A member of Jacksonville's practice squad tested positive for COVID on Friday night, the team announced. The Jaguars are still planning on playing vs. the Lions on Sunday, but the situation obviously bears monitoring over the next 24 hours.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. 6th-round rookie QB Jake Luton is expected to get the start but is well off the fantasy radar.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is not expected to play against the Texans next Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Veteran Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Luton will reportedly compete for the Week 9 starting job in practice. Neither guy will be a bankable fantasy play, despite the plus matchup. It's unclear if Jacksonville will go back to Minshew once he's healthy.

X-rays this week revealed that Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right (throwing) thumb, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minshew has reportedly been experiencing discomfort in that thumb since the Texans game back in Week 5. That at least partially explains his uneven play over the last 3 games. Minshew has a Week 8 bye, but it's unclear if he'll be able to play come Week 9. If not, Jacksonville would turn to either veteran Mike Glennon or 6th-round rookie Jake Luton.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew could be benched as early as today's game against the Chargers if he continues to struggle, NFL Network reports. Minshew has completed 67.5% of his passes and tossed 11 TDs through 6 games. But he's also been picked off 5 times in his last 5 -- and the Jags have lost all 5 of those games. We'll see if Minshew can save his job today, but he's obviously a risky fantasy play. QB Mike Glennon is Jacksonville's backup.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has been removed from the COVID list. We still don't know whether or not he had the virus -- but it's a non-issue for now. Minshew is locked in as Jacksonville's starter and is an intriguing late-round QB2 selection in fantasy drafts.
