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.
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.
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.
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.
Davis played in 13 games as a rookie last year. Amerson has played in 31 games over the last two seasons.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Poutasi was only signed to Jacksonville's active roster back in November but will now miss the remainder of the season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Linder has been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury in recent weeks.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Although his trade from Jacksonville to Miami won't take effect until the new league year starts on March 9, Thomas won't be a stranger within the offensive scheme used in his new locale. Under the instruction of offensive coordinator Adam Gase in 2013 and 2014, Thomas posted 12 touchdowns for the Broncos in both campaigns, helping him land a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jaguars in March of 2015. Gase will soon be embarking upon his second offseason program with the Dolphins, only this time he'll have a familiar face to introduce to quarterback Ryan Tannehill. If fellow tight ends Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims both depart in free agency, Thomas will assume top TE duties and seek a bounce-back season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Odrick signed a five-year, $42.5 million deal with Jacksonville in 2015, and although he went on to lead the Jags with 5.5 sacks that year, he missed 10 games this past season due to a back injury, limiting him to merely 12 tackles and one sack. In cutting the 29-year-old, Jacksonville is set to save $8.5 million in cap room, which will result in Odrick hitting the free agent market immediately upon his release.
