Position Listing
Marcedes Lewis
News
The Jaguars have placed Lewis (calf) on IR.

With Lewis done for the season, the Jaguars' tight end corps moving forward will be led by Julius Thomas, with Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling also in the mix. Lewis' 2016 campaign thus ends with a 20/169/1 stat line over 10 contests.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
Alex Ellis
News
Ellis has been signed to the Jaguars active roster.

Ellis has been on Jacksonville's practice squad for the majority of his rookie season, but will now join the Jaguars' active roster and serve as a depth option at tight end.

Carson Tinker
No Updates
Chris Reed
News
Reed (toe) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Reed had been one of Jacksonville's top backups along the offensive line and the team will miss him if any injuries strike the starting line. Tyler Shatley will likely see extra time in Reed's place if the Jaguars need any backup to step up and play.

Injury
Toe - Questionable for the start of training camp
Roy Miller
News
Miller (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida-Times Union reports.

The news shouldn't come as a surprise, as the defensive tackle was told he would miss the remainder of the season after tearing his Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. The team promoted Richard Ash from the practice squad to fill Miller's roster spot.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Marqise Lee
News
Lee (hip flexor) is active for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Colts.

After practicing in a limited fashion all week, Lee will suit up for the final game of the season against a Colts secondary that's largely struggled throughout the season despite the presence of Vontae Davis. Lee will try to finish what has been a breakout season on a strong note, with career highs in catches (57) and yards (765) and touchdowns (three) already under his belt.

Akeem Davis
News
The Redskins lost two defensive backs to injuries, Monday. 

David Amerson is being evaluated after suffering a left-shoulder injury, and Akeem Davis is getting evaluated for an injury to his left thumb, per the Washington Post

Davis played in 13 games as a rookie last year. Amerson has played in 31 games over the last two seasons.

Ben Koyack
News
Koyack (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's season finale against the Colts after practicing in a limited fashion all week.

With fellow tight end Neal Sterling iffy to play Sunday after not practicing this week, Koyack appears on track to head the Jaguars' Week 17 TE corps. Even in such a role, his fantasy upside remains limited, as Koyack turned his 52 snaps in Week 16's win over the Titans into just two catches (on two targets) for 12 yards.

Patrick Omameh
News
Omameh (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Omameh injured his foot Sunday against the Lions and did not return to the game. The details of said injury aren't clear, but his absence will open the door for Jeremiah Poutasi to assume an expanded role for the remainder of the 2016 campaign.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Colin Kelly
No Updates
Abry Jones
News
Jones will sign a four-year, $16 million contract extension with the Jaguars, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

Jones has been with the Jaguars for the first four years of his career and they've opted to reward him with an extension after recording 32 tackles during the 2016 campaign. He ended up starting nine of 15 games and was more then a serviceable run stopper, so look for Jones to continue to play a significant role in team's defensive line rotation moving forward. Barring any changes prior to training camp, look for Jones to open the preseason as one of the Jaguars' two starters at defensive tackle.

Sheldon Day
News
Day (back) participated in practice Tuesday for the first time since earlier in August, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

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.

Bronson Hill
News
Hill saw his first action of the season in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Colts, rushing twice for 11 yards.

Hill was promoted to the 53-man roster in mid-December and was active for the Jags' final three contests. He did not carry the ball in Week 15 against Houston or Week 16 against Tennessee, but he logged a pair of carries, including a seven-yards scamper, in the season finale. Hill, 24, is unlikely to stick with the Jaguars' long-term and figures to find himself on a practice squad in 2017.

Jermey Parnell
News
Parnell was a full participant at Friday's practice.

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.

Brandon Allen
No Updates
Paul Posluszny
News
Posluszny registered 11 tackles in the Jaguars 21-20 loss to the Texans.

Posluszny is finishing the season on a solid note by posting back-to-back double-digit tackle totals after four games in which he had six or fewer tackles. He now has seven games with at least 10 tackles on the season, and although he struggled for a month, he remains a strong IDP option.

James Sample
News
Sample (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.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Doran Grant
News
Grant had a team-high eight tackles (seven solo) and an interception return for a touchdown against the Lions Friday.

Grant's pick-six, a 39-yard return, was the first score of the game. Expected to compete with Senquez Golson and first round draft pick Artie Burns for defensive snaps, Grant may have an opportunity for increased playing time after Golson (foot) underwent Lisfranc surgery and is expected to miss four months.

Jamal Robinson
No Updates
Jordan Hill
News
Hill (calf) won't play in Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

Hill was held out of practice all week and will be missing his second straight game due to his calf injury. Sen'Derrick Marks and Sheldon Day will look to see extra snaps once again with Hill out.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
E.J. Bibbs
News
Bibbs (heat issue) practiced Friday after leaving Thursday's session early, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Bibbs absence was just a one day occurrence, as expected. Now that he's rested and rehydrated he should be fully healthy entering Friday's training camp session.

