The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dallas Cowboys have released their Wednesday injury reports ahead of their week six matchup at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.  The Jaguars are coming into this game with a slew of injuries.

Not only are Jaguars Runningback Leonard Fournette (Hamstring) and Nickelback D.J. Hayden (Toe) already ruled out, the Jaguars are also expected to rule out starting Left Tackle Josh Wells. With Wells out backup Tackle Josh “Don’t call me Jose” Walker will start in his place.

The Jaguars also already lost Runningback Corey Grant and Tight End Austin Seferian-Jenkins (short-term IR) for the season or at least most of it in Seferian-Jenkins’ case.  The Jaguars signed David Williams and Jamaal Charles to replace Corey Grant and Brandon Wilds, and they elevated David Grinnage from their own practice squad to replace Seferian-Jenkins.

As if those injuries weren’t enough, according to Daniel Popper of The Athletic, starting Left Guard Andrew Norwell was seen in a walking boot this week. Hopefully, this is just preventative or precautionary because he was also listed with a foot injury last week and did not practice on Monday.

Malik Jackson (Back) did not participate today. This is not a concern unless he does not practice all week. Yannick Ngakoue (Shoulder) was limited. He is in the same boat as Jackson.

We will monitor this situation as the week moves on. The rest of the Jaguars on the injury report are either minor or pre-existing which have not gotten worse.

Here are the teams Wednesday injury reports:

JAGUARS:

DL Calais Campbell (Ankle): Limited Participant

RB Leonard Fournette (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

CB D.J. Hayden (Toe): Did Not Participate

CB Tre Herndon (Hamstring): Did Not participate

DT Malik Jackson (Back): Did Not Participate

OL Brandon Linder (Knee): Did Not Participate

DE Yannick Ngakoue (Shoulder): Limited Participant

OL Andrew Norwell (Foot): Did Not Participate

OL Jeremy Parnell (Knee): Limited Participant

OL Josh Wells (Groin): Did Not Participate

COWBOYS:

WR Tavon Austin (Shoulder): Full Participant

CB Chidobe Awuzie (Ankle): Limited Participant

WR Cole Beasley (Ankle): Full Participant

DE Taco Charlton (Thumb): Limited Participant

DT Maliek Collins (Knee): Limited Participant

RB Ezekiel Elliott (Knee): Full Participant

DL David Irving (Not Injury Related): Did Not Participate

DE DeMarcus Lawrence (Shoulder): Did Not Participate

LB Sean Lee (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

FB Jamize Olawae (Shoulder): Full Participant

T Tyron Smith (Ankle): Limited Participant

LB Joe Thoms (Foot): Did Not Participate

DT Antwaun Woods (Calf): Full Participate

For the Cowboys, Demarcus Lawrence typically has been limited on Wednesday, however this time he did not practice. While this is likely nothing, it is still something to watch for throughout the week.

Linebacker Sean Lee has always been injured during his career with the Cowboys. This year is no different as Lee most likely will be out this week. As for the rest of the Cowboys, they are all relatively healthy and we will find out more in the coming days.

REPORT: Jaguars expected to “move on” from QB Blake Bortles

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Jacksonville Jaguars are “set to move on” from quarterback Blake Bortles this offseason.

“I’m told Blake Bortles’ future does not include the Jacksonville Jaguars,” Rapoport stated. “They are expected to move on from him in this offseason… certainly his time in Jacksonville is coming to an end.”

Rapoport said the team will most likely not be able to trade Bortles due to the size of his contract, but the dead money hit of $16.5 million can be split over the next two years.

Bortles was benched in favor of backup QB Cody Kessler in Week 13. He signed a three year, $54 million extension with the club last February.

Jaguars Bulldozed by Henry and the Titans in Route to 30-9 Loss

JAGUARS GAME RECAP

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans kicked off tonight for their second matchup of the season. After getting beat 9-6 in the first matchup in Jacksonville, the Jaguars hoped to enact their revenge this week in Nashville.

A couple of lineup changes included Barry Church being inactive with Ronnie Harrison starting at Strong Safety, and Taven Bryan starting for Malik Jackson at defensive tackle. Bryan starting there is a sign that perhaps Jackson will not be with the Jaguars for much longer.

The Jaguars started the game on defense and could not stop the run to save their lives with Abry Jones out, and Ali Ankou/Taven Bryan taking most of the opening drive snaps. A long 73-yard touchdown drive ended in a Derrick Henry four-yard touchdown.

