Position Listing
Jaydon Mickens
News
Mickens (ankle) was waived by the Raiders on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Mickens was waived after being placed on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. The wideout spent all of last season on the Raiders' practice squad.

Marcedes Lewis
News
Lewis was held without a catch in the Jaguars' Week 2 loss to the Titans.

For the second straight week, Lewis was targeted twice but was unable to register a catch on an afternoon in which the Jags' passing offense struggled mightily. With Blake Bortles at the helm, Lewis can be safely ignored in standard-sized leagues, with his only real value coming as a potential touchdown-vulture in the red zone -- and even that might be optimistic. Since the start of the 2015 season (28 games played), Lewis has only 36 catches and one touchdown.

Barry Church
News
Church (back) is set to return to practice on Thursday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Church injured his back in the early stages of the Jaguars' offseason program, which prevented him from taking part of OTAs and minicamp. It appears the caution the team exercised has been positive given his expected return to the practice field Thursday. The veteran played his first seven seasons with the Cowboys before signing with the Jaguars this offseason. He projects to start at strong safety in Week 1.

Eli Ankou
No Updates
Carson Tinker
News
Tinker tore his ACL and will miss all of the 2017 season, Jaguars' public relations manager Tad Dickman reports.

Tinker suffered the injury during a non-contact portion of Wednesday's practice, and he'll need to undergo surgery. His injury leaves the Jaguars without their long-snapper of the past four years.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Chris Reed
News
Reed played the fourth-most snaps of any Jaguar in last week's preseason tilt against New England, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Reed ended last season on Injured Reserve due to a toe injury he suffered in December. He appears to have since recovered and return to his role as one of Jacksonville's top backups along the offensive line.

Marqise Lee
News
Lee hauled in seven of 12 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 37-16 loss to the Titans.

Lee and Allen Hurns (six catches for 82 yards and a touchdown) were the only Jacksonville receivers to make an impact, with nobody else recording more than three catches for 31 yards. Both did most of their damage with the game well out of hand, as quarterback Blake Bortles had only 41 passing yards at halftime. On the bright side, Lee's 12 targets and seven receptions both led the team.

Keelan Cole
News
Cole had two catches on three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Tennessee.

Playing without Allen Robinson (knee), the Jags' passing game predictably struggled for much of the afternoon, with Blake Bortles picking up much of his yardage late in the second half once the game was out of reach. In the absence of Robinson, as well as rookie Dede Westbrook (ankle), Cole looks to have emerged as Bortles' third option, though the undrafted rookie isn't an overly attractive fantasy option in an offense that's likely to continue to struggle.

Tyler Gaffney
News
Gaffney (undisclosed) was waived by the Jaguars on Friday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Gaffney will land on the team's injured reserve list if he clear waivers. The 26 year-old played in just one game for the Bills last season. His chances of making the team's final roster were slim.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Ben Koyack
News
Koyack caught his only target for a 30-yard gain in Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Koyack, Marcedes Lewis and Neal Sterling drew one target apiece in a game that saw the Jaguars attempt 34 passes. Although Koyack at least made the most of his lone opportunity, he's likely still slated for the No. 2 or 3 spot on the depth chart in an offense that doesn't figure to distribute many targets to its tight ends.

Patrick Omameh
No Updates
Abry Jones
News
Jones will sign a four-year, $16 million contract extension with the Jaguars, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

Jones has been with the Jaguars for the first four years of his career and they've opted to reward him with an extension after recording 32 tackles during the 2016 campaign. He ended up starting nine of 15 games and was more then a serviceable run stopper, so look for Jones to continue to play a significant role in team's defensive line rotation moving forward. Barring any changes prior to training camp, look for Jones to open the preseason as one of the Jaguars' two starters at defensive tackle.

Sheldon Day
News
Day (back) participated in practice Tuesday for the first time since earlier in August, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Day has been injured for the past few weeks, but could still make the final roster given he performs well throughout the rest of the preaseason and gets back to full health. He won't have much IDP value, as he's buried on the defensive line depth chart.

