DETROIT (AP) -Jacksonville linebacker Mike Peterson, sent home earlier in the week from practices, did not dress for Sunday's game at Detroit.
According to players, Peterson and coach Jack Del Rio had a confrontation Wednesday during a team meeting when the coach called out the linebacker for a muscle-flexing celebration after he made a sack as the team trailed Cincinnati by 18 last Sunday.
The 10-year veteran rejoined the Jaguars on Friday.
Voted a captain by teammates and clearly the defensive leader, Peterson leads the team with 85 tackles. But he hasn't been one of Del Rio's favorites, especially because Peterson ripped the franchise for not offering him a contract extension during the offseason.
Rookie Thomas Williams is the only other middle linebacker on the team's depth chart.
