The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Pittsburgh Steelers have released their Wednesday Injury Reports ahead of their week eleven matchup at TIAA Bank Field. For the Jaguars, they are looking to get back star cornerback A.J. Bouye into the lineup.

This should help with some of the secondary woes the Jaguars have had as far as communication. Clearly, Bouye is one of the major contributors to getting folks lined up as the Jaguars have failed to do so in his absence.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, the hits along the offensive line keep coming. Not only is Josh Walker unable to practice today, but Ereck Flowers is also going to be limited today with a  knee injury. Head Coach Doug Marrone suggested that Patrick Omameh was a possibility to play some left tackle as well as guard.

Rookie Cornerback Quenton Meeks is most likely not going to play again this week as he nurses a knee injury suffered in the Eagles matchup. With Meeks out Herndon will once again be active.

Jaguars defensive end Larentee McCray should see a return to action this week, however, he is listed on the injury report and will be limited. Telvin Smith and Tashaun Gipson are also listed on the Jaguars injury report.

Blake Bortles is not listed at all on the Jaguars injury report, however, there has been no indication of whether he is recovered from his should injury or not. More than likely this will be an injury to address in the offseason for the Jaguars Quarterback.

Marcell Dareus was a new addition to this week’s injury report. It is not known yet how servere his triceps injury is, however this will be a player to watch for tomorrow’s pratice and Friday’s walkthrough. Dareus has been healthy all of this season for the Jaguars.

Below are the Wednesday injury reports:


CB Quenton Meeks (Knee): Did Not Participate

DT Eli Ankou (Calf): Did Not Participate

OL Josh Walker (Foot/Ankle): Did Not Participate

CB A.J. Bouye (Calf): Limited Participation

DE Lerentee McCray (Hamstring): Limited Participation

OL Ereck Flowers (Knee): Limited Participation

DT Marcell Dareus (Triceps): Limited Participation

S Tashaun Gipson (Wrist): Full Participation

LB Telvin Smith (Shoulder): Full Participation


DE Stephen Tuitt (Elbow): Did Not Participate

OT Marcus Gilbert (Knee): Did Not Participate

Ben Roethlisberger (Coaches Decision): Did Not Participate

RB James Conner (Concussion): Full Participation

The major injuries for the Steelers as they set to take on the Jaguars are to James Conner with his concussion and Marcus Gilbert with the knee injury. Conner seems set to get out of the concussion protocol and should be good to go for Sunday, however, it is unclear if Gilbert will be ready to play. Because Conner practiced fully today, it can be assumed he plays this Sunday.

Stephen Tuitt is also nursing an injury and depending on how the rest of the week shapes out, could miss the game on Sunday. Tuitt missed today’s practice, however, his status will be known more after tomorrow’s practice.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a couple more roster moves this Friday after releasing Strong Safety Barry Church. The Jaguars have finally activated Tackle Josh Wells. Wells was placed on short-term injured reserve after week five with a groin injury.

This move comes at an opportune time as the Jaguars will be without Right Tackle Jermey Parnell. Wells will more than likely start at Right Tackle this week against the Redskins.

The Jaguars have also released Niles Paul from injured reserve, signed Lyndon Johnson from the teams practice squad, and placed OL Josh Walker on injured reserve.

Jaguars vs. Redskins: Friday Injury Report, Parnell Out, Lambo in Doubt

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Redskins have released their Friday final status/injury report of the week ahead of their week fifteen matchup at TIAA Bank Field. For the Jaguars, they will be without Jermey Parnell, D.J. Chark, and Josh Walker.

All three players are listed as out with various injuries. The Jaguars have a move they could potentially make in activating Tackle Josh Wells who has been practicing the past couple of weeks. D.J. Chark will miss his fourth consecutive game making his rookie season disappointing in the end, unfortunately.

The other major area of concern is kicker Josh Lambo being listed as Questionable. A little later in the day, the Jaguars signed Kicker Kai Forbath which suggests he will probably be out this Sunday against the Redkins. We will revisit this on Sunday when the inactive players are released.

Below are both teams status reports:


WR D.J. Chark Jr. (Quadricep): Out

RT Jermey Parnell (Knee): Out

OL Josh Walker (Ankle): Out

LB Lerentee McCray (Illness): Questionable

K Josh Lambo (Right Groin): Questionable


LB Ryan Anderson (Hamstring): Out

TE Jordan Reed (Ankle/Foot): Out

WR Josh Doctson (Concussion): Questionable

DE Matt Ioannidis (Shin): Questionable

OT Ty Neskhe (Knee): Questionable

OT Mogan Moses (Ankle): Questionable

LS Nick Sundberg (Back): Questionable

S Monte Nicholson (Illness): Questionable

RB Chris Thompson (Illness): Questionable

The Redskins have a much more lengthy status report than the Jaguars which is remarkable given how the Jaguars injuries have gone this season. Washington will be without at least a couple of starters including their starting Linebacker and Tight End. They also more than likely will be without a starting wide receiver in Josh Doctson.

Their Long Snapper Nick Sundberg has a high possibility of missing the game this Sunday as well because of a back injury. They have brought in a few long snappers to work out in the event he is not able to go.

Jaguars sign Kicker Kai Forbath in Wake of Josh Lambo Injury

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made a roster move in wake of the Josh Lambo right-groin injury. They have signed former Redskins and Vikings Kicker Kai Forbath. Forbath has a career FG% of 85.9% which is at the very least respectable in a league where kickers seem to be missing routine kicks daily now.

With Lambo potentially out the Jaguars were forced into a move. This could always be more of a cautionary move in the case Lambo does not play, but generally speaking, if a team signs a kicker near the end of the week it is not a good sign. We will see what happens when the last injury report comes out.
