The only players who are expected to be starters who will play in the game are tight end Geoff Swaim, right guard A.J. Cann and linebacker Leon Jacobs.
The decision means that Nick Foles will have to wait at least a week to make his Jaguars preseason debut. The Jaguars will host Foles' old team, the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 15 at TIAA Bank Stadium.
