Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Dealing with thumb injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew underwent X-rays on his right thumb earlier this week that revealed multiple fractures and a sprained ligament, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

According to the report, Minshew has been dealing with discomfort in his thumb since Oct. 11 against the Texans, but the Jaguars didn't know about the injury until this week. Minshew will have a Week 8 bye to aid his recovery, but Schefter notes that the Jaguars aren't certain Minshew will be available for the team's Week 9 rematch with the Texans on Nov. 8. Next up on the depth chart at quarterback are Mike Glennon and Jake Luton.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Has so-so showing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 14 of 27 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns while rushing four times for 21 yards during Sunday's 39-29 road defeat to the Chargers.

Prior to the game, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Minshew's job security was thinning, and he didn't exactly help his cause with this Week 7 performance. While he tossed multiple touchdowns for the fifth time and avoided throwing a pick for the third occasion in seven games, he matched his season low in passing yards, and his 51.9 completion percentage stands alone as his worst in a single contest on the campaign. The Jaguars have a bye week on tap, so coach Doug Marrone will have time to evaluate Minshew before making a decision on a Week 9 starter under center. Behind Minshew, Mike Glennon and rookie sixth-rounder Jake Luton are the next players up at quarterback in Jacksonville.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Job security loosening
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew is in danger of losing Jacksonville's starting quarterback job if he continues to struggle in Sunday's game against the Chargers, multiple sources tell Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

While neither of the other two signal-callers on the 53-man roster (Mike Glennon and Jake Luton) represent long-term solutions behind center, coach Doug Marrone could be willing to make a change at the position if Minshew is unable to help Jacksonville end its five-game losing streak Sunday. At the very least, Minshew will likely need to keep the offense running smoothly through the first three quarters, which has largely been a challenge this season. During the five-game slide, Minshew has completed 65 percent of his passes for eight touchdowns and 6.9 yards per attempt, but he's put up a fair amount of his production in garbage time and has turned the ball over eight times (five interceptions, three lost fumbles).

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Two turnovers in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 25 of 44 pass attempts for 243 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a lost fumble in Week 6 against the Lions. He also added three rushes for 14 yards and another score.

After a dismal start to the game, Minshew salvaged his day in the second half by finding the end zone twice. His first score came on the ground when he scrambled out of the pocket and evaded a defender for a six-yard rushing touchdown. With five minutes remaining in the game, he tallied his second touchdown on a swing pass to James Robinson from 14 yards away. For the season, Minshew has now recorded multiple touchdowns in five of his six starts. Volume has also been on his side, as he's attempted at least 40 passes in each of his last five games. However, Minshew and the team may be in for a slower-paced game in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Tops 300 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 31 of 49 pass attempts for 301 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against Houston. He also chipped in 18 yards on four rushes.

Minshew attempted a season-high 49 passes, but he wasn't particularly efficient by averaging just 6.1 yards per attempt. His longest completion of the day was a 51-yard deep shot to Chris Conley, though he also connected on a pair of completions that went for more than 15 yards with Laviska Shenault. For the season, Minshew has at least two passing scores in four of his five starts and topped 300 yards on three occasions. He'll face a positive matchup against the Lions in Week 6.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Tops 350 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 27 of 40 passes for 351 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals. He added two carries for nine yards.

After throwing an interception on the opening drive, Minshew made amends with an 11-yard touchdown to DJ Chark to grab a 7-3 lead late in the first quarter. Unfortunately for the Jaguars, they didn't get back into the end zone again until Minshew's two-yard score to Chark with 6:14 left in the game. The second-year quarterback has thrown for 1,138 yards and an 8:4 TD:INT heading into his team's Week 5 trip to Houston.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Numbers go for naught in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 30 of 42 passes for 275 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday. He also rushed three times for 22 yards and lost a fumble.

Minshew had one of the better stat lines you'll see for a quarterback on the wrong end of an 18-point decision. The second-year gunslinger once again displayed above-average accuracy while averaging 6.5 yards per attempt, but he found himself frequently under duress while taking four sacks and 10 hits overall. Minshew's first turnover, a third-quarter fumble at his own seven, was particularly costly and came on one of those sacks, while the second occurred late in the contest with Jacksonville trying to tack on a meaningless touchdown. Despite Thursday's so-so fantasy effort, Minshew does still sport solid numbers in that regard through his first three games, as he owns a 6:2 TD:INT and has quickly amassed 787 passing yards. He and his teammates will look to regroup ahead of a favorable Week 4 road matchup against the Bengals on Sunday. Oct. 4.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Comeback falls short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 30 of 45 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions and had four carries for 19 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to Tennessee.

The 24-year-old was near perfect in the season-opening win against the Colts and found plenty of success through the air versus the Titans, though he did have the two giveaways Sunday. Minshew threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to overcome a 13-point deficit, but Tennessee kicked a late field goal to take a late lead and Minshew subsequently threw a fourth-down interception with less than a minute left. He's completed 49 of his 65 pass attempts for 512 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions through his first two games of the season. He has a Thursday night matchup with the Dolphins in Week 3.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Dismantles Colts' secondary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew competed 19 of his 20 pass attempts for 173 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1 against the Colts. He also chipped in five rushes for 19 yards.

Minshew didn't have to throw much as the Jaguars surprisingly found themselves leading the Colts. However, when he took to the air, he dissected the opposing secondary with only one of his attempts falling incomplete. He also delivered a trio of touchdowns, coming from six, 15 and 22 yards. Minshew will look to maintain this type of performance in Week 2 when the Jaguars take on the Titans.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Moved to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars activated Minshew from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday morning.

