It looks like injury is going to knock out Vernon Gholston for the game against the Jaguars.
Jets linebacker Vernon Gholston missed his second straight practice today with a hamstring injury -- which he suffered during Monday's walkthrough practice -- and it's highly unlikely he'll play against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Gholston, picked sixth overall in 2008, has been a disappointment on the field. He has no sacks in 24 career games and has been a non-factor in limited action on defense and special teams this season -- even though he started in the position vacated by linebacker Calvin Pace who was suspended for the first four games of the season.
He's quietly been getting a nice push lining up at tackle on obvious passing downs, but let's be honest. He wasn't making that big of a difference. Marques Murrell and Jamaal Westerman could see an increased workload as a result.
Would you like to see Gholston become a healthy scratch in favor of special teams contributors in the future?
