Mickens was listed as questionable heading into the Jaguars' eventual 45-42 win over the Steelers in the divisional round due to the hamstring injury, with Jacksonville ultimately ruling him inactive for the contest. It's unclear if the injury was the primary reason behind Mickens' absence or if the team's improved health at receiver played more of a factor in the 23-year-old being scratched. Regardless, if Mickens does suit up Sunday in the AFC championship against New England, he'll likely see most of his action on special teams, as was the case in the team's wild-card round victory over the Bills.
Lewis, who caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in last weekend's playoff win over the Bills, will be a go Sunday against the Steelers. From a fantasy standpoint, Lewis is pretty touchdown-dependent, given that he topped 50 receiving yards just once over the course of the regular season. The tight end did log five TDs in 16 games, but that mark was boosted by an outlier three-TD output on Sept. 24.
Church played 65 of 66 defensive snaps Sunday, and he now has four interceptions this season, doubling his previous career high. Still, he's averaging just 4.5 tackles per game, which would leave him on the low end of fantasy safeties. However, with a meeting against a turnover-friendly Titans squad in Week 17, Church could vault himself into the top-tier fantasy realm.
Dareus missed consecutive practices earlier in the week while recovering from an illness, but returned to a full workload Friday. Assuming he avoids any type of setback, he looks good to go for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.
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.
With a somewhat thin offensive line heading into Week 5, the Jags did the smart thing by bolstering their offensive line depth.
After the Jaguars lost Allen Robinson to a torn ACL in Week 1, Lee became the de facto No. 1 option and enjoyed a relatively productive season in what was a conservative passing attack. Lee was targeted 96 times across 14 regular season games, just nine fewer than in 2016, when he appeared in all 16 contests. Lee will be a free agent entering the offseason, but the prevailing belief is that the Jags would like to bring him back at the right price. The question is whether another franchise in need of playmaking at the receiver position will be willing to pay up for Lee's services.
The rookie made an impact with his one reception, a 45-yard haul that took the ball down to the shadow of the Steelers' goal line with 11:22 remaining in the contest. Leonard Fournette was able to notch a three-yard touchdown run on the next play, giving the Jaguars a 35-21 lead at the time. Cole made significant strides in the latter half of the regular season in the wake of ankle injuries to Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee, posting 17 receptions for 327 yards and a touchdown over the final three contests. Now sharing secondary receiver duties with fellow first-year pass catcher Dede Westbrook in the postseason, Cole could potentially play an important role in next Sunday's AFC championship showdown against the Patriots.
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.
Omameh sat out of practice Wednesday due to illness but it seems like the guard has quickly recovered and should be all set for Sunday's AFC championship matchup with the Patriots.
Although he only recorded five receptions on the year, Koyack still averaged just over 26 offensive reps per game last season. The third-year pro enters the offseason as an exclusive-rights free agent.
Jones did not practice at all throughout the week, so his absence in Week 17 comes as no surprise, and the Jaguars have no reason to risk his long-term health with the playoffs approaching. Eli Ankou could see additional snaps at defensive tackle behind Marcell Dareus and Malik Jackson.
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.
King was on the Browns' active roster from Week 5 through Week 15 this season. He subsequently joined the Jaguars' practice squad after getting waived. His promotion Saturday indicates Blair Brown (ankle) may to be ready to go for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers, which would mean King could get some reps providing depth at weakside linebacker.
The linebacker has been playing through the painful core-muscle injury for the last few weeks and was unable to finish out the Jaguars' 10-3 win over the Bills in the wild-card round. Though he avoided an injury designation heading into the weekend after practicing fully Friday, Posluszny could cede more snaps than usual to Blair Brown on Sunday while he plays at less-than-full strength.
Brown injured his ankle during practice on Wednesday, ultimately leading to his questionable tag entering the day. He's been a backup throughout the season and likely will see his typical role against the Steelers, barring an injury to one of the Jaguars' starting linebackers.
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.
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.
Lambo joined the Jaguars in mid-October after Jason Myers struggled to open the season. It was arguably the 27-year-old's best season, as his 95 percent field-goal percentage marked a new career high. Under contract through 2019, Lambo will likely be the favorite to hold down the starting role in 2018.
Smith, who went undrafted out of Iowa in 2016, spent time with both the Colts and Raiders in 2017 but didn't log a single snap with either team. While he boasts impressive speed and decent size for his position, Smith likely faces long odds of sticking on the Jaguars' active roster into the 2018 campaign.
Ramsey appeared on the injury report after logging a full practice Wednesday. A leader in the Jaguars' secondary, his status will play a key role in Sunday's showdown with the Texans. If he should be ruled out, look for Tyler Patmon to see increased reps on defense.
