Jags Lose Mathis

The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced that cornerback Rashean Mathis will miss the remainder of the season because of a knee injury.

Mathis suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee during Monday night's loss to the Houston Texans, according to the team.

He won't need surgery but won't be healed in time to play again this season, Jaguars Coach Jack Del Rio told reporters today.

The former Pro Bowl selection is to be replaced in the Jaguars' starting lineup by Drayton Florence.

Its a same that his season has to end like this. How will the Jags contain the big plays now. They lost their best cover corner in a busted play. This is just how the jags season has gone so far. The last two games just sum it up. I have been a jags fan for most of my life and i hope they can turn it around in the last 4 games.
