Jaguars' Daniel Thomas: Eight tackles in start
Thomas had eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 50-10 loss to the Patriots.
The 2020 fifth-round pick made his first start of the season and played 88 percent of the defensive snaps with Rayshawn Jenkins (ankle) on injured reserve and Andrew Wingard (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Thomas should serve as the No. 3 safety in Week 18 if Wingard remains sidelined, otherwise he'll likely receive another start.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Daniel Thomas: Returns to practice
Thomas was reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Thomas was away from the team for just over 10 days and missed the team's preseason opener against the Browns. The 23-year-old appeared in 10 games last year before he landed on injured reserve with an arm injury, and he'll attempt to carve out a role in Jacksonville's defense across the final few weeks of camp....

Thomas (arm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Coach Doug Marrone said the arm injury will cause the 22-year-old to miss "considerable time," so a move to IR isn't surprising. Andrew Wingard is poised to take over starting duties at strong safety since previous starter Josh Jones (chest) is also on IR. Thomas will be eligible to return Dec. 20 at Baltimore, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Daniel Thomas: Set to miss multiple games
Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Thomas (arm) will miss "considerable time," John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Marrone handed Thomas, Josh Allen (knee) and D.J. Hayden (knee) the same timeline to return, which wasn't definitive but hints at a multi-game absence for each player. Thomas started his second game of the year in Sunday's loss to the Steelers because Josh Jones (chest) is on IR, and it appears the Jaguars will deploy their third starting strong safety in four games Week 12. Andrew Wingard is the top candidate to take Thomas' place.... See More ... See Less

Jaguars' Daniel Thomas: Jacksonville adds in fifth round
The Jaguars selected Thomas in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 157th overall.
The Jaguars are already loaded at safety, but Thomas (5-foot-11, 215 pounds) presented a compelling value this late in the draft. The Auburn product has a dense frame and slightly above average athleticism to go with it (4.51-second 40, 37-inch vertical). The Auburn defense was among the best in the SEC the last two years, both of which featured leading contributions from Thomas.... See More ... See Less