Hurns helped Jacksonville try to ice the game up 20-17 late in the fourth quarter, converting a 2nd and 9 with a 20-yard reception up the middle of the field. It was a big performance in a losing effort for Hurns, who was quiet in Jacksonville's first two playoff matchups, and it might also represent Hurns' final game in black and teal. Hurns has missed 11 games since signing a big $40.6 million contract two years back and the Jaguars can cut him in the offseason without a cap hit. With Allen Robinson expected back in 2018 and rookie Keelan Cole showing himself to be a big-play threat, the $7 million saved in getting rid of Hurns could make the difference in landing or not landing a free-agent target such as Kirk Cousins.
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.
Linder missed the Jaguars' last three games while battling the illness, but the fact that he turned in a full workout during the team's first official practice session coming out of the bye week bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Bengals. If active for that contest, Linder would presumably take back his usual starting duties at center, with Tyler Shatley shifting to a reserve role as a result.
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.
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 caught as many passes, and for more yardage, on Sunday as he did in the entire regular season. More special-teams ace than useful back for much of the season, Grant was active in place of Chris Ivory on Sunday and ripped off catch-and-runs of 24 and 20 yards to set up Jacksonville's first touchdown of the game. Jacksonville is loaded at back with Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon, but Jacksonville's potential ability to get out from Ivory's contract in the offseason, Grant might get some more action in 2018.
Yeldon, who missed the team's wild-card win over the Bills this past weekend, is healthy enough to suit up Sunday. If he does, he'd re-enter the backup mix behind Leonard Fournette, who logged 21 carries for 57 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards against Buffalo. With Fournette clearly the team's lead back, Yeldon's fantasy utility is restricted to deeper PPR formats these days.
McCray came flying out of the gate this season, accumulating 1.5 sacks in Jacksonville's season opener against the Texans (had a total of 1.5 sacks through the first three seasons of his career). Although he has yet to make an appearance as a starting linebacker, McCray is regarded as a special-teams ace by coaches around the league. Jaguars special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis specifically targeted McCray when he became available this offseason, having witnessed his special teams prowess firsthand through their time together in Denver.
Westbrook's reception, receiving yardage and target totals were all team highs on the afternoon, as he accounted for nearly half of Blake Bortles' 12 completions and well over 50 percent of his 87 passing yards. The dynamic rookie recorded at least four catches in four of the seven regular-season games he suited up for, and he's likely to play an important role in the passing game once again during next Sunday's AFC divisional-round road matchup versus the Steelers.
Wells will return to his backup right tackle role, sitting behind Jermey Parnell on the depth chart.
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.
After missing Wednesday's practice with an unspecified ankle injury, Smith progressed to full-participant status by week's end and appears set to take on his usual workload Sunday.
After going undrafted out of Oregon State last spring, Cook latched on with Jacksonville and stuck with the team through the end of training camp before being cut loose. The 23-year-old will rejoin Jacksonville for its offseason program but faces similarly long odds to crack the roster in 2018.
Benn was placed on IR in order to make room for a few returning players. He failed to record a catch after hauling in one reception for 12-yards in the Jaguars' Week 1 victory over the Texans. His season will now come to a close unless he and the team come to terms on an injury settlement.
Thomas didn't play a regular season snap in 2016, and he was unable to earn a depth role on the Lions' roster.
Bouye now has an interception in five separate games this season. The Week 15 matchup with Houston is tough to project, though, since expected starting QB T.J. Yates has a small sample size to study with no starts in the last two seasons.
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.
Having not played a regular-season snap since his five-game Baltimore stint in 2015, where he recorded just three tackles, Lewis-Moore had a lot to prove in the preseason. He may be picked up for added competition on a practice squad, but don't expect much more than that.
O'Shaughnessy was a late addition to the injury report Friday but appears to be over whatever ailment he was dealing with. Short of a five-catch game in Week 16, which included a touchdown, O'Shaughnessy hasn't had much of any fantasy value all season. Expect him to have a limited role in the offense behind starting tight end Marcedes Lewis once again.
Strong tore his ACL in his Jaguars debut last Sunday in San Francisco. Given the late timing of his injury coupled with the lengthy recovery time of this particular diagnosis, it's unlikely Strong will be able to recover in time for the start of the 2018 campaign. His contract with the Jaguars ends at the conclusion of the current league year.
Fournette put the Jaguars up by 11 in the second quarter when he pounded the ball right up the gut and bulldozed through New England's front for a four-yard score. His impact from then on was minimal as the Patriots focused on taking away the run game and forcing Blake Bortles to throw the ball in disadvantageous downs and distances. The formula worked. Fournette is an athletic freak that saw a whopping 23.4 touches per game in the regular season and another 25.7 in the playoffs. His failure to average four yards per carry can be attributed, in large part, to the ability of opposing defense to key on him with Jacksonville's iffy pass offense. Look for Jacksonville to try to improve its pass offense in 2018 in order to open up more looks for its big power back.
