Found August 28, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Jacksonville Jaguars dodged a bullet when tests revealed starting left guard Will Rackley's injury is not as serious as first suspected. Ryan O'Halloran of Jacksonville.com is reporting that an MRI indicated Rackley suffered no structural damage to his knee or ankle areas. Jaguars first-year head coach Gus Bradley is keeping his hopes up that Rackley will return for Week 1. "That's what we're hearing, that he has a good chance {to play against the Chiefs},'' Bradley said after Monday's practice. "The one good thing for the offensive lineman, you see them play with that type of injury. First {we thought} it was a knee, then it was a high ankle sprain, and they ruled both of those out. "Now I think he's heading in the right direction and I feel he has a chance to be back." The offensive line was already a position of concern for the Jaguars who are going through a rebuilding stage with Bradley. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert has found himself running for his life and unable to establish any type of rhythm during his pre-season action. Jacksonville hopes to improve on their 5-11 2012 campaign and the health of the offensive line is paramount. Wide receiver Justin Blackmon didn't help matters when he received a four game suspension for his second substance-abuse violation in less than a year. One player the coaching staff is counting on to carry the load is Veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew who is battling a foot injury of his own.

Rebuilding Jaguars avoid talk about winning

No doubt, the Jacksonville Jaguars want to win. They just don't want to focus on it, talk about it or really even think about it. So you won't hear general manager Dave Caldwell, coach Gus Bradley or many of their players mention that ultimate goal. Instead, the main theme in Jacksonville is getting better. It's the team motto these days, a catch phrase that Bradley...

Jaguars' preseason more than QB battle, mediocre finish

Quarterback controversies might fill up message boards and light up the switchboards at sports-talk radio stations, but they don't define a preseason.

For one thing, the announcement a week ago this past Monday by coach Gus Bradley that Blaine Gabbert will open the regular season as the starter rather than Chad...
