    It's funny how things work out sometimes.

    Running back Fred Taylor might not be with the Jacksonville Jaguars next year, and a thumb injury meant he didn't have a chance to head into a finale with any sentimental feelings about what might have been his last game with the franchise.

    Meanwhile, linebacker Mike Peterson was presumed finished after a demotion early this season, playing out the final months of his contract in whatever role he was given.

    Now a groin injury to Daryl Smith means he won't play Thursday night in Jacksonville against Indianapolis. His fill-in will be Peterson.

    The game is on the NFL Network, and while plenty of fans don't get the channel, many league insiders do.

    I feel certain Peterson knows they'll be watching and will be looking to seize the opportunity as a bit of a showcase. The Jaguars may be finished with him, but he'll offer a look to 31 other potential employers.

    He'll be in the Raiders starting lineup this time next year. Funny how things work out sometimes.
