Posluszny led the team with his 161 tackles and recorded three sacks and nine pass breakups. Per Pro Football Focus, he was below average against the run, pass, and as a pass rusher. IDP leaguers love Posluszny because he racks up tackles. Tue, Dec 31, 2013 09:55:00 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (concussion) has been cleared.

It's safe for IDP owners to get Posluszny back into lineups ahead of the Week 12 game against the Texans. He's averaging 9.7 tackles per game on the year with one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (questionable, concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Posluszny hasn't been cleared to return from his Week 10 concussion and will miss his first game since joining the Jaguars in 2011. Russell Allen will move inside to replace Posluszny, with John Lotulelei starting at weak-side linebacker.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Posluszny went down late in the win over the Titans. His inability to get cleared for practice Wednesday clouds his availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Posluszny is a far better IDP linebacker than real-life option, racking up 9.7 tackles per game this season with one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions. The Jags will move Russell Allen inside if Pos can't go.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny has been diagnosed with a concussion.

The Jaguars' middle linebacker suffered the injury in Sunday's win. Posluszny is struggling through another rough season, grading out as a bottom-five MIKE 'backer in Pro Football Focus' ratings. He's 50-50 for Sunday's game against Arizona.

The Florida Times Union suggests the Jaguars will pursue a linebacker in the draft who can be "groomed" to replace MLB Paul Posluszny.

As beat writer Ryan O'Halloran notes, Posluszny's cap number "explodes" in 2014 with a $7.45M salary. He is the NFL's seventh highest paid inside linebacker, but Pro Football Focus graded Posluszny 47th out of 53 qualifying ILBs last season. Posluszny also was not acquired by the current Jags regime.

Paul Posluszny set the Jaguars unofficial franchise record for tackles (231), breaking Hardy Nickerson's 2001 record of 230.

The Jacksonville coaching staff was liberal in their tackle count, also awarding WLB Russell Allen (201) the third-highest total in franchise history. The Florida Times-Union suggests there may have been some "fuzzy math" on Posluszny's total, as he broke Nickerson's record by one tackle. Posluszny graded out near the bottom of Pro Football Focus' ratings for 2012.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (shoulder surgery) was cleared for practice two weeks ago.

Poz was able to participate in offseason practices at less than 100 percent, so it's no surprise that he has since received the green light. Jacksonville's leading tackler expects to be "full-go" throughout training camp.
Thu, Jul 26, 2012 01:43:00 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (shoulder surgery) is participating in OTAs.

Posluszny said in early April he was still "several steps" away from 100 percent, so he's apparently made a lot of progress in the past month. Posluszny has a lengthy injury history, but was the Jaguars' leading tackler as he appeared in all 16 games for the first time since 2008 last season.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (shoulder surgery) believes he would be able to play were it the regular season, but admits he's still "several steps" away from being 100 percent.

Posluszny remains without a firm return date, but could still be cleared to participate in OTAs. Barring a setback, he will be ready for training camp. A 2007 second-round pick, Posluszny has appeared in all 16 games just twice in five seasons.
Mon, Apr 2, 2012 11:24:00 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (shoulder surgery) is "out of his sling."

Posluszny still doesn't have a concrete timetable for a return to football activities, but has a shot at being ready for OTAs. Barring a setback, the Jaguars' leading tackler from 2011 will be ready for training camp.
Sat, Feb 11, 2012 04:41:00 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny has "no doubt" that he will be ready for the start of the 2012 season after undergoing shoulder surgery on January 11.

Posluszny does not consider the procedure to be "major." After having his sling removed in a few weeks, he'll meet with doctors to get a timetable on his return. It sounds like he will be fine for training camp.
Thu, Jan 26, 2012 03:39:00 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Because the surgery took place so late in the process, Posluszny will likely be sidelined for all OTAs and questionable for the start of training camp. The Jaguars have retained defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, so Posluszny is already comfortable in the scheme. An elite run stopper, "Poz" was one of the primary reasons for Jacksonville's 2011 defensive turnaround.
Thu, Jan 26, 2012 01:44:00 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny suffered a Week 17 shoulder separation and may need offseason surgery.

Posluszny could be heard screaming on the field, and needed doctors to "push it back in the socket." Any surgery shouldn't affect his status for Week 1 of 2012, but it could land him on the active/PUP list to open training camp. Signed to a $42M blockbuster last July, Posluszny was a stud run stuffer during his first year with Jacksonville. He led the club with 119 tackles.
Tue, Jan 3, 2012 11:39:00 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Pusluszny left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a shoulder sprain.

Poz is officially questionable to return, though Stephen Franklin opened the second half as the starter. A success in his first year with the Jags, Posluszny entered Week 17 with 115 tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
