JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without guard Zane Beadles, defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks and place-kicker Josh Scobee in their preseason finale against Atlanta on Thursday.
Beadles has a calf injury, Marks has a shoulder injury and Scobee has a strained quadriceps.
The team expects all three to be ready for the Sept. 7 season opener at Philadelphia.
With Beadles out, the Jaguars will continue to tweak an offensive line that has been a work in progress throughout training camp. Center Mike Brewster was demoted, opening up the position to journeyman Jacques McClendon and rookie Luke Bowanko. Right guard also remains unsettled, with McClendon and rookie Brandon Linder vying for the spot.
