Williams sidelined for Jaguars; Porter practices

It was a good news, bad news scenario at the wide receiver position for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday. Jerry Porter, who returned to practice for the first time in nearly three months on Monday, participated in a full session as he recovers from a hamstring injury. The bad news was that Reggie Williams sat out due to a hamstring injury of his own, and might not be ready for the season opener.

Williams, who sat out much of training camp and part of the preseason after having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, was expected to be in the starting lineup Sunday at Tennessee. But he spent Wednesday’s practice riding a stationary bike and working with team trainers.

Without Porter and Williams in the opener, the Jaguars would have Matt Jones, Dennis Northcutt, Troy Williamson and Mike Walker at receiver.

Here’s a look at the Jaguars’ depth chart.
