Fitting in

Posted Oct 22, 2011

Sims-Walker will play role for Jaguars against Ravens.

Mike Sims-Walker said he is ready to play.

It’s a good thing, because according to Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio, the veteran wide receiver is going to get his chance.

Sims-Walker, who re-signed with the Jaguars after his release from the St. Louis Rams this week, will get an opportunity to play a significant role in the offense Monday, Del Rio said Saturday.

“He’s pretty much fit right back in,” Del Rio said Saturday as the Jaguars (1-5) prepared to play the Baltimore Ravens (1-4) at EverBank Field Monday at 8:30 p.m.

“The quarterbacks have confidence in him. The coaches have confidence in him. I think he’ll come in here and pick up where he left off. He’ll have a chance to make some plays for us.”

Sims-Walker, who played for the Jaguars from 2007-10, signed with the Rams as a free agent in August. He was released Monday and re-signed with the Jaguars Wednesday.

Sims-Walker has 133 career receptions for 1,787 yards with 14 touchdowns, with all of the touchdowns coming with the Jaguars. He led the Jaguars in 2009 with a career-high 63 receptions for 869 yards and seven touchdowns and finished last season with 43 receptions for 562 yards and seven touchdowns.

He caught 11 passes for 149 yards in four games with the Rams.

“I’m ready to be up,” Sims-Walker said. “I’m no stranger around here. I’m just so happy to be back. I keep smiling. People are looking at me saying, ‘Man, you didn’t smile this much in four years.’ I’ve been in this offense my whole career, so I pretty much know what’s going on – just little things that they’ve changed that I have to get accustomed to, but for the most part I feel comfortable.”

Also for the Jaguars:                                                                                   

*Safety Courtney Greene (hamstring) did not practice for a third consecutive day Saturday and has been ruled out.

*Offensive tackle/guard Eben Britton (back) did not practice for a third consecutive day and is listed as doubtful. Del Rio said he is “extremely doubtful,” but could be available in an emergency.

*Guard/center Jason Spitz (quadriceps) practiced limited for a third consecutive day and is listed as questionable.

*The following players are listed as probable: defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (knee), cornerback Derek Cox (groin), safety Dawan Landry (thigh), offensive tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder), wide receiver Kassim Osgood(hamstring), running back Montell Owens (knee), guard Will Rackley (knee), linebacker Clint Session (elbow) and offensive tackle Guy Whimper (hip). All of the players listed as probable worked full Friday and Saturday except Landry, who was limi
