The Jacksonville Jaguars' defense will be without one of its starters for several games, as coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that safety Dwight Lowery will be sidelined for two to three weeks with an ankle injury.
Jeremiah: To protect and sack
In today's NFL,
says there's one stat that really defines success (or lack thereof): sack differential.
Lowery was injured in the second half of the Jaguars' 41-3 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Lowery started all five of the Jaguars' games so far this season and recorded 18 tackles and three passes defensed. Second-year pro Chris Prosinski will take over for Lowery, Mularkey said.
Coach Mike Mularkey says Lowery will miss the team's Oct. 21 game at Oakland and maybe the following week at Green Bay. The Jaguars are off this week.
