Steelers LB Myles Jack didn't play in Sunday's game against the Saints. He opened the week not practicing with a knee issue but finished with a full Friday workout and didn't appear on the final injury report. But LB Robert Spillane started in his place, next to Devin Bush. We'll see whether coaches reveal the motivation this week.

Steelers LB Myles Jack did not practice Wednesday because of a knee issue. He saw his usual level of playing time in the Week 8 loss to the Eagles, but missing practice coming out of the Week 9 bye seems ominous. HC Mike Tomlin gave no insight into expectations for Jack this week. We'll see about his status the next 2 days.

The Steelers on Thursday signed LB Myles Jack to a 2-year, $16 million deal with $6.5 million guaranteed. That's starter money for 2022 at least. According to Spotrac, the contract seems to be structured in a way that Pittsburgh can decide about 2023 after seeing Jack for a year. The 26-year-old (until September) washed out with the team that drafted him and then extended him. We'd be surprised if he turns into a terrific real-life player in Pittsburgh. For fantasy football, on the other hand, Jack lands well in what should be a full-time role next to a LB (Devin Bush) who has been more disappointing relative to 1st-round draft status. Depending on where Jack lands in IDP drafts this summer, the new Steeler could be a nice value.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars are releasing LB Myles Jack. He's still just 26 and had remained a starter for Jacksonville, but Jack's contract has outweighed his contributions. His release will save the team $8.35 million in cap space. Expect Jack to land at least a shot at a starting job elsewhere.

The Jaguars on Friday placed CB Shaq Griffin on the COVID list. They also activated DE Josh Allen, LB Myles Jack and LB Damien Wilson, among others.

Jaguars LB Myles Jack tested positive for COVID on Sunday morning and will miss today's game against the Jets. That leaves Damien Wilson as the lead LB for today's upside matchup with the Jets. In the lone full game Jack has missed so far this year, Wilson collected a season-high 12 tackles. Wilson has climbed our Week 16 IDP rankings.

Jaguars HC Urban Meyer said Monday that he expects to have LB Myles Jack (back) and rookie CB Tyson Campbell (toe) back on the field after the team's Week 7 bye.

Jaguars rookie CB Tyson Campbell (toe) is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins. Jacksonville will also be without LB Myles Jack, who is out with a back injury. Jack's absence boosts the IDP upside for LB Damien Wilson.

Jaguars LB Myles Jack left Sunday's game against the Titans with a back injury and did not return. We'll watch for Monday updates on his status.
