Jags' Linder out for season with knee injury

Jaguars center Brandon Linder will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a right knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Brandon Linder's injury results in a significant pass blocking loss for the Jaguars. Linder ranked first among all centers in pass block win rate (92%) and second among all qualifying blockers in the NFL, only behind Rams OT Andrew Whitworth. (ESPN pass blocking metrics use NFL Next Gen Stats).

And that'll do it. The Jaguars will lose after Rashad Greene's fumble. At 3-6, their season is likely over, too. Hard to recover from an 0-3 mark in the division. The Jaguars rolled up 414 yards of offense but couldn't overcome a 29-point first half by the Colts. Have to think Greene was on the field because the Jaguars have lost confidence in Keelan Cole, who had five drops and two fumbles in October.

Jaguars K Josh Lambo misses his first field goal attempt of the season, pulling a 52-yarder wide left. That's the first time he's missed a field goal attempt since Nov. 19, 2017 against Cleveland. His 24 in a row is a franchise record.

Jaguars say C Brandon Linder is questionable to return because of a knee injury.

Jaguars C Brandon Linder being assisted off the field. Not able to put any weight on his right leg. Appeared the medical staff was doing a stability test on his right knee before helping him off the field. Tyler Shatley will replace Linder at center.

Had you told Jaguars fans before the game the offense would put up 16 points in the first half, they would have gladly taken it because they would have figured they'd either be ahead or the game would be close. Nobody would have expected the defense to give up 29, though. jaguars led the NFL in pass defense (190 ypg allowed) but have given up 217 in the first half. Seems like there's always something malfunctioning since October began.

Not a bad debut for LT Ereck Flowers. Couple nice blocks on running plays and the pressure on third down came from the right side. The Jaguars signed the former first-round pick on Oct. 12 after he was released by the NY Giants. Josh Walker had started the past three games at left tackle after Josh Wells suffered a groin injury.

Jaguars LB Telvin Smith, questionable with a shoulder injury, will play today. Interested to see how much more work for first-round pick Taven Bryan with Dante Fowler, Jr., gone. Lerentee McCray (hamstring) is inactive so that means Bryan and Dawuane Smoot will have to play more.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars inactives: CB A.J. Bouye, RB Dave Williams, CB Dee Delaney, CB Quenton Meeks, DT Eli Ankou, DE Lerentee McCray, OL Chris Reed. Tyler Patmon starts in place of Bouye, with D.J. Hayden (playing for first time since Week 2) assuming his normal role as nickel back.
