Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook isn't expected to practice on Thursday, according to the team. He wasn't on the injury report on Wednesday -- so he either got hurt in practice or is just getting a day off. We'll know more by Friday afternoon.

Jaguars TE Geoff Swaim exited in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints to get checked for a concussion and didn't return. We'll see whether he was diagnosed with a concussion, but it seems that way. Jacksonville lost TE James O'Shaughnessy to a torn ACL last week and is still waiting for rookie TE Josh Oliver to return from a hamstring injury. Seth DeValve finished out Sunday's game as the lead TE.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full workout on Friday. Minshew is a viable QB1 spot starter this week at home for the Saints.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with what the Associated Press' Mark Long calls "minor groin soreness." It doesn't sound like the rookie is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Saints, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. O'Shaughnessy was quietly averaging 4 targets and 2.8 catches per game. His absence leaves TE Geoff Swaim atop the depth chart, although Jacksonville is expected to get rookie TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) back soon.

Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a knee injury. He caught 3 of 4 targets for 57 yards before exiting. We'll look for an update on the injury.

Jaguars LB Quincy Williams missed Wednesday's practice with an illness but returned for a limited workout Thursday. We'll see about his Friday participation and game outlook, but expect to have Williams available for IDP usage this weekend.

Jaguars MLB Myles Jack sustained a concussion in Thursday night's win over the Titans. The longer layoff before a Week 4 trip to Denver should help his chances of completing the league protocol in time.

Jaguars WR Chris Conley is questionable to return to Thursday night's game against the Titans with what the team announced as an ankle injury. He rolled his ankle and hyper-extended his knee on the same play. We'll update Conley's status when we learn more.

Update: Conley returned later in the 2nd quarter.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Texans. It seems like he suffered a setback with that knee on Thursday. Lee isn't worth stashing in redraft leagues.

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 WR Marqise Lee (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Texans. He was added to the injury report on Thursday, so it looks like he might have suffered a setback with that knee he hurt last August. Lee played just 21% of the offensive snaps in the opener, so there's little fantasy impact here. Dede Westbrook, D.J. Chark and Chris Conley are Jacksonville's top 3 WRs.

The Jaguars have acquired QB Josh Dobbs from the Steelers in exchange for a 5th-round pick. We imagine that Dobbs is coming to back up QB Gardner Minshew, who played well in relief of Nick Foles yesterday, but we'll see what we hear from the team. Dobbs was a 4th-rounder back in 2017 and struggled to a 54.5% completion rate with 0 TDs and 2 INTs this preseason. Meanwhile, Foles will hit IR-designated-to-return after today's surgery to repair his broken collarbone, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The earliest Foles can return is Week 10.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles will undergo surgery on his broken left clavicle on Monday. “We don’t have a time span [for return]," Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time ... I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can to where I’m ready to roll.” Pro Football Talk speculates that Foles could be placed on IR-designated-to-return. That'd knock him out until at least Week 10. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew is set to take over as Jacksonville's starter. He played well against the Chiefs on Sunday but is still a downgrade for this entire Jags offense.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a broken left clavicle, according to The Athletic's Phillip Heilman. That figures to knock Foles out until at least October. We should get a more concrete timeline over the next couple of days, but it'll be Gardner Minshew under center in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future. The 6th-round rookie played surprisingly well in relief of Foles vs. the Chiefs, completing 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, 2 scores and 1 INT.

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 QB Nick Foles appeared to injure his left arm after throwing a TD to WR D.J. Chark in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more. Gardner Minshew is Jacksonville's backup QB.

Update: Foles is getting an x-ray on his left clavicle.

Update: Foles has been ruled out with what the Jags are calling a left shoulder injury.

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.

2:09pm EDT 9/1/19

The Jaguars on Sunday placed RB Alfred Blue on IR. Waiting until Sunday indicates the Jags plan to bring him back mid-season. Had Jacksonville made the move Saturday, Blue would be done for the season. His deactivation leaves only Ryquell Armstead behind Leonard Fournette among RBs from the preseason. Jacksonville claimed RBs Tyler Ervin and Devine Ozigbo off waivers
