Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (thumb) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Minshew was considered questionable for Sunday's contest but won't be available for the fourth straight contest due to the thumb issues. Even if he suited up, the 24-year-old wasn't yet cleared to start and would have served as the backup to Mike Glennon. Instead, Jake Luton will operate as Jacksonville's No. 2 quarterback versus Cleveland. Minshew's return to practice this week potentially puts him in good position to reclaim the starting role against the Vikings next Sunday.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Coach Doug Marrone said earlier this week the 24-year-old won't be ready to handle starting duties this weekend, but he could be available to serve in the backup role to Mike Glennon. Minshew returned to practice as a limited participant this week and was ramping up his throwing, so if all goes well he could return to start at Minnesota next week. Jake Luton is primed to serve as Jacksonville's No. 2 quarterback Sunday should Minshew be unavailable.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Not ready for starting duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Minshew (thumb) won't be ready to handle starting duties this weekend versus the Browns, though the 24-year-old could serve as a backup to Mike Glennon, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

Minshew has been dealing with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament to the thumb on his throwing hand for nearly a month, missing three games along the way. He at least took a step forward last week by practicing in a limited fashion Wednesday through Friday and carrying a questionable tag into the weekend, but he was ultimately inactive for the Jaguars' 27-3 loss to the Steelers. Per John Shipley of SI.com, Minshew is slated to increase his throwing in practice this week, and if he demonstrates enough progress, he could be active as the backup over Jake Luton, who has been benched in favor of Glennon after starting the past three weeks. Assuming Minshew endures no setbacks and is able to progressively ramp up his activity, he should be on track to reclaim starting duties Week 13 in Minnesota, regardless of how Glennon performs against Cleveland.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Unavailable Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (thumb) is inactive Week 11 against Pittsburgh.

Despite working up to a questionable tag following a week of limited practices, Minshew was never expected to suit up for this contest. The Jaguars will proceed with Jake Luton as the starting quarterback, with Mike Glennon on hand in a backup capacity.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Unlikely to play Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (thumb), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, isn't expected to be available to play, John Oesher of the Jaguars' official site reports.

After sitting out Jacksonville's last two games with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament to his right thumb, Minshew was cleared to practice on a limited basis this week. While coach Doug Marrone indicated that while Minshew was gradually able to throw a little more each day this week, the quarterback still isn't 100 percent. Marrone has already named Jake Luton the team's Week 11 starter, so if Minshew ends up being active Sunday, he would merely be serving as an emergency backup. The Jaguars are expected to reassess their options at quarterback ahead of their Week 12 game against Cleveland.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Listed as questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars list Minshew (thumb) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Minshew saw some limited work at practice this week, but the team relayed earlier in the week that Jake Luton would be the starting quarterback against Pittsburgh. Unless there's been a change in that plan, Minshew will either be made inactive or serve as a backup Sunday.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Won't return Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Minshew won't be available to face the Steelers but may "throw a little" this week, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Minshew looks set to miss his third straight game while working to recover from multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his thumb, but it would at least represent a notable step forward if he's cleared to resume throwing. Jake Luton thus is bound for another chance to showcase his skill set under center, though Pittsburgh's defense will present a challenge for the rookie sixth-round pick. As Shipley has reported, Marrone previously has stated that Luton could hold on to the starting gig even when Minshew returns to full health, depending on the quality of his play.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: May not start when healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Doug Marrone hinted Wednesday that Minshew may not resume duties as the Jaguars' starting quarterback once he recovers from his right thumb injury, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Minshew hasn't been cleared to throw since being diagnosed Oct. 29 with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his thumb, so he'll be sidelined for a second straight game Sunday in Green Bay. In Minshew's stead, Luton will pick up another start after turning in a respectable outing in his NFL debut Week 9, completing 26 of 38 attempts for 304 yards, one touchdown and one interception while adding a 13-yard touchdown run in the Jaguars' 27-25 loss to the Texans. Marrone noted that a decision on which quarterback starts beyond Week 10 will hinge on how Minshew heals from the injury and how Luton performs against Green Bay.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Expected to miss another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Minshew (thumb) is "unlikely to be available" in Green Bay on Sunday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Minshew has yet to resume throwing as he works to recover from multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his right thumb, and while the Jaguars have yet to offer an official timeframe for his return, it looks like he's trending in the wrong direction for Week 10. If Minshew indeed can't go in Green Bay, rookie sixth-round pick Jake Luton will get another opportunity under center. Luton impressed in his first NFL action against the Texans on Sunday, as he threw for 304 yards and one interception while accounting for two scores (one passing and one rushing).

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Not yet throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said after Sunday's loss to the Texans that Minshew (thumb) has yet to resume throwing, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

The 24-year-old missed Sunday's contest while dealing with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his right thumb, and his outlook for the immediate future remains muddled. Minshew's practice participation later in the week should indicate whether the injuries have improved, but for now, he doesn't appear significantly closer to retaking the field. Rookie Jake Luton received the start versus Houston and completed 26 of 38 passes for 308 yards with two total touchdowns and one interception, so he figures to start again next week against the Packers if Minshew remains unavailable.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Fails to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minshew (thumb) didn't practice Wednesday.

Minshew has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans due to multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his right thumb, so his absence from practice doesn't come as any surprise. Rookie sixth-round pick Jake Luton appears set to start Week 9, with veteran Mike Glennon serving as his backup. The Jaguars haven't yet provided an official timetable for Minshew's return.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Ruled out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone relayed that Minshew (thumb) won't play Sunday versus the Texans, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

It was revealed following the Week 7 loss to the Chargers that Minshew has been dealing with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his right thumb since early October. He'll be shut down as a result, and rookie Jake Luton is expected to start against the divisional rival, in which case Mike Glennon would serve as the backup. There's no clear timeline for when Minshew will return. The second-year quarterback produced 1,855 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions while running for 122 yards and a score through the first seven games.

Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Unlikely for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars expect Minshew (thumb) to be inactive for the team's Week 9 game against the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Shortly after the Jaguars headed into their Week 8 bye, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Minshew was revealed to be dealing with multiple fractures and a sprained ligament in his right thumb after he was sent in for X-rays. While the team hasn't commented on Minshew's injury nor provided a timeline for his return, the second-year signal-caller doesn't look like he'll be ready to go coming out of the bye. The Jaguars are expected to have the other two quarterbacks on the roster, Mike Glennon and Jake Luton, compete in practice during the upcoming week before head coach Doug Marrone names a starter for the Nov. 8 game versus Houston.

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.
