Conley (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
The veteran wideout was unable to practice this week due to the hip injury and won't be suiting up Sunday versus Cleveland. DJ Chark (ribs) will also be sidelined, likely leaving Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and Keelan Cole to operate as Jacksonville's top wideouts.
Conley (hip) was limited during Thursday's practice session, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The 28-year-old receiver sat out Wednesday's practice session entirely, meaning this recent report strengthens the odds Conley is able to fight through his hip issue during Week 12. Conley recorded just one reception for 13 yards on four targets last Sunday against the Steelers, though no injury issue was reported postgame. He appears to be trending towards an active designation with a Week 12 home game against the Browns approaching.
Conley didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury.
Conley may have picked up this injury in last week's loss to the Steelers, as he logged a 64 percent snap share, his lowest since Week 7. DJ Chark (ribs) also didn't practice Wednesday, while Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returned to the field for the first time in two weeks. With uncertainty across the board at receiver, Conley could be in store for added volume this Sunday against the Browns if he gains clearance for the contest and neither Chark nor Shenault are active.
Conley caught one of four targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Jake Luton compiled only 151 yards on 37 pass attempts while throwing four interceptions, and there was minimal production from the offense besides James Robinson. Conley has played 37-plus offensive snaps in each of the past three games with Laviska Shenault (hamstring) banged up, and he has 12 catches for 108 yards during that stretch. The veteran can't be relied upon as a fantasy option, even with the increased playing time.
Conley secured four of his eight targets for 43 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Packers.
Conley tied DJ Chark with a team-high seven receptions last Sunday in a loss to Houston, though Chark produced a touchdown and 146 yards to the former Chief's 52 yards with no TD. This Sunday against the Packers, Conley stood as the stand-alone leader with eight targets, though both Keelan Cole (47 yards, one TD) and Chark (56 yards) outpaced him in receiving production. Conley has attracted eight targets in each of Jake Luton's first two career starts after only once reaching that number Weeks 1 through 7. If Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returns from injury ahead of next Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh, Conley could experience a reduction to his workload.
Coach Doug Marrone said he's comfortable with Conley filling in for Laviska Shenault (hamstring) against the Packers on Sunday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.
Conley saw his largest snap count since Week 3 last week against the Texans and had a season-high seven catches for 58 yards with the rookie Shenault exiting early with an injury. The veteran wideout isn't nearly as versatile as the rookie, but he can be a decent option on the outside. Conley showed good rapport with quarterback Jake Luton in the rookie's first start last week and should have a sizable snap share Sunday.
Conley caught seven of eight targets for 52 yards during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans.
Conley finished second on the team in all major receiving categories, topping 50 receiving yards for the second time this season. He did little of note outside his long gain of 21 yards but still displayed a solid rapport with replacement quarterback Jake Luton. While Luton is expected to start again next Sunday against the Packers and could continue to look Conley's way, the wideout shouldn't be considered a reliable fantasy option until he proves otherwise.
Conley caught one of two targets for a 28-yard touchdown in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.
The veteran receiver's first touchdown of the season gave the Jaguars their last lead of the afternoon late in the third quarter, as the Bolts went on to score the game's final 17 points. It's the second straight game in which Conley has caught only one pass, and he's seen just 10 targets from Gardner Minshew over the last four contests as the Jags' No. 4 wideout. Jacksonville could shake up its passing game during its Week 8 bye, however, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.
Conley caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's 34-16 loss to the Lions.
The 27-year-old and rookie Collin Johnson each played 15 offensive snaps, though the rookie didn't receive a look from Gardner Minshew. DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole have clearly established themselves as Jacksonville's top three wideouts, leaving Conley and Johnson to fill depth roles while the trio remain healthy.
Conley caught both his targets for 58 yards during Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Texans.
The 27-year-old again had a minor role in Jacksonville's aerial attack despite Gardner Minshew attempting 49 passes, though his 51-yard reception during the fourth quarter made it his most productive game of the season. Conley caught only one pass for six yards in the season opener, but over the last four games he's averaging three receptions for 46 yards. Conley could see some more playing time depending on the severity of DJ Chark's ankle injury, though he still only caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Chark's previous absence Week 3.
Conley caught three of four targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals.
The 27-year-old played only 21 offensive snaps during the contest, though his production remained in line with his numbers from previous weeks thanks to a 33-yard reception during the fourth quarter. Conley hasn't been involved enough in Jacksonville's offense through four games to warrant fantasy consideration, especially now that DJ Chark (chest) is back from injury.
