Jaguars offense looks like it will be more shorthanded than usual

One of the funniest things about the Jets pulling Mark Sanchez in the 7-6 victory over the Cardinals last week is that he wasn’t even the worst quarterback on the field.

Bad as Sanchez was, Ryan Lindley was worse and wound up playing the entire game. We bring that up because it looks like the Jets offense will have a hard time being worse than the opposition again this week.

The Jaguars have perked up a bit offensively with Chad Henne at the reins, but it looks like they’re going to be rolling into Sunday shorthanded. Running back Rashad Jennings and wide receiver Cecil Shorts have missed practice on both Wednesday and Thursday as they recover from concussions they suffered in last week’s loss to the Bills.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew also hasn’t practiced, leaving him on track to miss a seventh straight game, so Jennings’ absence will leave the Jags’ running game to Montell Owens, Jordan Todman and Richard Murphy. Coach Mike Mularkey said earlier this week that Shorts passed the tests required by the concussion protocol, although he’s still experiencing symptoms. That doesn’t quite add up and it sounds like the Jags have a good chance of playing without their top receiver.

    Cecil passed the concussion test. But it took him eleven tries and three and a half hours to do it.

    Watching the Jags all year has given me concussion symptoms going on 3 months now. If Tebow happens to have a hand in beating my Jags at home, send me to IR with a DNR on my chart.
