Injuries. The theme of this NFL preseason, so far, has been injuries. Big-time injuries, unexpected injuries, injuries that change the entire landscape of your team. Both the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants have already seen their fair share of early injuries, particularly on the defensive side of the ball, and now both squads will look to establish some consistency in a week two preseason matchup.
The Jaguars lost No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler before he even played a snap this year, taking away a major factor in a pass rush that desperately needed a spark. New York’s secondary meanwhile, has been decimated by injuries over the past few seasons and, this year, seems no different. Cornerback Prince Amukamara didn’t even play in Cincinnati while second-round pick Landon Collins and fifth-rounder Mykkele Thompson were both injured against the Bengals. The Giants signed veteran safety Brandon Merriweather earlier this week to fill out the roster.
Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast locally in Jacksonville on WJXT 4 and NBC 4 in New York. Click here for a full TV schedule. Don’t worry if you can’t find a TV either. Here’s how to watch the game online:
