Jacksonville Jaguars Injury Updates

Jaguars S Josh Jones left in the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Titans with a shoulder injury and did not return. He wound up playing just 24% of the defensive snaps, with Andrew Wingard coming on for the rest of the playing time but managed just 3 tackles. He'd be the fill-in starter for next Sunday's game against the Ravens if Jones remains out.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Steelers with a knee injury. Allen needed help off the field and into the locker room. We'll see about the severity of the injury.

Jaguars CB Sidney Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He put in limited workouts Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon injury. Jones then sat out Friday altogether. That certainly doesn't seem to bode well for his Sunday participation. We'll check his status on game day, though.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he thinks DE Josh Allen is "trending on being able to play this week," according to SI.com. Allen lost the past 2 games to a hip injury, but it sounds like he should return to face the Chargers on Sunday. L.A. has allowed the 2nd most DL points per game so far this season, offering a solid matchup for Jacksonville's top D-lineman. The scoring has been more tackle-driven than sack-friendly, though. So the fantasy floor looks better than the ceiling. We'll watch Allen's participation level through the practice week.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Allen missed last week's game with the injury. He put in limited practices the 1st 2 days of this week but then sat out Friday. That doesn't seem to point to Allen being a good IDP play this week. We'll update his status Sunday morning, but you should plan for an alternative in your fantasy lineup.

The Jaguars have downgraded DE Josh Allen to out for Sunday's game against the Texans. He already looked unlikely to play through a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. Allen's absence could mean more snaps for rookie K'Lavon Chaisson and DE Dawuane Smoot. Chaisson reached 50% snap share for the 2nd time in 4 games last week but hasn't looked like a player who belongs in IDP lineups yet. Smoot has yet to hit 50% in a game this season. Cassius Marsh could see the biggest boost at the position. His playing time has gone 19%, 62% and 32% through his 3 appearances.

Jaguars OLB Myles Jack left Sunday's game early with an ankle injury and did not return. HC Doug Marrone said Tuesday that he's "optimistic" about the starters lost to injury against the Bengals but that he'd know more when the practice week begins Wednesday. Dakota Allen came on and finished the game in Jack's spot. He'd likely start in Jack's spot if the latter can't go.

Jaguars CB C.J. Henderson left Sunday's loss to the Bengals with a shoulder injury. He played just 12 snaps before leaving for the rest of the game. Seventh-round rookie Chris Claybrooks stepped in to play 72% of the snaps. We'll see about Henderson's status heading into Week 5 against Houston.

Jaguars S Andrew Wingard left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Dolphins with a core injury and was ruled out for the game. We'll see about Wingard's status heading into Week 4. He was already filling in for S Jarrod Wilson.

10:09pm EDT 9/16/20

The Jaguars this week placed S Jarrod Wilson on IR with a hamstring injury suffered in the win over the Colts. That means Wilson will miss at least the next 3 games. Jacksonville added CB Sidney Jones to the active roster after deactivating Wilson, who is merely a lower-level IDP option.

The Vikings are trading a pair of draft picks to the Jaguars for DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to multiple reports. Jacksonville gets a 2021 second-rounder and a conditional 5th-round pick in 2022. According to Adam Schefter, that pick becomes a 4th if Ngakoue makes the Pro Bowl this season; a 3rd if Ngakoue makes the Pro Bowl and the Vikings win the Super Bowl. Ngakoue has delivered 8+ sacks and 14+ QB hits in each of his 4 seasons. He should quickly take over the right DE job from Ifeadi Odenigbo, who has been replacing the departed Everson Griffen. The Jaguars, meanwhile, now have more edge snaps available for 1st-round pick K'Lavon Chaisson. He has reportedly impressed HC Doug Marrone since returning from an early-camp hamstring injury.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen sustained a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. We'll see whether it impacts his availability for Week 16.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Jaguars will place LB Myles Jack on IR today with the knee injury that cost him Week 13. That should lock in Donald Payne as the MLB starter the rest of the way. Payne racked up 13 tackles against the Buccaneers last week and looks like a high-ceiling IDP option for Week 14 against the Chargers.

The Jaguars have ruled CB Jalen Ramsey out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Ramsey will miss his 2nd straight contest with a back injury that he says has been an issue throughout his career. "Jalen's been working extremely hard to get back with this low-back issue and it hasn't been getting any better," HC Doug Marrone said Friday, according to ESPN's Mike DiRocco. We'll see where this goes.

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.

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.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against Seattle, but there's been no report of him clearing the league protocol as of Saturday morning. The status suggests the team hopes he can clear it Saturday and play, but IDP owners need to secure insurance. LB Paul Posluszny would be a fantasy starter if Smith sits again. CB Jalen Ramsey is also questionable with the same ankle injury that landed him on the Week 13 injury report. He put in just a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days, a lower participation level than last week. We'll check Ramsey's status Sunday morning.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (hand) is active for today's game against the Cardinals after all. He said after suffering the injury in Friday's practice that he wouldn't be playing, but the team has listed him as questionable all along. Use Ramsey as you normally would in your IDP league, though the injury likely hurts his ability to catch a football at least a bit.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey will play today against the Cardinals despite the hand injury he suffered Friday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. Ramsey had said after Friday's practice that he would miss the game, but Jacksonville has kept him listed as questionable the entire time. We'll confirm his status when the late-game inactives arrive. Unfortunately, the late start means you'll either need to opt for a different DB in your IDP lineup or secure an insurance option from the Seahawks, 49ers, Jaguars, Cardinals, Saints, Rams, Broncos, Raiders, Packers, Steelers, Texans or Ravens. If you plan to wait, fellow Jaguars Aaron Colvin could serve as insurance from the same upside matchup.
