Not surprisingly, running back Beanie Wells sat out practice today with his sore knee. Whether Wells plays Sunday is unknown, but as usual, if he can’t practice all week, playing is a longshot. Having Beanie available or not makes a big difference. The Jaguars were able to topple the Ravens Monday night in large part because of their defense, but also because on offense, they fed Maurice Jones-Drew 30 times to take pressure off quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Beanie could be that guy too, if he could play.
Having a pair of receivers sitting out — Early Doucet (quadricep) and DeMarco Sampson (hamstring) — isn’t great either. At least tight end Todd Heap (hamstring) was back to work, at least on a limited basis. Go here for the full injury report.
