Position Listing
Marcedes Lewis
Lewis caught one pass for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

On the whole, Blake Bortles has not favored his tight ends this season, as neither Lewis nor Julius Thomas have been major factors in the offense. Thomas was targeted eight times Sunday, but he hauled in just three passes for 14 yards, while both Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson topped the 100-yard plateau.

Nick Marshall
Jaguars defensive back Nick Marshall will return punts this week against the Colts, the Florida Times-Union reports.

The Jaguars had been using rookie Rashad Greene on punt returns, but he was placed on short-term injured reserve prior to Week 3 against the Patriots. New England never had to punt in that game, so we never saw Greene's replacement. Marshall is a rookie who did some returning in the preseason.

Carson Tinker
No Updates
Christopher Reed
No Updates
Roy Miller
Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it.

"The doctor is going in there to take a look at everything and hopefully we'll go with the quick route," Miller said. "If they can trim it, I'll be back on my feet the next day. If not, you have to wait for it to stitch together and then you take precautionary steps and that's maybe a couple of months."

Miller sat out the final two games of the season before opting for surgery. He signed a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension five days after the injury. His season ends with 30 tackles and one sack.

Marqise Lee
Lee (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Active for the first time since Week 3, Lee's return to the mix coincides with fellow wideout Allen Hurns playing through a foot issue. Still, we'd like to see Lee - who has caught three passes for 40 yards in two games to date - turn in a full and productive game before recommending him as a fantasy lineup option.

Clay Harbor
Harbor (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With the return to health of top tight end Julius Thomas, however, Harbor's Week 7 absence is of more import to the Jaguars' depth at tight end than it is to fantasy owners.

Rashaad Reynolds
No Updates
Ben Koyack
The Jaguars have announced that they have signed seventh-round tight end Ben Koyack to his rookie contract. Half of their draft class has been signed.

Koyack caught 30 passes last season for Notre Dame.

Abry Jones
Jaguars defensive backs Alan Ball (abdomen) and Dwayne Gratz (ankle), along with defensive lineman Abry Jones (abdomen) are active for Week 2 against the Redskins. Ball was considered questionable for the game with his injury, but neither Gratz nor Jones was expected to miss any time. 
Jermey Parnell
The Jaguars made the signing of offensive tackle Jermey Parnell official on Wednesday, per the team's official website. He reportedly agreed to a five-year, $32-million deal with Jacksonville, after serving as the Cowboys' swing tackle last season. He graded 20th out of 84 offensive tackles last season, per Pro Football Focus.

Kadeem Edwards
The Buccaneers placed rookie guard Kadeem Edwards on injured reserve with a foot injury, the team announced.
Andre Branch
The Jaguars are looking at Week 4 as the earliest possible return for defensive end Andre Branch, according to the Associated Press.
Paul Posluszny
Posluszny (ankle) is active Sunday against the Texans.

No surprise here, but this is excellent news for the Jaguars rushing defense as they try to slow down Arian Foster.

James Sample
The Jaguars placed safety James Sample and offensive lineman Sen'Derrick Marks on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday, reports the Florida Times-Union.

Sample is dealing with a broken right arm, while Marks is recovering from a torn ACL.

Chris Clemons
Jaguars defensive end Chris Clemons, who is still recovering from a knee injury, most likely will not play during the team's preseason opener next week, per the Associated Press

Clemons, who was a no-show for the team's first day of camp, has been making progress, but Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he "doubts" Clemons will be ready for action. 

Craig Loston
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.

Dwayne Gratz (hip) was the only other player on the report listed as questionable, while Alan Ball (biceps) and Andre Branch (groin) were officially ruled out for Sunday.

Ankle - Missed Week 12 vs. San Diego
Justin Blackmon
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. 

Blackmon hasn't been in contact with the team and his time away from the game signals he is not prepared to hit the field anytime soon. 

"I don't know to expect but I would say common sense would probably be if you haven't played football in two-and-a-half years apparently that's not a priority for you," Caldwell said. 

The Jaguars have no plans to cut Blackmon, who would have to apply for reinstatement and go through a two-month vetting process before being allowed to play again. 

Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Ryan Davis
After surprising most observers by tallying 6 1/2 sacks last season, Jaguars defensive end Ryan Davis isn't content to rest on his laurels, aiming to improve on those numbers in 2015, per the Jacksonville Times-Union

Davis played on just 27.6 percent of the Jags' snaps last season, but with the season-ending injury to rookie Dante Fowler, those numbers likely will increase. 

"My mind-set has always been to elevate my level of play every year," Davis said. "I'm going to come in and be in great shape, and from the mental aspect, my expectation is to come out and be better than last year."

Davon House
Jaguars cornerback Davon House (foot) was seen practicing Friday, per Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union.

The big free-agent addition from the Packers hasn't been all that effective so far - he's recorded just seven tackles and hasn't forced a turnover in 177 snaps this season - but his presence will be needed when Jacksonville takes on Indianapolis this Sunday.

Jason Myers
Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley did not rule out the possibility of bringing in kickers to push for Myers' job, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Myers has made eight of his 11 field-goal attempts and 15 of his 18 extra-point tries. Even if he keeps the job after Jacksonville's Week 8 bye, he'll probably be one or two misses away from losing his spot on the roster. The Jacksonville offense has come a long ways since last season, but the unit still ranks in the bottom 10 for both yards and points per game.

Richard Ash
No Updates
Allen Hurns
Hurns (concussion) has been released from the hospital.

The Jaguars will update the status of Hurns (who was stretchered off the field after suffering a concussion during Sunday's game against the Chargers) on Monday, but the fact that he's already out of the hospital is a good sign with regard to his long-term prognosis. That said, the wideout's Week 13 status is uncertain at this stage.

Concussion - Left Week 12 vs. San Diego
Michael Bennett
The Jaguars are all set with sixth-round defensive tackle Michael Bennett, who has signed his rookie contract.

The 293-pound Bennett racked up 110 tackles and 18 sacks in 47 games for Ohio State. A hamstring problem prevented him from participating in mini-camp last weekend.

Hamstring - Missed Week 12 vs. San Diego
Brandon Linder
The Jaguars have declared guard Brandon Linder out for the Sunday game against the Colts.

Linder has been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury in recent weeks.

Corey Grant
Jaguars running back Corey Grant carried the ball twice for minus-6 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

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.

Dwayne Gratz
Jaguars cornerback Dwayne Gratz is in a backup role during OTAs behind 2013 seventh-round pick Demetrius McCray and free-agent addition Davon House, but he's looking to get another shot at starting in the future, the Florida Times-Union reports.

"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."

Bryan Anger
The Jaguars have listed punter Bryan Anger (groin), guard Zane Beadles (calf), center Luke Bowanko (quad), defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (shoulder) and kicker Josh Scobee (quad) as probable for Week 1 against the Eagles, the team announced.
Rashad Lawrence
No Updates
Stefen Wisniewski
Despite undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in January, Jaguars center Stefen Wisniewski said the rehab is going well and his goal is to be ready by training camp, the team announced.

Wisniewski was signed by the team to compete for a starting role along the interior of the offensive line.

Denard Robinson
Robinson logged just one carry in Sunday's win over the Ravens, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Robinson has seen his workload greatly reduced this season as the Jaguars have turned to rookie T.J. Yeldon as their number one back. The former Michigan quarterback has just 15 carries for 50 yards in six games, and he's been an ancillary factor as a pass-catcher, as well. However, T.J. Yeldon was spotted with a walking boot Monday, and with the Jags playing on a short week, Robinson could see an increased workload if Yeldon is limited or held out.

T.J. Yeldon
Yeldon rushed nine times for 36 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 46 more in Sunday's loss to San Diego.

Yeldon received single-digit carries for the first time all season, but the lack of work was a product of the Jaguars trailing most of the game and not some greater shift in philosophy. The rookie has 15 catches in his last four games, and his ability as a receiver comes in handy in games like this one where he doesn't see much work on the ground. Yeldon's only glaring deficiency is his inability to find the end zone, as he has just two total touchdowns this season.

Sergio Brown
The Jaguars are expected to sign former Colts free safety and special teams ace Sergio Brown on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports. Brown, 26, registered 33 tackles and one sack last season for the Colts.

