JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will be without two starting offensive linemen Sunday.
That will mean a dramatically new look on the offensive front, a look that will include two players making their first NFL start on the interior of the line.
Center Brandon Linder, the Jaguars' starter in the first two games of the regular season, was ruled out with a knee sprain an hour and a half before kickoff of the team's game against the Baltimore Ravens at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m. Starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum (concussion) also will be inactive, having been ruled out on Friday.
Defensive end Jared Odrick (triceps) also was declared inactive Sunday along with cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring), tight end Ben Koyack (meniscus tear), quarterback Brandon Allen and defensive end Chris Smith.
Tyler Shatley will start at center with Chris Reed starting at left guard and Luke Joeckel starting at left tackle. Shatley and Reed will be making their first NFL starts. Joeckel started at left tackle for the Jaguars the past two seasons before starting the first two games of this season at left guard.
Tyson Alualu is expected to start for Odrick at strong-side defensive end with Jalen Ramsey starting at corner opposite Davon House.
