JACKSONVILLE -- Wide receiver Jerry Porter has been designated as the Jaguars third quarterback for today's game against the Bills.
The move appears odd, but actually makes sense as smart roster manipulation.
In such a scenario, Porter could enter the game as the quarterback.
After a play, he'd likely flip spots with Matt Jones, the receiver who was a quarterback at Arkansas. With Dennis Northcutt's back issues, Jack Del Rio is simply putting himself in position to have access to the most players possible should he suffer injuries at quarterback and receiver.
And after watching three offensive linemen go down last week -- two of them are now out for the season -- such crazy scenarios don't seem so crazy any more.
For the Bills, Jason Peters will start at left tackle after a full week of practice following a holdout that did not produce a new deal. Langston Walker shifts to right tackle and Kirk Chambers moves to the bench.
