JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without two defensive starters for Sunday's season finale at Indianapolis.
Linebacker Geno Hayes (knee) will miss his second straight game and cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), who has started seven consecutive games, will miss the contest against the Colts.
Hayes had started all 14 of the Jaguars' games prior to last Sunday's matchup with Tennessee. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Friday that Hayes will have his knee scoped.
The coach says, "We were trying to get him to come back but there's too much going on and that's the best thing for him."
Bradley indicated that neither Hayes nor Gratz would be placed on IR.
Gratz suffered an ankle injury in last Sunday's game against Tennessee.
