News

Bryant started all but one game last season and was in on 30 tackles with 1 1/2 sacks.

Craig Loston
News
The Jaguars promoted safety Craig Loston from the practice squad and waived safety Winston Guy.
Storm Johnson
News
What Jaguars running back Storm Johnson contributed most of the game Sunday against Cleveland was more like a drizzle than a storm. But he did enjoy one highlight.

Johnson iced the victory with a 3-yard touchdown run with 4:35 remaining in the game. He was otherwise overshadowed by breakout back Denard Robinson. Johnson finished with 16 yards on six carries.

He will try to bring more to the table if given the opportunity when Jacksonville hosts Miami in Week 8.

Justin Blackmon
News
Jaguars suspended wide receiver Justin Blackmon has voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility, according to ESPN. 

Coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon was "doing very well," according to the report. Bradley cannot speak to Blackmon due to the suspension, and has been getting updates from his agent. Blackmon was suspended for at least a year after repeated violating the substance abuse policy. Though he's currently unable to play, Blackmon is still a member of Jacksonville's organization.

The other small contributors added one catch - Jordan Todman for 26 yards, Allen Hurns for seven yards and Ace Sanders for no yards.

Will Ta'ufo'ou
News
The Jaguars backup pass catchers were able to get in some work Week 4.

Jacksonville spread the ball around quite a bit, allowing 10 different receivers to come up with a reception. Allen Robinson made some noise, hauling in five passes for 38 yards. He was targeted seven times, which was second on the club. 

Mike Brown had one catch for 12 yards. Fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou also hauled in one pass, gaining 4 yards. Nic Jacobs had the least yardage of all receivers on the day, but had the only touchdown. In the second quarter, Jacobs came down with a 2 yard touchdown pass from Blake Bortles.

They'll take on the Steelers Week 5. 

Brandon Linder
News
The Jaguars signed 2014 third-round draft pick guard Brandon Linder to a contract, the team announced Monday. Linder, the 93rd overall selection, is expected to compete for a starting job this year.
LaRoy Reynolds
News
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday linebacker J.T. Thomas will take over at middle linebacker in the wake of Paul Posluszny suffering a season-ending pectoral injury. Bradley added LaRoy Reynolds and Dekoda Watson will take over at outside linebacker, where Thomas had been starting.
Ziggy Hood
News
The Jaguars have signed defensive tackle Ziggy Hood according to the Florida Times-Union. Hood will likely work in a rotation along the D-line. 

Hood started seven of 16 games with the Steelers last year after starting every game for them in 2012. 

Cecil Shorts
News
After struggling much of the season, Browns cornerback Joe Haden was back in shutdown form Week 7 at Jacksonville, preventing Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts from following up his 10-catch, 103-yard effort from the week before. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Haden shadowed Shorts much of the day and was physical with him at the line of scrimmage.

That didn't stop rookie quarterback Blake Bortles from throwing the ball Shorts' way, but the two connected on only three of nine targets for 12 yards.

The Jaguars offense being what it is, you can't expect Shorts to be consistent in Fantasy, but if you were excited about him just a week ago, you shouldn't be so quick to dump him based on this performance. It's clear Bortles wanted to get him the ball. The matchup just prevented him from doing so.

Dwayne Gratz
News
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday starting cornerback Alan Ball is considered doubtful to play Week 8 against the Dolphins due to a biceps injury. Bradley added Ball is getting a second opinion on the injury.

Bradley said Dwayne Gratz and Demetrius McCray would start at cornerback Sunday, if Ball is sidelined.

Bryan Anger
News
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.
Denard Robinson
News
Jaguars running back Denard Robinson is the hot name and will be the top option on waivers this week, but what should Fantasy owners expect from him moving forward?

Robinson seems likely to remain the team's top back moving forward, though coach Gus Bradley was seemingly noncommittal when asked if Toby Gerhart will cut into his playing time upon his return. Still, Robinson should continue to see a healthy workload, so the question is how much Fantasy owners can expect from him.

Even if Robinson is to be unleashed again in Week 8 against the Dolphins, he will go up against a team that has proven pretty adept at slowing down running backs this season. With the exception of Weeks 3 and 7, when Matt Forte, Knile Davis and Joe McKnight racked up a combined 57 points -- including 30 through the air, which hasn't been Robinson's strength -- Miami's defense has done a good job against opposing running backs. In the team's other four games, only one back has reached double digits in Fantasy scoring, when Shane Vereen had 12 back in Week 1.

Robinson found success in his breakout in Week 7, but that was against a Browns defense that had allowed five double digit Fantasy performances by running backs in their first five games. Fortunately, things get easier after that, with the slumping Bengals on the way in Week 9. Robinson should be a useful Fantasy option moving forward, even if he might struggle a bit in Week 8.  

John Lotulelei
News
The Jaguars have signed wide receiver Kenny Shaw, defensive tackle David Carter and linebacker Josh Hull while waiving/injured defensive tackle Jordan Miller, linebacker John Lotulelei and wide receiver Damian Copeland.

