Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Bucs.

Posluszny did not practice all week with a high-ankle sprain. It would be very surprising if he played, but coach Gus Bradley suggested he will be a game-time decision. Posluszny has the fifth-most tackles in the league this season.
Oct 10 - 11:58 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

It's a week-to-week injury. Posluszny is all but guaranteed to miss Week 5. An every-down player, Posluszny is in the top five in tackles, a familiar position. Thurston Armbrister is the next man up on the depth chart.
Oct 5 - 1:11 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny left Week 4 against the Colts with an ankle injury.

The Jaguars are listing his return as questionable. Thurston Armbrister replaced Posluszny in base sets.
Oct 4 - 3:05 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny leads the NFL in tackles.

Posluszny set a single-game career high for tackles in Week 3, recording 18 to take his season mark to 34. He's not showing any signs of slowing down due to age or injury when looking at the box scores. Posluszny's owners in IDP leagues will be relishing a plum Week 4 matchup against the Colts.
Oct 2 - 4:56 PM

Paul Posluszny remains a three-down middle linebacker.

Posluszny will be 31 in October and has plenty of severe injuries on his resume. But the Jags aren't backing off, meaning he'll be a fine IDP target once again. Posluszny is averaging a gaudy 9.73 tackles per game in his last 38 outings.
Jun 29 - 9:00 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny hopes to be back to his normal playing weight by training camp.

Posluszny's weight dropped to 223 after undergoing chest surgery, but he's already back up to 235 and should be close to his normal weight of 242 by the time camp opens. He will be someone to target in IDP leagues this season.
Apr 19 - 8:39 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny's one-year extension amounts to a new three-year contract worth $15 million.

Prior to the extension, Posluszny was owed $15 million across the next two seasons. So he's essentially tacked on another year for free, although Posluszny can earn an additional $3 million via incentives. Still, it's a deal that helps the Jaguars' cap and makes Posluszny more reasonably priced. He's owed $5 million annually, whereas he was owed $7.5 million per year on his old deal.
Apr 16 - 2:53 PM

Jaguars signed MLB Paul Posluszny to a one-year extension through 2017.

He was previously under contract in 2015 and 2016 at base salaries of $7.45 million in each year. Heading into his age-31 season, Posluszny's on-field play has declined sharply in recent years, and he finished 2014 on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. It's possible the extension was done for salary cap purposes, but the Jags are in excellent financial condition. Either way, Posluszny is locked in as Jacksonville's starting middle linebacker and will be an IDP bounce-back target. He ranked second in the NFL in tackles (162) in 2013.
Apr 15 - 11:56 PM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny's roster spot appears to be safe.

Posluszny is way overpaid, but coach Gus Bradley heaped praise on him at the Owners' Meetings. "We have a guy like that with Poz, who has that humility and intelligence and that warrior spirit," Bradley said. "It's hard to find those three traits." Posluszny will rack up tackles at the MIKE spot.
Mar 25 - 2:43 PM

Coach Gus Bradley said he envisions MLB Paul Posluszny returning as a three-down player.

Posluszny is due $7.45M in 2015, way too much for an oft-injured and mediocre player at a low-value position. But at least on the surface, Bradley appears high on Poz as he comes off a torn pectoral. "He did such a good job for us," Bradley said. The Jaguars, armed with deep cap space, aren't under any pressure to move on.
Feb 20 - 8:57 AM

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny (pectoral) expects to be 100 percent for the start of OTAs.

"I’ll be 100 percent," Posluszny said. "That shouldn’t be an issue for us." Posluszny tore his pectoral in October and missed the final nine weeks of the season. He's the leader of the Jaguars' defense as a tackling machine in the middle, but Poz's play has gone downhill the past three seasons. Due a $7.45 million salary in 2015, Posluszny is a candidate to be cut this offseason.
Jan 27 - 8:13 PM

Jaguars placed MLB Paul Posluszny on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle, ending his season.

Fringe player J.T. Thomas will get the first shot at replacing Posluszny, who has been the Jaguars' leading tackler each of the past four seasons. Jeremiah George is next up behind Thomas. Posluszny is far from a star, but has been a reliable presence for a defense without much talent or valuable experience. Now on the wrong side of 30, Posluszny is signed through 2016, but it's quite possible his $7.45 million 2015 salary gets him cut in the offseason.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he expects MLB Paul Posluszny to be with the team in 2014.

Posluszny, 29, is the owner of the Jaguars' steepest salary cap figure for next season at $9.5 million. Money is not an issue in Jacksonville. 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.

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.
