Jaguars could be down 3 cornerbacks against Eagles in London
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars could be without three of their top four cornerbacks against the Philadelphia Eagles in London on Sunday.
Starter A.J. Bouye, a Pro Bowl selection in 2017, missed practice Thursday after sustaining a calf injury in drills the day before. Backups D.J. Hayden and Tyler Patmon are unlikely to play. Hayden missed the last five games with a toe injury, and Patmon injured his neck last Sunday against Houston. Neither has practiced this week.
If Bouye, Hayden and Patmon are unable to play, the Jaguars (3-4) would have three rookie cornerbacks to play alongside All-Pro Jalen Ramsey.
Tre' Herndon likely would start, with fellow undrafted rookie Quenton Meeks and newly signed Dee Delaney serving as backups. Meeks started the season on the practice squad, and Delaney was prompted to the 53-man roster Thursday.
The team placed third-string linebacker Donald Payne (knee) on injured reserve to make room for Delaney.
