Ereck Flowers has not made a start since joining the Jaguars earlier this season, but that’s set to change on Sunday.

Head coach Doug Marrone said on Friday that Flowers is likely going to be at left tackle against the Steelers. Josh Walker missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful to play because of foot and ankle injuries.

Flowers was the starting left tackle for the Giants the last three seasons and his play was regularly criticized over that time. The Giants moved him to right tackle this year and he started the first two games before being benched this year. He was released in early October.

Flowers will be the fourth starter at left tackle this season. Cam Robinson and Josh Wells were both placed on injured reserve before Walker moved into the lineup.

  1. Pretty desperate when this guy is getting playing time. On the bright side, they may get some effort out of him since he probably realizes this is his last chance to get more NFL money. If he plays like crap he’s done in the NFL. If he plays well in the last half of this year, some team will be dumb enough to give him another contract so he can fleece another team for a bunch of money.

  2. Steelers R going to have a field day against Flowers. Decent college player, but terrible Pro player and that is not about to change.

  3. As someone who follows the Giants all I can say is “REALLY???”

    Maybe the Jags OL coaching is waaay better than the Giants, because Flowers was horrible.
    He’s better than me, other than that he’s useless.
    Let us know how it works out 🙂

  4. All the Jag haters think they are all Scouts and Coaches. The dude is in the NFL and the haters aren’t and I guarantee Flowers would pancake all of you if you went up against him. Bunch of wanna be Scouts. I hope he does well, but even if he does the haters are gonna hate.

    Wow are they desperate for OL help As a Steelers fan, I’m excited to hear this news. Bud Dupree should get at least two sacks.
    will DuPree be wearing Me-Veon’s shoes on Sunday that he stole from his locker, Bud DuPree is a first round bust and he should worry about his own play instead of being a jackass on t.v. when he raided Bell’s locker, then Steeler fans wonder why everyone hates their team…..SMH!
