Jaguars LT Cam Robinson Done for the Season with Torn ACL

Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, multiple reports confirmed.

Robinson, who started 15 games as a rookie second-round pick in 2017, left Sunday’s win over the New England Patriots in the first quarter after getting rolled up on.

Josh Wells replaced Robinson in the lineup on Sunday, when the Jaguars piled up 481 yards and manhandled the Patriots, 31-20.

The Jaguars Two-Tone Helmets Are a Thing of the Past

ESPN reports today that the Jaguars two-tone helmets are no more, as the team is going back to just the traditional black helmets starting for the 2018 season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ gold and black two-tone helmets were dumped following the 2017 season as part of a uniform overhaul. In addition to redesigned jerseys — including ones in teal and crisp white with black numbers — Jaguars players are now sporting glossy black helmets. Tom Coughlin, the team’s executive vice president of football operations, had a heavy hand in the redesign, especially when it came to the helmets.

Yet, those two-tone helmets — which ESPN Uni Watch’s Paul Lukas called the worst in NFL history — are still around. In fact, you’ll be able to see some of them on Sunday when the Jaguars open the 2018 season against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Here’s ESPN’s 2018 Uni Watch preview, too.

Some of the helmets worn by the players — quarterback Blake Bortles included — are repainted two-tone helmets.

Replacing all the helmets a team needs would be ridiculously expensive. Each helmet can cost as much as $1,500 and NFL teams have roughly 200 (they need 90-plus for training camp alone plus spares), so that’s $300,000. Repainting is cost effective, especially when there’s nothing structurally wrong with the helmet.

Jalen Ramsey’s At It Again – Slams Pats TE Gronkowski and Dolphins WR Amendola in Interview

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey doesn’t hold Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola in high regard.

Ramsey, who blasted a number of NFL quarterbacks in a recent interview with GQ, poured proverbial cold water on Gronkowski during a session with ESPN The Magazine.

“I don’t think Gronk’s good,” Rasmey said of the four-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection. “Let me say — I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”

Ramsey didn’t let it end there.

“Any time Gronk has been matched up with a corner, he’s had a very bad game,” the All-Pro said, “and that corner has had a very good game.”

ESPN’s Mina Kimes then asked Ramsey how Gronkowski fared when the two met in the AFC Championship Game in January.

“Literally nothing. He may have had, like, one catch,” Ramsey said.

Ramsey is correct with the one reception, although Gronkowski departed before halftime because of a concussion.

The two are expected to meet again in Week 2 when the Jaguars host the Patriots on Sept. 16.

Amendola, who signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Dolphins during free agency, didn’t escape the wrath of Ramsey.

“He just got a brand-new contract and he is terrible,” Ramsey said of Amendola. “People think he’s so great. No, he’s not. Tom (Brady) made him look good. Tom could take me as a receiver and I’d be a first-team All-Pro.”

Amendola hauled in 61 catches for 659 yards and two touchdowns last season and was superb in New England’s run to the Super Bowl with 26 receptions in three postseason games. The 32-year-old will have an opportunity to respond when the Dolphins host the Jaguars in Week 16 on Dec. 23.

When healthy, Gronkowski has produced. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski posted 69 catches for 1,084 yards with eight touchdowns over 14 games last season.

A second-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2010, Gronkowski has been a touchdown machine since joining the team, reaching double digits in five of his eight seasons, including a career-high 17 in 2011.

Gronkowski has surpassed 1,000 yards four times and has 474 receptions for 7,179 yards in 102 career games (89) starts. His 76 touchdown catches rank third on the all-time list among tight ends, behind Antonio Gates (114) and Tony Gonzalez (111).

Ramsey recorded 63 tackles and four interceptions in 16 games last season. He has collected 128 tackles and six interceptions since being selected with the fifth overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The 23-year-old Ramsey lowered the boom on several NFL quarterbacks in GQ, saying Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen is “trash,” Baltimore Ravens veteran Joe Flacco isn’t much better, while Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan effectively are overrated.

