The Jaguars notched their first win of the season but it looks like it came at a cost.
The team will place linebacker Paul Posluszny on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle, and defensive end Andre Branch will miss 6-8 weeks with a strained groin.
Posluszny, an eight-year veteran was leading the team with 69 tackles in 7 games, but has been a liability in pass defense. Jacksonville will likely slide either J.T. Thomas III or Geno Hayes inside and start speedy rookie Telvin Smith on the weak side.
Former second-round pick Andre Branch was having the best season of his career as he’s second on the team with three sacks. It’s likely that second-year, former undrafted free agent Ryan Davis will receive more snaps in his place. Davis has been very active in his limited reps and there are people within the organization that are excited about what he might be able to do in a greater role.
Jags Lose Posluszny, Branch