Jarrod Harper
News
Harper (concussion) reverted back to injured reserve after being waived/injured Saturday, Mike Kaye of WTLV in Jacksonville reports.

Harper's concussion looked to be a serious one, as he had to be carted off the field with his head immobilized in the team's preseason finale.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Jermey Parnell

Cam Robinson

Paul Posluszny
News
Posluszny will shift to strong-side linebacker this season to make room for Myles Jack at middle linebacker, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Posluszny has been a stronghold for Jacksonville at middle linebacker the past six seasons but will now make the change as the team ushers in a new era on defense. "It will be a change, but that's what's going to be best for the team so we're going to give it a shot," the 32-year-old linebacker said. The shift means Posluszny isn't likely to be involved in nickel packages, which would significantly cut down his playing time. Last season, he registered 133 tackles, three pass deflections, 1.5 sacks, and one interception through 16 games.

David Grinnage
No Updates
Blair Brown
News
The Jaguars selected Brown in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 148th overall.

Brown (5-foot-11, 238 pounds) is a smaller linebacker but one who was very productive on tough Ohio defenses. He also proved a standout athlete at the Combine, logging a 4.65-second 40 along with a 37-inch vertical, 124-inch broad jump and 6.92-second three-cone drill. This is a player who might start someday, even if the Jaguars depth chart is a little too crowded in the short term.

Dawuane Smoot
News
The Jaguars selected Smoot in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

Smoot (6-foot-3, 264 pounds) posted mediocre workout metrics at the Combine (4.77-second 40, 29.5-inch vertical), but he was a productive disruptor for Illinois the last two years, totaling 30 tackles for loss over that span. He'll likely serve as a rotational end.

William Poehls
No Updates
Jeremiah Poutasi
News
Poutasi was waived by the Jaguars on Monday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

The third-year pro took some reps with the first team throughout the preseason but ultimately failed to make the 53-man roster.

Justin Blackmon
News
Blackmon (suspension) was handed a one-year suspended sentence and probation Wednesday, stemming from a misdemeanor DUI, the Florida Times-Union reports.

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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Carroll Phillips
No Updates
Jason Myers
News
Myers hit a 43-yard field goal and converted his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Titans.

After missing a 39-yarder in Week 1, Myers responded with an encouraging, albeit quiet, Week 2. While his spot looked to be somewhat in jeopardy during the preseason, Myers now has a stronger grasp on the job, though that could always change if he goes through a rough period at any point in the season.

Jalen Ramsey
News
Ramsey (ankle) is active Sunday for the Jaguars' Week 2 game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

The Jaguars held Ramsey out of practice throughout the week, leading to some speculation that he might be sidelined for Week 2. After entering the day as a game-time decision, the second-year cornerback came out of pregame warmups without any significant limitations, so he'll likely be in store for a full slate of snaps Sunday. In the Jaguars' dominant Week 1 win over the Texans, Ramsey logged three tackles and broke up three passes.

Injury
Ankle - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Allen Hurns
News
Hurns (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

With Allen Robinson (knee) having landed on IR, Hurns is back on the fantasy radar, now that he's back in starting lineup along with fellow wideout Marqise Lee. Hurns was on the field for 88 percent of the Jaguars' snaps on offense in Week 2, en route to hauling in six of his seven targets for 82 yards and a TD in a 37-16 loss to the Titans. Hurns should be fine for Week 3 action, but a matchup against a stingy Baltimore defense is less than optimal.

Injury
Shoulder - Full Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Michael Bennett
News
Bennett (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Bennett suffered a pectoral injury in Sunday's game against the Titans and did not return. With Bennett now out for at least eight weeks, Dexter Fowler Jr. will likely take on a higher percentage of defensive snaps in his absence.

Injury
Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Brandon Linder
News
Linder signed a five-year, $51.7 million contract extension with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

This deal makes the 25-year-old the highest-paid center in NFL history. In the 2016 season, Linder made his move to center and proved he was one of the best players at the position right now. Players who are versatile enough to play multiple positions on the line effectively are easy choices to lock up long-term.

