The Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping Sunday’s game at home will bring them another victory. The only problem is they may have to do it with their best defensive player on the sidelines.
Paul Posluszny suffered a concussion on Sunday in the win against Tennessee. Now, as part of the him being in the NFL’s concussion program – along with tackle Will Rackley and receiver Stephen Burton – a time table is not known yet when the linebacker who leads the team in tackles, will be allowed to play.
Head coach Gus Bradley said he hoped to know more on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com’s Mike DiRocco.
The Jaguars put on their best defensive performance on Sunday, causing four take-aways from the Titans and scoring nine points in the game, the last two scores to secure the win.

Reynolds’ suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to return to the Jaguars’ active roster on Friday, December 6 following the team’s December 5 game against the Houston Texans.
Henne remains starter
Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne had by far his worst game of the season as a starter for the Jaguars on Sunday.
Henne despite completed 14 of 23 passes for 180 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions. He was off target on many of his passes, and had several passes batted down by the Titans’ defensive linemen.
In the six games Henne has been the starter, he has completed 146 of 241 passes for 1,630 yards and three touchdowns with seven interceptions.
Notes on the Cardinals
Arizona is 5-4 this season and has won its last two contests. The team may have found it running game with the legs of Andre Ellington the rookie runner from Clemson.
The Cardinals, under first season head coach Bruce Arians, have surprised a few in the NFC and the NFL. While quarterback Carson Palmer is not the elite quarterback he once was, he still can throw it down the field and has receiver Larry Fitzgerald in the lineup. It will be interesting to see how rookie Dwayne Gratz and Alan Ball play Fitzgerald throughout the game.
