JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – The Jacksonville Jaguars will place right guard Brandon Linder on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
The team says Linder will have surgery later this week to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The second-year starter injured his shoulder in practice two weeks ago and aggravated it in a win against Miami on Sept. 27. He was inactive for Sunday’s loss at Indianapolis.
Linder has been Jacksonville’s best lineman, starting 15 games as a rookie last season. Third-round draft pick A.J. Cann is expected to replace Linder in the starting lineup.
Linder is the latest in a growing list of injuries for the Jaguars (1-3), who are without first-round draft pick Dante Fowler Jr., tight end Julius Thomas, defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks and receiver Marqise Lee.
