While Lewis is firmly behind Julius Thomas in the pecking order, the Jaguars run a number of two-tight-end sets, so the veteran remains a minor component in the passing game. Lewis failed to reach the end zone all of last season, and Sunday's touchdown marked his first since December of 2014.
Ellis boosted his chances of making the Titans roster with a strong red zone performance, but the undrafted free agent's chances are still bleak with established veterans Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, Craig Stevens and Phillip Supernaw already around. He scored just one touchdown in two years with the Tennessee Volunteers, so don't expect a repeat of this performance any time soon.
The severity of Marshall's ankle injury is a bit unclear at this point, but he was held out of the Jaguars practice Saturday as a precaution. He's buried on the team's depth chart at cornerback, so he'll have to battle throughout the rest of training camp for a more prominent role.
Wolff suffered a hamstring injury during Jacksonville's third preseason game against the Bengals. However, no timetable has been provided for his return.
While the Jaguars' offense has been a massive disappointment, overall, through three games, Lee has quietly turned in back-to-back encouraging performances. As the third receiver behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, Lee has 10 catches for 119 yards over the last two weeks. However, he's failed to reach the end zone, which has prevented him from achieving true fantasy utility. With the Jaguars likley to continue throwing the ball at a high rate, Lee may be worth a desperation dart on the waiver wire, but the fact that he's firmly solidified as the third option at receiver restricts his fantasy ceiling.
Koyack went down during Wednesday's practice, but it wasn't immediately clear whether his injury would require surgery. The Jaguars didn't place the tight end on injured reserve, however, so they may be holding out hope for Koyack to return at another point in the 2016 campaign.
Day has been injured for the past few weeks, but could still make the final roster given he performs well throughout the rest of the preaseason and gets back to full health. He won't have much IDP value, as he's buried on the defensive line depth chart.
After being released by the Bills in September, Hill was picked up by the Saints and finished out the year on their practice squad. The Eastern Michigan product could have a tough time cracking Cincinnati's roster purely as a running back given the team's depth at the position.
Parnell sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday nursing his groin injury. The fact that he returned to practice without any limitations gives the impression that he should be ready to play Sunday.
After posting five tackles in the season opener, Posluszny erupted for double-digits in tackles to give him 16 in his first two games of the year. He's the only player in each of the last three seasons to average 10 tackles per game, making him a consistent fantasy option.
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.
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.
The Jaguars' offense was able to move the ball consistently for most of the game, with Myers finishing off a trio of drives with kicks from 26, 39, and 50 yards. Myers had a strong rookie season as a field goal kicker, converting 26 of 30 attempts, but struggled mightily on extra points (32 of 39), so Sunday's pair of conversions have to be viewed in a positive light. That said, he remains on fairly thin ice, and one rough week could place his job in jeopardy, long-term.
Ramsey, the Jaguars first-round draft pick back in April, made his NFL regular season debut on Sunday. He drew the start at cornerback, but temporarily left the game with a minor ankle sprain. However, Ramsey returned later in the contest and finished with two tackles, which suggests the injury is unlikely to be a factor moving forward. Unless he's limited at practice throughout the week, expect Ramsey to be a full go moving forward.
The entire Jaguars passing game benefited from the team falling behind early and abandoning the run. Even so, no one receiver was able to pull away from the pack with quarterback Blake Bortles distributing the ball to 10 different targets in this one. Hurns has 139 receiving yards through two games, but is yet to find the end zone after scoring 10 times in 2015.
The Ohio State product has been underwhelming in the early going. Although he appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars last season, Bennett was only able to tally 10 combined tackles. The revamped Jaguars defense is hoping that a healthy Bennett could be a solid return on investment during the regular season.
Linder has been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury in recent weeks.
T.J. Yeldon (groin) once again handled the bulk of the workload, but Grant received two carries on the day. One went for 11 yards, but the other was a disaster, as Grant blatantly fumbled on a toss play deep in Jacksonville territory. The Buccaneers were able to recover for a touchdown and Grant, understandably, did not see another carry the rest of the way. If Yeldon misses any time, Grant could see a slight increase in snaps, but Toby Gerhart and Bernard Pierce are probably ahead of him in the pecking order. Grant also handled kick return duties Sunday, logging 93 yards on three returns with a long of 42 yards.
"Right now, I’m not starting, and I understand that things aren’t always going to go my way," Gratz said. "I’m going to have to work for it in the offseason. Hopefully, one day I’ll get that spot back."
Gratz opened last season as a starter after being drafted in the third round in 2013, but he was replaced by McCray after four weeks. He again received a chance to start later in the season due to an injury to Alan Ball, but the Jaguars hit the free-agent market during the offseason for an upgrade at the starting postion.
