Jaguars Right Tackle Austin Pasztor Breaks Hand in Preseason Game
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are having to shuffle their offensive line.
Right tackle Austin Pasztor says he broke his hand in Thursday night’s preseason loss at Chicago. Pasztor says he fractured the fourth metatarsal in his right hand and has no timetable for his return.
Cam Bradfield is expected to start in Pasztor’s place next week when the Jaguars play at Detroit.
Even before Pasztor’s injury, Jacksonville’s line was unsettled. Center Mike Brewster has struggled in the preseason, prompting coaches to rotate four players at the key position against the Bears. Right guard remains an open competition, too, with Jacques McClendon and rookie Brandon Linder, a third-round draft pick from Miami, vying for a starting job.
