Tony Boselli, the Jacksonville Jaguars' All-Pro offensive tackle,

was placed on the injured reserve list today, ending his fifth season

with the team. Boselli suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in

his right knee in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-7 win against the

Cincinnati Bengals. The victory gave the Jaguars their second

consecutive AFC Central division title as well as the top seed for

the AFC playoffs.

Boselli has been a starter for a team-record 71 of the 72 games in

which he has played the past five seasons. He has missed just eight

games because of injury, and had played in all six of the Jaguars'

postseason games the last three seasons. The 6-7, 319-pound

Boselli has been voted to each of the last four Pro Bowls after

allowing just nine sacks in his five-year career.

Boselli, 27, was the first player ever drafted by the Jaguars. He was

selected with the second choice overall in 1995 out of Southern

California. Boselli's roster spot is expected to be filled with a roster

move on Wednesday.
