The Jacksonville Jaguars were one of the healthiest teams in the league over the first 10 weeks of the season.
No starters on injured reserve. Only a few backups out for the year. It one was one of the bright spots in an otherwise dismal season.
It all changed Monday. The Jaguars placed cornerback Rashean Mathis, guard Eben Britton and backup linebacker/special teams standout Kyle Bosworth on injured reserve because of injuries.
Mathis tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Sunday at Indianapolis and will have season-ending surgery. Britton, who missed the last four games, developed an infection following back surgery in training camp. Bosworth broke his left hand against the Colts.
Coach Jack Del Rio calls the injuries ''life in the NFL.''
Jacksonville plays at Cleveland Sunday.
