Jaguars expected to lose right tackle Eben Britton for season

The Jaguars offense took another massive blow Sunday when they lost right tackle Eben Britton, possibly for the season.

Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reports an MRI on Monday is expected to confirm Britton will miss the season with a shoulder injury.  The second-year tackle was a second round pick last season, and has started all 22 games he’s played.

Like most teams, the Jaguars aren’t especially deep at tackle.  Jordan Black replaced Britton on Sunday against the Chiefs.

  1. Jaguars aren’t going anywhere this year anyway; Jordan Black can use the experience starting the remaining games this season. At least the new QB drafted next year will have an O-Line and some receivers with experience…
    Jaguars off season needs (in order) are: a new head coach, defensive coordinator, a secondary coach, a quarterback, two safeties, a center, and a cornerback. Center is to replace a still effective but aging Brad Meester; allowing the young quarterback and center to develop together.
    Jags may be competitive by 2012, until then expect the same inconsistency we have witnessed since 2007.
