Mickens will miss four to six weeks as a result of the injury. Dede Westbrook and Corey Grant may see more return duty in the meantime.
Meeks will presumably provide corner depth for Jacksonville, while also contributing where necessary on special teams. The 22-year-old rookie will be making his NFL debut in Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.
Church's sack was his first of the season and gives him 2.5 for his career. He and the rest of the Jaguars defense will look to maintain their strong play when they take on the red-hot Chiefs offense in Week 5.
Ankou has been a healthy scratch for each of the Jags' first five games now. The team has a strong defensive front, so he likely wouldn't be used much on defense anyway.
Dareus was expected to be back at practice this week, but he's back on the sidelines Tuesday instead. It's unclear whether Dareus suffered a setback, but his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week.
Chark was involved early with 38- and 30-yard receptions in the first half, but he was unable to secure his other two targets.QB Blake Bortles looked his way in the red zone late in the fourth quarter, but the pass was intercepted. Sunday could be a big first step for Chark, as it was the first time this season where he was actually a factor in the offense. The 22-year-old remains the No. 4 wide receiver -- as he still played only 25 of 83 offensive snaps -- but Sunday's performance could prove to be an important building block for the young receiver.
Tinker suffered a season-ending injury to the same knee he suffered a torn ACL on last season, but the specifics of this injury remain unclear. Matt Overton was signed and will serve as the Jaguars' long snapper in his absence.
Reed missed just one practice after injuring his knee in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings. The 26-year-old is in line to be LG Andrew Norwell's backup.
With Lee done for the season and the Jaguars not looking to add outside help at this stage, Keelan Cole, Donte Moncrief, Dede Westbrook and rookie DJ Chark are all expected to play key roles at receiver for the team this season. Per Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, Moncrief will probably be leaned on the most out of the gate to help fill the void created by Lee's absence, given his level of NFL experience.
Cole tied for the team lead in targets and failed to haul in just one ball that was thrown his way. Unfortunately, he did little outside of his long gain of 17 yards and came away with one of his lowest totals of the season. Cole has looked like a top receiver at times, but he's also surpassed 54 receiving yards just twice and has one touchdown to his name. He'll look to get back on track next Sunday against the Texans.
Eulls is likely stuck on IR all season unless he and the Jaguars agree on an injury settlement.
Koyack was set to spend his season on the sidelines before both he and the Jags reached an agreement on an injury settlement. Once his health is up to par he will be free to find a new opportunity.
Jones was added to the injury report as a non-participant at Thursday's practice, but he was able to return in full Friday. The 27-year-old should serve his usual role as a rotational defensive tackle for the Jaguars.
Parnell was a limited participant with the knee injury early in the week, but he was able to practice fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 32-year-old will have his usual starting role at right tackle for Jacksonville on Sunday.
The decision to place Robinson on season-ending IR was more of a formality than anything else. By doing so, Jacksonville opened up an additional roster spot. Robinson will likely begin rehab sooner than later, with his sights set on being ready for the 2019 season.
Richardson did not play in the preseason opener due to an unspecified shoulder injury. The injury appeared to have been minor as the rookie offensive tackle was good to go for Saturday's contest.
Brown played 13 defensive snaps and added seven snaps on special teams before leaving with the injury. The 24-year-old will have to clear concussion protocol before fully returning to practice.
Smoot, who was the Jaguars' 2017 third-round pick, made 20 tackles (14 solo) in his rookie campaign. He'll work strictly in run defense again this season, as Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue have supreme pass-rushing skills. Unless there's an injury to the aforementioned pair, Smoot isn't a viable IDP pick.
