JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A look at snaps played by Jacksonville Jaguars defenders in Sunday’s 13-6 victory over Houston, while analyzing what it means:

S Johnathan Cyprien: 57 of 57

CB Dwayne Gratz: 57 of 57

LB Paul Posluszny: 57 of 57

CB Alan Ball: 57 of 57

DT Sen'Derrick Marks: 50 of 57

LB Geno Hayes: 46 of 57

LB Russell Allen: 41 of 57

DE Jason Babin: 41 of 57

S Josh Evans: 38 of 57

DE Andre Branch: 37 of 57

DE Tyson Alualu: 37 of 57

DT Roy Miller: 36 of 57

CB Mike Harris: 23 of 57

S Winston Guy: 19 of 57

DE Ryan Davis: 17 of 57

DT Brandon Deaderick: 10 of 57

LB J.T. Thomas: 2 of 57

LB John Lotulelei: 2 of 57

Analysis: Davis, playing in only his second game of the season, got extended playing time because defensive end Jeremy Mincey didn't travel with the team for violating a team rule. … Posluszny returned to full action after missing the Arizona game with a concussion. He led the team in tackles with 14 and knocked down one pass. He also blitzed up the middle several times because the Jaguars wanted to get pressure in Case Keenum’s face. … Evans’ 38 snaps were the fewest he’s played since he was forced into the starting lineup in Week 3 because of Dwight Lowery’s concussion. He and Guy are rotating at safety. … Cornerback Will Blackmon’s absence because of a shoulder injury got Harris on the field for his most playing time since the bye. It also was the reason Gratz and Ball played every snap.
