Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew Dealing with “Minor Groin Soreness”

Jaguars rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew was added to the injury report as “limited” in practice according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.

Long adds that Minshew is battling “minor groin soreness”.

While late week additions to the injury report are never good news, Minshew at this point does not appear to be in any danger of missing Sunday’s home date with the New Orleans Saints.

Coming off a career-high 374 yards in last week’s loss to Carolina, the early Rookie of the Year frontrunner could flirt with QB1 status this week, particularly with four teams on bye

Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Says He Expects Unhappy CB Jalen Ramsey to Play Vs Saints

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been the part of trade rumors for weeks for the Jaguars, and while owner Shad Khan says the team won’t trade him, the club also wants to get him back on the field.

Owner Shad Khan told the financial website TheStreet.com that he had a “heart-to-heart” talk with Ramsey this week, and that he expected him to play Sunday against the Saints.

“Well, I think he’s going to be playing this week,” Khan said. “It’s something, you have to balance what’s good for the team with what the individual maybe wishes it might be. And I think we’ll be able to kind of formalize it here.

“I met him a couple of days ago, had a heart-to-heart, and I think we’ll be able to come to whatever makes sense for all.”

Ramsey has missed the last two games, after an unmet trade demand triggered a bout of flu and back problems which required a visit to a Houston specialist last week.

Khan was also asked if he’d trade Ramsey for five first-round picks, and he laughed and replied: “Do you understand value? Then I think you already know the answer.”

So there is a price. It just hasn’t been met yet. And Ramsey’s apparently going to return to action, unless there’s a malaria outbreak or something.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey to Play vs Titans Thursday According to Doug Marrone

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who has asked the team to trade him, will play on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Marrone also said he spoke with Ramsey on Tuesday, and there are no lingering issues regarding their sideline shouting match in Sunday’s game. But he didn’t have anything to say on Wednesday about Ramsey’s trade request.

“I stay out of that,” Marrone said. “I stay out of contracts, stay out of that stuff, and my focus is on the guys that are playing, and he’s playing and he’s on the team. I don’t get involved in that.”

Ramsey’s agent informed the team after Sunday’s 13-12 loss to Houston that he wanted a trade. Ramsey is in the fourth year of his rookie contract and the team exercised the fifth-year option for 2020. League sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen the Jaguars are seeking at least a first-round pick but would like more than that.

Jaguars Banged Up Entering Sunday’s Game Against the Texans

The Jags are hoping to get back on track Sunday in their first divisional game of 2019, but will have to do it very much banged up.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Jags will enter the game with a number of big injuries, starting with starting corner A.J. Bouye.

Here’s the tweet on the injuries to the Jags:

For the #Texans game, #Jaguars CB A.J. Bouye (hip) and WR Marqise Lee (knee) have been downgraded to out and did not travel. DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring), T Cedric Ogbuehi (hamstring), and TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) are already out.

It’s going to take a team effort for the Jags to get it done Sunday, but how much of a team they will have is the question.

Jaguars Acquire QB Josh Dobbs From Steelers for Fifth-Round Pick

After losing new QB Nick Foles the Jaguars were in the market for a quarterback, and found one in Pittsburgh in their third-stringer Josh Dobbs.

The Jags traded a 2020 fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh in exchange for Dobbs, who lost out on the backup QB job this summer.

Foles was placed on IR after breaking his left clavicle early during Sunday’s opening day home loss to the Chiefs.

Foles underwent surgery Monday morning and is expected to return “afterward” but no definitive timeline has been set.

Foles was knocked out of the game after being leveled by a pair of Chiefs defenders on the first touchdown throw of his Jacksonville career, a 35-yard pass to DJ Chark.

Dobbs, a fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2017, went 6-of-12 for 43 yards and one interception.

He lost the backup quarterback job to 2018 pick Mason Rudolph in camp, becoming expendable.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles Injured Vs Chiefs; Out for Rest of Game

It took less than one quarter for the Jaguars to lose their biggest important offseason pickup with what could be a serious injury.

Quarterback Nick Foles was taken to the locker room after he threw a touchdown that got the Jags back to 10-7 in their opener against the Chiefs.

Adam Schefter says it’s a left shoulder injury.

Jaguars WR Terrelle Pryor Day-To-Day with a Hamstring Injury

Jaguars wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is considered day-to-day with a hamstring injury according to NFL.com.

Pryor tweaked his hamstring in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. It does not sound like a long-term issue but any missed time by the 30-year-old converted quarterback reduces his odds of making the final 53-man roster.

Pryor signed a one-year deal to join the Jags in late May and always seemed like a longshot to stick in Jacksonville, as it is a team with no big names in their wideout corps but a lot of depth at the position. Pryor was already behind Dede Westbrook, D.J. Chark, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole and Marqise Lee’s activation from the PUP list likely sealed his fate.

Pryor has caught three passes for 26 yards on four targets thus far in the preseason. His receiving career has taken a steep nosedive since breaking out for 77 catches, 1,007 yards, and four touchdowns with the Browns back in 2016.
