JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have benched two more starters.

Coach Gus Bradley made the moves Wednesday, sitting down safety Winston Guy and linebacker LaRoy Reynolds in favor of backups Josh Evans and J.T. Thomas. Evans and Thomas will start Sunday at San Diego (2-1).

Evans started 11 games as a rookie last year, but lost his job to Guy after injuring a shoulder. Thomas, a fourth-year pro, started two games last season.

The defense allowed 529 yards and 44 points against Indianapolis on Sunday, giving up three touchdowns and three field goals in the first half.

It’s the second straight week the Jaguars (0-3) have benched starters. Bradley sat down center Jacques McClendon and right tackle Cam Bradfield after a Week 2 loss at Washington.
