The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts have released their Friday injury report and status update ahead of their week ten matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium. For the Jaguars, they will finally be getting back star Running Back Leonard Fournette as well as starting Nickel Corner D.J. Hayden.

The Jaguars have missed Fournette as he has been inactive for several weeks with a hamstring injury. Fournette, as well as Hayden, were able to practice in full all three practice days this week. Neither are listed on the Friday Injury Report.

For the bad news, the Jaguars will be without starting Corner A.J. Bouye as he is dealing with a calf injury suffered in London prior to their matchup against the Eagles. The Jaguars will also most likely be without Defensive Tackle Eli Ankou due to a calf injury as he is listed as doubtful for this week. The Jaguars will also be without Rookie Cornerback Quenton Meeks Sunday as he nurses a knee injury.

The Jaguars also are potentially going to miss starting Linebacker Telvin Smith this week as he is listed as questionable. But no reports as of right now are indicating whether or not he should be good to go or not. For now, it is probably safe to assume Smith will play.

The rest of the Jaguars listed on the report are listed as questionable. This list includes McCray, O’Shaughnessy, and David Grinnage. If the Jaguars can get back their “starting” tight end in James O’Shaughnessy it could take some of the pressure off of Bortles as he was an easy outlet tight end for the quarterback early in the season.

Grinnage is a new addition to the report this week. This is possibly bad news for the Jaguars tight end.

Below are the teams’ injury reports:


CB A.J. Bouye (Calf): OUT

CB Quenton Meeks (Knee): OUT

DT Eli Ankou (Calf): Doubtful

LB Telvin Smith (Shoulder): Questionable

DE Lerentee McCray (Hamstring): Questionable

James O’Shaughnessy (Hip): Questionable

TE David Grinnage (Knee): Questionable


TE Erick Swoope (Knee): OUT

TE Ryan Hewitt (Ankle): OUT

S Mike Mitchell (Calf): OUT

T/G Denzelle Good (Illness): Questionable

WR Ryan Grant (Ankle): Questionable

CB Nate Hairston (Ankle): Questionable

DE Kemoko Turay (Neck): Questionable

For the Colts, they will be getting help this week. Their second-round pick Tyquan Lewis will come off of injured reserve in time to play this Sunday against the Jaguars. Backup safety Mike Mitchell will have to wait on his revenge on Jaguars Running Back Leonard Fournette as he is listed as out for this week.

One interesting injury to note is starting Strong safety Clayton Geathers was unlisted on the Colts injury report, however, he did not participate in Wednesday nor Friday’s practice. A little extra rest time for the safety.

Otherwise, the Colts are not missing many key players for this matchup and will enter the game relatively at full strength. The Jaguars are in a similar boat, where although they have placed several players on injured reserve, they will be getting back a couple of key players.

The Jaguars and the Colts kick off on CBS at 1PM EST.

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.
