  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Returns from COVID list

    The Jaguars activated Smoot (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

    Smoot is now clear to return to team facilities, making him eligible to take the field for Sunday's season finale against the Colts. He has five sacks through 15 appearances.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Put on COVID list

    Smoot was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    That means the Jaguars' entire starting defensive line is on the COVID list ahead of Week 17. Jacksonville will likely call up replacements from the practice squad, but Roy Robertson-Harris and Adam Gotsis should be quite busy against the Patriots.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Enters sack column

    Smoot had three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Titans.

    Smoot had only three tackles across the first four weeks of the season, but he matched that total Sunday while playing a season-high 64 percent of the defensive snaps. The 26-year-old posted 5.5 sacks for the Jaguars in 2020, and he could reach a similar total this season while filling a rotational role at defensive end.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Not leaving Jacksonville

    The Jaguars are re-signing Smoot to a two-year, $14 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Smoot is coming off a career year, having notched 25 tackles (21 solo), 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery across 16 contests in 2020. Still, unless his tackle or sack totals dramatically increase next season, he won't have much value in IDP formats.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Leads defense in sacks

    Smoot had two solo tackles in the season finale against the Colts and had 25 tackles (21 solo) and 5.5 sacks in 16 games this season.

    The 25-year-old ended up leading Jacksonville in sacks and was the only player on the team to record more than 2.5 sacks this season. He also had two forced fumbles, but his sack total went down from 2019 despite playing abut 250 more defensive snaps. Smoot will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and is likely to fill a rotational role at defensive end wherever he lands in 2021.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Records six sacks in 2019

    Smoot had 17 tackles (12 solo), six sacks and one fumble recovery in 16 games this season.

    The 2017 third-round pick began the season without a sack in 24 career games, but he took advantage of increased defensive snaps in 2019. Smoot found success despite working as a rotational defensive end, and he could be in line for a larger workload in 2020 given the impending free agency of Yannick Ngakoue.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Solid in limited role

    Smoot had two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's home loss to the Saints.

    While playing just 20 of 66 defensive snaps in the game, Smoot made his presence felt, collecting his third sack of the season. His snap total limits his IDP appeal, and he has only collected eight tackles outside of his three sacks through six games. Smoot should see his usual depth role on the defensive line when he and the Jaguars take on Cincinnati in Week 7.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Plays only eight games

    Smoot had four tackles (three solo) in eight games for the Jaguars in 2018.

    Smoot had a decent rookie year with 20 tackles while playing in all 16 games but was limited to only eight games in 2018. The 2017 third-round pick served in a rotational role when active and is still looking for his first career sack. The Jaguars are likely to see some changes along their defensive line with their impending salary cap difficulties, and it will be up to Smoot to take advantage.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: On track to practice Monday

    Smoot (foot) is in line to practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    Smoot, who was the Jaguars' 2017 third-round pick, made 20 tackles (14 solo) in his rookie campaign. He'll work strictly in run defense again this season, as Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue have supreme pass-rushing skills. Unless there's an injury to the aforementioned pair, Smoot isn't a viable IDP pick.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Sidelined for Saturday's game

    Smoot (foot) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, Michael DiRocco of reports.

    Smoot will not even participate in the dual practices with Minnesota on Wednesday and Thursday, so it could be a somewhat serious foot injury the defensive end is dealing with. Expect another update on Smoot to come when regular practices start up again at the start of next week.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Dealing with foot injury

    Smoot was held out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Saints with a foot injury, Mike Kaye of reports.

    Smoot totaled 20 tackles in 16 games for the Jaguars in his rookie season, and he could have an opening this preseason to make an impression with Dante Fowler (shoulder) currently on the PUP list. The severity and specifics of the foot injury are currently unknown.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Picked by Jags

    The Jaguars selected Smoot in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

    Smoot (6-foot-3, 264 pounds) posted mediocre workout metrics at the Combine (4.77-second 40, 29.5-inch vertical), but he was a productive disruptor for Illinois the last two years, totaling 30 tackles for loss over that span. He'll likely serve as a rotational end.
