The Jaguars have named Doug Marrone their new HC. He served as interim HC for the final 2 weeks of this past season, leading Jacksonville to 1 of its 3 wins. Marrone's only other experience as an NFL HC came in Buffalo during the 2013 and 2014 campaigns. He compiled a 15-17 record with the Bills, with those squads finishing 19th and 26th, respectively, in total offense. The 2013 squad led the league in rushing attempts and ranked 2nd in rushing yards. RBs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both topped 1,000 total yards that year. Marrone could bring a run-heavier attack to the Jaguars, who have ranked among the bottom 8 in run rate in 5 straight seasons. Marrone's biggest undertaking, though, will be fixing QB Blake Bortles.
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 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.
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.
