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 Browns are trading RB Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville in exchange for a mid-round draft pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This doesn't bode well for RB Leonard Fournette's return from his hamstring trouble. Hyde joins T.J. Yeldon in the Jaguars backfield for now, although it's unclear if Hyde will be active for this weekend's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, Nick Chubb takes over as the primary ball-carrier in Cleveland. The rookie has flashed in limited chances, averaging 10.8 yards on 16 carries. He immediately jumps into the RB2 mix.

UPDATE: The Browns are receiving a 5th-round pick.

Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. With TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins on IR and TE Niles Paul also out, Jacksonville is down to TEs David Grinnage and Blake Bell. The Jaguars’ WRs should dominate targets this weekend.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. We’ll see if he can return for Week 8, but Jacksonville might hold him out through the Week 9 bye. T.J. Yeldon gets another game as the Jags’ lead back and is a solid RB2 play, despite a matchup with a tough Houston run defense.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot, ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's on track to play against the Texans this weekend.

Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (hip) did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. It looks like he suffered the injury in Wednesday's workout and is now in danger of missing this weekend's game. Check back tomorrow for another update. A healthy O'Shaughnessy would be a low-end spot-start option in a plus matchup against the Texans.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) did not practice on Wednesday. This is the 4th straight Wednesday he's been limited or held out, and he's yet to miss a game. Yeldon should be available for this weekend's tilt with the Texans, but we'll continue to keep an eye on him.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't practice on Wednesday. HC Doug Marrone said last week that Fournette had "a chance" to return for Sunday's game against the Texans -- but doing nothing on Wednesday has that looking unlikely. T.J. Yeldon figures to get another game as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars TE Niles Paul sprained his MCL in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury figures to cost Paul multiple weeks. With TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core) on IR, Jacksonville is down to James O'Shaughnessy and David Grinnage at TE.

Jaguars TE Niles Paul injured his knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game in Dallas and will not return. That leaves James O'Shaughnessy as Jacksonville's top TE.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Friday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) "has a chance" to return for Week 7. He ran off to the side of practice on Friday. We've been expecting Jacksonville to hold Fournette out through the Week 9 bye, but it sounds like the team is willing to bring him back sooner. We'll monitor his progress next week.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend. It's the 2nd week in a row that Fournette has been ruled out on Wednesday, which is usually a sign that he's nowhere close to playing. T.J. Yeldon will again serve as Jacksonville's feature back this Sunday.

The Jaguars have signed RB Jamaal Charles, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Charles is a big name but is unlikely to be a fantasy factor. He's 31 now and has averaged just 4.1 yards per carry over the past 2 seasons. He doesn't figure to see more than a handful of touches behind T.J. Yeldon in the short term.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is more confirmation than new information. Fournette missed 2 games with the hammy injury the first time around and could be sidelined longer this time. It's possible the Jags hold him out through the Week 9 bye. With RB Corey Grant (Lisfranc) on IR, T.J. Yeldon will see feature-back usage in Week 6.

The Jaguars have placed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core) on IR. He's been playing through this core-muscle injury all season but must have aggravated it in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. ASJ is reportedly a candidate to be designated for return after 8 weeks, but he's not worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues. James O'Shaughnessy and Niles Paul will handle TE duties for Jacksonville in Seferian-Jenkins' absence, but neither is a viable fantasy option right now.

Jaguars RB Corey Grant suffered a Lisfranc injury that will "likely" end his season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Grant was playing a change-of-pace role behind T.J. Yeldon with Leonard Fournette sidelined with his hamstring injury. Fournette is expected to miss at least another game, leaving only Brandon Wilds behind Yeldon. Yeldon should see feature-back usage against the Cowboys in Week 6.

Jaguars RB Corey Grant injured his left leg in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He put no pressure on the leg as he was helped off the field. We'll update Grant's status when we know more. His absence will mean more work for RB T.J. Yeldon.

UPDATE: Jacksonville announced Grant with a foot injury. He's officially questionable to return but was carted back to the locker room.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed Wednesday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Chiefs this weekend. Fournette is likely looking at another multi-game absence after re-injuring his hamstring this past Sunday. T.J. Yeldon will operate as Jacksonville's lead back in a plus matchup in Kansas City, with Corey Grant as the change-of-pace.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will likely miss "at least" 2 games with his hamstring injury. It's unclear if Schefter was reporting or taking an educated guess. Fournette missed 2 games with the bum hammy the first time around, and aggravations tend to cost guys even longer. Jags HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he's not yet sure how long Fournette will be sidelined. We'll continue to monitor the situation, but fantasy owners obviously need to prepare to again be without their stud RB. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville's lead back for however long Fournette is out, with Corey Grant in a change-of-pace role.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Jets at halftime. We didn't see when he aggravated that bum hamstring, but the fact that Jacksonville was up 16-0 might have played a part in the decision to hold him out. We'll look for updates on his status.
