  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Back from COVID list

    Chaisson (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Chaisson missed the final two games of the season after testing positive for the virus. The 2020 first-round pick had a disappointing season with 31 tackles (20 solo) and only one sack in 15 games. He'll enter his third season needing a significant improvement in order to live up to his draft position.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Shifts to COVID list

    Jacksonville placed Chaisson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Chaisson played a season-high 53 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday versus the Jets, but he's now sidelined on the COVID list. Fellow outside linebackers Josh Allen (illness), Lerentee McCray (illness) and Jordan Smith (illness) are also following the NFL's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Primed for starting role

    Chaisson (illness) registered a quarterback hit in 29 defensive snaps during Saturday's preseason loss to the Browns.

    The 2020 first-round pick missed June minicamp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he was ready for the start of training camp and is poised to start as an edge rusher for Jacksonville. Chaisson played in every game as a rookie last season but had a quiet campaign with 19 total tackles and one sack.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Absent from minicamp

    Chaisson was not able to attend minicamp after testing positive for COVID-19, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Chaisson is expected to return to his role as a starting linebacker for the Jags in 2021, but he'll need to pass through the league's COVID protocols before joining the rest of his teammates in preparation for the upcoming campaign.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Set for starting role

    Chaisson is listed as a starter for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    Chaisson will make his first NFL start of his career Sunday, assuming the role for the inactive Josh Allen (knee). Chaisson has been decent through the first four games of his career, accumulating seven tackles (four solo) and one sack over that span.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Returns to practice

    Chaisson (hamstring) is slated to participate in Thursday's practice, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Chaisson was limited to side work earlier this month due to a hamstring issue, but it looks as though he's already managed to return to full health. The rookie first-round pick should see plenty of chances to handle key snaps for Jacksonville's pass rush early in his career, provided he can remain on the field.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Dealing with injury

    Chaisson was forced to work out on the side during Wednesday's practice session due to a hamstring injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The good news for Chaisson and the team is that he's dealing with what's believed to be a minor injury, which isn't expected to force him to miss an extended period of time. Once fully healthy, the 20th overall pick in April's draft is expected to bolster the Jacksonville pass rush, potentially forming a dangerous pass-rushing duo with 2019 first-round pick Josh Allen.

  • Jaguars' K'Lavon Chaisson: Heads to Jags

    The Jaguars selected Chaisson in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 20th overall.

    Jacksonville continues to bolster its defense, spending both of its first-round picks on that side of the ball. While the CJ Henderson selection helps replace the hole left by Jalen Ramsey, the Chaisson pick should help bolster the edge should Yannick Ngakoue get traded. Chaisson is a standout athlete and that's his selling point as a projectable edge rusher with tools. However, Chaisson did not have the production that's common among first-round edge rushers. He had just 6.5 sacks in his final season at LSU, but sacks don't always paint the full picture. If Chaisson pans out, he and Josh Allen should comprise a dangerous pass-rushing duo in Duval.
