ATLANTA, Ga. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to conclude the first preseason under new head coach Gus Bradley tonight when they take on the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.

The Jaguars will play some of their starters, including much of their first team offense. The first unit will not play a long time in the game but could get 10-15 plays.

Bradley will hold out some of his veteran starters like Maurice Jones-Drew and Brad Meester. There are several players that will be held out because of minor injuries. Bradley wants to make sure those players have time to heal for the season opener against Kansas City on Sept. 8.

[Special coverage: Jacksonville Jaguars]

The fourth preseason game comes down to players on the roster bubble trying to make the team. The Jaguars have a few open spots left and special teams could be a deciding factor tonight.

NFL teams have to trim their rosters to 53 players by Saturday.

We will have the EverBank PreGame Show at 7 p.m. on CBS47 followed by kickoff between the Falcons and Jaguars.
