Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was among the notable players listed on the final injury report for Week 8 at home against Miami. Gerhart was listed as probable after missing two straight games with a foot injury. Craig Loston (hamstring) and Luke Bowanko were also labeled probable.
Wide receiver Justin Blackmon , who hasn't practiced or played since 2013 after being suspended for the third time for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, is unlikely to return to the Jaguars according to GM David Caldwell, per ESPN.com.
Freeman won't return to Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers due to a hamstring injury, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Entering the contest tied for 19th in the NFL with 74 tackles, Freeman added eight more (six solo) to the ledger before his departure. Considering he was knocked out, the injury likely isn't something to be trifled with, meaning his status should be watched closely in the upcoming week of preparation.
Luck (abdomen/kidney) expects he'll be able to play again this season. "Yeah, very confident. Very confident I'll be able to return," he told TV 4 WTTV in Indianapolis.
Luck made the comments in his first media availability since suffering a lacerated kidney and torn abdominal muscle Nov. 8. Luck says he's picked up his activity, but gave no timetable for when he may be able to return to practice. While Luck's comments are encouraging, there's always a risk he could be shut down if the Colts fall out of the playoff race.
