Posluszny (groin) logged a full practice Friday and heads into Sunday's matchup against the Seahawks without an injury designation.
Posluszny was originally considered questionable to play in Week 14 after practicing on a limited basis Thursday due to his groin injury, but the issue no longer appears to be a factor. The Jaguars' starting middle linebacker logged a season-high 14 tackles last week against the Colts, so he'll look to feed off that performance on Sunday.
Posluszny (groin) was limited in practice Thursday.
The veteran linebacker appeared on the practice report after logging a full session on Wednesday. Posluszny is coming off his best performance of the season -- 14 tackles (10 solo) and 1.5 sacks Sunday against the Colts -- so his absence this week would be a major loss for the resurgent Jaguars defense. Look for more updates to come once Friday's injury report is released.
Posluszny tallied 14 tackles (10 solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's win over the Colts.
The effort from Posluszny is by far his best of the season, as he more than doubled his previous season-high tackle total and also broke into the sack column. The 33-year-old has put together a solid three-week stretch but remains a difficult to trust IDP-option given his numbers over the course of this season.
Posluszny will shift to strong-side linebacker this season to make room for Myles Jack at middle linebacker, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Posluszny has been a stronghold for Jacksonville at middle linebacker the past six seasons but will now make the change as the team ushers in a new era on defense. "It will be a change, but that's what's going to be best for the team so we're going to give it a shot," the 32-year-old linebacker said. The shift means Posluszny isn't likely to be involved in nickel packages, which would significantly cut down his playing time. Last season he registered 133 tackles, three pass deflections, 1.5 sacks and one interception through 16 games.
Posluszny is finishing the season on a solid note by posting back-to-back double-digit tackle totals after four games in which he had six or fewer tackles. He now has seven games with at least 10 tackles on the season, and although he struggled for a month, he remains a strong IDP option.
