The Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Giants have released their final injury reports of the week. The Friday injury reports are used as status checks and it shows who will or will not be participating in Sunday’s game.

On the Jaguars side, the worry going into the game was tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle injury), however it looks like he will play this weekend as he was a full participant in Friday’s practice.

Jalen Ramsey (ankle), Brandon Linder (knee), and Jeremy Parnell (knee) were also full participants. Every Jaguars player is healthy and will play against the Giants.

Here is a look at the Jaguars Friday injury report:

As for the Giants, they are expected to miss pass rusher Olivier Vernon who is out with a high-ankle sprain. This is significant news for the Jaguars as he is their best pass rusher as of right now.  The full Giants injury report is as follows:

LB Olivier Vernon (ankle): Did not participate

LB Tae Davis (hamstring): Did not participate

LB Lorenzo Carter (Illness): Full Participant

Vernon and Davis will be out of Sundays’ match up. Rookie linebacker Lorenzo Carter will play this weekend in place of Vernon.  The Jaguars should be going into this game with their heads up as it is very rare to have everyone fully healthy for any week in the NFL, including week one.

Except for losing Marqise Lee for the season, there have not been any significant injuries for the Jaguars this offseason, nor were there any significant injuries last season as a whole. This very well may be the healthiest Jaguars roster we will see this season, and they need to take full advantage of it.

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?’”
