JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jaguars receiver Reggie Williams missed practice Wednesday because of a hamstring injury and might not be ready for the season opener.
Williams, who sat out much of training camp and part of the preseason after having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, was expected to be in the starting lineup Sunday at Tennessee. But he spent Wednesday's practice riding a stationary bike and working with team trainers.
His latest injury could mean Jacksonville will try to speed up Jerry Porter's return. Porter, who had offseason surgery to repair a torn hamstring, practiced Monday for the first time in nearly three months. Coach Jack Del Rio initially said Porter needed to practice two weeks before he would be ready to play, but he has seemingly softened his stance since.
If Williams and Porter both sit out the opener, the Jaguars would have Matt Jones, Dennis Northcutt, Troy Williamson and Mike Walker at the position.
