Blake Bortles was largely ineffective despite a career

His offensive line was the biggest problem.The Jacksonville Jaguars failed to give Bortles enough time or protection in a 30-14 loss at the Chiefs on Sunday. Bortles was sacked five times Cedric Ogbuehi Jerseys 2019 , fumbling once, and hurried way more often.According to Pro Football Focus, Jacksonville’s line allowed 24 total quarterback pressures 鈥?seven more than any other NFL team in Week 5.“We take an immense amount of pride in our work,” backup left tackle Josh Walker said Monday. “That’s going to be the goal of our group this week: to be more determined to be better and do a better job in protecting Blake. We’ve got to keep him clean. That’s our job and that’s what we’re going to do.“We’re fine. We’re not worried about things. We’re going to fix things.”The Jaguars (3-2) might have to make some roster changes to find help.Left tackle Josh Wells has a groin injury that could cause him to miss Sunday’s game at Dallas (2-3), and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed to injured reserve and will have core muscle surgery.Coach Doug Marrone said Wells is “week to week” and Seferian-Jenkins is expected to return later in the year.Running back Corey Grant (foot) also is done for the season, joining Leonard Fournette on the sideline. Fournette is expected to miss his fourth game of the season because of a sprained right hamstring.The Jaguars are planning to sign a running back and likely will do the same at left tackle.“When you add and you’re missing some key players, you have to play to the strengths of what they can do,” Marrone said. “It is a challenge for us Black Chris Conley Jerseys , but there are teams that go through those same challenges. It’s going to be on us as coaches to do a good job of putting in the right plays, going to the right people and being able to go and execute it.”The O-line was Jacksonville’s weak link last year, failing to create holes for Fournette in the second half of the season.The Jags thought signing All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell to a five-year, $66.5 million contract in free agency would solidify the front. But Norwell has been average, at best, while playing alongside three different left tackles: Cam Robinson, Wells and Walker. Robinson is out for the season with a knee injury.“We need to trust in each other,” Wells said. “The expectation level is still going to remain high. We need to put our head down and go back to work.”The Jaguars essentially abandoned the running game after falling behind 20-0 late in the second quarter. That put a lot of pressure on Bortles and even more stress on the line Chris Conley Jerseys 2019 , which really struggled against speedy linebacker Dee Ford.Bortles completed 33 of 61 passes, with one touchdown and four interceptions.“Everyone is in a tough situation,” Marrone said. “You turn around the next day (and) you want to run the football. Looking back, maybe we started throwing it a little too early. Maybe we just were pressing too much early. … You’re always going to look at that and you’re not going to sit here and say that, ‘Hey, we’re a team that wants to throw the ball 60-something times.'”___ Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said he is willing to restructure his contract to create more cap space for the team, according to John Reid of Jacksonville.com.鈥矷 think it’s..."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Jaguars Free Agency 2016Jaguars Film RoomNFL DraftJaguars Injury NewsLatest NewsCalais Campbell talking with Jaguars about contract restructureNew,17commentsESTShareTweetShareShareCalais Campbell talking with Jaguars about contract restructureJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsJacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said he is willing to restructure his contract to create more cap space for the team Black A. J. Cann Jerseys , according to John Reid of Jacksonville.com.鈥矷 think it’s more with restructuring with an extension,鈥?Campbell said after Wednesday’s Pro Bowl. 鈥砊hat’s the only way to do it and that’s something that was talked about that could possibly happen.鈥矯ampbell signed a four-year, $60 million free agent contract in 2017 and will count $14.5 million against the Jaguars’ salary cap in 2019. That’s the fifth highest on the team. If he’s able to restructure and give the team even a little bit more wiggle room it could help them immensely.After two seasons of double-digit sacks, including an All-Pro year of 14.5 sacks in 2017 and a Pro Bowl nod after 10.5 sacks in 2018, Campbell doesn’t have to restructure his contract. He’s definitely lived up to it. But if he restructures it would go a long way towards the team taking advantage of a window that is closing fast on this defense.