Jeremiah Poutasi
News
Poutasi has been placed on injured reserve due to an ankle injury.

Poutasi was only signed to Jacksonville's active roster back in November but will now miss the remainder of the season.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Justin Blackmon
News
Blackmon (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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Davon House
News
House (illness) is not listed on the Jaguars' Week 3 inactives report.

House came down with an illness late in the week that jeopardized his status for Sunday's game. Nevertheless, he should get the start against the Ravens opposite Jalen Ramsey.

Jason Myers
News
Myers converted 27 of 34 field-goal attempts and 29 of 32 extra points during the 2016 season.

In a disappointing season for the entire Jaguars offense, Myers remained dependable. Although his low field goal percentage of 79 percent may not affirm that notion, it should be noted that five of his seven misses came from beyond 50 yards. Under contract through next season, Myers will return in 2017 as a middling fantasy option at kicker.

Elijah Shumate
News
Shumate signed a reserve/future contract with the Jaguars Tuesday.

Shumate didn't play in 2016 after being waived/injured with a wrist injury by Tampa Bay in the preseason. He'll look to catch on with Jacksonville in 2017, when he'll have a chance to secure a depth position and carve out a role on special teams.

Jalen Ramsey
News
Ramsey was able to return to Sunday's game against the Packers after suffering a minor ankle sprain, Ryan O'halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.

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.

Allen Hurns
News
Hurns (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Colts, the team's official site reports.

Hurns will thus finish the 2016 campaign having sat out the team's final six games of the season with his hamstring injury. After a breakout 2015 season that saw him post career highs in receptions (64), yards (1,031) and touchdowns (10), Hurns' was unable to produce anything resembling those numbers this season while dealing with his injury and ineffective play from QB Blake Bortles.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Michael Bennett
News
Bennett 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.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Linder
News
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.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kelvin Beachum
News
Steelers tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee) is doubftul to return after being carted to the locker room Sunday against Arizona.

Beachum fell to the ground during a running play in the second quarter, and was helped off the field.

Corey Grant
News
Grant rushed 18 times for 122 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Colts.

Grant served as the primary running back in the season finale with Chris Ivory (hamstring) and T.J. Yeldon (ankle) both held out. The second-year man out of Auburn took full advantage of the opportunity, topping 100 yards for the first time in his career. Grant was averaging just 3.0 yards per carry heading into this one, but raised that mark all the way to 5.1 thanks in large part to a 57-yard touchdown run. He finishes the season with 164 yards and a touchdown on 32 rushing attempts, as well as four catches for 35 yards and another touchdown.

Denard Robinson
News
Robinson appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars in 2016, rushing 41 times for 144 yards for an average of 3.5 yards per carry.

Robinson was relegated to mostly spot duty in 2016, as the Jaguars relied heavily on the combination of Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, neither of whom proved to be overly productive in their own right. With Yeldon and Ivory banged up throughout the year, Robinson had a few opportunities to see an increased workload, most notably against the Bills (Nov. 27) and Broncos (Dec. 4), when he carried 13 and 17 times, respectively. He failed to rush for more than nine yards on a single carry in either contest, however, a hallmark of a Jaguars' rushing attack that was among the most pitiful in the NFL on a week-to-week basis. Since entering the league as a converted quarterback in 2013, Robinson has held a steady role as a backup running back for the Jaguars, but with his contract set to expire this offseason, his future with the team is very much clouded. Considering both Yeldon and Ivory should be back in 2017, Robinson is perhaps more expendable than at any point in the past.

Arturo Uzdavinis
No Updates
T.J. Yeldon
News
Yeldon (ankle) has been placed on IR by the Jaguars, NFL.com reports.

With Yeldon unavailable for the Jaguars' season finale against the Colts and the team's backfield dealing with injuries to Denard Robinson and Chris Ivory as well, the Jaguars claimed RB Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Steelers om Monday.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Prince Amukamara
News
Amukamara (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Amukamara appears to be ready for Thursday's tilt against the Titans after seeing limited reps in practice both Monday and Tuesday. If he suffers any kind of setback, look for Aaron Colvin to see additional reps at cornerback.

Brad Nortman
No Updates
Jonathan Woodard
News
Woodard (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.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Luke Joeckel
News
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.

Injury
Knee - ACL + MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Josh Wells
News
Wells re-signed with the Jaguars on Friday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

The terms of the contract weren't disclosed. Wells will look to secure the Jaguars' left tackle job this summer.

Shane Wynn
News
Wynn (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Wynn will likely be the No. 5 option at receiver for the Jaguars on Sunday, so he shouldn't warrant much fantasy attention as a result.

