The Jacksonville Jaguars have given up some big conversions this season. They are the sort of plays that usually don’t happen unless the pass rush is not effective on the snap in question.
We start to find out Sunday in Pittsburgh if defensive end Aaron Kampman can still be a difference-maker for the Jags in such situations.
Tania Ganguli of the Times-Union reports than Kampman will play for the first time this season on Sunday. He is coming off his second season in a row that was ended by a torn ACL, and he’ll be on the field for 15 or 20 snaps.
He’s a leader who knows how to rush the quarterback. Perhaps he can provide a jolt in a game even the many optimistic Jacksonville fans are having trouble picturing their team winning.
Linebacker Clint Session, meanwhile, has been ruled out with an elbow issue.
