Defensive snaps: Extra work for Miller

By Michael DiRocco

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A look at snaps played by Jacksonville Jaguars defenders in Sunday’s 20-16 loss to Tennessee, while analyzing what it means:

S Johnathan Cyprien: 73 of 73

LB Paul Posluszny: 72 of 73

CB Alan Ball: 71 of 73

DT Sen'Derrick Marks: 64 of 73

LB J.T. Thomas: 60 of 73

CB Will Blackmon: 56 of 73

DE Tyson Alualu: 53: of 73

DE Jason Babin: 49 of 73

DE Andre Branch: 42 of 73

S Josh Evans: 39 of 73

S Winston Guy: 36 of 73

DT Jordan Miller: 35 of 73

LB LaRoy Reynolds: 31 of 73

CB Mike Harris: 24 of 73

LB John Lotulelei: 23 of 73

DT Abry Jones: 23 of 73

CB Dwayne Gratz: 20 of 73

DE Ryan Davis: 16 of 73

DT Brandon Deaderick: 13 of 73

S Chris Prosinski: 2 of 73

LB Nate Stupar: 1 of 73

Analysis: Miller was playing in his first game this season and played nearly half the snaps because Deaderick dislocated his right elbow. A safe estimate on the number of snaps he would have played had Deaderick not gotten hurt: 10-15. ... Posluszny was off the field for only one play, because he was receiving stitches in his chin. ... Evans and Guy split the playing time at free safety. It’ll be an interesting battle between the two during the offseason to see who can win the starting job. ... Thomas and Lotulelei started alongside Posluszny because of injuries to Geno Hayes (knee) and Russell Allen (concussion). ... Blackmon was forced into more snaps because Gratz went out with an ankle injury. Gratz’s status for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis is uncertain.
