Marcell Dareus: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (abdomen) returned to the field in Sunday's game against the Bengals, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

Dareus exited with the abdominal issue early in the second half but it's apparently a minor concern.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Leaves with abdominal injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus exited Sunday's game against the Bengals with an 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Dareus had the elbow issue crop up in mid-August and was a limited practice participant this week. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, so the 29-year-old's status remains up in the air.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Dealing with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus isn't participating at practice Monday due to an elbow injury, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

Dareus didn't play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Eagles, but it's not clear if that was because of the elbow issue or if he was just one of the many starters rested by coach Doug Marrone. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the veteran defensive tackle could see limited preseason reps even if it's a minor concern.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Civil lawsuit dismissed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hillsborough County (Fla.) circuit court dismissed a civil lawsuit for alleged sexual assault against Dareus, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

The decision came down Feb. 11, but the NFL has yet to make its own ruling on the matter, as Dareus may have violated the personal conduct policy. Dareus started 15 games for the Jaguars in 2018, accruing 32 tackles and one sack while playing 54.9 percent of the defensive snaps. Beyond Dareus and Abry Jones, Jacksonville doesn't have an experienced option at defensive tackle.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus agreed to restructure his contract, essentially ensuring he stays with the Jaguars for 2019, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Dareus was a 15-game starter for Jacksonville in 2018, accruing 32 tackles (23 solo), one sack and one forced fumble while averaging 37.5 snaps per game. He's not the same player that piled up 28.5 sacks for the Bills over the first four seasons of his carer, but the soon-to-be 29-year-old still has some value as a run stuffer.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Totals 32 tackles in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus had 32 tackles (23 solo), one sack and one forced fumble during 15 games this season.

Dareus had one of the less productive statistical seasons of his career but still helped the Jaguars rank fifth in total defense (311.4 YPG) in his starting role at defensive tackle. The 28-year-old carries a cap hit of almost $10.6 million in 2019 and could be released with zero dead cap, per Spotrac.com, making him a prime candidate to be a cap casualty with Jacksonville in dire need of cap space.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (illness) is not listed on the Jaguars' injury report Wednesday.

Dareus played a season-low 19 snaps in last Thursday's loss to the Titans as he was forced to exit the game due to illness. The 28-year-old appears fully recovered and should resume his starting role at defensive tackle for Week 15.

December 6, 2018 10:48 PM
Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus is dealing with an illness and is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Titans, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the game appears to have gotten away from the Jaguars, so the team may opt to give the veteran the rest of the night off. In his absence, look for Eli Ankou to see increased reps.

Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: No injury designation for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (back) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's Week 13 game against the Colts.

Dareus was forced to sit out last week's loss to the Bills but was able to return to practice this week and avoid an injury designation. The 28-year-old should reclaim his starting role at defensive tackle.

November 29, 2018 11:08 AM
Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Dareus missed Jacksonville's Week 12 loss to the Bills due to a back injury and continues to manage his recovery. It remains to be seen whether the 2011 first-round pick will suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Colts, but if Dareus were to miss anymore time, it would fall on Eli Ankou to once again slot into the starting lineup.

November 25, 2018 12:16 PM
Jaguars' Marcell Dareus: To sit Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dareus (back) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Bills.

Dareus was able to return to the practice field on a limited basis Friday but won't suit up after, all despite a "questionable" tag. His absence will leave the interior defensive line a bit thin for Jacksonville, as a banged-up Eli Ankou (calf) will need to take on a bigger role.