Toby Gerhart
Gerhart (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Gerhart will serve as the number three running back in this game.

Luke Joeckel
Jaguars OT Luke Joeckel is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. 

Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.

Sam Young
With starting right tackle Austin Pasztor rupturing his hamstring Week 13, the Jaguars will replace him with rookie Josh Wells or veteran Sam Young, reports the Florida Times-Union. Wells filled in for Pasztor against the Giants, logging 41 snaps.

"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.

Jordie Tripp
The Dolphins released their final injury report for the Week 16 matchup against the Vikings and tight end Charles Clay (hamstring) is listed as probable.

The Dolphins listed Jelani Jenkins (foot), Don Jones (shoulder) and Jamar Taylor (shoulder) as questionable.

The Dolphins deemed offensive lineman Nate Garner (illness) out. Dallas Thomas (foot) and Daniel Thomas (knee) are listed as doubtful.

The following players are listed as probable: Koa Misi ,Chris McCainCortland FinneganJonathan Freeny and Jordie Tripp.

The Dolphins are 6 1/2-point favorites.

Josh Wells
With starting right tackle Austin Pasztor rupturing his hamstring Week 13, the Jaguars will replace him with rookie Josh Wells or veteran Sam Young, reports the Florida Times-Union. Wells filled in for Pasztor against the Giants, logging 41 snaps.

"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.

Jeff Tuel
The Jaguars claimed quarterback Jeff Tuel off waivers Monday, reports the Florida Times-Union.

Tuel was released by the Bulls. He has three interceptions and one touchdown over two games in his career.

Telvin Smith
Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith racked up 14 tackles (13 solo), including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Smith now has 52 combined tackles after five games, the second-most in the league behind the Colts' D'Qwell Jackson (58). Smith also has a half-sack on the season in addition to one pass defended.

Tyson Alualu
The Jaguars announced Sunday that the team has re-signed defensive lineman Tyson Alualu.

Alualu was reported to have a two-year deal for $6 million with the team Saturday. The former first-round pick recorded 30 tackles and two sacks in 2014.

Arrelious Benn
The Eagles released wide receiver Arrelious Benn with an injury settlement, according to ESPN on Saturday. Benn suffered a concussion in the third week of preseason, but it was a back injury that caused him to land on the injury reserve to start the season before he was officially waived by Philadelphia.
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Julius Thomas
Thomas caught 9-of-10 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-25 loss to the Chargers.

Thomas turned in by far his best performance of the season against a defense he had grown used to eviscerating as a member of the Broncos. He has scored in two straight games after an incredibly slow start to 2015, and the tight end's 24 touchdowns over the previous two seasons indicate that he's capable of being a consistent red zone weapon when utilized properly. Next up for Thomas and the Jaguars is a matchup against a Titans team that he just scored against in Week 11.

Johnathan Cyprien
Cyprien (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills in London.

Cyprien is out there Sunday if you need him as an IDP this week. Through four games to date, the Jaguars' starting strong safety has recorded 27 tackles, including 14 stops in Week 4.

Dante Fowler
The Jaguars have finalized the process of ending the season of defensive end and top pick Dante Fowler by placing him on injured reserve.

Fowler sustained a torn ACL on the first day of May minicamp and underwent surgery. He has begun rehabbing, but will not play this year.

Knee - IR. Out for season
Shaq Evans
The Jets lost three players to concussions and three others to an assortment of injuries in Friday's preseason game against Atlanta, per ESPN.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, safety Durell Eskridge and running back Daryl Richardson all left with concussions.

Offensive tackle Ben Ijalana left the game with a knee injury. Shaq Evans sprained his back, and Sashaun Phillips hurt his ribs.

Hayes Pullard
The Browns signed fourth-round pick Vince Mayle and seventh-round selection Hayes Pullard, the team announced

Mayle is a receiver who played college football at Washington State. Pullard is an inside linebacker from USC. 

Rasheed Bailey
No Updates
Neal Sterling
The Jaguars have announced the signing of seventh-round pick and wideout Neal Sterling. He is locked up for four years.

Sterling thrived at Monmouth (N.J.) with 212 receptions for 2,615 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games.

