Pasztor likely out for season


JACKSONVILLE – Austin Pasztor appears to be done for the year.

Pasztor, the Jaguars' starting right tackle, sustained a ruptured hamstring in the victory over the New York Giants Sunday. The Jaguars announced Monday he likely will miss the rest of the season.

Pasztor, a second-year veteran who missed the first four games of the season with a fractured hand, sustained the hamstring injury in the first half against the Giants. He has started 23 games for the Jaguars, including 20 games at right tackle the past two seasons.

Rookie free agent Josh Wells replaced Pasztor for the remainder of the game Sunday, but Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said Monday Sam Young also could be a possibility at the position.

Wells can also play left tackle, and Bradley said Wells was active Sunday because of that versatility. Young, a five-year veteran, has been inactive the last six games, but started two games for Pasztor earlier in the season following the release of Cameron Bradfield.

"We'll take a look at it," Bradley said. "Wells did a pretty good job when he stepped in. Sam does a good job at right tackle, so we'll talk more about that. But it will be one of those two."
