Jags O line weakened.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reeling, that might be putting it mildly. After their Week 10 loss to division rival Colts, plummeting their record to 3-6 on the season, the Jaguars lost more than just the game.

As reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars will be without center Brandon Linder for at least the Week 11 game vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers after suffering a knee injury.

The loss of Linder couldn’t come at a worse time for Jacksonville, especially as the team finally got their prized running back Leonard Fournette back in the lineup after missing the first half of the season with a hamstring injury.

Linder, who was given a monster five-year, $51.7 million extension in 2017, is considered one of the game’s premiere centers, and the likes of Stephon Tuitt, Cameron Heyward and Javon Hargrave will now have to deal with a backup rather than Linder.

The Steelers won’t be looking for any favors, nor will they need any extra motivation when facing the Jaguars this Sunday. The film from 2017 as the Jaguars went into Heinz Field and didn’t just beat the Steelers twice, but embarrassed them in the process, won’t be quickly forgotten for the boys in black-and-gold.

I hope Ben lights up that mouthy CB who called him average.

Not happy Fournette is back. Time to find out if our run defense is better this year.

I hope Big Dan is back to wreak havoc to the Jacksonville back up center.

After what happened last year, I can't see this as a trap game for the Steelers.

One would hope that there is no lack of attention to detail this week.

After what has happened the past decade, why can't you?

Hopefully the Panther game spilled blood in the water and the team got a taste for it. There can't be anyone in that locker room ready to go BACK to the old feeling of squeaking by.

And there is one thing you do with a wounded animal, you put it down before it bites you. The Jags are a wounded animal.

Hargrave might as well just go ahead and line up in the Jags backfield.

Even as the leader of the "Because Tomlin" movement, I have to agree with Polt on this one. I could be 100% wrong, but I have a feeling the Jags are about to get bitch slapped along with their mommas.

Let's hope so, but I also just heard Tomlin say that same JAX O line, that whooped us good last year, was missing a starting center. :shock:
