Amukamara was limited in practice on Wednesday but returned to field as a full participant Thursday, a sign that the veteran has pretty good odds of playing Sunday against the Colts. If he is cleared to play he could see his reps monitored, meaning Josh Johnson and Dwayne Gratz could potentially be the only reserved cornerbacks.
Amukamura said on Monday that he expects to play in this weekend's contest after missing the team's tilt with Baltimore, and his limited participation gives some optimism regarding the cornerback's status. Whether Amukamura will be active likely will be clearer based on his participation over the next few days.
Amukamara suffered a hamstring game in Week 1, and subsequently missed the following two games. It is unclear at this point in time if the Colts share the 27-year-old's optimism regarding his status for Sunday, but his workload will need to be monitored throughout the week.
Amukamara (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens
Amukamara's injury has now lingered for multiple weeks. Hamstrings are notorious for causing prolonged absences, and as long as Amukamara is out, the Jaguars will be thin at cornerback with only Josh Johnson and Dwayne Gratz serving as backups to starters Davon House and Jalen Ramsey.
Amukamara didn't practice at all this week after missing Week 2 with the same hamstring injury. It seems unlikely at this point that he plays in Week 3, which would open the door for Josh Johnson and Dwayne Gratz to see some extra snaps.
