  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Activated from PUP list

    Jacksonville activated Smoot (Achilles) from the reserve/PUP list Saturday, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Smoot partially tore his Achilles last December and began the 2023 campaign on the PUP list. He was able to return to practice in a limited fashion last week before being upgraded to a full participant this week. Smoot's activation means he is lined up to make his season debut Sunday against the Colts, and he should immediately help the Jaguars' pass rush.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Will return to practice

    Smoot (Achilles) was designated to return from the reserve/PUP list Wednesday.

    Smoot will now have 21 days to practice with the team before being added to the active roster. The 28-year-old suffered a partially torn Achilles last December and hasn't been able to practice with the team since, so he'll likely need most, if not all, of that three-week window to be ready to join the 53-man roster.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Out minimum of four games

    The Jaguars placed Smoot (Achilles) on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Smoot will need to miss at least the first four games of the season as he continues to recover from a partially torn Achilles tendon suffered last December. Once back to full health, expect Smoot to handle his usual rotational role in Jacksonville's defensive front.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Lands on PUP list

    Smoot (Achilles) was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday.

    Smoot is still recovering from a partially torn Achilles tendon suffered last December. However, with Jacksonville willing to sign him to a one-year $6.25 million deal Friday, and his placement on the active, not reserve, PUP list, he's likely to be ready sooner than later. He'll be able to compete once he can pass his physical.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Signs new deal with Jacksonville

    Smoot (Achilles) and the Jaguars agreed on a one-year, $6.25 million contract Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    With Smoot gearing up to visit the Ravens in the near future, Jacksonville stepped up and signed the defensive end to a new deal to keep him in town. The 28-year-old is still recovering from the torn right Achilles tendon he suffered in December, but when he's healthy, Smoot will be returning to the defensive unit in which he accumulated 21 tackles, including five sacks, in 2022.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Placed on IR

    Smoot (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Smoot suffered a torn Achilles in Thursday's victory over the Jets, but Monday's move to IR officially brings his season to an end. The 27-year-old will finish his 2022 campaign with 21 tackles, including five sacks, while also recording two pass deflections, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over 15 contests. In his absence, Arden Key and Corey Peters will likely see an increase in usage moving forward.

  • Jaguars' Dawuane Smoot: Confirms Achilles tear

    Smoot announced Sunday via his personal Instagram account that he suffered a season-ending torn right Achilles' tendon in Thursday's win over the Jets.

    The loss of Smoot is a significant blow to the Jacksonville defense, as the 27-year-old co-led the team in sacks (five) and ranked second in pressures. Given the nature and timing of his injury, Smoot could face an uphill battle to gain clearance for Week 1 of the 2023 season while he recovers from surgery.
