Jaguars vs. Dolphins: Wednesday Injury Report, Fournette Full Go

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins are getting set for their week sixteen matchup at Hard Rock Stadium. While their respective seasons may be completely over as far as playoffs are concerned, teams still have to suit up. For the Jaguars, they are going into this week already severely beaten up from the in-season injuries over the first half and latter part, now of the season. Ronnie Harrison was recently placed on injured reserve and Leonard Fournette hurt his foot yet again.

Fortunately for the Jaguars, Leonard Fournette was surprisingly able to participate fully in practice today. A few days ago when Ronnie Harrison was placed on injured reserve, Head Coach Doug Marrone also suggested Fournette would be limited this week. That, however, seems not to be the case as Fournette was able to get his normal reps in practice, or at least very close to it. D.J. Chark will not practice yet again.

At this point for Chark the Jaguars should have placed him on injured reserve and brought up someone else to play and get competitive minutes in. Alas, they did not, and Chark will simply be on the injury report likely for the remaining two games.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, it looks like Kai Forbath will again be the kicker this week. Josh Lambo was not able to participate in practice today with a groin injury. At this point in the week, it is not known whether or not he will for sure be inactive, but a DNP on Wednesday is never a good sign.

Below are the injury reports for both teams:

JAGUARS:

RB Leonard Fournette (Foot): Full Participation

K Josh Lambo (Right Groin): Did Not Participate

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

S Jerrod Wilson (Knee/Personal): Did Not Participate

OL Jermey Parnell (Knee): Did Not Participate

DOLPHINS:

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

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

CB Xavian Howard (Knee): Limited Participation

CB Cornell Armstrong (Ankle): Limited Participation

LB Kiko Alonso (Knee/Hamstring): Limited Participation

T Laremy Tunsil (Knee): Limited Participation

LS John Denney (Finger/Hamstring): Limited Participation

WR Danny Amendola (Knee): Did Not Participate

DT Ziggy Hood (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

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

Whew. The Dolphins have a loaded injury report and it is hard to tell if this is one of those Bill Belichick injury reports, or if it’s legit. Either way, there are a few concerns here, especially at major positions. For example, the Dolphins are possibly going to be without their starting QB Ryan Tannehill for this matchup.

Tannehill was able to play last week against the Vikings, however, there is a chance he will not play this week as he is still limited in practice.

A couple of other concerns are from the Dolphins RB and CB psoitions. Although they were fully participants, having two of your starting RBs on the injury report and one other starting RB on injured reserve (Frank Gore), it is never a good sign.

Otherwise, we will have to wait for more injury reports to be released to see a more legitimate breakdown of who will suit up and who will not suit up.

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.

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?’”
