JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars equipment manager Jimmy Luck had a tough task ahead of him to make sure the team had everything it needed during its week in London.

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran writes that the team previously shipped equipment overseas but also brought about 20,000 pounds of cargo on the team's charter flight. Some of the equipment will remain in London because the team is going to be playing there for three more seasons.

One of the biggest advantages to choosing to make a resort in Bagshot, England, their headquarters for this week is that it has on-site laundry facilities. When the team spent a week in California between the Oakland and Seattle games, the equipment staff had to use a Laundromat.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The Jaguars arrived in London on Tuesday without their coach and not knowing who their quarterback will be on Sunday. Those things will be fixed on Wednesday when Gus Bradley arrives from Minnesota, where he spent two days with his family in the wake of his father's death. Players say they will rally around him.

Some of the players spent their first day overseas shopping and meeting fans at a Nike-sponsored event.

According to Pro Football Focus, linebacker Geno Hayes had one of the league's worst performances on Sunday .

Here's a roundup of items from this blog: a quick scouting report on the San Francisco 49ers; the Jaguars continue to hold steady at No. 32 in the ESPN.com Power Rankings; the Jaguars top 10, the weekly ranking of the top playmakers from the previous game.
