JAGUARS NOTEBOOK; Collins Expected to Start

Article excerpt

Byline: TANIA GANGULI

The Jaguars will likely face Titans quarterback Kerry Collins on Sunday and are preparing like it.

"Kerry warmed up last week," Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. "He moved around a little bit before the game. They decided to hold him, but there's no way he doesn't make this one."

Collins is recovering from a calf strain that kept him out of last Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

Collins played against the Jaguars in October's Monday night game in relief of Vince Young, who was injured in the first quarter. Young is now on injured reserve. Collins completed 11-of-16 passes and threw a touchdown.

"They are certainly playing better now than when we played them," Collins said of the Jaguars defense.

KAMPMAN HAS ACL SURGERY

Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman had surgery to replace his right anterior cruciate ligament on Monday in Green Bay. Kampman said previously that he would have the Packers team doctor, who performed Kampman's left ACL replacement surgery, do the right one as well.

Kampman is in Iowa with his family this week and plans to return to be with the Jaguars on Monday.

Kampman suffered the injury in a non-contact drill in practice Nov. 11 and was placed on injured reserve. At the time of his injury, he led the team with four sacks and 30 quarterback pressures.

JAGS LOSE TE CAUSSIN TO BILLS

The Buffalo Bills picked up tight end Mike Caussin off the Jaguars practice squad and will sign him today, according to his agent.

Caussin, an undrafted rookie from James Madison, didn't make the final cuts Sept. 4, then was signed to the Jaguars practice squad the next day.

In order to sign a player off another team's practice squad, a team must guarantee the player three weeks on the active roster.
