Jacobs (knee) was waived by the Jaguars on Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.
Jacobs landed on the Active/PUP list to begin camp while recovering from a torn ACL that he sustained in September of 2020, but he'll now be let go under a failed physical designation. The 25-year-old recorded three solo tackles across three games prior to suffering his injury last year.... See More ... See Less

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Shifts to injured reserve
Jacobs (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
The 25-year-old suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to injured reserve. Jacobs will miss the rest of the season and will focus his recovery efforts on being ready for offseason work in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Suffers torn ACL
Jacobs (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Jacobs had to be carted off the field Thursday, and Friday's MRI confirms a near worst-case scenario for the third-year pro. Jacksonville's defense has surrendered an average of 109 rushing yards per contest through three weeks, and the loss of Jacobs stands to further detract from the front seven's ability to stop the run. Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen appear in line to handle increased defensive snaps going forward.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Out for remainder of TNF
Jacobs (knee) was carted off the field during Jacksonville's first defensive drive of the game and he will be unable to return Thursday night against the Dolphins, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
This development thins out the middle of the Jaguars defense, forcing Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen into more prominent roles alongside remaining starting linebackers Myles Jack and Joe Schobert. Myles Gaskin chewed up Jacksonville's defense for 35 rushing yards on the opening drive as Miami went down for an immediate touchdown, and now the going may get even tougher for the Jaguars' front seven with the recent injury to Jacobs....

Jacobs had 42 tackles (31 solo), two sacks and one pass defensed in 14 games this season.
The 24-year-old missed two games with a hamstring injury as Jacksonville dealt with a multitude of linebacker injuries overall, but Jacobs was able to work in a rotational role for most of the season.

Jacobs had three tackles (two solo) and a sack during Sunday's 28-11 loss to Tampa Bay.
The 24-year-old is seeing more defensive work of late, playing 72 defensive snaps in the last two contests after seeing only 137 snaps through his first eight games of the year. Despite the increased workload, Jacobs' IDP value remains limited since he's not working in an every-down role.... See More ... See Less

Jacobs (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday.
Jacobs sat out the last two games with the hamstring issue but is good to go coming out of the bye week. The 24-year-old has three starts this season but mostly plays a rotational role on defense, as he's played over 40 percent of defensive snaps in only one of seven games.... See More ... See Less

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Battling injury
Jacobs (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.
Jacobs played just four defensive snaps but still managed a full special-teams workload in this past Sunday's win over the Bengals, so this injury appears to have surfaced over the past couple days. He's trending toward a questionable designation for Week 8's game against the Jets if he can't upgrade to full participation.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Gets first career sack
Jacobs recorded four tackles (one solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Texans.
Jacobs notched the first sack of his career during Week 2's loss to the Texans. The second-year linebacker played only 27 percent of defensive snaps (18), however, and he would need to earn a more consistent role to warrant fantasy consideration in IDP leagues.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Finishes with 21 tackles
Jacobs (quadriceps) had 21 tackles (16 solo) in 12 games during the 2018 season.
Jacobs landed on injured reserve after suffering the quad injury in early December, but before that had made three starts. That being said, the rookie seventh-round pick saw more than 20 defensive snaps only once, as he served in more of a rotational role even when starting. Still, it was a solid debut season considering his draft position, while the 23-year-old now enters his first full offseason in the league.... See More ... See Less
