JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without starting linebacker Clint Ingram in the season opener against Tennessee.
Ingram, a second-year pro from Oklahoma, sprained his ankle in the preseason opener at Miami on Aug. 11 and has practiced sparingly since. He was ruled out Friday. Either Pat Thomas or rookie Justin Durant will start in his place.
Thomas hasn't started a game in his two seasons and spent most of last year on injured reserve. Durant, the three-time Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference defensive player of the year, was a second-round pick from Hampton.
Center Brad Meester (ankle), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (knee) and defensive end Kenny Pettway (quadriceps) also were ruled out for the opener.
Defensive end Brent Hawkins (illness), defensive end Reggie Hayward (Achilles' tendon), defensive tackle John Henderson (shoulder), and guard Chris Naeole (knee) were listed as probable.
