Britton Done For The Season

It was reported by the Jaguars today that right tackle Eben Britton suffered a torn labrum and he will likely miss the rest of the 2010 season. After being selected by the Jaguars in the second round of the 2009 draft, Britton has started in 22 of the team's 23 games.



"There is a concern with Eben and his shoulder," Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said following Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. "That is probably the one that right away I was told he wasn't able to go back and that is the injury that has the most concern right now."

With undrafted rookie tackle Kevin Haslam inactive for Sunday's game, the team played veteran Jordan Black in Britton's place and Black struggled mightily.

"It just kind of happened that we had an injury on the offensive line and brought Jordan Black in and we had to kind of switch some things up for that and they took advantage of one of our offensive linemen being out," Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew explained. "They were blitzing us a little bit more and getting more pressure on us and forcing Todd (Bouman) to get the ball out quick."

The Jaguars will likely make a decision between the aforementioned Jordan Black and undrafted rookie Kevin Haslam from Rutgers, who played very well in the preseason.

"I'm just going to work as hard as I can and do whatever the coaching staff asks of me," Haslam told JagNation earlier this year.

Expect to see more runs and quicker three-step drops from the quarterbacks with the Jaguars starting right tackle out.
