Jaguars vs. Bills: Friday Injury Report, D.J. Chark Ruled Out

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills face off in their week twelve matchup at New Era Field in Buffalo. For the Jaguars this week, they are dealing with a slew of injuries including key players such as D.J. Chark, Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Cann. Should the Jaguars be able to have them suit up this week, they should see instant results during the game. Ramsey is coming off of one of his best games as a pro player, and Cann was replaced by a struggling Chris Reed last week when he went down with an injury.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, they will be without rookie wide receiver D.J. Chark as he has been unable to fully recover from a quadriceps injury suffered either earlier this week or during the game this past Sunday. Regardless, the Jaguars will now only have four receivers suited up this weekend and will have to find a replacement gunner on special teams. Chark has been invaluable to the Jaguars on special teams thus far this season.

The Jaguars will also be without Josh Walker, Lerentee McCray, and Quenton Meeks. McCray has been dealing with an injury for weeks now and has been active or inactive because of it on gamedays. Smoot will likely replace him.

With Walker out the Jaguars will see tackle Ereck Flowers once again make the start. Flowers started last week and struggled against the Steelers pass rush. This week he will have to deal with Jerry Hughes among others.

The Jaguars will also have to deal with depth at defensive tackle as tackles Marcell Dareus, and Eli Ankou are both listed as questionable. Usually, the Jaguars are able to get the players which are questionable good to go to play, so we will see what plays out when the inactive list is revealed.

If the Jaguars are going to win any game left on the schedule many would believe this would be it. So having as many people active and healthy would be paramount to the Jaguars success.

Below are both teams’ injury reports:


WR D.J. Chark (Quad): Out

DE Lerentee McCray (Hamstring): Out

CB Quenton Meeks (Knee): Out

OL Josh Walker (Foot/Ankle): Out

DT Eli Anjou (Calf): Questionable

OL A.J. Cann (Hamstring): Questionable

DT Marcell Dareus (Back): Questionable


QB Derek Anderson (Concussion): Out

C Russell Bodine (Shoulder): Questionable

TE Charles Clay (Hamstring): Doubtful

CB Taron Johnson (Shoulder): Questionable

DE Shaq Lawson (Elbow): Questionable

DE Trent Murphy (Knee): Questionable

The Bills will finally get back their top draft pick and potential franchise quarterback, Josh Allen. Allen has missed the past several weeks due to an elbow injury. The Bills hope he can bring back a spark to the offense which was set off last week due to Matt Barkley (yes, that one).

Other than that the Bills seem to be in a similar position as the Jaguars as far as injuries go. Their starting tight end Charles Clay likely will not play and two of their defensive ends, Lawson, and Murphy will also potentially be out. They are listed as questionable.

Kickoff is at 1 PM on CBS.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a couple more roster moves this Friday after releasing Strong Safety Barry Church. The Jaguars have finally activated Tackle Josh Wells. Wells was placed on short-term injured reserve after week five with a groin injury.

This move comes at an opportune time as the Jaguars will be without Right Tackle Jermey Parnell. Wells will more than likely start at Right Tackle this week against the Redskins.

The Jaguars have also released Niles Paul from injured reserve, signed Lyndon Johnson from the teams practice squad, and placed OL Josh Walker on injured reserve.

Jaguars vs. Redskins: Friday Injury Report, Parnell Out, Lambo in Doubt

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Redskins have released their Friday final status/injury report of the week ahead of their week fifteen matchup at TIAA Bank Field. For the Jaguars, they will be without Jermey Parnell, D.J. Chark, and Josh Walker.

All three players are listed as out with various injuries. The Jaguars have a move they could potentially make in activating Tackle Josh Wells who has been practicing the past couple of weeks. D.J. Chark will miss his fourth consecutive game making his rookie season disappointing in the end, unfortunately.

The other major area of concern is kicker Josh Lambo being listed as Questionable. A little later in the day, the Jaguars signed Kicker Kai Forbath which suggests he will probably be out this Sunday against the Redkins. We will revisit this on Sunday when the inactive players are released.

Below are both teams status reports:


WR D.J. Chark Jr. (Quadricep): Out

RT Jermey Parnell (Knee): Out

OL Josh Walker (Ankle): Out

LB Lerentee McCray (Illness): Questionable

K Josh Lambo (Right Groin): Questionable


LB Ryan Anderson (Hamstring): Out

TE Jordan Reed (Ankle/Foot): Out

WR Josh Doctson (Concussion): Questionable

DE Matt Ioannidis (Shin): Questionable

OT Ty Neskhe (Knee): Questionable

OT Mogan Moses (Ankle): Questionable

LS Nick Sundberg (Back): Questionable

S Monte Nicholson (Illness): Questionable

RB Chris Thompson (Illness): Questionable

The Redskins have a much more lengthy status report than the Jaguars which is remarkable given how the Jaguars injuries have gone this season. Washington will be without at least a couple of starters including their starting Linebacker and Tight End. They also more than likely will be without a starting wide receiver in Josh Doctson.

Their Long Snapper Nick Sundberg has a high possibility of missing the game this Sunday as well because of a back injury. They have brought in a few long snappers to work out in the event he is not able to go.

Jaguars sign Kicker Kai Forbath in Wake of Josh Lambo Injury

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a roster move in wake of the Josh Lambo right-groin injury. They have signed former Redskins and Vikings Kicker Kai Forbath. Forbath has a career FG% of 85.9% which is at the very least respectable in a league where kickers seem to be missing routine kicks daily now.

With Lambo potentially out the Jaguars were forced into a move. This could always be more of a cautionary move in the case Lambo does not play, but generally speaking, if a team signs a kicker near the end of the week it is not a good sign. We will see what happens when the last injury report comes out.
