The Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets have released their Thursday injury reports ahead of their week four matchup at TIAA Bank Field. For the Jaguars, the players to watch are still Leonard Fournette, T.J. Yeldon, A.J. Cann, and Calais Campbell. D.J. Hayden is said to be week-to-week so the most likely situation for him this week would be to expect him not to be available. He was the only Jaguars player on the injury report to miss practice today.

Josh Lambo, the kicker for the Jaguars, suffered a hip injury and missed practice. Although he should be ready to go this week against the Jets, it is still something to keep an eye on moving forward. Lambo is currently perfect for the season. He has yet to miss a kick thus far this season.

The Jaguars badly need star running back Leonard Fournette to be healthy this week against the Jets as their offense last week against a similar defense was abysmal. Without Yeldon at full health, the Jaguars running game never was able to get going and the six total points scored by the Jaguars reflected that. Calais Campbell who practiced full yesterday was limited today. He will be someone to watch for tomorrow’s report.

Below are the teams’ injury reports:


RB T.J. Yeldon (Ankle): Limited Participant

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

RB Leonard Fournette (Hamstring): Limited Participant

OL A.J. Cann (Triceps): Limited Participant

C Brandon Linder (Knee): Limited Participant

OL Jermey Parnell (Knee): Limited Participant

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Core Muscle Injury): Limited Participant

DL Calais Campbell (Ankle): Limited Participant

K Josh Lambo (Hip): Did Not Participate


DB Buster Skrine (Knee): Limited Participant

TE Neal Sterling (Concussion): Did Not Participate

WR Charone Peake (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

DB Doug Middleton (Knee/Finger): Limited Participant

LB Josh Martin (Concussion): Full Participant

DB Marcus Maye (Ankle/Foot): Limited Participant

DB JJ Wilcox (Wrist): Full Participant

OL Kelvin Beachum (Foot): Full Participant

OL Spencer Long (Shoulder/Knee): Full Participant

WR Terrelle Pryor (Ankle): Limited Participant

WR Quincy Enuwa (Back): Full Participant

DL Steve McLendon (Knee): Full Participant

OL James Carpenter (Ankle): Full Participant

WR Robby Anderson (Nose): Full Participant

For the most part, the Jets laundry list of an injury report has no changes. Buster Skrine being able to participate in some capacity is good for the Jets. However, Pryor going from a full participant yesterday to limited today could indicate he could be missing the game on Sunday.

Marcus Maye, the Jets starting safety was also limited for the second day in a row. It will be interesting to see his game status tomorrow.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released running back Jamaal Charles after trading for Carlos Hyde and have promoted Linebacker Nick DeLuca. Charles was brought in to be a change of pace back for the Jaguars after placing Corey Grant on season-ending injured reserve.

The Jaguars traded for Carlos Hyde last week making Charles expendable. Charles accounted for 7 yards on 6 caries for the Jaguars. He also added two catches for seven yards. Running back Leonard Fournette has not been ruled out to play this week either and will travel with the team to London according to Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone.

Nick DeLuca is a rookie linebacker from NDSU. He was signed to the practice squad earlier in the season and has now been promoted due to the injury to linebacker Donald Payne. Payne will be out at least a couple of weeks with a knee injury.

Editorial: The Jacksonville Jaguars have nailed their own coffin

In electing to stick with Blake Bortles as their starting quarterback, despite benching him for a poor performance against the Texans and watching his backup Cody Kessler vastly outperform him in the same game, the Jacksonville Jaguars have nailed their own coffin.

Now sitting at a 3-4 record, on a three game losing streak, and in third place in the AFC South (the Titans own the tiebreaker for second place), it was clearly time for change to get this ship steered in the correct direction. Just seven weeks aggo, this Jaguars team was viewed as a potential Super Bowl contender. Right now, this team is projected to pick in the first half of the 2019 NFL Draft.

And they can’t blame anyone but themselves at this point.

“We can’t do s**t until we stop turning the ball over. Period. That’s just how it is,” head coach Doug Marrone said following the loss to the Texans. “…the first thing we’ve got to do is stop turning the damn ball over.”

In three consecutive games, the latest of which he barely played past halftime, Bortles has eight turnovers of his own: Five interceptions and three fumbles.

“I spoke to both quarterbacks this afternoon and told them that Blake will be our team’s quarterback. I believe this gives us the best opportunity to win,” Marrone stated in a release from the team after Bortles was named the team’s starter going forward.


In a 24 hour period, Marrone has stated that, while turnovers are the Jaguars biggest issue, the player who is responsible for countless amounts of turnovers gives the team the best chance to win football games. That is the message that is being sent to this team, and the Jaguars fan base.

And the team isn’t happy. Star cornerback Jalen Ramsey was quoted saying “It is no secret what’s going on here right now. Ain’t nobody going to say it because we can’t, but it ain’t no secret what’s going on and it ain’t right right now,” after the loss to the Texans. Given the circumstances, it’s hard to assume this was shade thrown at the quarterback situation.

Ramsey deleted a post of him and Bortles shaking hands on the field from his Instagram this morning.

Defensive tackle Abry Jones put the responsibility of the offenses deficiencies on the defense, quoted saying “We can’t let them [opposing offenses] score at all.”

The Jaguars have chosen to be complacent, and in doing so, this season will continue to plummet. The confidence is low heading into London this week, and the Eagles pass rush should have an easy job forcing Bortles into more poor decisions as this Jaguars team appears to be on track to a 3-5 record at their bye week.

This team was supposed go contend this year. At one point in September, the Jaguars had single digit odds to win the Super Bowl. But that is all in the rearview mirror, as the Jaguars have nailed their own coffin in naming Blake Bortles the starting quarterback of a team that is already beginning to implode.

24 hours removed from his first career benching, where he was clearly outplayed by his own backup in a 20-7 loss to the Houston Texans, Blake Bortles has been named the starter for the Jacksonville Jaguars for Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles in London, per the team.

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone announced in a statement: “I spoke to both quarterbacks this afternoon and told them that Blake will be our team’s quarterback. I believe this gives us the best opportunity to win.”

This comes under two hours removed from Marrone saying he had made his decision already but planned on addressing the team before releasing that information to the public. Bortles was benched after committing two turnovers against the Texans on Sunday, and Kessler completed 21/30 passes for 156 yards, a touchdown and an interception in his place.

Bortles has committed eight turnovers in the past three weeks.