"He’s really matured," coach Gus Bradley said. "I see a completely different mind-set this year than he was his first year. Sometimes, you’ve got to externally motivate guys, or get after them or challenge them. That’s how I felt Gratzie was. I remember two years ago or a year and a half ago, I told him until he changes his mind-set, we’re going to have to continue to motivate him. Well, he’s not motivated through that anymore. It feels all more internally. I think he’s made really good strides. We’ll see how it carries over, but his mind-set, I really like how it is."
Lawrence was a healthy scratch for his two games on the active roster, and with the Jaguars suddenly needing another running back, the 23-year-old wideout was a casualty. Lawrence will likely revert back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Even with Chris Ivory (general medical issue) sidelined for the second straight week, the Jaguars failed to get Robinson involved in the offensive game plan. That said, Jacksonville was forced to all but abandon the rushing game after falling behind 21-0 in the first half, so it wasn't necessarily a strong representation of what the team would like the offense to look like. Ivory's status for Week 3 is up in the air as of Monday night, but whenever he returns -- whether it's Week 3 or Week 4 -- Robinson's role will likely diminish even more.
Yeldon managed a long run of nine yards Sunday, but he was bottled up the rest of the day as he totaled just eight yards on his other five carries. He was expected to see a modest uptick in usage as Chris Ivory continues to deal with an illness, which caused him to exit Sunday's contest, but he still touched the ball a season-low eight times. Yeldon has been extremely inefficient through three games, as he is averaging just 2.5 yards per carry and an equally unimpressive 3.6 yards per catch. With Ivory still experiencing symptoms of his illness, Yeldon could be the featured back next week versus the Colts, but his output from the first three games makes him tough to rely on from a fantasy perspective.
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.
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.
Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.
"Wells did a pretty good job when he stepped in," coach Gus Bradley told the paper. "The reason why we had him up [active] over Sam Young is because of his flexibility. He could play left tackle and right tackle. Sam does a good job at right tackle so we'll talk more about that, but it will be one of those two."
The Jaguars host the Texans on Sunday.
While Smith can still add some polish to his game, he's been among the Jaguars' most reliable defenders over the past two seasons. The Florida State product notched 104 combined tackles as a rookie and followed up with 128 tackles in 14 games last season. The Jaguars added high-upside rookie Myles Jack in the second round of the draft, and while Jack is expected to gradually take on a larger workload as the season progresses, his development isn't expected to result in significantly fewer snaps for Smith. In Week 1 against the Packers, Smith will be tasked with helping slow down Eddie Lacy, and he'll be tested in coverage against tight end Jared Cook.
By placing Josh Wells on IR, the Jaguars effectively created another roster spot to resign Benn. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as a depth receiver behind the likes of both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
Brown's three-year tenure with the Ravens ended abruptly Saturday, but he has found a new home with Jacksonville. Despite the fact that he has never started an NFL game, Brown appeared in all 16 games for Baltimore last season.
After two strong outings in Weeks 1 and 2, Thomas followed up with a dud in Week 3, as the Jaguars fell to 0-3 with the 19-17 home loss. The five targets were an encouraging number, but with the Jaguars failing to move the ball effectively for most of the day, Thomas' opportunities inside the 20 yard line were limited. Thomas remains a fairly intriguing commodity given the Jaguars' high volume of pass attempts, but with quarterback Blake Bortles struggling through three weeks, it's tough to get excited about any Jacksonville pass-catchers other than Allen Robinson, who scored twice Sunday.
Fowler came into this game listed as questionable with an illness, but he ended up being one of the only bright spots for the Jaguars on defense. He's showing the burst that the team was excited about when making him the No. 3 selection in the 2015 draft. He's clearly a player on the rise.
Pullard will look to return Week 4 against the Colts.
Sterling thrived at Monmouth (N.J.) with 212 receptions for 2,615 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games.
The veteran has played 76 games in his five-year career, which also includes four seasons with the Colts, with five starts.
Colvin was dealing with an ankle injury and had been sidelined since the team's preseason opener. He was back on the field Wednesday and should be available for Saturday's matchup with the Buccaneers. Colvin is suspended for the first four games of the regular season for taking performance enhancing substances, but he should be back to full strength by then.
Robinson was held under 60 receiving yards for the second straight game, but he rewarded fantasy owners with some nice work in the red zone, including a three-yard reception for a score in the second quarter and an 11-yard TD grab that was overturned after initially being waived off in the third quarter. Robinson has yet to fully get it going, as he has drawn even more attention from opposing defenses in 2016, but Sunday's performance shows that he is still capable of piling up fantasy points in a hurry. He will face his most inviting matchup of the season in Week 4 versus the Colts.
