The Jacksonville youth movement continues to plow full steam ahead. The Jaguars will place cornerback Tramaine Brock on injured reserve and end his season, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic (Twitter link).
The long-time veteran was one of very few older players on the hollowed-out roster. The Jags have completely stripped down the team, especially the defense, over the past year. The secondary is going to look completely unrecognizable after former starters Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye were both traded within the last year.
Jacksonville is expected to start rookie first-round pick C.J. Henderson and 24-year-old Tre Herndon on the outside. They’re being thrown into the fire without much help around them. Brock has bounced around the league in recent years, spending time with six different teams over the past four seasons.
The 2010 UDFA spent the first seven years of his career in San Francisco, becoming a reliable starter with the 49ers and landing a couple of decent paydays. He started seven games with the Cardinals last year and four with the Titans, also starting during Tennessee’s run to the AFC Championship Game. He turned 32 last month.
