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 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.
The Jaguars added Texas WR Collin Johnson in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Johnson is an intriguing prospect: a 6’6, 220-pounder with plus ball skills. He posted a 54-765-2 line as a sophomore and then went for 68-985-7 as a junior. But he struggled with a lingering hamstring injury this past year, finishing with 38 catches for 559 yards and 3 scores in 7 games. Johnson was unable to work out at the Combine due to a hip injury, and scouts wonder if he’s athletic enough to make it in the NFL. He joins D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley and fellow rookie Laviska Shenault in Jacksonville.