Tommy Bohanon
News
Bohanon signed a contract with the Jaguars on Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.

The Jaguars haven't utilized a fullback in two years but will break that trend by signing Bohanon, who was the lead blocker for Chris Ivory for three years with the Jets from 2013 to 2015. Coincidental or not, those three seasons were the most productive of Ivory's career.

Marquez Williams
News
Williams (undisclosed) reverted back to injured reserve after being waived/injured, Mike Kaye of WTLV in Jacksonville reports.

Williams' injury still hasn't been disclosed, but he'll be on the Jaguars' injured reserve until he is cleared to play again.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Tyler Patmon
News
Patmon signed a contract with the Jaguars on Monday, the team's official site reports.

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.

Corey Grant
News
Grant had a 13-yard carry in Sunday's 37-16 loss to Tennessee.

After being limited to special teams duties in Week 1, Grant got onto the field for three offensive snaps out of 64 on Sunday. The Jaguars are among the NFL's most run-heavy teams, ranking sixth in the league in rushing attempts through two weeks. The likes of Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory, however, will likely continue to make it hard for Grant to get in on the action.

Ryan Nassib
News
Nassib signed with the Jaguars on Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Nassib spent training camp with the Saints before being released prior to the start of the regular season. With starter Blake Bortles struggling through the first two weeks of the season, the Jaguars have likely brought in Nassib to add some pressure to Bortles. He's projected to slot in as the No. 3 quarterback behind Chad Henne.

T.J. Yeldon
News
Yeldon (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday for the Jaguars' Week 2 contest against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

According to O'Halloran, it's the first time in Yeldon's career that he'll be a healthy scratch. After sitting out the Jaguars' Week 1 win over the Texans with a hamstring injury, Yeldon returned to full practice this week and would have been available Sunday, but the Jaguars apparently came away satisfied enough with rookie Leonard Fournette's work on third downs in Week 1 to keep using him in passing scenarios. That makes Yeldon somewhat of a redundant depth piece, as he's not as strong of a between-the-tackles runner as Chris Ivory and doesn't offer the value on special teams that Corey Grant provides.

Lerentee McCray
News
McCray is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a knee injury.

McCray rarely plays defensive snaps behind Myles Jack, who recorded 14 tackles in the season opener. If McCray is unable to return, the effects will mainly be felt on special teams.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Brad Nortman
No Updates
Dede Westbrook
News
Westbrook underwent core muscle surgery Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Westbrook played through the injury during the preseason before being placed on injured reserve prior to Jacksonville's Week 1 contest against the Texans. He's a decent candidate to return from IR after Week 8, especially now that Allen Robinson (knee) is out for the season. The 2017 fourth-round pick led the NFL in receiving yards during the exhibition season and should have a top-three role in the Jacksonville wideout corps if he returns.

Injury

Josh Wells

Shane Wynn
News
Wynn (undisclosed) reverted back to injured reserve after clearing waivers, Mike Kaye of WTLV reports.

The specifics surrounding Wynn's injury are currently unknown, but he was waived/injured as a result. He'll now be on Jacksonville's IR until cleared to play.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Josh Walker
No Updates
Telvin Smith
News
Smith tallied a team high eight tackles (six solo) to go along with his first interception of the season in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Smith was one of the few bright spots in a tough matchup against an efficient Titans' offense. Although the defense struggled as a whole by giving up 37 points, the offense did not offer much help, as they consistently gifted the Titans with a short field to work with. Smith will look to carry his momentum into Sunday's battle with Baltimore in London.

Tim Cook
No Updates
Arrelious Benn
News
Benn signed a contract with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Benn was only targeted 10 times in 2016, catching five passes for a total of 116 yards and one touchdown. He'll look to secure a role as a depth receiver and special teams player once again in 2017.

A.J. Bouye
News
Bouye (illness) will play Sunday against the Titans.

The fifth-year corner played 79 defensive snaps against the Texans in Week 1, recording six tackles (five solo) and two pass breakups. His ailment kept him out of Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, but he was a full participant Friday.

