trying to play through the injury initially. The preseason punching bag was actually playing fairly well, as was most of the offensive line, but once Joeckel left the game there was a clear down turn in pressure and production. The thought is that it's an ankle sprain and it's possible Joeckel starts on Sunday against Miami.

The other player who left the game with an injury was cornerback Aaron Colvin, who hurt his shoulder late in the game. His status Sunday will be made more clear by the time Friday rolls around as he's stated he plans to give it a go at practice on Wednesday and then assess where he's at. Thankfully the Jaguars are deep at the corner position, but Colvin is one of the few play makers the team has on the defensive side of the ball.

Running back T.J. Yeldon had some knee soreness after the game and safety Johnathan Cyprien had an injured calf, but all things on both of these players seem to be fine. Rookie received Rashad Greene also left the game with what was thought to be a concussion, but he passed all the protocol and it's been ruled as a back contusion.
