Jags WR Porter likely to miss another game with hamstring injury

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars receiver Jerry Porter likely will miss a third consecutive game Sunday at Indianapolis.

Limping into pivotal clash

The division favorite Colts and Jaguars each possess seemingly endless injury lists, but don't let that diminish this weekend's AFC clash, Vic Carucci says. More ...

Although Porter (hamstring) was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, coach Jack Del Rio said he doesn't believe the team's top offseason free-agent acquisition will play against the Colts.

"He's not likely to play. He's not quite ready," Del Rio said Friday.

Porter, who signed a $30 million contract in February, had surgery to repair a torn hamstring in July and missed all of training camp and the preseason. He returned to practice two weeks ago, but wasn't active in either game.

Without the big-play receiver, the Jaguars (0-2) have struggled on offense.

The Jaguars will be without linebacker Justin Durant (groin), receiver Troy Williamson (thigh), center Brad Meester (biceps) and guard Chris Naeole (knee).

"Durant's got a good pull," Del Rio said. "He's week-to-week and could miss another week."

Del Rio said running backs Fred Taylor (toe) and Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle) and safety Brian Williams (toe) will play. The trio missed parts of practice this week.
