The Jaguars on Monday activated DE/OLB Josh Allen from the COVID list. That comes 7 days after he landed on it, indicating that Allen never tested positive. He should be good to go for the regular-season opener.

The Jaguars placed DE/OLB Josh Allen on the COVID list Monday. It's not yet clear whether he tested positive or was merely a close contact.

The Jaguars are re-signing DE Dawuane Smoot for 2 years, $14 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's pretty significant money for a guy with 11.5 sacks through 4 pro seasons, but Smoot just got his 1st starting shot in 2020. His 17 QB hits tied for 28th in the league. The new contract indicates that Jacksonville's new coaching staff believes in Smoot's semi-breakout. He'll share edge reps with Josh Allen and K'Lavon Chaisson, 1st-round picks the past 2 years.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen avoided ligament damage in the knee he injured Sunday against the Steelers. But HC Doug Marrone says Allen "will be out for quite a while," according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. That makes the inconsistent producer fine to drop in redraft IDP leagues.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Steelers with a knee injury. Allen needed help off the field and into the locker room. We'll see about the severity of the injury.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he thinks DE Josh Allen is "trending on being able to play this week," according to SI.com. Allen lost the past 2 games to a hip injury, but it sounds like he should return to face the Chargers on Sunday. L.A. has allowed the 2nd most DL points per game so far this season, offering a solid matchup for Jacksonville's top D-lineman. The scoring has been more tackle-driven than sack-friendly, though. So the fantasy floor looks better than the ceiling. We'll watch Allen's participation level through the practice week.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. He seemed to be trending toward a return with limited practices Wednesday and Thursday after missing Week 5. But Allen sat out Friday’s practice. We’ll see about his status for a Week 7 meeting with the Chargers.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Allen missed last week's game with the injury. He put in limited practices the 1st 2 days of this week but then sat out Friday. That doesn't seem to point to Allen being a good IDP play this week. We'll update his status Sunday morning, but you should plan for an alternative in your fantasy lineup.

The Jaguars have downgraded DE Josh Allen to out for Sunday's game against the Texans. He already looked unlikely to play through a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. Allen's absence could mean more snaps for rookie K'Lavon Chaisson and DE Dawuane Smoot. Chaisson reached 50% snap share for the 2nd time in 4 games last week but hasn't looked like a player who belongs in IDP lineups yet. Smoot has yet to hit 50% in a game this season. Cassius Marsh could see the biggest boost at the position. His playing time has gone 19%, 62% and 32% through his 3 appearances.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (knee), LB Myles Jack (ankle) and CB C.J. Henderson (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jack is the only one worth waiting on for IDP lineups. Allen missed practice all week. The other 2 put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll check the status of all 3 when the inactives come out Sunday morning.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen missed practice Wednesday with a calf issue. He left Sunday's win over the Colts early with calf cramping. Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said he expects Allen to return to practice Thursday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Titans website, so it sounds like Allen should be ready to play against Tennessee on Sunday.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen sustained a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. We'll see whether it impacts his availability for Week 16.

Did Jaguars top pick Josh Allen slip in your dynasty league's rookie draft amid concern that he'd play LB? Well, drop that concern. "Josh Allen was drafted to be a defensive end," DC Todd Wash told the team website Thursday. "He did a real nice job of dropping [into coverage] in college. I can't honestly say -- being a D-line [coach] that I get too excited about a 15-sack guy dropping into coverage. Hopefully, you won't see too damned much of that." Allen finished his Kentucky career with 17 sacks and 21.5 total tackles for loss last season. He has a shot to prove immediately relevant in IDP leagues.

The Jaguars spent the 7th pick of the NFL Draft on DE Josh Allen. The former Kentucky star exploded for 17 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss in his senior season, after tallying 14 sacks and 19 tackles for loss over his previous 2 seasons. Allen should work into the edge rotation right away. Jacksonville has Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell starting at DE currently, but Campbell often moves inside for passing situations. Most importantly for IDP owners, going to Jacksonville's 4-3 base scheme should start Allen with a DE designation. That helps his value for dynasty rookie drafts.