Illness - Missed Week 12 vs. San Diego
Zane Beadles
The Jaguars have listed punter Bryan Anger (groin), guard Zane Beadles (calf), center Luke Bowanko (quad), defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (shoulder) and kicker Josh Scobee (quad) as probable for Week 1 against the Eagles, the team announced.
Aaron Colvin
The Jaguars have ruled out Andre Branch (groin) and Jeremiah George (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Colts. Both players were unable to practice this week due to their respective injuries.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable for Week 12: Blake Bortles (left wrist), Chris Clemons (knee), Aaron Colvin (knee), Josh Evans (elbow), Brandon Linder (shoulder) and Austin Pasztor (hamstring).

Chris Smith
The Jaguars have ruled Roy Miller (knee), Chris Smith, Tyler Shatley, Matt Daniels, Jeremy Harris, Tommy Streeter (abdomen) and Stephen Morris as inactive for Sunday's season finale against Houston.
Allen Robinson
Robinson corralled 5-of-11 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chargers.

Robinson's breakout sophomore season continues, as he has now topped 50 receiving yards in every game since Week 1, and has six touchdowns in his last seven contests. Fellow receiver Allen Hurns left this game with a concussion, so it's conceivable Robinson will see even more attention than usual from quarterback Blake Bortles when the Jaguars face the Titans next week.

Chad Henne
Despite being listed as questionable, Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles is expected to start Thursday's game against the Titans, reports the Florida Times-Union. Bortles will try to play through a mid-foot sprain that had him in a walking boot earlier this week.

He's thrown just two touchdown passes in his last five games. Chad Henne would start if Bortles can't play.

A.J. Cann
The Jaguars officially signed their entire 2015 draft class when they agreed to a contract with guard A.J. Cann on Wednesday, reports ESPN's NFL Nation. Cann was a third-round pick in 2015.
Tyler Shatley
The Jaguars have ruled Roy Miller (knee), Chris Smith, Tyler Shatley, Matt Daniels, Jeremy Harris, Tommy Streeter (abdomen) and Stephen Morris as inactive for Sunday's season finale against Houston.
Tony Washington
The Jaguars have promoted wide receiver Tony Washington from the practice squad.

With Marqise Lee downgraded from probable to questionable, Washington was called up to provide some receiving depth. He's still firmly behind Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Bryan Walters on the depth chart, so it's unlikely he will see many targets Sunday at New England.

Thurston Armbrister
No Updates
Bernard Pierce
Pierce (calf) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Pierce has only six carries on the season, so his absence should be of little consequence to fantasy teams.

Calf - Missed Week 12 vs. San Diego
Luke Bowanko
The Jaguars enter the final week of the season relatively healthy. Outside of defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) who was ruled doubtful for Sunday's game against Houston, Jacksonville listed seven players as probable.

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).

Joe Banyard
Banyard has been promoted from the practice squad.

With Corey Grant (hip) landing on the IR and T.J. Yeldon (groin) still very much a question mark for Sunday's game against the Bills, Banyard was promoted to provide some depth at the running back position. Considering Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson will likely get most of looks out of the backfield, Banyard shouldn't be viewed as a viable fantasy option at this time. However, that could easily change if Robinson or Gerhart suffers an injury of their own.

Peyton Thompson
The following players were deemed inacitve for the Jaguars Week 8 against the Dolphins: Alan Ball, Peyton Thompson, Storm Johnson, Tyler Shatley, Mike Brown, Andre Branch and Josh Wells.
Rashad Greene
Greene (thumb) is active for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Greene will suit up for the first time since Week 2, but with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns (abdomen), Bryan Walters (concussion) and Marqise Lee (hamstring) all active, the rookie out of Florida State probably won't have a key role on offense. That being said, Greene could push Lee and Walters for playing time in three-wide formation at some point in the coming weeks.

Thumb - IR. Designated for return
Quanterus Smith
The Broncos have waived defensive end Quanterus Smith, the Denver Post reports. The team confirmed the move Tuesday.

Smith played in 15 games last season as DeMarcus Ware's backup on the line, recording 11 tackles and no sacks. He was placed on the injured reserve with a knee injury before the team's divisional-round loss against the Colts. His role next season could go to Shaquil Barrett, who was added to the roster before that playoff loss.

