It's no easy task to make a team's initial 53-man roster, especially if they're stacked at the position you play. The Jacksonville Jaguars, for their part, had to move on from players they would've surely liked to keep, such as tight end Gerrit Prince.
But making the team was just one half of the equation. Several players who will remain on the roster the whole year won't see the field often and a few of them will get the healthy scratch label often. More specifically, these five Jaguars players are the most likely to be inactive on game day this upcoming season.
No. 5 Jaguars player most likely to be inactive on game day: Tyler Lacy, DL
The Jaguars will be counting on Tyler Lacy to become an important part of the defensive line rotation as the season progresses. However, they won't probably expect much from him early on. In fact, the former Oklahoma State Cowboy has already been ruled out for the opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
The silver lining is that Jacksonville isn't particularly thin in the defensive trenches. It's true that they won't have defensive end DaVon Hamilton for the first four games of the season while he recovers from a non-football injury. However, they have a couple of solid replacements to hold the fort in Adam Gotsis and Jeremiah Ledbetter.
Due to the presence of Gotsis and Ledbetter, the Jags don't have to rush Lacy onto the field, so don't be surprised if he's inactive a handful of times later in the season even if he's a full-go.
