  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Healthy scratch Week 18

    Bryan (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Bryan will finish the campaign with 15 tackles (10 solo) and two sacks in 15 games. The 2018 first-round pick may have played his last game in Jacksonville, as he totaled 5.5 sacks in four years with his rookie contract set to expire, and it's difficult to see the team attempting to re-sign him.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Records two sacks

    Bryan had two sacks during Sunday's 9-6 win over the Bills.

    Bryant entered Week 9 with only 3.5 sacks in 55 career games, but he brought down Josh Allen twice Sunday despite playing only 20 of 67 defensive snaps. The 2018 first-round pick has played a rotational role on the defensive line all season, and it remains to be seen if the multi-sack performance provides any boost to his playing time.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Activated from COVID list

    Bryan (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

    Bryan began training camp on the non-football injury list for an unspecified reason before he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list in early August. The 25-year-old was at practice Sunday for the first time this year but wasn't in pads as he eases his way back into action, Jamal St. Cyr of WJXT reports.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Shifts to COVID list

    Bryan (undisclosed) was transferred to the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Bryan was already on the non-football injury list with an unspecified issue, but he'll now need to be away from the team until he clears the COVID protocols. The 25-year-old should revert to the NFI list once cleared.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Assigned to NFI list

    The Jaguars placed Bryan on the non-football injury list Wednesday with an unspecified injury, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

    Bryan appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars last season and played 46 percent of the defensive snaps, totaling 18 tackles and a half sack. The Jaguars declined his fifth-year option for 2022, making this a pivotal season for the 2017 first-round pick.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Fifth-year option declined

    The Jaguars declined Bryan's 2022 team option Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Bryan is now set to become a free agent when his rookie deal expires after the upcoming season. The No. 29 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft has struggled to break into a full-time role along the Jaguars' defensive line through his first three seasons in the league. He appeared in all 16 games for Jacksonville in 2020, but he was on the field for 46 percent of the defensive snaps and produced 18 tackles (10 solo) and 0.5 sacks.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Set for Week 10 start

    Bryan will start Sunday's game in Green Bay with Doug Costin (concussion) ruled out, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

    Bryan lost his starting role to Costin, an undrafted rookie, after Jacksonville's Week 8 bye, but he'll get another chance to handle a full workload against the Packers. The 2018 first-round pick has just 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks on the season, though, making him a low-upside fantasy option in IDP formats.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Not on injury report

    Bryan (knee) is not listed on Jacksonville's injury report.

    Bryan was previously described as week-to-week, but his absence from Wednesday's injury report suggests the 2018 first-rounder should be good to go for Sunday's season opener against the Colts.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Week-to-week

    Bryan (knee) has been dealing with a bone bruise he suffered in practice last Saturday and is week-to-week as a result, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

    The 2018 first-round selection will play an integral role on the Jaguars' defensive line given the departures of Al Woods (COVID-19 opt-out) and Rodney Gunter (retired) this offseason. In 16 games last season, Bryan recorded 33 tackles (18 solo), two sacks and a forced fumble.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Knee injury

    Bryan suffered a knee injury during Tuesday's practice, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    The nature and severity of Bryan's injury remains undisclosed at this time, though Reid notes that he remains out. The 2018 first-round pick could have the opportunity to take a step forward if healthy in 2020, after having played a rotational role to this point in his career.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Secures second sack

    Bryan had four tackles (three solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Colts.

    The 2018 first-round pick started eight of the final nine games of the season in place of Marcell Dareus (abdomen) and finished 2019 with 33 tackles (18 solo), two sacks and one forced fumble. Dareus has a club option for 2020 and fellow starter at defensive tackle Abry Jones is also under contract, so Bryan could return to a rotational role next season.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Slotting into starting lineup

    Bryan is expected to draw the start at left defensive tackle versus the Jets on Sunday, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

    Bryan will draw the start in place of Marcell Dareus (abdomen), who is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks due to core muscle surgery. The 2018 first-round pick has played a rotational role to this point, notching eight tackles (four solo) and one sack across seven contests.

  • Jaguars' Taven Bryan: Quiet rookie campaign

    Bryan totaled 20 tackles (13 solo) and one sack during 2018.

    Bryan served in a reserve role for most of the season, but in the season finale, he recorded his first career sack as he tied his highest defensive snap total (32) of the year. Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue are likely to return as the Jaguars' starting defensive ends, but some playing time could open up with defensive tackle Malik Jackson potentially ending up a cap casualty.