Seferian-Jenkins will thus be stuck on injured reserve for at least the next eight weeks, but the procedure won't spell an end to his season. The 26-year-old is believed to be facing an approximate recovery time of around six weeks. If his rehab goes according to plan, he'll likely be ready to return from IR when immediately eligible Dec. 16 against Washington, assuming Jacksonville wants to use one of its two designated-to-return spots on the tight end. In the meantime, James O'Shaughnessy and Niles Paul are likely to vie for additional snaps at the position.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
The Jaguars totaled 502 yards of offense Sunday but were unable to finish drives, ceding possession five times in Kansas City territory, including a pair of failed fourth-down conversions in the red zone. The Chiefs took a 20-0 lead into the half and continued to score, causing the Jaguars to press for touchdowns instead of field goals. Lambo has made all eight field goals and all 10 extra points through five weeks, but it remains difficult to trust the Jaguars offense to provide opportunities with the continued absence of Leonard Fournette (hamstring).
Smith was waived/injured by the Jaguars back in June and has been on IR since clearing waivers. The 25-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere after reaching an injury settlement with Jacksonville, although the specifics of the injury remain unclear.
The team's sixth-round pick in April's draft, Lee was shaky during the preseason. He was a long shot to make the roster in the first place since Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler are already on the squad.
Ramsey was initially given 50-50 odds to play when given the questionable tag Friday, but it was reported earlier Sunday that he was expected to play, so this is mostly confirmation. The 23-year-old won't have one of his tougher assignments Sunday, as the Cowboys continue to rely on RB Ezekiel Elliott to power their offense with a mostly anemic passing game.
After Charles agreed Tuesday on a one-year deal with Jacksonville, the team ruled lead back Leonard Fournette (hamstring) out for Week 6 a day later, allowing both Yeldon and Charles to temporarily move up a spot on the depth chart. Rookie Dave Williams was also added from the Broncos' practice squad to bolster Jacksonville's backfield depth, but he's not a serious candidate to immediately steals snaps from Yeldon and Charles, both of whom are more proven NFL options. With Fournette possibly out until after the Jaguars' Week 9 bye, Charles should get at least couple weeks to prove he can still contribute in the league, though it's expected that Yeldon will handle the bulk of the backfield touches in the interim. Despite his status as a four-time Pro Bowler, Charles is probably only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues, unless he cuts into Yeldon's workload more than anticipated.
Linder had been hampered by minor knee and back injuries earlier in the week as he failed to participate in Wednesday's practice, but he'll be slated to start at center against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Flowers cleared waivers earlier this week after being waived by the Giants. The 2015 first-round pick could find himself in a starting role relatively soon with starting left tackle Josh Wells (groin) placed on injured reserve, but Josh Walker is likely to fill in while Flowers gets his bearings with his new team.
With Leonard Fournette (quadriceps) sidelined in Week 15, Chris Ivory seemed like the prime candidate to handle any short-yardage work that would come about. However, after Ivory was unable to break the plane on carries from the one-yard line during the Jaguars' second drive and later on in the third quarter, Bohanon's number was surprisingly called, with the fullback converting both times. While the development was undoubtedly frustrating for those that started Ivory in season-long and DFS formats, Bohanon's two-touchdown performance may have bolstered his case for his first Pro Bowl trip. With only five carries and six receptions in 14 games this season, however, Bohanon obviously shouldn't be counted on for a repeat performance.
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.
Patmon has played in 24 career games across stints with the Cowboys and the Dolphins, recording 21 tackles and an interception. He's bounced around over the past year and will look to stick with the Jaguars as a depth corner and special teams player in 2017.
Grant suffered a Lisfranc injury during Sunday's 30-14 loss to Kansas City, leaving T.J. Yeldon to dominate playing time in the backfield. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) seemingly in line for at least one more absence, the Jaguars are left with little-known Brandon Wilds as the only healthy running back behind Yeldon. The 26-year-old Grant wraps up his fourth NFL season with just 40 yards on 13 carries (3.1 average) and 67 yards on nine receptions.
Herndon was inactive last Sunday and did not practice this week, so it's unsurprising the reserve cornerback will be unable to play this weekend. The undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt has five tackles for the season, but he hasn't recorded a statistic since Week 3.
With the performance, Moncrief climbed to the team lead in targets for the season. After Marqise Lee was lost for the season, there was some question in Jacksonville of who would emerge as the team's top target. Things seem to still be sorting themselves out, but Moncrief is coming on as of late with 11 catches for 185 yards in the past two weeks after just seven catches for 64 yards during the team's first three contests. Of course, the Jaguars' game flow probably helped him become more involved, but he might be worth a fantasy pickup in many formats. He takes on a stingy Dallas pass defense on Sunday.
