JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without two starters on defense for Sunday’s season finale at Indianapolis.
Linebacker Geno Hayes (knee) will miss his second straight game. Cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle) will also be out.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says Hayes needs arthroscopic surgery on his knee.
That leaves the Jaguars with just one starting linebacker in Paul Pozluszny, after Russell Allen was placed on injured reverse Dec. 18.
Gratz was hurt Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Starting left tackle Cameron Bradfield also injured his ankle in that game. But Bradley says he did well in Thursday’s practice, and the coach feels good about Bradfield’s chances of playing Sunday.
