The Jaguars have ruled CB A.J. Bouye out for Sunday's game against the Texans. His absence makes the matchup much friendlier for Houston WR Will Fuller.
The Jaguars have ruled DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. CB A.J. Bouye (hip) is questionable after limited workouts Thursday and Friday. If he's inactive Sunday, the matchup gets better for Houston WR Will Fuller.
Jaguars MLB Myles Jack was ejected against the Chiefs for hitting an opponent in the face. We'll see whether the infraction draws further league discipline.
Jaguars DT Marcell Dareus (elbow) is out for today's game against the Chiefs. He put in limited practices all week, so we'd guess he'll be back for Week 2.
Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue ended his 11-day training camp holdout Sunday and reported to the team, despite not getting a new contract. ESPN reports that Ngakoue passed the conditioning test in the morning and assumed his usual starting spot in full-team drills. He also sits with the starters in the initial depth chart on the team website. HC Doug Marrone deemed Ngakoue "ready to go and in great shape." It looks like we can proceed as normal in IDP leagues, where Ngakoue supplies double-digit sack upside but a low tackle floor.
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.
Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith announced via Instagram on Thursday that he'll be taking 2019 off from football to "get my world in order." After the announcement, the Jaguars released a statement saying they wouldn't have a comment until after they had "a conversation with Telvin to understand the situation and the circumstances." That indicates Smith hadn't even been in contact with the franchise about whatever's going on in his life. We'll see where this goes. Bet on open competition for the weak-side job in Jacksonville this year. Smith's absence raises the tackle ceiling for MLB Myles Jack.
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.
Jaguars CB A.J. Bouye (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Jaguars S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) and CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) are active for today’s game against the Colts. Neither is a strong IDP option, but they’re available if you want them.
Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) and S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. Each guy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited Friday workout. We'll check their status Sunday morning.
Jaguars LB Telvin Smith popped onto the injury report Thursday with a shoulder issue that limited his practice participation the past 2 days. Smith is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
The Jaguars have ruled CB A.J. Bouye (calf) out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves the secondary without 1 of its 2 outside corners and its top 2 slot corners. The whole situation just might mean more upside for Carson Wentz and his wideouts.
Jaguars DE Calais Campbell (ankle) is active for today's game against the Texans. Campbell managed limited practices Thursday and Friday and reportedly told NFL Network's James Palmer after warmups that he's "good to go." We'd go ahead and use him in IDP lineups in nearly all cases for a high-upside matchup.
Jaguars DE Calais Campbell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jacksonville lists him with an ankle injury, which he played through in Week 6. Campbell came away from that game with a new rib injury. Whatever the main ailment, he did put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
The Jaguars have added DL Calais Campbell to the injury report, listing him as questionable against the Patriots with a knee issue. We'll check on his status when the inactives come out later this morning. The matchup already has Campbell well down our DL rankings vs. his usual outlook.
The Jaguars on Sunday announced team suspensions for CB Jalen Ramsey and DE Dante Fowler. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the moves come as a result of "violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player." Fowler reportedly got into multiple scuffles with teammate DE Yannick Ngakoue in practice, while Ramsey's misstep appears to have been his actions toward the media following the practice fights. The 2 have reportedly been suspended for a week, which could include the 2nd preseason game. The situations likely won't affect either's standing for the regular season or the team's defense on whole. It is just the latest issue for Fowler, though, who has already been suspended for Week 1 by the league and only came off the PUP list Saturday. The former early 1st-round pick already saw the team refuse the 5th-year option (for 2019) on his rookie contract.