Yeldon averaged a healthy 5.1 yards per carry, but the home team raced out to a big lead and caused the Jags to abandon the ground game. Given the game flow he disappointingly wasn't used often as a receiver, which he had been in weeks past. Yeldon still managed to compile 70 scrimmage yards in limited usage, which bodes well for him next week against the Texans if he reprises a featured role. Working against him is the possibility that Leonard Fournette (hamstring) could be ready to return, potentially putting a serious damper on his fantasy value.
The former Alabama standout was released from the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, and he quickly found a new team in Dallas' Week 6 opponent. Jacksonville previously signed Jamaal Charles on Tuesday to bolster its running back depth after Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Corey Grant (foot) were ruled out with injuries. Therefore, Scarbrough could be another injury away from joining the 53-man roster.
Westbrook tied for the team lead in targets, though nearly all his damage came on a 34-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He is now averaging 64.5 receiving yards per game, putting him on pace to top 1,000 yards over the course of a full season. Westbrook is an emerging player with potential as one of his team's top receiving weapons, but his consistency is still lacking at times. He'll look to follow up this effort next Sunday against the Texans.
With Paul -- who caught seven of nine targets for 65 yards in Week 5 -- hobbled, James O'Shaughnessy and David Grinnage are now the only healthy tight ends the Jaguars have available Sunday.
Wells was forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Chiefs after suffering the groin injury. The Jaguars signed 2015 first-round pick Ereck Flowers after he was let go by the Giants earlier this week to bolster their depth at offensive tackle. Josh Walker should start at left tackle Sunday at Dallas.
Smith's 13 tackles were his best of the season by a sizable margin. He's racked up 39 tackles through five weeks, putting him on pace with his previous seasons' average of 115 tackles. He and the Jaguars will look to bounce back with a win against the Cowboys in Week 6.
Luckily for the Jaguars, Bouye's sickness wasn't serious and he'll be able to return to action. Bouye will start opposite Jalen Ramsey again in 2018, coming off a season where the duo propelled Jacksonville's pass defense to a No. 1 ranking in terms of yards allowed per game (143.7).
Wilson has been dealing with a shoulder injury and was inactive for Sunday's win over the Steelers. The 23-year-old will likely resume his role as a reserve safety and special teams contributor if able to play against the Rams in Week 6.
Starting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed to injured reserve with a core muscle injury, leaving O'Shaughnessy and Niles Paul to serve as Jacksonville's tight ends. The two saw similar snap totals Sunday, but Paul was much more involved in the passing game, catching seven passes for 65 yards. The tight end position has yet to produce consistently for the Jaguars this season, and Seferian-Jenkins' absence seems unlikely to alter that for the better. O'Shaughnessy should see more opportunities, but could end up splitting time with Paul.
While such an outcome is hardly a lock, Fournette was able to run on the side during Friday's light workout, so he's clearly trending in the right direction. There had been previous speculation that Fournette might be held out through the Jaguars' Week 9 bye, but if his hamstring responds well in the coming days, he could see action sooner. In the meantime, T.J. Yeldon is in line to head the team's backfield Week 6, with Jamaal Charles and David Williams in reserve.
Overton briefly served as the Jaguars' long snapper last season before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, but he's apparently healthy as he rejoins the team. Long snapper Carson Tinker was placed on IR with a knee injury, prompting the team to sign Overton.
Fowler missed the first exhibition game because of a shoulder injury and the second one due to a suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. The 2015 first-round pick didn't have a successful debut, as he hit the quarterback once but failed to make a tackle.
Hayden last suited up in Week 2 as he continues to battle a toe injury, and there is no clear end in sight for his absence at this point. When healthy, Hayden should slot back in at cornerback for the Jaguars, working behind Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.
The loss of Campbell would be a huge loss for the Jaguar defense. Taven Bryan will see increased snaps in the meantime.
