Saubert was on the field for 13 snaps in Week 7, all on special teams. He's now appeared in two games in 2020.
Allen practiced in full Friday, confirming coach Doug Marrone's claim that the 2019 first-rounder is on track to suit up Sunday. He'll make his return after a two-game absence and look to build on his season total of two sacks.
Chark led Jacksonville in targets again, but he was once again inefficient despite seeing notable volume and a favorable gamescript. The third-year wideout and quarterback Gardner Minshew rarely seemed to be on the same page Sunday, as a number of Chark's targets came in the form of low or off target throws. The lack of a connection was perhaps most reliable on Jacksonville's final drive of the game, as Minshew threw a deep ball out of bounce to Chark, who nearly reeled it in, on third and eight. Then, on fourth and eight to essentially seal the game, Minshew missed a wide open Chark for what would have been a first down. The 2018 second-round pick was limited in practice all week due to an ankle issue, so it's possible that his efficiency issues can be blamed in part on injuries. Whatever the case, Chark will look to get right during Jacksonville's Week 8 bye.
Armstead was expected to challenge for the top job at running back following the release of Leonard Fournette in late August, but the second-year player has struggled to bounce back since initially testing positive for COVID-19 in the summer. According to Schefter, Armstead has been hospitalized on two occasions after experiencing a variety of symptoms of the coronavirus, including significant respiratory issues. The Jaguars believe the 23-year-old will be able to return to action at full strength in 2021, but even if his condition improves in the weeks to come, Armstead won't be rushed back for the second half of the current season.
It was a disappointing follow-up to Cole's 143-yard eruption against the Lions last week, but the Chargers pass rush gave Gardner Minshew little time to let routes develop downfield and the production of the entire WR corps suffered. Cole is on pace for a career-best season heading into Jacksonville's Week 8 bye, but he could be catching passes from a different quarterback on the other side of the break, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.
Claybrooks started the week as a non-participant in practice but has made substantial progress and will be good to go Sunday. The rookie seventh-rounder out of Memphis played every defensive snap in a Week 5 loss to the Texans, recording five solo tackles and two pass breakups, but that was only because CJ Henderson (shoulder) was inactive. Henderson is set to return to the lineup Sunday, though, indicating that Claybrooks will revert to a rotational role.
The 27-year-old announced his retirement in August but was reinstated from the reserve/retirement list last week, but he wasn't yet on the active roster due to an exemption. Lynch had six tackles and two sacks in 13 games for the Bears in 2019 and should fill a rotational role at defensive end for the Jaguars.
Scott could see opportunities to compete for slot reps when he's cleared to join teammates at training camp. His placement on the COVID-19 list doesn't necessarily mean that Scott has tested positive for the virus, as the list also encompasses players who have come in to close contact with someone who has tested positive.
Jones sat out Jacksonville's Week 6 loss to the Lions due to his ankle injury, and the Jaguars have now deemed the issue severe enough that he'll have to sit out at least the next three games. As long as Jones remains sidelined, Doug Costin will stand to continue handling increased defensive snaps.
Godwin is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The 24-year-old landed on injured reserve ahead of the season opener but is now fully clear of the abdominal injury. Williams had 48 tackles in 11 games as a rookie last season and could compete with Cassius Marsh for reps at strongside linebacker.
Robinson exited early in Sunday's loss to the Bengals and didn't return, but it's encouraging that he avoided a serious injury. There's still no clear timeline for his return, so his practice status will be important to monitor ahead of a Week 5 matchup versus the Texans.
Allen started Sunday's game at strong-side linebacker but left early in the first quarter. He was initially considered probable to return but downgraded to questionable after going to the locker room. Myles Jack (ankle) is inactive Sunday as well, so Kamalei Correa and Quincy Williams should be every-down linebacker for the time being.
This means Richardson will presumably be Cam Robinson's full-time backup. The 24-year-old went into the 2019 season primarily as a guard, but ended up filling in across the line. He will now focus primarily on protecting Gardner Minshew's blindside if called upon.
The 2017 third-round pick began the season without a sack in 24 career games, but he took advantage of increased defensive snaps in 2019. Smoot found success despite working as a rotational defensive end, and he could be in line for a larger workload in 2020 given the impending free agency of Yannick Ngakoue.
