The Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Giants have released their Thursday injury reports. On the Jaguars front, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was the only member of the team to not practice at all Wednesday due to a core muscle injury, however he returned today on a limited basis.

On the Giants front, the key player on their injury report was DE/OLB Olivier Vernon, out due to a high-ankle sprain. Depending on how the rest of the week plays out, the Giants could be without one of their best pass-rushers, and the Jaguars should have their starting tight end on the field.

Jaguars All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey was recently added to the injury report as well with an ankle injury. He was limited in practice today. There has been no indication whether or not Ramsey will miss Sunday’s game, but it seems as if this is simply precautionary.

JAGUARS

C Brandon Linder (knee): Limited participant

RT Jermey Parnell (knee): Limited participant

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle): Limited parcicipant

CB Jalen Ramsey (ankle): Limited Participant

GIANTS

LB Olivier Vernon (ankle): Did not participate

LB Tae Davis (hamstring): Did not participate

LB Lorenzo Carter (Illness): Limited Participant

With Jalen Ramsey being added to the injury report, many Jaguars fans may begin to worry, however it does not seem to be very serious. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins practiced on a limited basis today which is good news for the squad. Linder and Parnell continuing to be limited should not cause concern as neither seem to be in doubt heading into week one.

For the Giants, Vernon and Davis missed practice for the second day in a row, seriously hurting the chances of either player suiting up in Sunday’s match up. Lorenzo Carter was their only new addition to the report as he was limited with an illness. If Vernon cannot play, this would be great for the Jaguars offensive line as he is one of the Giants only threats at defensive end/outside linebacker.

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?’”
