The Jacksonville Jaguars wrapped up the preseason with a 24-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. With roster cut day looming, the Jaguars still have a few difficult decisions to make for their final roster. With that being said, here are 10 players who won't make the final cut.

Before Thursday night's game, cornerback Rashaad Reynolds appeared to have a good shot at making the final roster. However, the undrafted rookie out of Oregon State suffered a broken hand against the Falcons and is now likely headed for injured reserve.

The Jaguars signed Tandon Doss this offseason to compete for a spot at punt returner and wide receiver. However, Doss suffered an ankle injury early in training camp and was never able to get on track. He returned in Thursday's game against Atlanta but quickly re-injured the ankle and will now likely head to injured reserve, much to the chagrin of receiver Mike Brown.

Stephen Morris has been competing with Ricky Stanzi for the third quarterback spot. The fact of the matter is Morris did not show anything in the preseason to warrant overtaking Stanzi, and on top of that, the Jaguars may only keep two quarterbacks on the active roster anyway.

Sherrod Martin had been competing with Josh Evans and Chris Prosinski for a backup safety spot. Evans played well in the preseason, and with the team viewing Prosinski as a core special teams player, Martin likely won't survive the final cut.

Outside linebacker J.T. Thomas has bounced back nicely from an injury he suffered early in training camp and performed well against the Detroit Lions last week in his first extensive action at middle linebacker. His versatility could serve him well come cut time, but his primary competition, Nate Stupar, has played well all preseason and could have the edge over Thomas for the sixth linebacker spot.

Kerry Taylor was a solid addition for the Jaguars last season, but the team has revamped the wide receiver position since then, causing Taylor to plummet down the depth chart. Taylor's fate was likely sealed after he dropped a pass for a potential two-point conversion last week against the Lions.

At 6-foot-5 and 258 pounds, Gerald Rivers has all the measurables the Jaguars are looking for out of the LEO position. However, the second-year defensive end just has not shown enough on the field this preseason to beat out the likes of Andre Branch, Ryan Davis and Chris Smith.

Drew Nowak has been fairly successful in transitioning from a defensive tackle in college at Western Michigan to an offensive guard in the NFL. However, like plenty of other players on this list, Nowak is facing a numbers crunch to make the team. The Jaguars' offensive line is a bit banged up at the moment so there is still a chance for the second-year pro to stick.

2. Sam Young, T

The Jaguars are banged up along the offensive line, so Sam Young could stick as an extra lineman until the team gets healthier. However, the team likes undrafted free agent Josh Wells, and if he is healthy he would have the edge as the backup offensive tackle over Young.

Ricky Stanzi has not played particularly well in the preseason, although he played solid in Thursday's game against Atlanta. With rookie Blake Bortles playing so well it alleviates the need for the Jaguars to keep three quarterbacks on the active roster. However, Stanzi is a good candidate to stick on the practice squad.
