Westbrook sits out third preseason game with injury

Going into Tampa Bay’s third preseason game, Dede Westbrook led the NFL in receiving yards. At the end of the game, his yard total did not change. That would be because the standout receiver had been nursing what was described as a lower body injury and was held out without any prior notice. Westbrook recently got a second opinion and could be returning back to practice and game action soon. Jacksonville will travel to Atlanta on Friday for a 6:00 p.m kickoff. That is the final preseason game of the year before the Jaguars travel to Houston on September 10 for the regular season opener.