The long snapper suffered the season-ending shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Chargers. The Jaguars signed Colin Holba on Tuesday to take over long-snapping duties.
Fowler exited Sunday's victory over the Steelers with an unspecified shoulder injury and wasn't cleared to return. However, his total absence from the injury report suggests he isn't dealing with anything severe and puts him fully on track to suit up for Sunday's AFC championship game in New England.
The Jaguars are thin at receiver heading into their Week 16 matchup against the 49ers. Thus, they created roster room to add another healthy receiver, which resulted in Pinkard's' exit. He will now be free to look for a new opportunity assuming he clears waivers.
Campbell is continuing on his tear, as he has 32 tackles (20 solo) and a league-high 10 sacks through seven games. Campbell's consistency makes him a solid IDP option in almost every matchup, and he should be deployed weekly after the Week 8 bye.
Payne suffered the hamstring injury in the team's Week 11 victory over the Browns. After sitting out practice Wednesday, the rookie has been able to participate in limited fashion the last two days. Both Lerentee McCray and Blair Brown would likely be called on for help providing depth at linebacker should Payne not be able to go Sunday.
Colvin, who landed on injured reserve after Week 15 due to an ankle injury, was seen wearing a walking boot during OTAs. However, it doesn't appear as if he'll be out of commission much longer, as Colvin is expected to be ready in time for training camp next month.
Robinson -- who turns 25 in August -- continues to bounce back from September surgery to repair a torn left ACL, but the wideout is confident that he'll be "back at 100 percent and relatively soon." Given that he's coming off a significant injury, it's unclear if Robinson will have to settle for a one-year, prove-it offer or land a more lucrative multi-year deal. Moreover, the Jaguars also could elect to use their franchise tag on Robinson, which would pay him approximately $16 million next season. Another team with loads of cap space could potentially swoop in with a big offer, but we suspect that ultimately Jacksonville will find a way to retain Robinson, who caught a total of 153 passes for 2,283 yards and 20 TDs over the course of 32 games in 2015 and 2016.
Henne was forced to sit out the Jaguars' final practice of the week Friday after coming down with the illness, but with a day off Saturday to recover, it appears as though the veteran signal caller is ready to reprise his normal role as the backup to Blake Bortles. The Jaguars' decision to keep third-string quarterback Ryan Nassib inactive indicates there isn't much concern about Henne's health.
Unavailable for each of the Jags' three playoff games to date, Ivory will again don street clothes as Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon handle the bulk of the RB reps Sunday.
Cann sat out last week's game against Cincinnati and was limited in practice this week. Now that he's active, he'll be expected to return to his normal role as a starting guard for the team.
Wilds is entering his third season in the league after going undrafted out of South Carolina in 2016. He didn't log a snap during the 2017 campaign after suffering a shoulder injury with the Browns in training camp and now joins a stable of Jacksonville running backs that has each of Leonard Fournette, T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory under contract in 2018.
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 exited Sunday's victory over the Texans with a foot injury, but his full participation in practice suggests that the issue won't be a concern moving forward.
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.
According to Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL, Jack was carted to the locker room, signifying that the injury could be serious. He came up with a huge play in the second half of Sunday's contest, stripping Dion Lewis and recovering the fumble. The talented linebacker finished the game with six tackles. Jack will have the entire 2018 offseason to recover before reporting to training camp in July.
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.
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.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Bortles dealt with an issue in the wrist of his throwing hand since December of 2016, but it didn't stop him from committing the fewest turnovers (16) in a given season in his career to date. Expected to make a full recovery, there remains some murkiness surrounding Bortles' status for the upcoming campaign, primarily related to the Jaguars' willingness to pay his fifth-year option worth nearly $19.1 million. The salary will kick in on March 14, but upon hearing Rapoport speak of the situation, the organization seems willing to see how Bortles operates for another year on a veritable prove-it deal. If Bortles stays put, the biggest question mark will be the pass catchers at his disposal, as Allen Robinson (knee) and Marqise Lee are both unrestricted free agents.
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.
Gipson rebounded from an aggravated foot that forced him to miss the team's first two practices of the week, staying on the field for all 64 of the Jaguars' defensive snaps during the AFC championship game. After Patriots receiver Danny Amendola slipped behind Gipson for the game-winning touchdown, the veteran safety later admitted In the locker room that the strain to his big toe "was the toughest injury [he has ever] had to play with," Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Gipson will now have the entire offseason to move past the issue. The 27-year-old, who logged 64 tackles and four picks this past season, is under contract with Jacksonville through the 2020 campaign.