Placed on the list two days prior, Minshew has now passed the necessary tests to be reinstated to the active roster. He's the unquestioned starting quarterback in Jacksonville, where Mike Glennon, Jake Luton and Joshua Dobbs are expected to compete for backup work.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Lands on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed Minshew (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

After the Jags sent Nick Foles to Chicago back in March, Minshew had no impediments to the starting QB gig in Jacksonville. However, he's now either tested positive for COVID-19 or recently been in close contact with someone who did. NFL teams aren't allowed to reveal which one is the case, but Minshew has to pass the requisite number of tests before he's allowed in the team's facilities.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Becomes uncontested starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew is the uncontested No. 1 quarterback in Jacksonville after the team traded Nick Foles to the Bears on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Jaguars took back a fourth-round draft pick in exchange for Foles, who had been expected to battle Minshew for the top job throughout training camp and the preseason. Minshew burst onto the scene as a rookie and put together an impressively competent season, highlighted by a 21:6 TD:INT. The 23-year-old also showcased an ability to spark Jacksonville's offense via his athleticism, logging 67 rush attempts for 344 yards. Minshew is now set to enter camp as the Jaguars' clear starter, with Joshua Dobbs as his backup.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Primed for competition with Foles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Minshew, Nick Foles and Joshua Dobbs will compete for the Jaguars' starting quarterback job this offseason, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

A report from early January suggested Foles would enter the offseason program as the top QB, though it's common sense that Minshew will at least have a shot at the job after his unexpectedly competent rookie season. Dobbs, on the other hand, isn't likely to see many first-team reps. The battle between Foles and Minshew will dominate headlines in Jacksonville throughout the spring and into the summer.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Not listed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew won't enter the 2020 offseason as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

This shouldn't come as a major surprise after Minshew's inconsistencies to end the season. Save for a sterling Week 17 finale in which the rookie quarterback completed close to 70 percent of his passes and threw for almost 300 yards and three touchdowns, a dismal stretch to start December nearly curtailed any sort of positive momentum Minshew built up during his prolonged audition as the Jaguars starter. It's worth noting head coach Doug Marrone also declined to list Nick Foles as the starter, suggesting both players would be capable options next season, although the Jaguars would pay close to $34 million in dead cap space should they opt to cut the veteran signal caller in lieu of Minshew. As a result, this situation feels like one of the very few "real" quarterback competitions to monitor throughout the offseason, as Minshew's cap number ($632,904) and surprise performance from the sixth-round pick throughout most of 2019 all but guarantee him a shot at the starting gig next year.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Minshew Mania ends on high note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (shoulder) completed 27 of 39 pass attempts for 295 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Colts.

Minshew provided one of Week 17's biggest surprises when you consider he entered the game nursing an injured shoulder while also coming off of his worst performance of the season last week against Atlanta (13 of 31 for 181 yards). Filling in for the injured Nick Foles to begin the year, the 2019 sixth-round pick created a huge buzz with some strong fantasy performances coupled with his unorthodox sense of style, thus creating 'Minshew Mania.' The Jaguars signed Foles to a huge four-year, $88 million contract this past offseason, money that could dictate giving him another chance to start in 2020, but Minshew showed the team that he is a capable NFL quarterback (60.6 completion percentage, 3,271 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and six interceptions in 14 games), and he appears to have a higher fantasy ceiling due to his ability to chip in some rushing stats (344 rushing yards).

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Ready for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's season finale against the Colts.

Minshew was considered questionable due to the bothersome right shoulder, but he'll once again play through the injury. The 23-year-old will look to finish his rookie campaign on a strong note after completing only 13 of 31 passes in Week 16.

December 27, 2019 05:24 PM
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Deemed questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars list Minshew (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Minshew's right shoulder bothered him heading into last weekend's loss to the Falcons, but he entered the contest without an injury designation. The Jaguars' decision to list him as questionable ahead of the season finale suggests his shoulder is at least a little more of a concern this week, but no reports have surfaced at this point suggesting that Minshew is truly in jeopardy of sitting out. The rookie has at least been able to get on the practice field in some fashion throughout the week, logging limited workouts Wednesday through Friday.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The shoulder issue previously limited Minshew for the first two practices of last week, but he turned in a full practice Friday and entered Sunday's 24-12 loss against the Falcons without an injury designation. With the Jaguars offering no indication that Minshew experienced a setback coming out of that contest, he'll likely take every rep in the Jaguars' final practice of Week 17 and make his 12th start of the season in the finale versus the Colts.

December 26, 2019 11:28 AM
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Limited on first practice report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.

Minshew managed to suit up without an injury designation Week 16 despite initially practicing in a limited fashion due to the same issue. If things progress as usual, he'll suit up Sunday against the Colts and draw the start at quarterback. Since replacing Nick Foles as Jacksonville's top option under center in Week 14, Minshew has completed 55.7 percent of his throws for 5.6 yards per attempt and a 4:0 TD:INT.

December 22, 2019 07:20 PM
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Inefficient in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew completed 13 of 31 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-12 loss to Atlanta. He added 36 yards on seven carries.

Minshew was off all game but tried to lead a comeback in the fourth quarter down by multiple scores, connecting with Chris Conley on a 42-yard bomb that cut the lead to 12. The outcome may have been different had DJ Chark held onto a would-be touchdown midway through the quarter. The Minshew Magic has worn off over the past month as the rookie passer has averaged just 172.8 passing yards per game over his last four contests and has accounted for multiple touchdowns in just one of those games. Minshew will conclude the campaign against Indianapolis' 21st-ranked pass defense.
