Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Shifts to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

The 25-year-old suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to injured reserve. Jacobs will miss the rest of the season and will focus his recovery efforts on being ready for offseason work in 2021.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Suffers torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jacobs had to be carted off the field Thursday, and Friday's MRI confirms a near worst-case scenario for the third-year pro. Jacksonville's defense has surrendered an average of 109 rushing yards per contest through three weeks, and the loss of Jacobs stands to further detract from the front seven's ability to stop the run. Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen appear in line to handle increased defensive snaps going forward.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Out for remainder of TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (knee) was carted off the field during Jacksonville's first defensive drive of the game and he will be unable to return Thursday night against the Dolphins, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

This development thins out the middle of the Jaguars defense, forcing Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen into more prominent roles alongside remaining starting linebackers Myles Jack and Joe Schobert. Myles Gaskin chewed up Jacksonville's defense for 35 rushing yards on the opening drive as Miami went down for an immediate touchdown, and now the going may get even tougher for the Jaguars' front seven with the recent injury to Jacobs.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Starts seven games in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs had 42 tackles (31 solo), two sacks and one pass defensed in 14 games this season.

The 24-year-old missed two games with a hamstring injury as Jacksonville dealt with a multitude of linebacker injuries overall, but Jacobs was able to work in a rotational role for most of the season. The 2018 seventh-round pick likely will enter training camp in line for a similar role next season.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Tallies second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs had three tackles (two solo) and a sack during Sunday's 28-11 loss to Tampa Bay.

The 24-year-old is seeing more defensive work of late, playing 72 defensive snaps in the last two contests after seeing only 137 snaps through his first eight games of the year. Despite the increased workload, Jacobs' IDP value remains limited since he's not working in an every-down role.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Returns from hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

Jacobs sat out the last two games with the hamstring issue but is good to go coming out of the bye week. The 24-year-old has three starts this season but mostly plays a rotational role on defense, as he's played over 40 percent of defensive snaps in only one of seven games.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: To practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) will return to practice Monday after the bye, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

Jacobs has missed two straight with the issue and will be of help in a depth role if he can return. The 24-year-old hasn't played more than 29 snaps on defense in a game yet this season.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Won't play Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

Jacobs will miss a second consecutive game due to his lingering hamstring issue. The second-year pro will look to get healthy during Jacksonville's bye and retake the field for Week 11's tilt against the Colts.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Can't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) will not participate in Thursday's practice.

Jacobs sat out Week 8 against the Jets due to a lingering hamstring issue, and he appears to be trending toward another absence. With a bye around the corner Week 10, Jacobs may be targeting a return Nov. 17 versus Indianapolis.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Jacobs popped up on the injury report as a non-participant Wednesday and wasn't able to progress to a limited participant. The Jaguars are hurting for depth at linebacker with Najee Goode (foot) and Quincy Williams (hamstring) also ruled out.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Battling injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Jacobs played just four defensive snaps but still managed a full special-teams workload in this past Sunday's win over the Bengals, so this injury appears to have surfaced over the past couple days. He's trending toward a questionable designation for Week 8's game against the Jets if he can't upgrade to full participation.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Gets first career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs recorded four tackles (one solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Texans.

Jacobs notched the first sack of his career during Week 2's loss to the Texans. The second-year linebacker played only 27 percent of defensive snaps (18), however, and he would need to earn a more consistent role to warrant fantasy consideration in IDP leagues.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Finishes with 21 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (quadriceps) had 21 tackles (16 solo) in 12 games during the 2018 season.

Jacobs landed on injured reserve after suffering the quad injury in early December, but before that had made three starts. That being said, the rookie seventh-round pick saw more than 20 defensive snaps only once, as he served in more of a rotational role even when starting. Still, it was a solid debut season considering his draft position, while the 23-year-old now enters his first full offseason in the league.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Jacobs was unable to practice this week due to the quad injury suffered in last Thursday's loss to the Titans, and he will see his season come to a premature end. The rookie seventh-round pick had 21 total tackles in 12 games (three starts) while serving as a rotational linebacker, and he saw more than 20 defensive snaps in only one game.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Sits out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (quadriceps) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

Jacobs suffered the quadriceps in injury in last Thursday's loss to the Titans and is apparently still hampered by the injury. The rookie seventh-round pick will likely need to practice fully by Friday if he is to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (quadriceps) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Titans, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Jacobs seemed to be injured on Derrick Henry's 99-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and will now miss the rest of the game. Lerentee McCray is in line to see additional work at linebacker with Jacobs out.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Questionable with quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Titans with a quadriceps injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Jacobs appeared to sustain the injury on Derrick Henry's record-tying 99-yard touchdown run, where the rookie was thrown aside by the running back on his way to the end zone. Lerentee McCray will likely take on a larger role at linebacker if Jacobs remains out.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) is a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jacobs drew the start at strongside linebacker in Sunday's season opener but he logged just 11 snaps before exiting with an ankle injury. Monday's reports of him wearing a boot on the afflicted foot initially raised concerns that the injury was serious, but the linebacker's full participation Wednesday strongly suggests otherwise. Jacobs is thus right on track to play in this weekend's matchup with the Patriots.

Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Spotted in walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs had a walking boot on his left foot Monday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

The specifics of Jacobs' injury are unclear, but the walking boot is less than encouraging for his short-term status. A seventh-round pick in this year's draft, Jacobs quickly ascended the Jaguars' depth chart and posted two tackles in his NFL debut Sunday. He should be considered questionable for the team's Week 2 matchup against New England for the time being.
