  • Marcell Dareus: Becomes free agent

    The Jaguars have declined to pick up the 2020 option for Dareus (abdomen), making him a free agent, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    By letting Dareus go, the Jaguars will save $20 million against the salary cap in 2020. Dareus ended the 2019 season on injured reserve after undergoing core muscle surgery in October. He finished the year with 13 tackles and 0.5 sacks through six games. The timeline to return from his surgery was 4-to-6 weeks, so he should be ready to sign with a new team immediately.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Finishes season on IR

    Dareus (abdomen) spent the final 10 weeks of the season on injured reserve and finished 2019 with 13 tackles (eight solo) and a half-sack in six games.

    Dareus underwent core muscle surgery Oct. 24 and was expected to face a 4-to-6 week recovery timeline, but he never returned from injured reserve. The 29-year-old has a $9.5 million club option for 2020 and could theoretically remain in Jacksonville, but the option carries a $22.5 million cap figure, meaning the team is likely to decline the option and take a $2.5 million dead cap hit instead.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Lands on injured reserve

    Dareus (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Dareus underwent core muscle surgery Thursday and was expected to be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, but the move to IR gives him at least eight weeks of recovery time. The 29-year-old could be designated to return for the final couple weeks of the season, assuming his recovery goes as planned. Taven Bryan lines up to take over his starting role, while the Jaguars signed Akeem Spence to bolster their depth on the defensive line.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Scheduled for surgery

    Dareus will undergo core muscle surgery on Thursday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    It's a tough blow for the Jaguars defense, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier in the week that undergoing core muscle surgery would leave Dareus out for 4-to-6 weeks. Taven Bryan is in line to see an expanded role at tackle in the absence of Dareus.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Set for limited practice

    Dareus (abdomen) will practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

    Dareus was injured during Sunday's win over the Bengals and returned to the game, but the injury could be more serious. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Dareus will be checked out by a specialist in Philadelphia, who will determine if he needs surgery. If surgery is necessary, Dareus will miss four to six weeks. Taven Bryan and Dontavius Russell are waiting in the wings in case Dareus misses any time.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Leaves with abdominal injury

    Dareus left the game early in the third quarter and is questionable to return to the contest. Taven Bryan should see increased work at defensive tackle in his absence.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Gets to QB

    Dareus logged three tackles (one solo) and a half-sack in Thursday's win over the Titans.

    Dareus registered his first sack of the season in this game. He's not known for getting to the quarterback -- he hasn't exceeded 3.5 sacks since the 2014 campaign -- so this was an added bonus. Dareus will look to continue the success in Week 4's game versus the Broncos.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Ready to go Sunday

    Dareus (elbow) will play in Sunday's game versus the Texans, J.P. Shadrick of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    Dareus will start at defensive tackle in his 2019 debut. He was a strong run-stopper, and his abilities will be called upon again against the Texans, whose backfield -- Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson -- averaged 7.4 YPC in Week 1 versus the Saints.

  • Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Not suiting up Week 1

    Dareus (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Chiefs.

    Dareus sported a questionable tag coming into Sunday after dealing with his elbow issue since mid-August, and it's now confirmed he'll have to wait until at least Week 2 to make his season debut. The veteran's run-stuffing presence will be missed against a new-look Chiefs ground attack that now features LeSean McCoy and promising rookie Darwin Thompson in addition to versatile holdover Damien Williams.
