Jacksonville Jaguars starting guard Will Rackley suffered a concussion in the Jaguars Week 8 contest against the San Francisco 49ers, as he left in the first half of the loss with what seemed to be a significant concussion. Even though he has had a bye week to rest, Rackley’s status is iffy for this week’s divisional game against the Tennessee Titans. Per ESPN NFL Nation’s Michael DiRocco, the Jaguars have listed Rackley as questionable on the injury report, so his status is totally up in the air this week.
If Rackley is unable to play on Sunday, then the Jaguars will have to turn to utility backup interior OL Mike Brewster for the start, and Brewster came in for Rackley when he suffered the concussion against the Niners. Although Rackley was fully expected to be back this week, DiRocco reports that his concussion symptoms have re-appeared this week, thus causing him to be listed questionable on the injury report.
The Jaguars starting left guard is undergoing more concussion tests, and we’ll see if he’s able to make the start against the Titans. He looks like a true game-time decision, and his health his key going up against a Titans interior DL that features top pass rusher Jurrell Casey, who had a big game last week against the St. Louis Rams.
