Jaguars convert ball boys to wide receivers in practice this week

Jaguars have been struggling this year at the wide receiver position, but they have turned to their ball boys to help out theor thord string quarterback. A rash of injuries coupled with the suspension of Justin Blackmon have left Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders as the Jaguars’ only active, healthy receivers for Sunday’s game against the Colts.

That has forced Jacksonville’s two practice squad wideouts, Tobias Palmer and Jeremy Ebert, to assume more prominent roles, leaving the team with a dearth of bodies at practice.

ESPN.com’s Michael DiRocco reports that the Jaguars have been using ball boys, equipment assistants and practice squad quarterback Matt Scott as wide receivers on the scout team during practice this week.

If a ball boy is signed soon, don’t be surprised, the Jaguars might get better production from him than their current wide outs.