Could Jalen Ramsey’s Trash Talk Help the Jaguars Be Even Better in 2018?

There’s been plenty of chatter about how much chatting one Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey has been doing this offseason calling out QB’s and other players in the NFL.

One former NFL player, CB Asante Samuel, says that Ramsey’s words could actually make the Jaguars a BETTER team in 2018 according to TMZ Sports.

Here’s the story.

Samuel — a 2-time Super Bowl champ (who will be on the Hall of Fame ballot next year) — says the comments will essentially force his teammates to step up and play better.

The former Pro Bowl corner LOVES Ramsey’s confidence — but warns the 23-year-old that he can’t just be about that hype … he’s gotta go and back it up.

And, if his Jaguars teammates REALLY have his back, they’ll step up and play harder for Ramsey.

“That motivates your team. That motivates your brothers. We got our brothers’ back.”

New Daddy Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey Reports to Training Camp

Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsey has reported to training camp a week after the birth of his first child.

Ramsey arrived Tuesday and was expected to join teammates on the practice field following a physical. It’s unclear how much Ramsey will do during his first day back.

Ramsey missed the first four practices to remain in Tennessee with his girlfriend, Bre, and newborn daughter, Breelyn. He wrote on his Twitter page that “family is among the most important things in my life, along with my faith and football.”

Jaguars New Dad CB Jalen Ramsey to Miss the Start of Training Camp

Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey will miss the start of training camp after becoming a new father.

Ramsey announced Wednesday on his Twitter page that he would remain in Tennessee with his girlfriend, Bre, and newborn daughter, Breelyn, while the team opens camp Thursday.

Over a picture from Disney’s “The Lion King,” Ramsey wrote “for me, family is among the most important things in my life, along with my faith and football. Today starts a new chapter in my life, as Bre and I are blessed to welcome our baby into this world.”

He adds “as soon as I’m comfortable knowing my family is healthy and happy, I’ll return to Jacksonville to rejoin my teammates on our quest to handle some unfinished business.”

Coach Doug Marrone says Ramsey let coaches know about the potential conflict months ago.

Jaguars Want Bruising RB Leonard Fournette to Stay Aggressive in 2018

Leonard Fournette was the fourth pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and as a rookie he had an immediate impact on the Jaguars’ offense.

During the three-day mandatory work, running back Leonard Fournette, who occasionally had to be told by Bortles where to line up properly during last year’s minicamp, showed that he knows his offensive responsibilities much better now, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Asked what’s the biggest stride he would like to see Fournette make before camp opens – offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said consistency.

?We always preach efficiency, efficiency,? Hackett said. ?I think as a young player getting to this level and then he really ran hard and did a really good job. But I think he almost took too many hits. I just want him to be able to understand the system more so he can run even smarter, but still never lose that aggressiveness.?

An Early Guess At Who the Jaguars 2018 MVP Will Be

The Jags have a season starting in less than 100 days, and with a long training camp and season upcoming, there’s plenty of chatter as to what player might shine better than the rest as the teams Most Valuable Player.

An article out on NFL.com talks about just what player they think will be the MVP for not only the Cats, but for each team around the National Football League for 2018.

The Jaguars MVP – author Dan Hanzus is going with running back Leonard Fournette, a very good player that he sees having a big year in Jacksonville this upcoming season.

Here’s what Hanzus has to say about Tucker this season:

Fournette’s rookie season was a hit-and-miss affair. At times, he looked like the young star the Jags thought they were getting when they drafted him fourth overall. But he also looked slow and hobbled for long stretches, averaging less than 4 yards per carry during the regular season and playoffs. New season, new expectations for Fournette, who must blossom into a dependable stud if Jacksonville is going to take the next step. The addition of mauling guard Andrew Norwell in free agency could be just what Fournette needs. Ground and pound, baby.
