JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Defensive tackle John Henderson jumped up and down at the goal line, shaking his head from side to side and shouting at the top of his lungs.
The Jacksonville Jaguars might have suffered a big loss in their big win Sunday.
"I don't know how serious that is," coach Jack Del Rio said. "I know it's serious enough that he couldn't return to the game. ... We're going to keep our fingers crossed and hope that's not a serious situation there."
Peterson sprained his right knee in the preseason, but was able to play in the opener. He leads the Jags with 42 tackles. He also has an interception and two quarterback pressures. Losing him would be another huge blow for a team already playing without defensive end Reggie Hayward.
Hayward, who led the team with 8½ sacks last year, ruptured his Achilles tendon in the opener against Dallas and had season-ending surgery.

|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Jets were simply overpowered by the Jaguars. Jacksonville's defense dug deep to shut down the Jets' running game until the contest essentially was over.
New York was held to 50 yards rushing in the first half while the Jaguars built a 28-0 lead. Chad Pennington had his worst game of the year, getting sacked four times and throwing three interceptions.
The Jaguars defense, against both the pass and the run, matched up well against the Jets. The corners blanketed New York's receivers, and the defensive line dominated the line of scrimmage.
The Jets hadn't lost by such a wide margin since falling 45-3 to Miami on Nov. 24, 1986. ... Jags DE Paul Spicer, whose sack ended Pennington's season a year ago, told the quarterback to "stay healthy" at midfield before the coin toss. ... Taylor had his first 100-yard game of the season. ... Jets RB Leon Washington ran 23 times for 101 yards, the rookie's first 100-yard game.
