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.

Here’s the complete rundown of who Sporting News likes along with the Super Bowl teams.

Jaguars Lose Another LB; James Onwualu Done for the Year with a Knee Injury

Jaguars linebacker James Onwualu will miss the season because of a knee injury, leaving the team pretty thin at that position as the preseason begins on Thursday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Coach Doug Marrone called the injury that Onwualu suffered on Monday during joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens significant, but declined to elaborate on its exact nature. Onwualu was listed as the co-starter with Leon Jacobs at strongside linebacker on the team’s first unofficial depth chart.

“It’s something that was a non-contact injury for the guys that have seen it and those are tough,” Marrone said. “And he’s worked his butt off, and worked really hard, and I saw him yesterday afterwards and it’s just a tough situation. You thank the player for everything he put in, but you kind of know what the road looks like ahead, which is always a tough road for anyone that has an injury.”

Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue Reports to Camp Ending Holdout Despite No New Deal

Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue reported to practice Sunday and will play this season on the final year of his rookie deal, ending his holdout.

The team tweeted a video that showed him walking toward the practice field and head coach Doug Marrone was pleased to regain one of the Jacksonville defense’s key pieces.

“Happy to have him back and ready to go,” Marrone said. “We’re excited. He’s ready to go. He’s in great shape and we’re all together.”

Marrone didn’t anticipate needing to bring Ngakoue up to speed.

“Yan’s always been in great shape, ready to go,” Marrone said. “He’s an anxious guy. He doesn’t like taking it that way. When he’s ready to go, he wants to go all the way. That’s just how he is and how he’s wound.”

Three Questions About the Jaguars as Training Camp Gets Closer

When the Jaguars woke up on the final day of September, they were sitting at 3-1 and it looked like they would be a shoe-in for a playoff spot yet again in the AFC.

Three months later, a bitter taste was left in the team’s mouth as they walked off the field in Houston carrying a record of 5-11 with them, going 2-10 after the team’s 3-1 start.

How did it get so bad so quickly? There was plenty of blame to go around, but as 2019 gets ready to start, there’s a new and hopeful look to the team as they hope to be more like the team that took the Pats to the limit in the AFC Title game two seasons ago.

Today we look at three questions about this team as training camp gets going, and what to expect from the 2019 version of the Jaguars.

1. Can Nick Foles Give Stability to the QB Spot?

The team tried to pass along to fans that Blake Bortles was the answer at quarterback the last two seasons, but clearly they were wrong.

In looking to right that wrong, the team gave Nick Foles a ton of money and the starting job upon inking a deal this offseason away from the Philadelphia Eagles, where he won them a Super Bowl two years ago.

Foles is a veteran guy whose basically has been given the keys to the offense to run with. He’s got a lot of pressure, but this is a job he’s been waiting for.

A good camp will go a long way in calming the nerves if anyone thinks the team made a mistake in signing him.

2. Can This Team Get Leonard Fournette Back to Form?

It was a rough 2018 for leading running back Leonard Fournette, as he ran for just 439 yards in eight games total with five scores.

Many have been critical of Fournette for the shape that he’s in or his attitude in regards to being a team player.

He’s got a lot to prove in 2019, and a big chunk of camp will be spent on the team looking to get him his groove back along with an unproven offensive line.

It’s a priority to get him back to form.

3. Will Yannick Ngakoue Show Up?

Yannick Ngakoue wants a new deal, and the Jaguars are still trying to figure out what it is going to take to get the excellent defensive end in camp.

He’s got close to 30 sacks over the last three seasons and is just entering his prime, and if the team can’t find a way to get him in happy, it’s going to be a huge blow for this defense to start the season without him.

The defense all offseason has been talking about being more aggressive and more like the team that was a terror on the field in 2017, but without Ngakoue, that’s going to be next to impossible.
