The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins have released their Thursday injury report for this week. For the Jaguars, they have a few key players still unavailable and it looks as though receiver D.J. Chark will yet again miss Sunday’s game. Chark has not played since he injured his quad in the game against Pittsburgh. It is not yet known whether or not Chark will be available for the season finale next week, but the Jaguars have kept him off of injured reserve this long already.

As for the rest of the Jaguars injuries, they will still be without kicker Josh Lambo as he is recovering from a right groin injury. Kicker Kai Forbath will assume the starting kicker role for at least another week. Meanwhile, Jermey Parnell was seen working on the side at practice today so that is a better indication of his health. It is still not yet known, however, if he will suit up for this weeks game or next weeks game.

Leonard Fournette practiced fully today for the second consecutive game with a foot injury. Fournette’s career as a Jaguar running back has been marred with injuries and suspensions (2 games total over his first two years). Unfortunately, there seems to be a reoccurring theme now with Fournette and injuries. Nevertheless, Fournette will likely suit up this week.

Below are both teams injury reports:


RB Leonard Fournette (Foot): Full Participation

S Jerrod Wilson (Perosnal): Full Participation

K Josh Lambo (Right Groin): Did Not Participate

WR D.J. Chark Jr. (Quad): Did Not Participate

OL Jermey Parnell (Knee): Did Not Participate


WR Danny Amendola (Knee): Full Participation

CB Cornell Armstrong (Ankle): Full Participation

WR DeVante Parker (Shoulder): Full Participation

S Reshad Jones (Shoulder): Full Participation

RB Kalen Ballage (Hip): Full Participation

RB Kenyan Drake (Shoulder): Full Participation

C Travis Swanson (Ankle): Full Participation

T Ja’Wuan James (Shoulder): Full Participation

LS John Denney (Finger/Hamstring): Full Participation

QB Ryan Tannehill (R.Shoulder/Ankle): Limited Participation

CB Xavian Howard (Knee): Limited Participation

DT Ziggy Hood (Hamstring): Limited Participation

LB Kiko Alonso (Knee/Hamstring): Limited Participation

T Laremy Tunsil (Knee): Limited Participation

S T.J. McDonald (Ankle): Did Not Participate

DT Kendrick Norton (Ankle): Did Not Participate

For the Dolphins, they were able to get a couple people back at practice including receiver Danny Amendola. However, they also were still limited with Kiko Alonso (their starting MLB). T.J. McDonald, the Dolphins starting Strong Safety did not participate for the second consecutive day. This indicates he will not suit up on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Cornerback Xavian Howard, who recently stated if he had one, he would not waive a no-trade clause to come to the Jaguars, was limited in practice again today. The Dolphins do not yet know if he will be able to play this Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill was limited in practice for the second consecutive day. If he cannot suit up, the Dolphins will once again turn to Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback. A Quarterback which the Jaguars know all too well.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have apparently fined LB Telvin Smith for missing three days of mandatory minicamp. This amount, according to Telvin Smith on Instagram, was for a total of $88,650. Telvin Smith decided to leave the game of football for a year last month and has not shown up to any team activities since the season ended in January.

Smith stated in his Instagram post “Oh y’all  thght [sic] it was a game!!! You say you wanna sit & get ya life right. . . they say nah […] you pay me!!!” also stating “It’s still love!!”

The Jaguars have every right to fine Smith under the current CBA signed in 2011 regarding mandatory participation in team activities. Smith has not yet informed the Jaguars officially of his intentions for the 2019 season, thus he is still considered a part of the team and on the 90-man roster.

It is not yet known whether or not the team has opted to fine DE Yannick Ngakoue who was also missing from mandatory minicamp last week as he resolves his contract with the team.

REPORT: Jaguars sign WR Tre McBride and DT Kalani Vakameilao

Demetrius Harvey



The Jacksonville Jaguars announced today the signings of WR Tre McBride and Rookie DT Kalani Vakameilalo. Both players had a tryout during yesterday’s minicamp practice. They have waived LB Nick DeLuca and LS Christian Kuntz to make room.

McBride has played for the Tennesee Titans, Chicago Bears, and the New York Jets during his time in the NFL. In 2017 he hauled in eight receptions for 144 yards. His lone touchdown came in 2015 with the Tennesee Titans. The Jaguars currently have 12 WRs on the roster including McBride. They will enter training camp for a battle for possibly five or six spots. Currently, it would be a surprise if McBride makes the team.

Vakameilao went undrafted out of Oregon State where he posted 75 tackles, including 13.5 tackles for loss.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially wrapped up their 2019 NFL Draft class with the signing of third-round pick Quincy Williams the team has announced today. Williams played college football at Murray State as a linebacker and safety and will be playing LB with the Jaguars.

Following the departure of WLB Telvin Smith, the Jaguars needed to find a replacement, and they hope Williams can eventually develop into that role. During OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Williams has taken some first-team reps at LB along with LB Ramik Wilson. The WLB battle will be one to watch during training camp later this summer.

Williams spoke briefly following the signing of his contract stating, “I’ve been dreaming on this and waiting on this moment my whole life,” Williams said. “I’m just here to answer the question of, ‘Who is Quincy Williams?’”
