Covering the impact of the coronavirus on the world of sport
The Jacksonville Jaguars adopt a rather bold kicker strategy for their Week 6 game with the Detroit Lions as Doug Marrone’s crew hand over the kick to Jon Brown Why is Brown a bold move of the Jags, you ask? Well, the 27-year-old has no regular season experience to attempt a basket It’s true Brown, who has never thrown a meaningful basket in his career, will now be lining up for the Jags as they will face off against Detroit
Brown first played football in Kentucky and eventually transferred to Louisville to begin his college football career, but only handled the Cardinals kickoffs In the NFL, he spent a few preseason with the Cincinnati Bengals and performed well.In the 2018 preseason, Brown connected on his six field goal attempts with a as far as 55 yards. He also converted five of his six extra point attempts
This is a « desperate time call for desperate measures » scenario for Jacksonville, who is starting his fifth kicker in as many weeks after a mind-boggling amount of injuries hit the position It all stems from the ‘Origin of veteran kicker Josh Lambo who still suffers from a hip injury he sustained in week 2 and kept him in the injured reserve Brandon Wright was raised from the practice squad following Lambo’s injury, but he injured his groin in the third week After those two injuries, the team signed Stephen Hauschka and Aldrick Rosas, but each of those two kickers is also banged and can no longer kick for Jacksonville.
Once Brown lines up to attempt a kick on Sunday, the Jaguars will become the first team in NFL history to have a different player attempt a basket or a PAT in five straight games
