Posluszny had three plates inserted into his right hand on Wednesday after breaking it last week at Tennessee. The Jaguars (4-8) believe he might play next week against Atlanta with his hand heavily wrapped.
It will be Posluszny's second missed game this season. When the ninth-year pro sat out against Tampa Bay with an ankle injury in October, the Jaguars allowed 183 yards rushing.
Posluszny says ''there's nothing worse than missing games. I just want to make sure I take advantage of the opportunities I can because I don't know how many more I'm going to have.''