Payne sat out of Saturday's preseason game with his hip condition, but it appears to have been a minor issue. The 24-year-old will get most of his work on special teams in 2018 while backing up Myles Jack at middle linebacker.
As expected, with Corey Grant (foot) headed for injured reserve and Leonard Fournette (hamstring) still out for at least another week or two, Williams will join the Jaguars from Denver's practice squad to bolster the team's depth at the position. He will likely be the No. 3 running back for the time being with T.J. Yeldon and newly-signed Jamaal Charles operating as No. 1 and 2, respectively.
Shatley has started four games each of the past two seasons, including a three-game stint at center in 2017 when Brandon Linder was sidelined with an illness. He logged 384 snaps last season.
Kessler looked quite good in relief of starter Blake Bortles, and he is all but assured of serving as the Jaguars' No. 2 quarterback in 2018. Rookie sixth-round pick Tanner Lee remains the only other quarterback on the roster, which speaks volumes about the team's confidence in Bortles.
Jackson just recorded his first sack of the season in Week 5 but departed early in this contest. He'll be replaced by Abry Jones.
Lazard was scooped up as a free agent after going undrafted. Although he had some hype at the time, he was ultimately unable to earn a role on the team's 53-man roster. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver may see some interest on the wire due to his size.
Norwell began the week with a protective boot on his left foot but is good to go for Week 6, as expected. The 26-year-old has battled the foot issue for the last few weeks, but he has yet to miss a start this season.
Jack played 97.9 percent of the Jaguars' defensive snaps last season, but his role as the strong-side linebacker in the base defense -- alongside Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny -- wasn't especially conductive to tackle opportunities. With Posluszny retiring, Jack will slide over to a more favorable position in the middle while Blair Brown likely takes over on the strong side in the base defense. Given that he's also locked in next to Smith in nickel packages, Jack shouldn't have much trouble improving on last year's mark of 5.6 tackles per game. Smith and Jack may soon form the best linebacker duo in the NFL, if they didn't already last season. Jack's ankle injury from the playoffs doesn't seem to be an issue.
Walters, who was placed on IR last week due to a foot injury, was expected to compete for punt-return duties for the Jaguars if healthy. The 29-year-old has spent time with the Chargers, Seahawks and Jaguars throughout his career, but he'll look to catch on elsewhere upon his eventual return to full health.
The fifth-year cornerback was fighting for a special teams and depth role with the Jaguars. He had 23 tackles and one interception for the Chiefs in that role in 2017.
Ngakoue now has 3.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in his last two games, totaling 10 sacks and six forced fumbles on the season. Through 11 games, the second-year pro still has posted six games with zero sacks, which makes him most useful against weak offensive fronts. Indy comes to town in Week 13, and Ngakoue recorded 2.5 sacks against the Colts in their first matchup this season.
Bortles struggled mightily in this one, completing just 58 percent of his passes and averaging 5.7 yards per attempt. He chipped in as the team's second-leading rusher and connected with Dede Westbrook for a 34-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Bortles cut back on the turnovers after committing five last week against the Chiefs, but he was perhaps too conservative as he finished with a season low in yardage. He'll look to get back on track next week against the Texans at home, where he's averaged 306.3 passing yards over three games while posting a 6:2 TD:INT.
Davis is listed as the No. 3 free safety, so he'll likely stick to special teams in Week 1. If called upon, Davis is a capable safety, though, as he made 22 tackles, four pass breakups and one interception in seven games for the Rams last season.
The nature of Hungalu's situation isn't clear, but the linebacker is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.
The previously unspecified injury cropped up earlier this week and forced Harrison to miss some practice time. The rookie safety has impressed through training camp and the early preseason games, but is expected to mostly serve as a special teams contributor and rotational safety for the Jaguars. The severity of the hamstring injury remains unclear.
Gipson exited last Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with the hamstring issue, but he showed no issues at practice this week. The 28-year-old will reclaim his starting duties at free safety against the Cowboys.
The nature of Goolsby's injury isn't clear, but the tight end is now stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
