Jack Del Rio Sent Mike Peterson Home for Talking Back

The Jaguars appear to be coming apart at the seams. A playoff team a year ago, and a favorite to return to the postseason in 2008, Jacksonville has bumbled their way through the first two months.

An 0-2 start, and back-to-back losses to the Browns and Bengals have them staring at 3-5, and head coach Jack Del Rio doesn't feel some players are adequately grieving the losses. For example, raucous laughter in the locker room following a loss to Cincinnati? Yeah, don't do that. Also unacceptable: talking back.

Which is apparently what got linebacker Mike Petersonsent home from practice earlier this week:

Del Rio tossed Peterson out of the meeting room on Wednesday after Peterson replied when Del Rio admonished him for flexing his muscles after a sack in Cincinnati when the team was behind 21-3.

Peterson replied that he usually does that when he makes a big play and was trying to bring energy to the team. Peterson wasn't allowed to return to the team Thursday and was sent home again.
