The Jacksonville Jaguars will (finally) be starting rookie linebacker Myles Jack against the Indianapolis Colts in London, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
LB Myles Jack to start for Jaguars versus Colts Sunday— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) October 2, 2016
Dan Skuta, who was the team's OTTO linebacker and outside linebacker opposite Telvin Smith, is injured for the game, prompting head coach Gus Bradley and defensive coordinator Todd Wash to make the move.
This will be Jack's first start for the Jaguars. He previously played special teams in all three games up to this point and played garbage time middle linebacker in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers.
Aside from Dan Skuta, the other inactives for the Jaguars are tight end Julius Thomas, defensive end Jared Odrick, offensive lineman Chris Reed, quarterback Brandon Allen, tight end Ben Koyack, and cornerback Dwayne Gratz. It's surprising that Gratz is the inactive and Josh Johnson is on the active roster. It probably points to Gratz being the cut when Aaron Colvin returns from suspension next game.
