WR Christian Kirk among 7 Jags players who won’t play vs. Browns

·1 min read

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be sitting seven players in Friday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Among them will be receiver Christian Kirk, who rolled his ankle in practice this week.

While the injury isn’t believed to be serious, the decision to sideline Kirk doesn’t come as a surprise as coach Doug Pederson has been smart with his players. Additionally, there is no shortage of receivers on the team, at the moment, as there are currently 12 on the roster. That said, there will now be more playing time for some bubble receivers as Laviska Shenault Jr. is also sitting on Friday.

 

As for the rest of the players who will sit, they were mostly expected as Pederson mentioned many of them earlier this week.
