Jaguars go light at receiver

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Jaguars spent a lot of resources on receivers in the offseason.

Only one of them is playing in the team’s season opener.

Torry Holt is starting opposite holdover Troy Williamson, with Mike Sims-Walker and Nate Hughes also set to play.

Among the inactives: rookies receivers Mike Thomas and Jarett Dillard.

That suggests, unsurprisingly, that Jacksonville’s going to run the ball and use Maurice Jones-Drew and Marcedes Lewis in the passing game.

I’m not expecting a lot of empty backfield, four-wide formations. And if a receiver is hurt, the rotation will be thin.

Key matchup in this department: Williamson against Colts rookie corner Jerraud Powers, who gets the start while Marlin Jackson eases back into action working as the nickel.
