The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Redskins have released their week fifteen injury reports ahead of their matchup at TIAA Bank Field. For the Jaguars, they are still suffering from an entire season of not being healthy. D.J. Chark was not expected to practice today, and likely will be out yet again this Sunday. Leon Jacobs, who injured his quad last Thursday against the Titans is not practicing either.

An often-injured offensive line is still injured and apparently will be adding another member to the list with tackle Jermey Parnell. Parnell exited for a period with a knee injury. Luckily the Jaguars are going to seemingly get back Abry Jones this week as his shin injury has healed enough to practice fully. The Jaguars should be fine otherwise as far as injuries go. One player who isn’t listed on the Jaguars injury report is Josh Wells. Wells was reportedly set to be activated this week, however, he still has not been. He is eligible at any point within the next two weeks.

It is not yet known whether or not the Jaguars will opt to activate Wells in a lost season, however, if he is ready to play and Parnell is still nursing the knee injury then they should at least consider it.

Below are both teams’ injury reports:


OL Josh Walker (Ankle): Full Participation

TE James O’Shaughnessy (Ankle): Full Participation

NT Abry Jones (Shin): Full Participation

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

LB Leon Jacobs (Quad): Did Not Participate

OL Jermey Parnell (Knee): Did Not Participate


CB Greg Stroman (Shoulder): Full Participation

RB Adrian Peterson (Shoulder): Limited Participation

LB Shaun Dion Hamilton (Shoulder): Limited Participation

T Trent Williams (Thumb/Wrist): Limited Participation

C Chase Roullier (Knee): Limited Participation

T Morgan Moses (Ankle): Limited Participation):

WR Jamison Crowder (Ankle): Limited Participation

QB Colt McCoy (Fibula): Did Not Participate

WR Josh Doctson (Concussion): Did Not Participate

LB Ryan Anderson (Hamstring): Did Not Participate

OL Tony Bergstrom (Knee/Ankle): Did Not participate

T Ty Nsekhe (Knee): Did Not Participate

TE Jordan Reed (Ankle/Foot): Did Not Participate

DL Matt Ioannidis (Shin): Did Not Participate

Washington has a laundry list of injuries this week. Suddenly looking as anemic as the Jaguars at the quarterback position after losing Alex Smith for the season (and possibly longer) and Colt McCoy. Both tackles, two starting wide receivers, a starting tight end, and many more are listed on Washingtons injury report.

The Jaguars will face Quarterback Josh Johnson this Sunday who admittedly had to use Madden in order to learn his teammates’ names. We will get a better picture of who will play this week from tomorrows’ injury report.

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.

Jaguars will retain quarterbacks coach Scott Milanovich

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.
