Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Torn ACL confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Follow-up tests conducted on Westbrook's knee confirmed that he suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers, ending his season, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

The Jaguars placed Westbrook on injured reserve Monday, leaving the team with five receivers on the active roster. The season-ending setback comes at a tough time for Westbrook, who was bound for free agency this offseason. Given that he may not be back to full health for the start of the 2021 season, he could remain unsigned deep into the summer. Westbrook's stock had already dropped steeply before he suffered the ACL tear, as the 26-year-old had essentially been squeezed out of Jacksonville's rotation at receiver following back-to-back 60-catch campaigns. He was active for just the second time all season Sunday, playing all 11 of his snaps on special teams.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed Westbrook (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jacksonville reportedly fears that Westbrook tore his ACL during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, so his stint on IR may last the rest of the season. The 2017 fourth-round pick made the most of his contributions in the return game in three 2020 appearances, and he's set to become a free agent in 2021.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of his knee injury, which the Jaguars fear to be a torn ACL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Westbrook will miss the remainder of the 2020 season if the results of his MRI indeed point to an ACL tear. The 2017 fourth-round pick has been largely relegated to return-man duties this season, so the largest impact of his absence would likely come in the form of Chris Claybrooks taking over on both punts and kickoffs.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Leaves game with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jaguars PR Director Tad DIckman reports.

Westbrook was carted off the field and promptly ruled out, so early indications suggest the injury is serious. Expect the team to relay an update on the wide receiver's status once more information becomes available.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Remains inactive Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook is listed as inactive Sunday against Tennessee.

This is the second consecutive week Westbrook will serve as a healthy scratch, as an offseason shoulder injury led him to miss a large portion of training camp, and he appears to be continuing to work his way back. Even when ready, Westbrook will face hefty competition in a wide receiver group currently led by DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Working back from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Westbrook, who was a healthy scratch Week 1, is working his way back after missing much of training camp, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Westbrook spent a significant amount of training camp sidelined due to a bruised shoulder, and it looks as though his inactive status Week 1 simply came due to not having had enough time to acclimate to new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden's scheme. The fourth-year pro should handle a role on offense once he's fully up to speed, but he may not end up with much fantasy relevance while competing with Keelan Cole and Chris Conley for targets behind DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Healthy inactive Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Listed as the No. 5 receiver on Jacksonville's unofficial depth chart, Westbrook already looked headed for a smaller role in 2020, but his inactive status for the season opener comes as something of a surprise. Rather than having Westbrook suit up as a depth option at receiver, rookie Collin Johnson will dress as Jacksonville's fifth wideout, with the coaching staff perhaps viewing the fifth-round pick out of Texas as someone who can make more of an impact on special teams.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (shoulder) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Westbrook has spent the last two weeks as a limited practice participant due to a shoulder injury, but he now looks back to full health. Rookie second-round pick Laviska Shenault (undisclosed) is also off the injury report, however, which muddles Westbrook's path to targets in Sunday's season opener against the Colts. He's listed behind DJ Chark, Shenault, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole on Jacksonville's unofficial depth chart.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Listed as No. 5 WR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (shoulder) was listed as the No. 5 wide receiver on the Jaguars' unofficial depth chart Monday.

Westbrook hasn't practiced at full speed in more than two weeks, so that may play a factor in the demotion. However, rookie Laviska Shenault (undisclosed) has been banged up, too, and he's listed higher than Westbrook. It's still just an unofficial depth chart, but it's clear Westbrook doesn't have the guaranteed role on this offense that DJ Chark and Chris Conley, who are both listed starters, have secured in training camp.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

After missing a week and a half of practice, Westbrook now appears on track to be ready for Week 1 against the Colts. He may still need a full practice before he's cleared to play, but he'll have some time to make that happen over the next 10 days. Westbrook's role is perhaps the biggest concern, as the Jaguars appear to have quite a crowd at wide receiver. There's even been some speculation that Westbrook, Chris Conley or Keelan Cole could be shopped for a trade.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Not practicing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook will not practice Saturday due to a shoulder injury, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Westbrook missed only one game last season despite showing up on the injury report with shoulder/neck issues since mid-October. While the reported training camp injury isn't deemed serious, it's a troublesome issue nevertheless, considering Westbrook's nearly season-long battle with shoulder issues in 2019.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Shows chemistry with Minshew
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook connected with Gardner Minshew multiple times during Thursday's practice, John Oehser of reports.

