With Shorts out, the Jaguars will count on three rookies (Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns) and second-year proMike Brown at receiver. Denard Robinson is also listed at wide receiver on the roster, but he’s currently the club’s top reserve tailback. The Jaguars also have wide receivers Kerry Taylor and Tony Washington on the practice squad.

Matthew Tucker and Kenjon Barner were hurt on back-to-back plays in the second quarter Thursday night against the Jets.
After a four-yard run off the left end, Tucker went to the sidelines and was clearly in discomfort. It was later revealed that he sustained a shoulder injury. Barner replaced Tucker and rushed for five yards on the next play but hurt his ankle on the run and limped off. Tucker returned briefly but was still clearly hampered. Henry Josey and Damaris Johnson carried the load the rest of the way at running back. Josey finished with 121 yards on 22 carries (5.5 average).
