Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Scobee says injury not serious

Josh Scobee's right quadriceps injury isn't serious, he said on Monday.

An MRI performed on Sunday night revealed that Scobee has a 7-centimeter long strain in the quadriceps with no tearing.

"It's not a severe injury," he said.

A kicker, Scobee suffered the quadriceps injury during pregame warmups before Sunday's 13-10 loss to Tennessee. Scobee's injury may have played a role in the club's defeat .

With 7:38 left in the third quarter, the Jags faced a fourth down from the Titans 19. Instead of trying a 36-yard field goal, the Jaguars attempted to try for a first down.

Scobee hopes to play on Sunday against Atlanta and said that being placed on the injured reserve is not an option.

"I'm optimistic; I want to play," Scobee said. "I don't want to miss any time at all. It's kind of an injury that's gonna take time to heal. But I don't have to be 100 percent [healthy] to play."

Scobee said the club will bring in a few kickers for tryouts on Tuesday.

Question,
I guess it's going to be listed as a fumble by Mo-Jo, but did another Jaguar knock the ball loose from him as he was beginning to run?

Did you notice David moving Mo-Jo into place while being chased out of bounds just before the pass...that was awesome, I honestly thought Drew was going to take it all the way. I guess if the blockers were doing their jobs he may have?

Can you possibly explain why Sensabaugh's TD didn't count and how can a ball be blown dead if it's still moving? That was a sorry call!

Terri,

It appeared that Marcedes Lewis knocked the ball loose on Maurice Drew's fumble.

As for Sensabaugh's TD, Titans RB LenDale White was ruled down. So technically, he never fumbled to begin with. One of the officials' points of emphasis this year (to reduce blown calls on fumbles) is for the refs to be a little late with the whistle on plays that appear to be fumbles. That's why it took so long for the officials to blow the whistle, thus making it look as if Sensabaugh actually recovered the fumble. The refs want to be absolutely sure on those calls. But hey, they're human. So blown calls can still be expected.

Thanks, I wish I had remembered to set the DVR, it so looked like the ball was coming out as White was going down. I have it set this week, hopefully there will be a game to watch!

They are so reluctant to show replays in the stadium that it's frustrating. I don't understand why they think we would rather hold up our Winn Dixie Rewards cards rather than see a replay or 2 of a controversial play or a game changing play!?
