Vernon Gholston Likely Out Sunday

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?
