The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles have released their Thursday injury reports ahead of their week eight game in London at Wembley Stadium. The Jaguars are severely hurt for what seems like the seventh straight game of the season.

This is easily the most the Jaguars have been hurt in the two seasons Doug Marrone has been the Jaguars Head Coach. The newest hurt is Cornerback A.J. Bouye, and apparently, it is more severe than previously expected. According to Mark Long of the Associated Press has stated “several” players said Jaguars Pro Bowl Cornerback A.J. Bouye (calf) won’t play in London.

Later, Long tweeted the two players Tyler Patmon, and A.J. Bouye will not be traveling to London with the team today, thus ruling them out for their matchup on Sunday

If Bouye cannot go this Sunday that would likely lead to the Jaguars playing two rookies in place of himself, D.J. Hayden, and Tyler Patmon. None of these three defensive backs are thought to be able to practice today or play in the game this Sunday.

In their place would be Jaguars rookie Defensive Backs, Quenton Meeks and Tre Herndon. Meeks will likely start outside with Herndon in the slot. While the Jaguars are very high on the young rookie defensive backs, surely they did not want nor expect both of them to be starting midway through the season. Rookie Safety Ronnie Harrison will also likely be seeing time in the slot.

The Jaguars also have placed Linebacker Donald Payne, a special teams standout on injured reserve with a knee injury. Payne was replaced by linebacker Nick Deluca earlier in the week and will now officially be replaced with Rookie Defensive Back Dee Delaney. The Jaguars signed Delaney as a UDFA out of Miami immediately following the draft. He has been on the practice squad since final cuts in August.

The usual suspects to miss practice this week will still be missing practice for the Jaguars. Jaguars Running Back Leonard Fournette, and Defensive Back D.J. Hayden will miss practice for the fourth and fifth consecutive weeks, respectively. Jaguars Tight End James O’Shaughnessy will also be missing practice.

The new additions to the Jaguars injury report include defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. Dareus was out with an illness. Fowler was limited with a groin injury. Tomorrow’s status update will be huge for both players.

Below are the teams’ injury reports:


RB Leonard Fournette (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

DB Tyler Patmon (Neck): Did Not Participate

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

TE James O’Shaughnessy (Hip): Did Not Participate

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

DT Marcell Dareus (Illness): Did Not Participate

LB Donald Payne (Knee): Did Not Participate (IR)

DE Dante Fowler Jr. (Groin): Limited Participation

DE Calais Campbell (Ankle/Hip): Full Participation

LG Andrew Norwell (Foot): Full Participation

RG Jermey Parnell (Shoulder): Full Participation

C Brandon Linder (Knee): Full Participation

DB Tre Herndon (Hamstring): Full Participation


DT Haloti Ngata (Calf): Limited Participation

LB D.J. Alexander (Quadricep): Limited Participation

T Lane Johnson (Ankle): Limited Participation

T Jason Peters (Biceps): Limited Participation

QB Carson Wentz (Back): Full Participation

RB Darren Sproles (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

DE Derek Barnett (Shoulder): Did Not Participate (IR)

LB Nathan Gerry (Ankle, Knee): Did Not Participate

S Corey Graham (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

CB Sidney Jones (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

For the Eagles, they will already be without Derek Barnett as he was placed on injured reserve this week with a shoulder injury. After Barnett, Sproles has been one of the most injured players for their team with a hamstring issue, he also is unlikely to play this week against the Jaguars.

The Jaguars also might not have to worry too much of Jason Peters as he is dealing with a Biceps injury. Although he will likely play, playing with a torn biceps cannot be an easy feat, and he will definitely have his hands full this week with Jaguars defensive ends Ngakoue and Campbell.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFLN, the following players did not travel with the Eagles to London and are ruled out: LB Nathan Gerry, CB Sidney Jones, and RB Darren Sproles. The Jaguars will have their work cut out for them, but the Eagles are not fully healthy either.

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

Zach Goodall




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.
