Position Listing
Dee Delaney
No Updates
Jaydon Mickens
News
Mickens broke his ankle in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Injury
Ankle - Out for Week 7 vs. Houston
Quenton Meeks
News
Meeks was promoted to the Jaguars' active roster Saturday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Barry Church
News
Church recorded three tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Jets.

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.

Eli Ankou
News
Ankou (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Marcell Dareus
News
Dareus (pectoral) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

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.

D.J. Chark
News
Chark caught two of four targets for 68 yards in Sunday's blowout loss to the Chiefs.

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.

Carson Tinker
News
Tinker was placed on injured reserve Friday with a knee injury, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Chris Reed
News
Reed (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Marqise Lee
News
Lee, who was officially placed on IR on Monday, is slated to undergo surgery to repair his left knee, which was injured in preseason action Saturday, the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Keelan Cole
News
Cole caught four of five targets for 41 yards during Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys.

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.

Kaleb Eulls
News
Eulls (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

Eulls is likely stuck on IR all season unless he and the Jaguars agree on an injury settlement.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Ben Koyack
News
The Jaguars and Koyack (undisclosed) came to terms on an injury settlement Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

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.

Injury
Abry Jones
News
Jones (illness) will not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans.

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.

Jermey Parnell
News
Parnell (knee) won't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

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.

Cam Robinson
News
Robinson (torn ACL) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Will Richardson
News
Richardson played 12 snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings.

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.

David Grinnage
No Updates
Michael Dunn
No Updates
Blair Brown
News
Brown is in the concussion protocol after Thursday's preseason game against the Saints, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

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.

Dawuane Smoot
News
Smoot (foot) is in line to practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
KC McDermott
No Updates
Pharoah McKever
No Updates
Zach Conque
Injury
Nick DeLuca
News
Deluca joined the Jaguars' 90-man roster Tuesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

DeLuca, an undrafted free agent, was most recently waived by the Titans. He will now look to earn a role providing depth at linebacker for the Jags, as well as helping out on special teams.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery Tuesday to address the core-muscle injury that resulted in his placement on injured reserve, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

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.

Injury
Abdomen - Injured Reserve
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.

Josh Lambo
News
Lambo converted both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chiefs.

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).

Tevaun Smith
News
Smith (undisclosed) was waived off the Jaguars' injured reserve Friday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
Tanner Lee
News
The Jaguars signed Lee to their practice squad Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

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.

Jalen Ramsey
News
Ramsey (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game at Dallas, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Jamaal Charles
News
The Jaguars plan to keep Charles active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, with the 31-year-old expected to fill a part-time role behind starting running back T.J. Yeldon, the Associated Press reports.

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.

Brandon Linder
News
Linder (knee/back) does not carry a Week 5 injury designation after returning to full participation in practice Friday.

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.

Ereck Flowers
News
Flowers signed a contract with the Jaguars on Friday.

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.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Tommy Bohanon
News
Bohanon parlayed both of his goal-line carries into touchdowns in Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans.

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.

Leon Jacobs
News
Jacobs had a walking boot on his left foot Monday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

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.

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 (foot) will be placed on injured reserve and won't have a chance to return this season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Tre Herndon
News
Herndon has a hamstring injury and was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

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.

Injury
Hamstring - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Donte Moncrief
News
Moncrief picked up 76 yards while catching six of 15 passes during Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chiefs.

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.

T.J. Yeldon
News
Yeldon carried eight times for 41 yards and caught three of five targets for an additional 29 yards during Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys.

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.

Lerentee McCray
News
McCray re-signed with the Jaguars on a one-year contract Friday, Mike Kaye of the First Coast News reports.

McCray appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars last season but saw almost all of his playing time come on special teams. He'll likely serve in a similar capacity going forward.

Bo Scarbrough
News
Scarbrough was signed to the Jaguars' practice squad Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

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.

Dede Westbrook
News
Westbrook caught three of five targets for 38 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 40-7 loss tot he Cowboys.

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.

Niles Paul
News
Paul (knee) exited Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site

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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
Josh Wells
News
Wells (groin) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

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.

Injury
Groin - Injured Reserve
Josh Walker
No Updates
Telvin Smith
News
Smith recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

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.

Logan Cooke
No Updates
A.J. Bouye
News
Bouye (illness) is in line to practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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).

Jarrod Wilson
News
Wilson (shoulder) was a full participant at the Jaguars' practice Wednesday.

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.

James O'Shaughnessy
News
O'Shaughnessy caught three of his six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chiefs.

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.

Leonard Fournette
News
Though Fournette (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, coach Doug Marrone relayed Friday that the running back has a chance to play next week against the Texans, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Hamstring - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Matt Overton
News
Overton (shoulder) signed a contract with the Jaguars on Friday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Dante Fowler
News
Fowler returned from suspension in Saturday's 17-6 preseason win over the Falcons, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

D.J. Hayden
News
Hayden (toe) will not dress for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Toe - Inactive for Week 6 at Dallas
Calais Campbell
News
Campbell left Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a rib injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

The loss of Campbell would be a huge loss for the Jaguar defense. Taven Bryan will see increased snaps in the meantime.

Donald Payne
News
Payne (hip) is in line to practice Monday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

David Williams
News
Williams was signed off the Broncos' practice squad by the Jaguars on Tuesday.

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.

A.J. Cann
News
Cann (triceps) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Cann was forced to sit out in Week 3 due to a triceps injury, but he's back in action Sunday and expected to fill in at right guard.

Tyler Shatley
News
The Jaguars exercised Shatley's team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

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.

Cody Kessler
News
Kessler completed 14 of 17 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason loss to the Saints.

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.

Malik Jackson
News
Jackson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a hamstring injury, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.

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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
Allen Lazard
News
The Jaguars waived Lazard on Friday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

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.

Andrew Norwell
News
Norwell (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Dallas.

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.

Myles Jack
News
Jack (ankle) is shifting to middle linebacker in the Jaguars' 4-3 base defense, John Oehser of the team's official website reports.

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.

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 7 vs. Houston
Kenneth Acker
News
The Jaguars placed Acker (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.

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.

Injury
Yannick Ngakoue
News
Ngakoue had two solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble against the Cardinals on Sunday.

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.

Blake Bortles
News
Bortles completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 149 yards, one touchdown and interception during Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys. He also rushed four times for 22 yards.

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.

Cody Davis
News
Davis (ribs) will suit up for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

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.

Manase Hungalu
News
Hungalu (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
Ronnie Harrison
News
Harrison is not playing in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons due to a hamstring injury, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

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.

Tashaun Gipson
News
Gipson (hamstring) is not present on Friday's injury report.

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.

DeAndre Goolsby
News
Goolsby (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

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.
