Here we are deep in the fantasy playoffs and the temperatures outside are dropping. In bad weather, down the stretch, it a team's #offensiveline becomes more important to the offense than at any other point that season.
There's plenty of news this week for the big men, and it's not all disrespectful.
Let's get after it!
Right tackle Jermey Parnell returned on Sunday and played all offensive snaps during Jacksonville's home win over Indianapolis. Parnell had missed the three prior games with a knee injury and his return is good news. Parnell is one of the better overall right tackles in the league. Parnell's return sent swing tackle Josh Wells to the bench as the game began. Wells did eventually play during the contest as starting left tackle Cam Robinson was briefly forced from the game with an ankle injury. Robinson was able to return during the game and he is not listed on this week's injury report. Left guard Chris Reed continues to do a solid job in place of injured Patrick Omameh, who is fighting an upper leg injury. Overall, this Jaguars' line is a run-first power unit, and the return of their starting right tackle (coupled with the mounting injuries around the league) have elevated them to top-tier status.