Westbrook handled 73 percent snap share last season and finished second on the team with 101 targets, but he was limited to a 66-660-3 receiving line in 15 games, failing to live up to preseason breakout hype. It was DJ Chark who had a big season instead, locking himself in as the Jags' No. 1 receiver for the foreseeable future. Westbrook still figures to get slot snaps early this season, but he could be facing a challenge from rookie second-round pick Laviska Shenault. And with Chris Conley and Keelan Cole also on their roster, the Jags might consider rotating three or four receivers behind Chark.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Caps off season with score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook had seven catches (eight targets) for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Colts.

Westbrook paced all Jacksonville receivers in receptions and yardage Sunday after failing to eclipse 25 yards over his three previous contests. The 25-year-old took a back seat to sophomore sensation D.J. Chark, finishing the 2019 campaign with 66 catches, 660 yards and three touchdowns. Westbrook would be in line to start again next season if Jacksonville does not add to its receiver corps, but the team's inconsistent quarterback play limits his upside.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Cleared for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (neck/shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

Westbrook was listed as questionable but will suit up for the season finale. The 26-year-old has been minimally involved with only 10 catches for 44 yards over the last three games, so he'll look to get back on track in Sunday's divisional matchup.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (neck/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Despite practicing fully Wednesday and Thursday, Westbrook is one of six players listed as questionable by the 5-10 Jaguars, suggesting he may have taken a step back with his activity Friday. Those relying on Westbrook in fantasy contests will want to verify his status ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, but even if cleared to play, the 26-year-old won't necessarily represent a bankable producer. Over the past two weeks, he's hauled in only half of his eight targets for a combined 19 yards while also rushing once for a seven-yard gain.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Listed as questionable this week

Westbrook (neck/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Westbrook is one of six players listed as questionable by the 5-10 Jaguars and his status will be worth verifying in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. Of course the fact that he's coming off back-to-back two-catch efforts (for a combined 19 yards) makes Westbrook a speculative fantasy lineup option in Week 17, in any case.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Non-factor in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook caught two of four targets for five yards and returned one punt for seven yards during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Westbrook has been a complete non-factor over the past two games, catching only four passes for 19 yards despite playing 53 and 43 offensive snaps, respectively. The 26-year-old had 49 catches for 544 yards and two touchdowns through 11 games, but he's provided minimal production down the stretch as the Jaguars offense struggles to score.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Struggles in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook caught two of four targets for 14 yards and added a seven-yard carry in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Raiders.

Even with DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) inactive, Westbrook still got his lowest target volume since Week 8 and did little with the balls that were sent his way. The third-year receiver will be a risky fantasy option next Sunday on the road against the Falcons, whether Chark returns to the lineup or not.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Cleared for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (shoulder) practiced fully Friday and won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Raiders, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Banged up in the aftermath of the Week 14 loss to the Chargers, Westbrook was limited in the Jaguars' first two practices of the week before erasing any concern about his health by logging a full workout Friday. With Westbrook now cleared to play Sunday, he'll likely be in store for an increased target share with No. 1 wideout DJ Chark (ankle) ruled out for the first time all season. Fellow receivers Chris Conley and Keelan Cole will also be asked to step up in Chark's absence.

Jaguars' Dede Westbrook: Remains limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Westbrook (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Westbrook emerged from last week's loss to the Chargers with a shoulder injury, perhaps explaining why his snap share dropped to 67 percent, down from 79 and 86 percent the previous two weeks. On the other hand, he was still catching passes deep into garbage time of the blowout, so the shoulder issue presumably isn't anything too serious. Westbrook's ability to log limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday suggests he should be ready for Sunday's favorable matchup with the Raiders, whereas fellow Jags wideout D.J. Chark (ankle) hasn't been able to practice.
