Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (shoulder) is not listed on the Jaguars' final injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Texans in London.

Linder played every snap against the Jets last week, and figures to be asked to do the same in Week 9 assuming he avoids any type of setback. Tyler Shatley is in line to fill in should Linder have any issues during the game.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Battling shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

Linder played every offensive snap in Sunday's win over the Jets but apparently sustained the shoulder injury during the contest. The 27-year-old may need to put in a full practice by Friday to avoid an injury designation for Week 9.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Sees first preseason action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) started at center in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins.

Linder received the start and played 19 offensive snaps in his first preseason action of the season. The 27-year-old landed on injured reserve in mid-November due to knee surgery but he appears good to go for 2019.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Linder is set for surgery after suffering a knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Colts, though the timetable for his recovery remains up in the air. Tyler Shatley is expected to see an increased workload in his absence.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Out for the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) will undergo season-ending surgery due to a knee injury sustained during Sunday's loss to the Colts, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Linder's knee injury initially did not appear that severe, but the 26-year-old is now expected to be placed on injured reserve in the near future. The starting center's injury is a significant blow for Jacksonville's running game, which just saw the return of Leonard Fournette. Expect Tyler Shatley to slot into the starting lineup during Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Expected to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) will not suit up against the Steelers on Sunday and could miss multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Linder suffered an undisclosed knee injury during a Week 10 loss to the Colts, and he continues to undergo testing. A timetable for the starting center's return remains uncertain, but it appears that Linder is in danger of missing a significant amount of time. As long as Linder remains sidelined, expect Tyler Shatley to draw the start at center.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Won't return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Linder was taken to Jacksonville's locker room for further evaluation, and has ultimately been ruled out to return. Expect an update on the starting center's health after the conclusion of Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to a knee injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Linder exited Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis late in the third quarter, so it may not necessarily reflect negatively on his health if he's unable to return. Expect Tyler Shatley to slot into the starting lineup as long as Linder remains sidelined.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee/back) does not carry a Week 5 injury designation after returning to full participation in practice Friday.

Linder had been hampered by minor knee and back injuries earlier in the week as he failed to participate in Wednesday's practice, but he'll be slated to start at center against the Chiefs on Sunday.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder was forced out of Sunday's game against the Jets with a back injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Linder exited Sunday's game midway through the first quarter, and is ruled out to return. Tyler Shatley will step in as Jacksonville's starting center.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Ready for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder is not listed on Friday's injury report for Week 2 against the Patriots.

Linder did not participate in Wednesday's practice and was limited Thursday, but it appears he is in no danger of missing the contest against the Patriots after logging a full session Friday. He should slot in as the Jaguars' starting center again Sunday.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Expected to sit out practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) is not expected to participate in practice Wednesday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Linder battled a knee issue late in the preseason, so there's a decent chance the two issues are related. More clarity on his status for Week 2 against the Patriots should arrive as the week progresses.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) was a full participant at practice Friday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Linder sustained the injury during the second preseason game in mid-August, but he has fully participated at practice throughout this week. The 26-year-old is set to begin the season as the Jaguars' starting center.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Returns to the field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) is a full participant in practice this week, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Linder was injured in the Jaguars' second preseason contest and was forced to sit out of the third game as well. However, the center is now back to full strength and will not be limited in practice this week ahead of Sunday's showdown with the Giants.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) did not participate at practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Linder suffered a knee injury in the Jaguars' preseason game against the Vikings and has yet to return to practice. It seems likely that the team would handle their starting center's recovery cautiously, and too little is known about the injury to assess its severity. If Linder were to remain sidelined beyond the preseason, it would be a significant blow to Jacksonville's O-line.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Sits out practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (knee) did not participate at practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Linder exited Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings after suffering the injury and did not return. The 26-year-old is unlikely to be rushed back if there is any concern, considering he's the team's starting center.

August 19, 2018 02:44 PM
Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Return questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder suffered a knee injury during Saturday's preseason game and is considered questionable to retake the field.

Since Linder is the team's starting center, it's unlikely the Jaguars would push him back into action unless he proves the knee to be sound.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (illness) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Linder missed the Jaguars' last three games while battling the illness, but the fact that he turned in a full workout during the team's first official practice session coming out of the bye week bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Bengals. If active for that contest, Linder would presumably take back his usual starting duties at center, with Tyler Shatley shifting to a reserve role as a result.

Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (illness) won't suit up for Sunday's game against the Colts, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Linder will miss his third consecutive game after failing to practice this week in any capacity. With the Jaguars heading into a bye after Sunday's contest, Linder will have nearly two weeks to prepare for the Jaguars' subsequent matchup Nov. 5 against the Bengals.

October 13, 2017 01:28 PM
Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Linder (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Linder will miss his second consecutive game, and Tyler Shatley will continue to fill in at center.