Telvin Smith
News
Smith is set to once again serve as the Jaguars' starting weak-side linebacker this season.

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.

Tyson Alualu
News
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.

Gannon Sinclair
News
The Cardinals relased punter Dave Zastudil, LB Lorenzo Alexander, ILB Glenn Carson, G Nate Isles, ILB Edwin Jackson, ILB Andrae Kirk, S Shaq Richardson, TE Gannon Sinclair, WR Ryan Spadola and S Darren Woodard on Monday.

They also waived/injured wide receiver Travis Harvey (hamstring), who will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Arrelious Benn
News
Benn signed a contract with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Benn was only targeted 10 times in 2016, catching five passes for a total of 116 yards and one touchdown. He'll look to secure a role as a depth receiver and special teams player once again in 2017.

Daryl Richardson
News
Richardson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Colts, the team's official site reports.

Richardson was just claimed earlier in the week by the Jags after his release from the Steelers, with which he'd spent the entirety of the season.

Julius Thomas
News
Thomas (back) remains in the Jaguars' plans for 2017, WJXT Jacksonville reports.

Thomas was due $3 million if he was still on the roster at 4 PM ET, and the deadline came and went, signaling the Jaguars' commitment to the tight end for the upcoming season. They only would've saved $2 million by cutting him, so that doesn't seem to have been a legitimate possibility anyway. However, they can save $7 million by releasing him next season. Unless Thomas can put together a healthy and productive 2016 campaign, his days in Jacksonville may be numbered. The former All-Pro tight end has only played in 21 of 32 games as a member of the organization.

Injury

Johnathan Cyprien
News
Cyprien forced a fumble while collecting 17 tackles in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Cyprien is on fire, as he's posted 31 tackles over his last two games after not having more than 12 in any other game this season. As a safety, he's looking like a fantastic waiver wire add in IDP leagues if he's still available.

Dante Fowler
News
Fowler suffered a hip pointer in Week 15's matchup against the Texans, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Fowler will look to make progress this week before the Jaguars take on the Titans on Christmas Eve. In the meantime, expect Yannick Ngakoue to see an increased role along Jacksonville's defensive line.

Hayes Pullard
News
Pullard (ankle) is healthy to play in the Jaguars' Week 4 game against the Colts, The Florida Times-Union reports.

Pullard exited Week 3 after spraining an ankle and did not return. However, he was removed from the injury report after practicing in full on Friday.

Neal Sterling
News
Sterling (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.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Louis Nix
News
Nix signed a reserve/futures contract with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM Jacksonville reports.

Nix, a former Notre Dame standout and third-round pick by the Texans in 2014, has already bounced around between four organizations in his brief career, but has just four career games (all with the Giants in 2015) on his ledger. He was a member of the Jaguars' practice squad from Oct. 25 onward, but the team never added him onto the 53-man roster. Nix is set to attend training camp with the Jaguars, but he'll likely face an uphill battle in making the club in 2017.

Aaron Colvin
News
Colvin (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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Chris Smith
News
Smith (eye) was a full go at Wednesday's practice.

Smith has been dealing with an eye injury as of late, but looks like he will return to action in Week 13 and serve as a reserve option along the Jaguars' defensive line.

Allen Robinson
News
Robinson caught five of 12 targets for 82 yards Sunday in Indianapolis.

Robinson was held out of the end zone for the sixth consecutive game to close out a disappointing 2016 campaign. While he finished with a respectable 73 catches, the third-year wideout's 883 yards and six touchdowns represented major steps back from a breakout sophomore campaign in which he totaled 1,400 yards and scored 14 times. That downturn in production coincided with a down year from quarterback Blake Bortles, but hopefully a new coaching staff will lead to better results from the duo in 2017.

Marcus Rush
News
Rush has signed with the Jaguars.

Rush had a very strong preseason with the 49ers, recording six sacks in four games, but was stuck on the team's practice squad for most of the season. He will now get a chance to be a part of Jacksonville's active roster and will look to aid in the pass-rush department.

Chad Henne
News
Henne resigned with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Henne played in just one game in 2016 and didn't attempt a single pass. He'll be locked in as Blake Bortles' backup once again in 2017, and he isn't likely to see the field unless Bortles is injured.

Chris Ivory
News
Ivory amassed 439 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns and 186 receiving yards in his first season with the Jaguars.

It was a disappointing year for Ivory, who was expected to serve as the Jaguars' primary short-yardage back after a successful 2015 campaign in New York. He was limited to only 11 games due to injuries, and he began the season on the inactive list following a personal medical issue. After that, Ivory never truly found his groove, struggling to a career-low average of just 3.8 yards per carry. The highlight of the 28-year-old's season was an 18-carry, 107-yard outburst against the Chiefs on Nov. 6, but that would be the first, and only, time he'd top 50 yards in a single game on the season. Over his final five games of the year, Ivory carried the ball 40 times, reaching the end zone only once. After signing a five-year deal with the Jags last offseason, all indications are that Ivory will return in 2017 for a relatively team-friendly $4.5 million. Ivory will likely split time with T.J. Yeldon again in what should be a more productive offense under a new coaching regime.

