No drastic changesby Jags

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — It would be understandable if the Jacksonville Jaguars made at least a few changes.

They’re winless through three games, losing each by double digits, and have scored a league-low 28 points.

They’ve been outscored 55-5 in the first half, have no running game to speak of, have allowed 15 sacks and been gouged on the ground.

Coach Gus Bradley certainly could justify just about any move. Instead, he’s looking for little tweaks that could make a big difference.

He says, “I don’t think you’ll see any drastic changes, but I think you might see some subtle changes. We want to be careful what message we send them.”

The Jaguars are counting on the return of quarterback Blaine Gabbert (hand) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf).
