Fowler recorded one strip-sack, which he recovered, across 19 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Patriots.
Fowler was reinstated this week after serving his one-game suspension, but did not see the field a ton in his first game back. However, he still made his presence felt in limited reps, delivering a huge strip-sack on Tom Brady early in the fourth quarter. Look for the defensive end to potentially see an uptick in reps this Sunday against the Titans.
The circumstances of the fighting that got Fowler suspended are unclear for the most part, but as a result, the defensive end will be absent from practice this week and, more importantly, be sidelined for Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings.
Fowler (suspension) is nursing a shoulder injury, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Fowler was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list late last week with an undisclosed injury, but the source of his discomfort is now known. The 2015 first-round pick is without a clear timetable for his return, but he's not eligible to play until Week 2 in any event after receiving a one-game suspension earlier this month for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Fowler was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list with an undisclosed injury Saturday, Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union reports.
The injury announcement comes one day after Fowler was handed a one-game suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, reportedly connected to a July 2017 arrest for alleged battery. The 23-year-old was dealing with an upper-body injury in late June, but it's currently unknown if this is an extension of the same issue or a new ailment. Fowler can be removed from the PUP list once medically cleared, but he will not be ready to take the field when training camp begins Thursday.
Fowler (upper body) has been suspended one game for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
This suspension is reportedly connected to a July 2017 in which Fowler was arrested for alleged battery. While the defensive end is still allowed to participate in training camp this summer despite being suspended, Fowler may be a limited participant as he recovers from an upper-body injury that impacted his availability for the Jaguars' offseason program.
