JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Mike Brown, Kerry Taylor and Ace Sanders don't have much experience but they've become the backbone of the Jaguars' passing offense.

They've really had no choice because of the suspension of Justin Blackmon and the season-ending injuries to Cecil Shorts and Stephen Burton, but they've handled being thrust into that role pretty well, writes the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon.

"The receiving corps has been banged-up all year but they've done a great job," quarterback Chad Henne said.

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

The Jaguars' streak of rushing for 100 yards was snapped on Sunday because the Jaguars didn't have any explosive runs, writes the T-U's Ryan O'Halloran.

The Jaguars made several roster moves on Monday, including signing defensive tackle Kyle Love, who was with the team in training camp. The latest group of injuries, which includes defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick's dislocated elbow, has really changed the complexion of the starting lineup since the beginning of the season.

The Jaguars currently have the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft with one week remaining in the regular season.
