The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts have released their injury reports ahead of their week ten matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy. For the Jaguars they will apparently be without Cornerback A.J. Bouye this week. Bouye reportedly ruled himself out before Head Coach Doug Marrone’s press conference this afternoon. Marrone seemed to be confused by this as he was not informed Bouye had ruled himself out before.

Marrone was not too pleased about this news as he was not told this by the trainers or Bouye himself.

Other than that, the Jaguars will get back a few key players both on offense and defense including Leonard Fournette, D.J. Hayden, James O’Shaughnessy, and Tyler Patmon. Rookie Quenton Meeks is not practicing today as he recovers from his MCL injury. If the Jaguars are able to get Fournette back this week they hope to finally be able to assert their dominance in the run game against a weaker defensive line this week.

Blake Bortles will be listed on today’s injury report with a non-throwing shoulder injury. He is, however still expected to start this week. Fournette and Hayden were also full participants. All of the other players listed this week either practiced limited or did not participate.

As for the rest of the Jaguars, they are relatively healthy, however many of the ones who would have been listed on the report this week are already on injured reserve.

Below are the teams’ injury reports:

JAGUARS:

CB A.J. Bouye (Calf): Did Not Participate

CB Quenton Meeks (Knee): Did Not Participate

QB Blake Bortles (Left Shoulder): Full Participation

CB D.J. Hayden (Toe): Full Participation

RB Leonard Fournette (Hamstring): Full Participation

LB Lerentee McCray (Hamstring): Limited Participation

TE James O’Shaughnessy (Hip): Limited Participation

COLTS:

S Clayton Geathers (Knee): Did Not Participate

TE Ryan Hewitt (Ankle): Did Not participate

S Mike Mitchell (Calf): Did Not Participate

DT Hassan Ridgeway (Illness): Did Not Participate

TE Erik Swoope (Knee): Did Not Participate

WR Ryan Grant (Ankle): Limited Participation

CB Nate Hairston (Ankle): Limited Participation

S Malik Hooker (Hip): Limited Participation

RB Marlon Mack (Foot): Limited Participation

DE Kemoko Turay (Neck): Limited Participation

RB Robert Turbin (Shoulder): Limited Participation

G Braden Smith (Hand): Full Participation

As for the Colts, they have a laundry list of injuries. However, a few players stand out such as safety Malik Hooker, and Safety Clayton Geathers. Geathers did not participate. Both are starters for the Colts. Backup Strong Safety Mike Mitchell also did not participate with a calf. Those are a couple of players to keep an eye on for the Colts defense which has been playing much better this season.

This will be an interesting matchup to keep an eye on this week, especially as far as injuries go. For the Jaguars, we will find out more tomorrow and Friday. As of right now Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, and Jaguars Nickel D.J. Hayden should make this much-anticipated return.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have finalized their 2019 coaching staff. They’ve officially hired their offensive coordinator as well as other staff members. John DeFilippo was the headliner for today as the replacement for Nathaniel Hackett as offensive coordinator.

The Jaguars also announced the remainder of their staff. As we covered in the past couple of weeks they have hired several position coaches, including Terry Robiskie as running backs coach, George Warhop as the offensive line coach, and Tim Walton as the secondary coach.

The rest of the staff was a mystery until today. The Jaguars announced they will be promoting assistant defensive line coach Jason Rebrovich to defensive line coach, and they have hired David Merritt as their assistant defensive line coach. Merritt spent the past season as the Arizona Cardinals defensive backs coach. Joe Danna will be promoted as well and will be coaching the safeties. Danna has been on the Jaguars staff as an assistant secondary coach since 2017. John Donovan, another assistant coach for the Jaguars, will be promoted to assistant running backs coach.

It is worth noting in today’s presser Marrone stated Tim Walton will coach the cornerbacks, and Joe Danna will coach the safeties. “I thought we could get more out of our coaches and players if we split the secondary,” Marrone said. This is worth noting as Walton actually held a similar role with the Giants for the past couple of seasons.

Scott Milanovich will remain on staff as the quarterbacks coach. Milanovich was the play-caller for the final five weeks of the season. Milanovich has been with the Jaguars as a QB coach since 2017.

There were no other major coaching changes on the Jaguars roster as the rest of the staff will stay intact.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will retain Scott Milanovich as their quarterbacks coach, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Milanovich filled in as interim offensive coordinator after Nate Hackett was fired midseason, but the offense saw no improvement with the QB coach calling plays. However, the team appears confident that the former Grey Cup-winning CFL head coach can handle the responsibilities of quarterbacks coach, a position Milanovich has held since Doug Marrone was named head coach in 2017.

The team hired John DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator earlier today. You can read why he was a fantastic hire here. Marrone mentioned during his press conference today that Milanovich and DeFilippo have a previous relationship in Maryland.

Jaguars to hire John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator, per report

The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to hire John DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator, per report.

DeFilippo was the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator during the 2018 season, but was fired during Week 15, apparently due to a conflict of play-calling interests with head coach Mike Zimmer, who wanted to focus more on the run game than DeFilippo’s strengths with the pass game.

However, despite a lack of calling the run, Vikings quarterback had a historic season as a passer when it came to efficiency, being the first QB in NFL history to throw for 4000+ yards, 30+ touchdowns, 10 or fewer interceptions, and complete at least 70% of his passes. Much of this can be credited to DeFilippo’s influence in the passing game.

Previous to Minnesota, DeFilippo was the Philadelphia Eagles QBs coach during their 2017-18 Super Bowl run, where he was key to the development of Carson Wentz and rejuvenation of Nick Foles’ career after Wentz tore his ACL. He also served as offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns in 2015, where then-36 year old Josh McCown posted the second most touchdown passes of his 13 year career with 12 in eight games, along with 2109 passing yards, a 63.7 completion percentage, and only four interceptions.

DeFilippo’s first NFL coaching job came in 2005 as an offensive quality control coach under then New York Giants head coach and current EVP of Football Operations for the Jaguars, Tom Coughlin. So there’s a definite connection to the team in ths hire.

At the end of the day, the Jaguars number one priority this offseason has to be, and will be, fixing their passing game woes. Quarterback Blake Bortles needs to be replaced, and the team’s next signal caller must be groomed into a successful QB. DeFilippo has proven with Cousins, Foles/Wentz, as well as Josh McCown in Cleveland during the 2015 season, that he’s capable of doing just that.
