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:

JAGUARS:

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

BILLS:

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.

NFLPA seemingly responds to Jaguars, Coughlin about the word ‘voluntary’

The Jaguars today issued their annual state of the franchise address to fans and media alike. During the press conference, Tom Coughlin addressed the audience regarding the status of the football team. During his speech, Coughlin spoke about the player’s attendance to voluntary offseason workouts which began on Monday. Only two players were missing from the workouts — Jalen Ramsey and Telvin Smith –, and Coughlin’s message was clear when he stated: “We’re very close to 100 percent attendance – and quite frankly, all our players should be here.”

One statement which stood out by Coughlin was made directly afterward “Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish and insensitive to the real values of the team. The hard work that many try to avoid is the major building block for the development of an outstanding football team.” This statement creates a sort of cloudy vision of what exactly voluntary means which is why the NFLPA decided to issue their own statement on what voluntary means to them:

Listen. Everyone would love if the Jaguars had 100% attendance at these sort of voluntary workouts. There is no doubt that great strides can be made in all facets of the offseason, however, there is a reason why these workouts have been made voluntary. NFL players have been overworked, and collectively bargained with the NFL in an effort to limit the workload over the offseason in order to produce a better product on the field in the fall.

Whether or not Jalen Ramsey or Telvin Smith show up for the few-week period of voluntary workouts should have no impact. Both athletes have proven themselves over the years plenty of times. Jalen Ramsey works out with his father in Tennesee every offseason. This has no changed, nor do I expect it to anytime soon.

The former 4th round pick in 2016 was traded to Dallas last preseason, but spent the majority of the season on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in practice. He also tore his ACL, MCL, and meniscus as a rookie in 2016.

The 6-6, 310 lb guard has played in six career games, starting in five.