Jarrod Wilson
No Updates
James O'Shaughnessy
News
O'Shaughnessy has been claimed on waivers by the Jaguars, CSN New England reports.

O'Shaughnessy, whom the Patriots acquired in a trade with the Chiefs during draft weekend, was beaten out for a roster spot by undrafted rookie Jacob Hollister. He'll boost the Jaguars' tight end depth, along with fellow reserves Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling, behind starter Marcedes Lewis.

Calvin Pryor
News
Pryor (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Jaguars on Monday.

Pryor joined the Jaguars only 10 days ago and was inactive for Weeks 1 and 2. It's unknown when exactly he injured his ankle, so the recovery timetable has always been murky. However, the 25-year-old will now need to reach an injury settlement with the team if he wants to play again this season -- unless the Jaguars are willing to use one of their IR-return designations on him, which is unlikely.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Jaelen Strong
News
Strong (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Strong is clearly behind Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns in the Jaguars' wideout pecking order, but given the rash of injuries that the team has dealt with at the position, there is an opportunity for the 2015 third-round to re-boot his career with his recent change of scenery.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
I'Tavius Mathers
Injury
Spine - Injured Reserve
Leonard Fournette
News
Fournette rushed 14 times for 40 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for 21 yards on five targets in Sunday's 37-16 loss to the Titans.

Jacksonville had to abandon the ground and pound approach after Tennessee won the third quarter 17-0, limiting Fournette's volume. He was bottled up for an average of 2.9 yards per carry, but salvaged his day by finding pay dirt from one yard out in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 37-9. Quarterback Blake Bortles looked inept until garbage time, so stacked fronts should quickly become the norm for the talented rookie.

Matt Overton
No Updates
Dante Fowler
News
Fowler (knee) was a full participant in the Jaguars' practice Thursday.

Fowler's status was uncertain after he was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he looks like he should be able to play Sunday against the Texans. The 23-year-old will start the season as a rotational piece along the Jaguars' defensive line.

Larry Pinkard
News
Pinkard signed a contract with Jaguars on Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.

Pinkard is a second-year receiver out of Old Dominion who's yet to appear in an NFL game. He's far from guaranteed a spot on the Week 1 roster and will thus need to fight for a depth receiver job or a role on special teams this summer.

Max McCaffrey
News
McCaffrey was signed to the Jaguars' active roster Tuesday.

McCaffrey spent the offseason with the Packers before being waived and ultimately signed with the Saints' practice roster. Now, with Allen Robinson (knee) on injured reserve, McCaffrey will join the Jaguars' unit as a depth option.

Calais Campbell
News
Campbell (undisclosed) returned to Jaguars' practice Saturday, NFL.com reports.

After nine seasons with the Cardinals, Campbell inked a deal with the Jaguars during the offseason. The veteran has been sidelined since the beginning of training camp due to an undisclosed medical issue. His return to practice Saturday indicates he is on track to take the field in Week 1. Campbell projects to start at defensive end.

Aaron Colvin
News
Colvin (foot) has been removed from the physically unable to perform list and will take part in Saturday's practice, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

Colvin entered training camp on the PUP list due to a season-ending foot injury he suffered in Week 15 of last year. He'll now be back in action and should be assumed to be healthy.

Allen Robinson
News
Robinson underwent surgery Monday to address a torn ACL in his left knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Jaguars wasted no time in having Robinson go under the knife after he sustained the season-ending injury on the team's opening drive of their Week 1 win over the Texans. He'll spend the next several months rehabbing his knee, but the expectation is that Robinson will be back at full strength for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Chad Henne
News
Coach Doug Marrone announced Saturday that Blake Bortles will enter the regular season as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, which means Henne will serve as his backup, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The situation was thought to be up in the air as recently as Thursday, so something must have happened to convince Marrone to give Bortles the starting job. Expect him to be on a short leash however, which means Henne could still potentially find his way to the field should Bortles struggle early.

Chris Ivory
News
Ivory carried six times for just 17 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Titans.

