No. 4 Jaguars player who must stand out vs. the Falcons: Chad Muma, LB
Linebacker Devin Lloyd suffered a thumb injury against the Texans. He underwent testing Monday and didn't practice Wednesday. Head coach Doug Pederson says Lloyd's injury is more severe than it was originally believed, so won't be traveling with the team to London. This means he'll potentially miss the next two games.
Chad Muma will be taking Lloyd's place in the starting lineup. In fact, the former filled in for the latter when he exited the Houston game. This season, Muma has appeared in 20 defensive snaps, with 19 of them coming against the Texans.
Last year, Muma started a few games before suffering an ankle injury in Week 13. He'll get another opportunity to showcase his talent against the Falcons. Doug Pederson, for his part, believes the former Wyoming Cowboy will do a good job.
No. 3 Jaguars player who must stand out vs. the Falcons: Anton Harrison
Anton Harrison struggled the first two games of the 2023 season but played much better against the Texans. In fact, it was the rookie right tackle's best game so far. Although he had a hard time containing defensive end Will Anderson Jr., he performed much better in the running game. His 71.1 Pro Football Focus grade in Week 3 is the best he's had this year.
Now, Harrison must build on last week and prove the Jaguars made the right decision when they drafted him 27th overall earlier this year.
