Jacksonville Jaguars with no major injury concerns ahead of Pittsburgh Steelers date
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone is not surprised to have a full-strength roster to choose from for Sunday’s AFC Division Playoff clash with the Steelers.
Marrone had only two players limited in their final full-scale practice on Friday – wide receiver Jaydon Mickens and linebacker Blair Brown – with starting middle linebacker Paul Posluszny getting through a full routine.

The 10-year veteran had been hurt before half-time in the Wildcard Round win over the Buffalo Bills and Marrone had initially been worried over his availability for the trip to Pennsylvania.
But Marrone says the hard work of his medical staff, plus the added adrenaline a playoff run provides, make for as healthy a roster as possible ahead of another huge date for the franchise.
“Winning tends to do that,” Marrone said. “But a lot of credit to the trainers, the weight coaches and the players making sure they’re taking care of their bodies.
“If you’re not pleased going into a playoff week you’ve got some serious issues. There’s focus. There’s energy. But I’m sure there are seven other teams that are doing the same thing. I really believe that.”
