Jags Tab New Starters on Right Tackle & Center, Starting S Johnathan Cyprien Clears Concussion Protocol

Jacksonville Jaguars HC Gus Bradley have made announced moves on offense, sorry not a QB, with their Center and Right Tackle position. With the Jags cutting former OT Cameron Bradfield, they have tabbed veteran OT Sam Young at the RT and sixth round rookie draft pick C Luke Bowanko to replace C Jacques McClendon who struggled in their first two games. 

Sam Young was originally a sixth round pick for the Dallas Cowboys in 2010 and spent time with the Buffalo Bills before signing with the Jags in 2013. 

Luke Bowanko was the 205th pick from Virginia in the last NFL Draft in May and has competed in the preseason for the Center job against McClendon and then-starter at the preseason, now costless agent Mike Brewster, struggling in the preseason with three snaps causing fumbles. 

The Jaguars get even more good news by announcing that second-year S Johnathan Cyprien has passed the NFL's mandatory concussion protocol and can participate in all team activities. 

Cyorien was the 33rd pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and was injured against the Philadelphia Eagles. This will be a huge gain for the Jacksonville Jaguars after allowing big plays against the Eagles and Washington, given up on Cyprien's side of the field, playing as Strong Safety. 

The Jags, who are 0-2, are going to face the Indianapolis Colts (0-2) in their home opener at EverBank Field, as well as their first divisonal game in a very vunerable-looking AFC South.
