The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-2 in the season so far with 1-1 away. On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Steelers are 3-1 with 1-0 home.
Brandon Linder is not going to play due to illness. Also, Jaelen Strong (wide receiver) is out due to a hamstring injury. Both of them have missed many games. Strong has been barely practicing while Linder has only played 36 out of 52 career games this year.
This is surely bad news. Without Linder, the team will succumb to the pressure from the Steelers. Tyler Shatley is the most probably name for playing center. Chris Reed is also an important player for the offense in the game against the Steelers as the first right guard backup.
There is a lot riding on fresh players this match for the Jaguars. If they do it right, they can win. Also, Jacksonville has to stop the enemy rushing if they want to have a clear shot at victory.
Star player Le’Veon Bell is back and in good form. His groin injury is no more a bother. His first game this season was the Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens which the Steelers won 26-9.
We hope that he will perform really well this match, now that he has had time to practice and come back into the fold. A good performance from Bell will be key to improving the chances of the Steelers against the Jaguars.
Further, Martavis Bryant is in the questionable region. Without their usual wide receiver, the team might not be as good as it once was in the season. He had only been in four games after his suspension.
Without Bryant, more running is a clear expectation from Justin Hunter and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
