01/26/17DLMichael BennettCalfQUESTIONABLEBennett spent the 2016 season on the injured reserve due to a calf injury.

Bennett's season was marred by injuries from the beginning. He dealt with a hip ailment in the preseason before suffering a calf injury that rendered him out for the entirety of Jacksonville's 2016 campaign. The injured reserve designation ensures that Bennett will stay with the Jaguars for at least one more year, as he will try to make an impact on a front seven that saw great contributions from defensive tackles Malik Jackson and Sen'Derrick Marks in 2016.

01/26/17DBAaron ColvinAnkleQUESTIONABLEColvin (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Colvin injured his ankle last week and the team likely determined he wouldn't be able to play in the next two weeks so they placed him on IR to open up a roster spot. His injury isn't expected to linger long into the offseason or limit him come time for offseason activities.

01/26/17WRRashad GreeneAchillesQUESTIONABLEGreene (Achilles) may have to compete for a roster spot, Firstcoastnews.com reports.

The 2015 fifth-round selection has played in 17 games through two seasons, catching 24 of 43 targets for a measly 125 yards (5.2 YPR) and a a pair of touchdowns. Coming off a season-ending injury and competing for a job in a deep receiving corps, Greene may need to earn his roster spot as a return specialist.

01/26/17TEMarcedes LewisCalfQUESTIONABLEThe Jaguars may use a high draft pick on a tight end to join Lewis (calf), Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Coming off an injury-shortened season, Lewis moved to the top of the depth chart when Jacksonville traded Julius Thomas to the Dolphins. A tight end group comprised of Lewis, Koyack and Sterling is far from exciting, and it's no secret the upcoming draft is strong at the position. Even if he were to enter the season atop Jacksonville's depth chart, Lewis likely would just be an ancillary piece in the passing game. He'll turn 33 in May, after missing five or more games in three of the past four seasons. The Jaguars may ultimately release Lewis, or else ask him to take a major pay cut as he enters the second season of a three-year, $12 million deal.

01/26/17DLRoy MillerAchillesQUESTIONABLEMiller (Achilles) was released by the Jaguars on Sunday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Miller spent a majority of the 2016 season on IR after tearing his Achilles tendon during the Jaguars' sixth game of the year. At this point, he figures to be replaced by either Sheldon Day, Abry Jones or Louis Nix at defensive tackle.

01/26/17DLJared OdrickShoulderQUESTIONABLEOdrick (shoulder) has drawn interest from the Giants, Seahawks and Eagles, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

Odrick was released by the Jaguars in February after completing just two seasons of a five-year, $42.5 million contract -- a deal that was widely viewed as an overpay at the time. Coming off a season in which he was limited to one sack and 12 tackles in six games while dealing with shoulder, triceps, quad and ankle injuries, the 29-year-old defensive tackle will have to settle for a much smaller contract in his second crack at free agency. He did have 4.5 or more sacks in four of five seasons from 2011 to 2015 while with the Dolphins, playing all 16 games in each of those years. Odrick would make sense as a discount/fallback option for a Giants defense that recently lost DT Jonathan Hankins to the Colts. Seattle could also use interior line help, whereas Philadelphia seems to have addressed that area by trading for Timmy Jernigan to join Fletcher Cox. Odrick should have time to work his way back to full strength before training camp.

01/26/17LBSean PorterHamstringQUESTIONABLEPorter (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Porter injured his hamstring in Week 15 and missed the Jaguars' Week 16 game against the Titans. Porter had spent much of the season on the practice squad and hadn't recorded any tackles in two games played for Jacksonville this season. The team should move on just fine in his absence.

01/26/17DBJames SampleShoulderQUESTIONABLESample (shoulder) has been placed on the IR by the Jaguars, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Sample was injured during the preseason with what was believed to be just a stinger, but the issue appears to be more severe than originally expected as he's been placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old safety will look to get back to full health before trying once again to make an NFL roster.

01/26/17DLJonathan WoodardAchillesQUESTIONABLEWoodard (Achilles) has been placed on the Jaguars' reserve/PUP list, The Florida Times-Union reports.

Woodard had torn an Achilles' tendon during the team's offseason program and was never expected to be ready for the regular season opener. Now, he's officially ineligible to play until Week 7. However, it's unclear what sort of role he'll serve when healthy.

01/26/17RBT.J. YeldonAnkleQUESTIONABLEJaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said he still envisions Chris Ivory and Yeldon (ankle) as being options 1/1A in the backfield, ESPN.com reports.

Yeldon and Ivory entered 2016 in a committee, with both ultimately held back by a combination of injuries, poor running and the general ineffectiveness of Jacksonville's ground attack. It sounds as if the team's early plan is to take a similar approach in 2017, hoping that better health and better blocking will lead to improved results. Should the committee shape up as expected, Yeldon would get most of the passing-down work and some of the carries, while Ivory would handle more carries along with short-yardage/goal-line work. The Jaguars might also consider involving Corey Grant and/or a draft pick in the potential committee, which would potentially dilute Yeldon's involvement even further.

01/02/17WRAllen HurnsHamstringQUESTIONABLEHurns (hamstring) will train with Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson next week, The Florida Times-Union reports.

Hurns missed the final five games of last season with a hamstring injury, but there's been no report of surgery and nothing to suggest that the issue will impact his offseason program. With Hurns, Robinson and Bortles all looking to bounce back from massively disappointing 2016 campaigns, this is shaping up as a make-or-break year for the young Jacksonville offense. Fellow wideout Marqise Lee did enjoy a breakout season amidst the chaos, thereby giving Hurns and Robinson more competition for targets than they had back in 2015. There should still be plenty to go around -- especially if the Jags don't use a high draft pick on a tight end or a pass-catching back. The team begins its offseason program April 10.

01/02/17WRNeal SterlingConcussionQUESTIONABLESterling (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis.

Sterling didn't practice all week and his inactive status comes as no surprise. Ben Koyack will see a majority of snaps at tight end with Sterling out.

07/29/16WRJustin BlackmonSuspensionSUSPENDBlackmon (suspension) was handed a one-year suspended sentence and probation Wednesday, stemming from a misdemeanor DUI, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