Conley caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.
The 27-year-old led Jacksonville's wideouts in offensive snaps (53 of 66) and targets in the absence of DJ Chark (back/chest), but he was unable to turn it into significant production. It should have been as ideal situation for Conley with the Jaguars playing from behind most of the game, but RB James Robinson ended up being the only pass catcher to exceed 45 receiving yards. Conley has caught eight of 16 targets for 88 yards through three games and isn't a viable fantasy option, especially once Chark is back in the fold.
Conley caught four of seven targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.
The 27-year-old played only 16 offensive snaps in the season opener and caught one pass for six yards, but he was more involved Sunday as QB Gardner Minshew attempted 45 passes. Conley's seven targets tied for the team lead, though it's difficult to read much into that as Minshew spread the ball around, targeting nine different players at least three times. Conley hasn't shown enough consistent involvement in the passing game through two contests to be considered for fantasy purposes.
Conley caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Colts.
The 27-year-old was listed as a starter opposite DJ Chark on Jacksonville's first unofficial depth chart, but he played only 16 offensive snaps in the season opener, with Keelan Cole (33 snaps) and Laviska Shenault (31) both significantly more involved. Conley caught 47 passes for 775 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games last season, but his 2020 campaign is off to a rough start.
Conley has made "splash" plays throughout training camp, Gene Frenette of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Conley had a solid first season in Jacksonville and did enough for the team to pick up the 2020 option on his contract, but he doesn't appear especially likely to match last year's career highs of 866 snaps, 775 yards and 90 targets. The Jaguars also bring back DJ Chark, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, plus they added Laviska Shenault in the second round of the NFL Draft. While a strong showing this summer likely will allow him to retain a starting job, Conley won't necessarily have an every-down role, nor will he have job security if he fails to produce early on.
The Jaguars have exercised their option on Conley's contract for 2020, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
This was an easy decision for the Jags after Conley tallied a career-high 775 yards in the first season of a two-year, $4.6 million contract. His production largely was a matter of playing a ton of snaps for a team that ranked ninth in pass play percentage (61.9), but the price tag is friendly even if Conley is nothing more than a low-end starter. With DJ Chark serving as the top outside receiver and Dede Westbrook seemingly locked into a slot role, it won't come as any surprise if Conley faces competition for his starting job from a free-agent signee or a draft pick in 2020.
Conley caught three of six targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over Indianapolis.
Conley essentially ended up working as the Jaguars' No. 2 wide receiver in 2019, but his inconsistent production -- seven games with two catches or less -- meant he was an unreliable fantasy option. The 27-year-old totaled 47 receptions for 775 yards and five touchdowns, all setting or tying career-high marks. Conley is under contract for 2020 at a modest $1.8 million ($2.8 million cap hit), but his roster spot isn't overly secure since if he's released he would count only $500,000 against the cap. D.J. Chark stepped up as a reliable wideout for the Jaguars this season, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team attempt to upgrade the talent level behind him at the position.
Conley caught two of five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-12 loss to Atlanta.
The Falcons controlled the tempo for much of the game, but Conley helped jumpstart a would-be comeback early in the fourth quarter, busting up the sideline for a 42-yard touchdown. It was his third touchdown in his last two games after just two scores in his first 13 contests of 2019. He'll look to keep his scoring streak alive in the finale against the Colts, against whom Conley tied a season-high with six receptions and gained 58 yards in Week 11, albeit with Nick Foles throwing the passes.
Conley caught four of eight targets for 49 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Raiders.
The Jaguars were down 16-6 in the fourth quarter when Gardner Minshew found Conley for a six-yard TD with 5:15 left on the clock, and then the duo connected again on a four-yard score inside the final minute. The fifth-year receiver doubled his touchdown total on the season with the performance, and if DJ Chark Jr.'s ankle injury keeps him sidelined another week, Conley could see more red-zone looks next Sunday in Atlanta.
Conley secured one of three targets for seven yards in the Jaguars' 45-10 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.
As his final line implies, Conley was disappointingly a bit player in the passing attack Sunday, although it was a lackluster day for the offense as a whole. The speedster had dealt with an ankle issue earlier in the week, so perhaps that still affected him to an extent. Conley had notched no fewer than four receptions in four of the five games prior to Sunday, and he'll look to up his numbers back to that level at minimum in a Week 15 matchup against the Raiders.