Tony Washington
News

News
The San Diego Chargers released 11 players Saturday and have reached the league-mandated 53-man maximum on the roster. The players cut Saturday are as follows: Tackle Nick Becton; Linebacker Frank Beltre; Tight End Ben Cotton; Cornerback Marcus Cromartie; Defensive End Logan Harrell; Running Back Michael Hill; Cornerback Josh Johnson; Linebacker Thomas Keiser; Wide Receiver Robert Meachem; Center David Molk; and Tight End David Rolf.
Luke Bowanko
News
Bowanko (hip) was activated from the Jaguars' PUP list Saturday, Jacksonville.com reports.

Bowanko required hip surgery in the offseason, but began practicing Nov. 23. If Brandon Linder (knee) is unable to suit up Sunday against the Vikings, Bowanko is ready and projects to serve as the backup center.

Malik Jackson
News
Jackson dropped 12 pounds between OTA's and the start of training camp, Jacksonville.com reports.

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."

Joe Banyard
News
Banyard was signed from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.

Banyard has spent the entire season on the Jaguars practice squad and will finally have a chance to make his debut for the team. He's buried on the depth chart at running back but could contribute on special teams in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Peyton Thompson
News
Thompson (ankle) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Thompson endured a one-game absence aftering injuring his ankle in Week 13 against the Broncos, but he's in line to return Sunday against the Texans. He figures to back-up Tashaun Gipson at free safety per usual.

Rashad Greene
News
Greene (Achilles) has been placed on the injured reserve list, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Greene's season is now officially over, having suffered an Achilles injury last week against the Bills. He had been held without a catch for five consecutive weeks, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the Jaguars' aerial attack. The team promoted Shane Wynn from the practice squad to add depth at receiver.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Myles Jack
News
Jack (hip) was removed from the Jaguars' injury report and is set to play Sunday against the Texans.

Jack sustained a hip injury last week and was unable to take part in Wednesday's practice. However, he made a return on Thursday, eliminating any concern the rookie will miss any time.

Bryan Walters
News
Walters secured two of five targets for 26 yards and gained nine yards on a pair of punt returns in Sunday's 21-20 loss to the Texans.

Walters played the role of third receiver once again with Allen Hurns (hamstring) sidelined. The fifth-year veteran profiles mainly as a possession receiver and return specialist, and his sure hands and solid routes make him a trusted safety valve, albeit one with capped fantasy upside. Walters does have at least two catches in each of the last three games, as well as a Week 14 touchdown.

Yannick Ngakoue
News
Ngakoue (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Ngakoue's ankle injury which he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Broncos doesn't appear to be serious, so he figures to be available in Week 14 against the Vikings.

Blake Bortles
News
Bortles spent more than half of the 2016 season playing through a slight separation in his right shoulder, ESPN.com reports. Furthermore, he dealt with tendinitis in his right wrist during the latter portion of the campaign.

According to Bortles, he sustained a Grade 1 sprain to his right AC joint in Week 8 and aggravated the injury three games later, which marked the first mention of a shoulder concern during the season. However, after practicing fully to kick off Week 12 prep, Bortles sustained this activity level for the rest of the year. In a season in which he appeared to take a step back, especially when it came to his mechanics, these ailments may have been to blame. Nonetheless, he completed 59 percent of his passes for 3,905 yards while cobbling together a 23:16 TD:INT ratio in 16 contests.

Sen'Derrick Marks
News
Marks (triceps) returned to practice on Friday for the Jaguars' final day of OTAs, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

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.

Tashaun Gipson
News
Gipson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's divisional clash with the Titans.

Gipson has been day-to-day throughout the week, but will give it a go Sunday. The safety figures to reclaim his role as starter, but Peyton Thompson could see increased action if the team decides to monitor Gipson's reps.

Dan Skuta
News
Skuta (elbow) is active Sunday against the Vikings.

After being limited in practice all week, the veteran linebacker will attempt to play through the elbow aliment Sunday. He could see his reps closely monitored, in which case Myles Jack and Sean Porter may see expanded action.

Sean Porter
News
Porter (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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jared Odrick
News
Odrick (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jacksonville.com reports.

Odrick has dealt with a rash of ailments in 2016, the latest being a shoulder injury suffered in Week 11 against Detroit. He also dealt with triceps, quadriceps and ankle issues. Ultimately, the former first-round defensive end -- and third-most expensive player on the team this season -- managed just 12 tackles across six games. The Jaguars could save $8.5 million by cutting him in the offseason.
