The hits keep coming.
The Jaguars 2018 season has been mired by injuries and inconsistent play on both sides of the field.
The latest: starting center and team captain Brandon Linder will miss the remainder of the season with an unspecified knee injury. He will require surgery according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Linder injured his knee in the Jaguars week ten loss to the Colts. He missed nearly every Wednesday practice this season, while resting a knee injury that took place during the preseason, but hadn't missed a start in 2018.
The Jaguars have lost a bevy of key starters on offense this season. Starting WR Marqise Lee and LT Cam Robinson were both already lost to knee injuries earlier in the season. And starting RB Leonard Fournette missed nearly all of the first half of the season with a hamstring injury.
Now, the Jaguars will miss their most consistent offensive lineman for the remainder of the 2018 campaign. Linder, one of the highest paid centers in football, has missed 15 games during his four year career and will now miss the final seven games of his fifth season in the league.
Tyler Shatley, who has plenty of experience in the starting lineup, will take Linder's place. He started a combined eight games during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
The Jaguars are now 3-6 after a soul crushing loss to the Colts. This season has been a living nightmare for a team that rightfully expected to compete for a Super Bowl crown as recently as week four. Since then they've lost five straight games with no end to the misery in sight.
