Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s safe to use as you normally would for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. Shenault underwent an MRI on Monday that evidently revealed no major issues. He'll be out there for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals.

Jaguars HC Urban Meyer says WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) “should” play this week, per beat writer John Shipley. We’ll follow Shenault's practice participation over the next few days. Through 2 weeks, the 2nd-year WR has just 47 yards on 9 catches.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he'll have an MRI Monday. We'll see about the severity of the issue.

Jaguars coaches are "buzzing" about WR Laviska Shenault, according to insider Hays Carlyon. Shenault has garnered heaps of praise from beat writers for his work in OTAs and minicamp -- and it sounds like Jacksonville's coaching staff has seen the same thing. Shenault turned in a promising rookie season and is getting a big QB upgrade in Trevor Lawrence this year. He's a 2021 breakout candidate.

The Jaguars selected Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence with the 1st pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s tough to say how long we’ve known this would be the pick. Lawrence spent at least all of the 2020 season as the presumptive #1 selection. With 36 starts across 3 years at Clemson, Lawrence enters the NFL long on experience. He racked up 90 TD passes vs. just 17 INTs with the Tigers and earned passing grades of 90+ from Pro Football Focus in each of his 3 seasons. Lawrence brings accuracy in throwing to every level and adds rushing upside. He topped out at 563 yards on the ground as a 2019 sophomore and punched in 17 TD runs over the past 2 years. With Jacksonville, Lawrence inherits a talented WR corps led by D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and free-agent addition Marvin Jones. Lawrence has the upside to crack the fantasy top 12 right away and should be a long-term factor for his fantasy teams.

WR Marvin Jones has agreed to a 2-year, $14.5 million deal with the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (That includes $9.2 million guaranteed.) Jones reunites with OC Darrell Bevell, who ran the Detroit offense the past 2 years and now serves as Jacksonville's OC. Jones also joins a receiving corps led by D.J. Chark and 2nd-year WR Laviska Shenault. Those 3 figure to lead the depth chart, leaving little room for Keelan Cole, Chris Conley or Collin Johnson to find relevance. Jones played all 16 games last year for the 1st time in 3 seasons, catching a career-high 76 balls for 978 yards and 9 TDs. His arrival complicates the target outlook for Chark and Shenault.

The Jaguars have named Darrell Bevell their new OC. Multiple teams were interested in hiring the 51-year-old, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, but Bevell opted to join HC Urban Meyer in Jacksonville. Bevell has 14 seasons of experience as an NFL OC. He spent the past 2 years in Detroit, where the Lions ranked near the middle of the pack in total yards and points. Bevell's units were better during his Seattle tenure from 2011 to 2017, with 5 of those 7 squads finishing top 11 in points. His offenses have generally leaned toward the run, with 10 of the 14 ranking among the top half of the league in rush attempts. Only 4 of them have finished top-16 in pass attempts.

The Jaguars have hired Urban Meyer as HC. It'll be his first foray into the NFL after spending over 30 years in the college ranks. Meyer most recently served as Ohio State's HC from 2012-2018, leading the Buckeyes to an 83-9 record and 1 national championship. He also won 2 titles among 6 seasons as Florida's HC and spent 2 years before that as HC at Utah. Meyer was reportedly infatuated with the idea of coaching incoming rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. (Who wouldn't be?) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that Meyer is eyeing Scott Linehan as his OC, although that move isn't official yet.

The Jaguars have fired HC Doug Marrone, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Marrone went 10-6 in his 1st full season at the helm but totaled just 12 wins over the past 3 years. Jacksonville has already been linked to former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer. Whoever gets the gig figures to be working with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (shin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. It ends a disappointing season that saw the 3rd-year wideout post a 53-706-5 line in 13 games. With Jacksonville expected to use the 1st overall pick of this spring's draft on QB Trevor Lawrence, Chark will be a prime 2021 bounce-back candidate. WR Collin Johnson (hamstring) is also out for Week 17, leaving Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ribs) isn't listed on the final injury report and will play against the Vikings this weekend. That's a plus matchup, and QB Mike Glennon played well enough last week to make Chark an upside WR3. WR Chris Conley (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game but is off the fantasy radar with Chark back. Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault will serve as Jacksonville's #2 and #3 WRs.

Jaguars WRs D.J. Chark (ribs) and Chris Conley (hip) are out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. WR Laviska Shenault is set to return from his hamstring injury and will join WR Keelan Cole atop the depth chart. Rookie Collin Johnson figures to operate as the #3 WR. It’s probably a situation to avoid with QB Mike Glennon making his 1st start with Jacksonville — but you can make an argument for Shenault and Cole as WR4s.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley will again serve as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs in that one.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He’ll be replaced in the starting lineup by WR Chris Conley, who would be a desperation fantasy play.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The rookie seems to at least have a chance to play against the Packers this weekend after getting knocked out of last Sunday's game after just 10 snaps. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) got "good news" on his MRI and "has a chance" to play against the Packers on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll monitor the rookie's practice participation this week, although he probably shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans coming off this injury.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.
