Gipson had 54 tackles (44 solo) and one interception in 16 games during the 2018 season.
Gipson has posted similar numbers in his two previous seasons with Jacksonville, and was once again a reliable contributor at free safety. The 28-year-old has started all 48 games since signing with the team in 2016, but his low tackle totals make him easy to avoid as an IDP option. Gipson remains under contract through 2020, but he carries a cap hit north of $9 million next season and could be cut with only $1.6 million in dead cap, per Spotrac.com. The Jaguars grabbed Ronnie Harrison (knee) in the third round of last April's draft, but he seems more suited to take over at strong safety following the in-season release of Barry Church. Jacksonville heads into 2019 hurting for cap space while coming off a massively disappointing season, so whatever it decides regarding Gipson's status with the team won't be overly surprising.
Gipson (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Texans.
Gipson cropped up on the injury report Thursday with the foot issue, but it appears to have been a minor problem. The 28-year-old should take up his usual starting post at free safety in the season finale.
Gipson appears to have picked up a foot injury in practice, the severity of which remains undisclosed. If the seventh-year pro is unable to suit up against the Texans in Week 17, expect Cody Davis to draw the start at free safety.
Gipson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Colts.
Gipson didn't practice to start the week but was able to participate in limited fashion Friday and earn a questionable tag. The seventh-year pro has 41 tackles and six pass breakups, but he only had three tackles in the Jaguars last meeting with the Colts in Week 10.
Gipson is questionable for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Colts with an ankle injury.
Gipson was a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to show enough Friday to earn the questionable tag. Jarrod Wilson is next up on the depth chart should the veteran safety be unable to play this week.