The Jaguars could do nothing in the run game on their opening drive of the game and could not protect when needed to on a key third down. On the Titans’ second possession of the game new starting Strong Safety Ronnie Harrison was able to take advantage of an errant Marcus Mariota throw picking it off and setting the Jaguars up with a decent starting field position.

After the Jaguars drive stalled, the Jaguars were able to get on the board anyways with the Titans punt returner muffed the football. It ended up being picked right back up, however, he ran into the end zone for a safety. 7-2 Titans.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, they simply are not a good team. After getting to the Titans three-yard line, Leonard Fournette could not push the ball in at all and unfortunately, the Jaguars turned it over on downs. The Titans play immediately following was a dreadful 99-yard touchdown run by Derrick Henry. The worst play by the Todd Wash led Jaguars defense.

The Jaguars wouldn’t be able to do anything with their following offensive possessions and the Titans were able to net just a field goal, making the score 16-2 Titans.

A little fun fact before halftime:

After the Jaguars received the ball to start the second half, there were a couple of good plays by Running Back Leonard Fournette. Unfortunately, both good runs were called back due to phantom holding penalties.

One key point to take away from this matchup is the inability to tackle by the Jaguars defense. They were terrible all game, and it showed. Missed tackles by 25, 21, 48, 50, and 36 occurred from the start of the game to shortly into the third quarter.

The missed tackles wouldn’t stop there. The Jaguars defense got gashed again right before surrendering a 16yard TD run by Henry yet again. The bleeding would not stop there as the Yulee Bulldozer was not done yet. On the next Titans possession, he took one carry for a 54-yard touchdown. With five minutes remaining in the third quarter, Henry had 11 cares for 219 and four touchdowns. Easily the best game of Henry’s career.

The following possession was all DeDe Westbrook as he was able to account for 37 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars offense had a little life on an otherwise lifeless night.

30-9 Titans final score.

THREE PLAYS OF THE GAME

  • Punt/Safety
    The Jaguars first points of the day came on a mistake by the Titans punt returner who muffed a punt and proceeded to run into the end zone to get tackled for a safety.
  • Ronnie Harrison first career interception
    After a poor throw by Titans Quarterback Marcus Mariota, Jaguars starting Strong Safety Ronnie Harrison was able to snag his first career interception. Although the Jaguars defense did not do well at all tonight, they were able to at least come away with this.
  • DeDe Westbrook Touchdown
    DeDe Westbrook was able to have a nice night even though the rest of the Jaguars offense was not.

JAGUARS PLAYER OF THE GAME:

Cody Kessler:

Although the Jaguars were not able to do much at all as far as offense, Cody Kessler still was able to at least do all he could and did not turn the ball over. Kessler was under pressure nearly the entire game and did not have nearly enough time to do anything in the way of passing the football on key downs. Kessler finished the game 25-48 for 240 yards and one touchdown. Many will say Kessler did not do enough, but in my opinion he did what he could tonight, and never quit even though he was under pressure almost every play. There were also several long drops by Jaguars receivers.

FINAL WHISTLE

The Jaguars are bad. That much has been obvious all season, but it was put in the spotlight on national television tonight. Some of this has to do with injuries, some with talent, but the most damning factor was just lack of effort. There was no fight in the 4-8 Jaguars. No life at all on defense when they played probably their best 60 minutes of football just a few days ago.

The amount of missed tackles, blown assignments, and straight up poor effort on defense is inexcusable. For the Jaguars to say this game was about pride afterward is a shame, as there was nothing to be proud of at all. Expect some big-time changes to be made after the season, if not before.

The Jaguars will return to TIAA Bank Field next week against the Washington Football Team at 1 PM. There should be zero expectations for this game.

Jaguars vs. Titans Inactives: Barry Church a Healthy Scratch

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans have released their inactive reports ahead of their matchup tonight in Nashville. For the Jaguars, the biggest surprise is Strong Safety Barry Church being inactive after being benched last week for Rookie Safety Ronnie Harrison.

Church’s time in Jacksonville has seemingly come to an end after signing a long-term contract prior to the 2017 campaign. Harrison will assume the starting role for presumably the remainder of the season and the Jaguars likely will move on from Church during the offseason.

The Jaguars would save $6.25 million from releasing Barry Church after this season. They are currently expected to be above the cap, so expect more moves including this one from Church to be made after the season.

Abry Jones is also inactive and Eli Ankou will assume his snaps. With D.J. Chark inactive for the third straight week, Rashad Greene will continue to get snaps at receiver with Moncrief, Cole, and Westbrook.

JAGUARS:

TITANS:

There are no surprises from the Titans inactive report.
