Inactive for Jaguars today: RB Montell Owens, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, DE D’Anthony Smith, S Dwight Lowery, DT Jeris Pendleton, CB Derek Cox, WR Laurent Robinson

Game Notes:

Packers roster takes a hit today in the defensive backfield and the wide receivers corps. Youth shall be served…

Today’s captains are WR James Jones, LB Erik Walden and LS Brett Goode.

Wow – 44% of #Jaguars offense since 2010 has been from Maurice Jones Drew


Mike McCarthy Pregame Show on 620 WTMJ:


Noon game at home: Love it. Get up early, smells like football. ..

Woodson loss: We’re talking about someone who has been an impact player every year here. When you lose a guy like Charles, you have to use the next group of players to their strengths. I’m looking for our defense to generate turnovers, create fumbles.

Replacing Woodson: Charles plays in a lot of roles. We’ll individuals focus more on ione position in as opposed to charles playing one, tow three, sometime four

Jennings, surgery: We’re all hopeful it’s going to go well. They don’t think it’s a major issue.

Cobb: He’s a playmaker and gives us versatility. He doesn’t just line up in one spot.

Rodgers last 2 weeks: He’s played very well. I think we all got spoiled by last year. There’s a lot of things we probably wouldn’t do if we didn’t have Aaron Rodgers.

Maurice Jones Drew: He’s a fun player to watch – glad I’m not watchng him today. Dynamic, unique guy you can build an offense around

Gabbert:  First thing I’ve always been impressed with is his ability to throw the football. He’s taken big steps from year one to two. He’s in a system that plays to favorable down and distance. Much improved player.

Jaguars: Fundamentally sound team. It’s going to be  challenge.  We look for their DBs to challenge our receivers. This  game will be a lot more competitive than people realize.

Jordy out: Pre-game workout went very well, but then going back out on the field later, he just didn’t feel quite ready.
