The Jacksonville Jaguars will have some serious omissions from their season finale against the Houston Texans with kicker Josh Lambo, A.J. Bouye, and fourth-string left tackle Josh Wells all ruled out already.
Josh Lambo (groin), A.J. Bouye (toe) and Josh Wells (concussion) are out for Sunday.— Daniel Popper (@danielrpopper) December 28, 2018
Leonard Fournette (ankle/foot) is doubtful.
Carlos Hyde (knee) and D.J. Hayden (groin) are questionable. #Jaguars
I also seriously doubt Leonard Fournette is going to play in a meaningless game with an ankle injury.
And if Carlos Hyde and D.J. Hayden are also missing, well, you can almost guarantee that a higher draft pick is in our future. Why?
That would mean Ereck Flowers would be the starting left tackle against a formidable Texans defensive line. Tyler Patmon would be the starting cornerback alongside Jalen Ramsey. T.J. Yeldon and Dave Williams would not only be the only running backs on our roster but the starters.
I smell a 5-11 record at season’s end and a draft pick somewhere around fifth or sixth overall.
