Jags starting Taylor for injured Britton

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars held out a bit of hope that one of two key questionable starters would be in the lineup today.

But both left guard Eben Britton (ankle) and cornerback Derek Cox (hamstring) are out.

And the spotlight falls today on Herb Taylor, who is a bit of a surprise replacement for Britton after Mike Brewster stepped into the spot last week when Britton got hurt. Apparently he didn’t do sufficient work.

Taylor was added as a street free agent Monday. He was previously with the Green Bay Packers.

I’d expect Houston’s front to look for ways to attack him as they try to find avenues to Blaine Gabbert.