After the Jaguars racked up over 150 yards rushing as a team in Week 1, they looked more like last year's dysfunctional group Sunday, committing several turnovers and punting five times. With the game out of reach early in the second half, Jacksonville was forced to all but abandon the run, leading to reduced workloads for both Ivory and starter Leonard Fournette. If the Jags can regroup and return to Week 1's more conservative approach going forward, Ivory could have some value in deeper leagues, though at this point Fournette is far and away the back to own.

Darius Kilgo
News
Kilgo was claimed off waivers by the Patriots on Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

After playing in nine games for the Broncos this season the team opted to waive him prior to Week 12. Kilgo figures to help provide depth on the defensive line for the Patriots. Rookie D.J. Foster was waived to make room in a corresponding roster move.

Malik Jackson
News
Jackson injured his groin Sunday against the Titans and is questionable to return, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

With little time left in the game, it's unlikely Jackson has time to return. This means we'll likely have to wait until after the game, and possibly later in the week, to learn about his status going forward.

Injury
Groin - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Mychal Rivera
News
Rivera (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Friday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

An unspecified wrist injury doomed Rivera's first season with the Jaguars before it even started. He's likely stuck on IR through season's end.

Thompson (biceps) has returned to practice in full, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Thompson left practice early last week due to a bicep issue but it appears he's now past the ailment.

Rashad Greene

Greene (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Mike Kaye of WTLV reports.

Greene's been bothered by an undisclosed injury and hasn't taken the field in over a week. When healthy, look for him to reach an injury settlement with the team.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Myles Jack
News
Jack recorded 14 total tackles (eight solo), including 1.5 tackles for loss, in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Texans.

In his first regular-season start since taking over as the Jags' primary, three-down middle linebacker, Jack showed why some scouts had him pegged as a top-10 talent in the 2016 draft class. Jack helped hold the Texans to under 100 yards rushing as a team and nearly added an interception -- it was ultimately called back on a Dante Fowler penalty -- to his impressive line. While we have to find out if the Jaguars' defense can be as consistently dominant as it was in Week 1, Jack has the makings of a productive IDP option who should continue to rack up impressive tackling totals.

Bryan Walters
News
Walters (foot) was released from the Jaguars' injured reserve list Wednesday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

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.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Yannick Ngakoue
News
Ngakoue (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Ngakoue's ankle injury which he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Broncos doesn't appear to be serious, so he figures to be available in Week 14 against the Vikings.

Blake Bortles
News
Bortles completed 20 of 34 passes for 223 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Titans. He also rushed four times for 29 yards and lost a fumble in the 37-16 defeat.

Bortles failed to get anything going in the first half, throwing for just 41 yards with an interception. Things didn't get much better after halftime, as he was picked off again on the first subsequent possession and saw his team fall behind 30-3 in the fourth quarter. Bortles led two touchdown drives in garbage time, but that production did little besides appease fantasy owners. He can't be counted upon to produce unless Jacksonville gets down big, which makes Bortles a headache in both fantasy and real life.

Jalen Myrick
News
The Jaguars selected Myrick in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 222nd overall.

Myrick made the most of his Combine invite, running a blazing 4.28-second 40 to get his draft stock trending in the right direction. His tape and diminutive size (5-10, 200) point to Myrick being a slot corner at the next level, but his speed and elusiveness in the return game should help him crack the roster as a special teamer at the very least.

Tashaun Gipson
News
Gipson (ankle) is active Sunday for the Jaguars' Week 1 tilt with the Texans, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

After a disappointing inaugural season in Jacksonville, Gipson should have ample opportunity to improve his production in 2017 now that he's the undisputed starter at free safety following the offseason defection of Johnathan Cyprien. Gipson was limited during practice throughout the week due to the ankle injury, but isn't expected to see his snaps monitored in Week 1.

Ankle - Did Not Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Baltimore
Lafayette Pitts
News
Pitts signed an exclusive free agent tender with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Omar Kelly of the Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

A rookie in 2016, Pitts had three tackles in eight appearances. He'll be a depth secondary and special teams player once again in 2017, but he could earn some extra time on the field.
