  • Jaguars' D.J. Hayden: Could miss multiple games

    Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Hayden (knee) will miss "considerable time," Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. While it's not a clear timeline, it's safe to assume that Hayden won't play Week 12 against the Browns, and he could be placed on IR as well. It's yet another hit to the Jaguars' secondary that is already without rookie first-rounder CJ Henderson (groin) for at least two more games. Moving forward, Sidney Jones (Achilles) is in the mix to be the No. 1 cornerback along with Tre Herndon.

  • Jaguars' D.J. Hayden: Racks up eight tackles

    Hayden had eight tackles (seven solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Hayden's second game of the season was an unusually productive one, as the eight tackles are his highest total since he recorded 13 during Week 9 of the 2015 season. The 28-year-old had an unceremonious finish to the game, as he wiped out his own interception in the end zone with a facemask penalty, and he was then penalized for defensive holding as the Steelers scored the game-winning touchdown shortly thereafter. Hayden is likely to return to a more modest tackle total against the run-oriented Bills next week.