Hayes racked up 58 tackles, 19 assists, one sack and two interceptions a year ago in his first season with Jacksonville.

Nathan Slaughter
News
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."
Injury

Johnathan Cyprien
News
The Jaguars should have most of their probable players Week 3 against the Colts.

Alan Ball, Chris Clemons, Johnathan Cyprien, Toby Gerhart, Winston Guy Jr., Paul Posluszny, Cecil Shorts III and Mickey Shuler are all active and ready to go. 

Lou Young
News
The Ravens have brought tight end Phillip Supernaw back to the practice squad two days after releasing him. Cornerback Lou Young was waived to make room.

Supernaw has been active twice this season, but has yet to make a catch.

Ace Sanders
News
Several Jaguars chipped in with offensive contributions Sunday against the Browns. The most well-rounded was wideout Marqise Lee, who caught one pass for 20 yards and added two carries for five yards.

The other small contributors added one catch - Jordan Todman for 26 yards, Allen Hurns for seven yards and Ace Sanders for no yards.

Jacques McClendon
News
The Jaguars announced Wednesday a few changes to their starting lineup along the offensive line. 

Rookie Luke Bowanko is replacing veteran Jacques McClendon as the team's starting center.

Young will remain in the starting lineup until Austin Pasztor is ready to return from a fractured hand he suffered in the preseason.

Josh Scobee
News
Jaguars placekicker Josh Scobee was called upon to kick one field field in Week 7 against Cleveland - and he booted it through from 30 yards out. He was also perfect on three extra point attempts to aid in the team's first victory of the season.

Aaron Colvin
News
Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin is eligible to return to practice this week, according to ESPN. However, he likely won't start until Week 8 against Miami, the team announced. Colvin was placed on the  non-football injury list earlier in the year as he was rehabbing from a torn ACL.
Injury
Undisclosed - NFI. Out until at least Week 7 vs. Cleveland
Chris Smith
News
The Jaguars promoted rookie defensive end Chris Smith to the active roster. He was a fifth-round pick out of Arkansas.
Allen Robinson
News
Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson scored his first career touchdown Week 7 against Cleveland, connecting with fellow rookie Blake Bortles on a 31-yard catch-and-run late in the second quarter.

Describing the play as "catch-and-run," though, makes it sound like the run aspect was by design, which simply isn't true. Robinson caught the pass with his back to the defense for what looked like a simple 10-yard gain. But he shook off one defender, kept his balance and managed to elude three other defenders on his way to the end zone.

It was a special play by a player not often put in a position to make special plays. The Jaguars have used Robinson more as a possession guy, targeting him on plays designed to gain only 10 yards or so. And he's done fine in the role. His four catches in this game were actually his fewest in the last five.

There's something to be said for a player who catches five balls every week, even if he doesn't have many big plays or touchdowns to show for it. Certainly, in points-per-reception leagues, Robinson has some appeal. Owners in standard leagues might need to see a couple more touchdowns from him before taking the plunge, though.

Chad Henne
News
Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was pulled in favor of Blake Bortles Week 3.

Henne completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards. He averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. With the team down 30-0 at the half, Henne was benched in favor of Bortles. 

Henne will take on a backup role Week 4 against the Chargers.

Eric Kettani
News
The Jaguars waived/injured safety Chris Prosinski (elbow) and waived wideout Kerry Taylor and tight end Marcel Jensen. The team signed rookie tight end Nic Jacobs off the Saints' practice squad and added fullback Eric Kettani to its practice squad.
Blake Bortles
News
Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a Jekyll-Hyde Sunday against the Browns, but the bottom line was his first career victory.

Bortles completed 17 of 31 passes for 159 yards and a 31-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson late in the second quarter that gave his team the lead for good. But he also fired three interceptions to increase his season total to 10. The last of the trio was picked off in the red zone.

The rookie was 0 for 2 in the first quarter before finding the range. But the team stayed mostly on the ground down the stretch - he threw just five passes in the fourth quarter.

Bortles and the Jaguars will try to run with their momentum in Week 8 against Miami.

Demetrius McCray
News
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday starting cornerback Alan Ball is considered doubtful to play Week 8 against the Dolphins due to a biceps injury. Bradley added Ball is getting a second opinion on the injury.

Bradley said Dwayne Gratz and Demetrius McCray would start at cornerback Sunday, if Ball is sidelined.

Nic Jacobs
News
The Jaguars backup pass catchers were able to get in some work Week 4.

Jacksonville spread the ball around quite a bit, allowing 10 different receivers to come up with a reception. Allen Robinson made some noise, hauling in five passes for 38 yards. He was targeted seven times, which was second on the club. 

Mike Brown had one catch for 12 yards. Fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou also hauled in one pass, gaining 4 yards. Nic Jacobs had the least yardage of all receivers on the day, but had the only touchdown. In the second quarter, Jacobs came down with a 2 yard touchdown pass from Blake Bortles.

They'll take on the Steelers Week 5.

Damian Copeland
News
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."
Injury
Wrist - IR. Out for season
