JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jaguars rookie linebacker Justin Durant and second-year offensive tackle Richard Collier were arrested in separate incidents early Saturday, and neither made the trip to New Orleans.|
Jacksonville police arrested Collier for driving under the influence, and Durant was charged with resisting arrest without violence.
The Jaguars placed Collier on the reserve/suspended list Saturday. The team said Collier and Durant didn't travel for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Tight end Isaac Smolko was activated from the practice squad to replace Collier.
The team declined further comment.
At 4 p.m. Saturday, Collier remained in custody, according to Duval County jail officials. Durant was released earlier in the day on $2,500 bail.
Collier has been inactive every game this season. Durant, a second-round pick from Hampton, played in six games with two starts and has 13 tackles.
The Jaguars have had eight players arrested since January 2006.