Bryan Walters
Walters (concussion) is active for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Walters made a quick recovery from the concussion he suffered in Sunday's win over Baltimore, but the extent of his involvement in the offense remains to be seen. Marqise Lee and Rashad Greene (thumb) are also available Thursday night, potentially providing competition for snaps in three-wide sets.

Blake Bortles
Bortles completed 30-of-49 passes for 329 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, and added 33 yards on six carries Sunday against the Chargers.

Bortles was asked to sling the ball around often because the Jaguars trailed for the vast majority of this contest, allowing the quarterback to pile up a very respectable yardage total. The Jaguars lost receiver Allen Hurns to a concussion, but prized free agent acquisition Julius Thomas finally stepped up with his first 100-yard game of the season. Bortles will need to maintain a strong rapport with the tight end moving forward if he wants to avoid a drop-off in production in Hurns' absence.

Demetrius McCray
The Jaguars are not in good shape in the standings, but they are in good shape otherwise. All eight players on their Friday injury report at questionable or probable.

The former category consists of linebackers LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and Jeremiah George (ankle). The probables are quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist), defensive ends Andre Branch (groin) and Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (elbow), cornerback Demetrius McCray (ankle) and wideout Cecil Shorts (illness).

Nic Jacobs
The minor contributors outnumbered the major ones Sunday for the Jaguars - it's no wonder they lost badly to Dallas.

The best of the bunch was wideout Allen Robinson, who caught five passes for 60 yards. Tight end Clay Harbor chipped in with three catches for 28 yards while running back Jordan Todman added three receptions for 27 yards and two rushes for six yards. Also contributing were tight end Nic Jacobs (1-14) and wideouts Marqise Lee (1-13), Ace Sanders (1-10) and Allen Hurns (1-9).

Running back Toby Gerhart managed two yards on four carries for Jacksonville, which has embarked on its bye week.

Sen'Derrick Marks
Marks (torn triceps) will be placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday afternoon, NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports.

It's been a rough 11 months for Marks, who managed 8.5 sacks and 44 tackles last season, but then suffered a torn ACL in Week 17. He subsequently made just four appearances this season, recording six tackles, three passes defensed and zero sacks. The good news is that he'll be further removed from the ACL injury next season, and the torn triceps should be healed before training camp.

Triceps - IR. Out for season
Damian Copeland
For a few hours Wednesday, the Jaguars had two healthy receivers who have played in the NFL. That's how many receivers Jacksonville has lost. ESPN.com updated the team's woes at wideout:

Mike Brown went down with hamstring tightness Wednesday after a strong camp. It's unclear how long he'll be out.

Starter Cecil Shorts left the first practice July 25 with hamstring tightness too and has not practiced since. Rookie Allen Robinson strained his hamstring July 31 and will be out at least one more week. Tandon Doss is out indefinitely with a badly sprained ankle.

Rookie Damian Copeland went on IR on Monday with a wrist injury. Rookie Nathan Slaughter sprained his foot and is out several weeks. Ace Sanders, who caught 51 passes last year, took a leave of absence for "personal issues" and will face a four-game substance abuse suspension upon his return.

"Man, I've never seen anything like it," said receiver Kerry Taylor, who started four games last year. "I don't even know what to call it."
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Dan Skuta
Dan Skuta officially signed his free agent deal with the Jaguars on Wednesday. The deal was reportedly worth $20.5 million over five years.

Skuta, 28, started nine games for San Francisco, filling in for Aldon Smith last season. He registered a career-high five sacks in 14 games.

Groin - Missed Week 12 vs. San Diego
Jared Odrick
The Jaguars officially signed defensive tackle Jared Odrick on Wednesday, per the team's official website. Odrick will reportedly make $8.5 million per season with $22 million guaranteed.

Odrick, 27, spent his first five seasons in Miami with the Dolphins. He posted 29 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble while playing every game last season.

Josh Evans
Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien (calf) is inactive Sunday against the Patriots.

Josh Evans will take over for Cyprien in a game that the Jaguars needed all the help they could get against the potent Patriots' offense.