Henne played the entire second half, leading Jacksonville to a pair of touchdowns on six drives, and eventually kneeling twice to end the game. He doesn't have competition for the No. 2 quarterback job, though the Jags might retain sixth-round rookie Brandon Allen as a developmental project.
Ivory made his season debut Sunday after missing Jacksonville's first two games due an undisclosed medical issue, but now has a pair of new maladies to start this week. While the rugged runner was able to play though his knee and ankle sprains, Ivory finished with 12 rushes for just 14 yards. If he's limited by his latest ailment this week, T.J. Yeldon could see the bulk of the Jaguars' backfield work, which was the case when Ivory was out to begin the campaign.
Washington went down with hamstring earlier in the week which evidently will keep him sidelined for an extended amount of time. The Jaguars decided to instead part ways with the wideout instead of keeping him on the IR. The second-year man could hope to return to Jacksonville once completely healthy.
Those include quarterback Blake Bortles (foot), center Luke Bowanko (wrist), defensive end Andre Branch (groin), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), running back Toby Gerhart (ribs), wide receiver Cecil Shorts III (shoulder) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdomen).
Jackson, who signed a six-year deal with the Jaguars this offseason worth up to $85.5 million, said he spoke with coaches during OTA's and took their advice to heart. "The two things they talked to me about before we left for our break was losing weight and my cardio," Jackson said. "Coach Wash pulled me aside and said that's what I needed to work on." The 26-year-old played at around 308 pounds in 2015, when he recorded 5.0 sacks and 45 combined tackles, helping to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory. As the headliner of a seven-man Jags free agent class, expectations will be high for Jackson, but head coach Gus Bradley is pleased with what he's seen thus far. "He has done a good job," Bradley said Friday. "I'll tell you what, he does a good job working on the edge. You know when you see him on a guard. Good technique and conditioning, he plays on the edge a little bit more and he shows some rushing."
The Jaguars struggled to move the ball throughout the day, and Greene was a virtual non-factor out of the slot. The Florida State product remains the team's No. 4 receiver and primary punt returner, but he can safely be ignored in all but the deepest of leagues.
Jack has been an impressive youngster throughout the early portion of the preseason and will likely receive first-team snaps at middle linebacker during Sunday's matchup with Cincinnati. According to Bradley, the game appears to be slowing down for the rookie. Jack projects to carve out some sort of meaningful role with the Jacksonville defense in his first season.
Walters was released by the Jaguars last week, but it did not take long for him to return. It appears the Jaguars want a little more depth at wide receiver. The 28-year-old failed to take the field in both games he played with the team prior to his release last week.
Ngakoue might not be especially well known after playing for a bad Maryland team, but he was very productive over the last two years, totaling 19 sacks and 28 tackles for loss. He'll be a fine prospect to groom in the Chris Clemons role of the Jacksonville defense.
Bortles' two touchdowns were the definition of garbage-time production, as both came in a fourth quarter that the Jaguars entered trailing 35-0. The third-year signal caller has topped 320 yards in each of the first two weeks, and should continue to put up gaudy yardage totals while being asked to throw to a decent cast with the Jaguars likely to continue falling behind early and often. Don't worry too much about how he gets the fantasy points as long as Bortles keeps putting up numbers.
Huff has played 63 and 81 percent of the special teams snaps for the Titans in his first two professional campaigns, respectively. Along the way, the safety has accrued 33 tackles (22 solo), four passes defended, one interception for a touchdown, and one sack in 30 career games. After missing the Titans' season opener on Sept. 11 against the Vikings, Huff will be eligible to play in Week 2 at Detroit.
Marks was a participant during individual drills for the first time this offseason after suffering torn triceps during November of the 2015 campaign, leading to an injured reserve designation. "It felt good just getting back, trusting the process, going out and not having any hiccups," Marks said Friday regarding his return to the practice field. The 6-foot-2, 294-pound veteran also believes he'll be a full participant for training camp, which begins in late July. He's expected to receive a lighter snap load throughout the 2016 regular season regardless, one reason being the addition of Malik Jackson in free agency.
Gipson appeared on the Jaguars' practice report for the first time on Friday, where he practiced in limited fashion. He likely suffered the injury during practice, with the team keeping him out as a precaution. If he's held out or is limited, Peyton Thompson figures to see some extra reps.
Look for more details on the injury to emerge once the game concludes. In the meantime, expect Arthur Brown to fill in as the starting strongside linebacker.
Odrick hasn't been able to practice since injuring his elbow in Week 2's matchup against the Chargers, so his status was always in doubt leading into Sunday. Expect Tyson Alualu and Sen'Derrick Marks to see additional snaps in Odrick's absence.