McDermott has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with someone who has. He'll need to pass the NFL's COVID-19 protocols before returning to the team.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
Lambo missed the last four games with a hip injury but returned to action for Sunday's AFC showdown. The Jaguars scored four touchdowns but opted to go for two points three times for strategic reasons, leaving Lambo with an underwhelming fantasy finish. This was more of a case of bad luck than a measure of the coaching staff's faith in Lambo, and he should be a decent fantasy option when the Texans come to town after the Week 8 bye. The Texans have allowed 31 points per game but have a decent red-zone defense, allowing opponents to score on 62.5 percent of trips, 13th in the league.
If the Jaguars wanted Oliver to be eligible to return, they would've had to wait until Sept. 6 to place him on injured reserve. As is, the 2019 third-round pick will miss the entire 2020 campaign while he recovers from surgery on a broken foot. Oliver missed 12 games last year with hamstring and back injuries, so his luck couldn't be much worse through two pro seasons. Meanwhile, Tyler Eifert is left with light competition for TE targets in Jacksonville.
Linder briefly left the contest while being evaluated for a concussion, but the league's independent doctors gave him the go-ahead to return. He'll assume his usual starting center role.
Jones wasn't diagnosed with a concussion after being examined on the sideline, but a back injury will nonetheless keep him out of action Sunday. In his stead, Tre Herndon should play an every-down role on defense, while Josiah Scott and Chris Claybrooks also are mix in for increased snaps.
Jacobs had to be carted off the field Thursday, and Friday's MRI confirms a near worst-case scenario for the third-year pro. Jacksonville's defense has surrendered an average of 109 rushing yards per contest through three weeks, and the loss of Jacobs stands to further detract from the front seven's ability to stop the run. Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen appear in line to handle increased defensive snaps going forward.
The 23-year-old began the season in a reserve role, but Jalen Ramsey's early-season injury and subsequent trade led to Herndon starting 14 games. Herndon, a 2018 undrafted free agent, saw significant defensive playing time in only two games last season, so his increased role in 2019 was a major step forward. The Jaguars are set to return the entirety of their cornerback room in 2020, but Herndon still remains on track for a sizable role, barring a significant addition via the draft or free agency.
The 26-year-old tied for second on the team in tackles while once again playing every defensive snap. Jones and Joe Schobert are tied for the team lead with 56 total tackles heading into the Week 8 bye.
Hammond is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The veteran receiver's first touchdown of the season gave the Jaguars their last lead of the afternoon late in the third quarter, as the Bolts went on to score the game's final 17 points. It's the second straight game in which Conley has caught only one pass, and he's seen just 10 targets from Gardner Minshew over the last four contests as the Jags' No. 4 wideout. Jacksonville could shake up its passing game during its Week 8 bye, however, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.
Glennon joined Jacksonville's practice squad after being released in the last round of cuts. However, he was promoted earlier in the week and will serve as the backup quarterback over Jake Luton.
The rookie fifth-round pick entered Sunday's game with only two receptions for 17 yards, but he saw his highest snap count of the season (23) with DJ Chark (ankle) exiting due to injury. Johnson still ranked last among Jacksonville's active wideouts in playing time, so without another injury to the group, he seems unlikely to be significantly more involved in the offense.
The Jaguars placed Westbrook on injured reserve Monday, leaving the team with five receivers on the active roster. The season-ending setback comes at a tough time for Westbrook, who was bound for free agency this offseason. Given that he may not be back to full health for the start of the 2021 season, he could remain unsigned deep into the summer. Westbrook's stock had already dropped steeply before he suffered the ACL tear, as the 26-year-old had essentially been squeezed out of Jacksonville's rotation at receiver following back-to-back 60-catch campaigns. He was active for just the second time all season Sunday, playing all 11 of his snaps on special teams.
Luton beat out Mike Glennon for a spot on the roster at the end of training camp. However, Glennon will now receive the nod over him to serve as the backup quarterback in Week 1 against the Colts.
After back-to-back relative duds Weeks 5 and 6, Robinson racked up at least 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time since Week 4 with the help of a season-high in rushes. He also recorded two TDs in a game for the second time in seven contests to bring his total on the campaign to six scores. Sunday marked the return of Devine Ozigbo to the lineup, but he didn't have a touch before injuring his hamstring. In fact, Robinson was the sole Jags running back to make an appearance in the box score, as Dare Ogunbowale also was blanked. Moving forward, Robinson is the clear top RB in Jacksonville, especially with Chris Thompson on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Ryquell Armstead expected to miss the season to complications from the illness.
The Chargers' running backs had only 18 carries on 81 offensive plays, so Schobert did fairly well to still lead the team in tackles. The 26-year-old and Josh Jones are tied for the team lead with 56 total tackles heading into the bye week.
Ozigbo spent the first six weeks of the season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury, and upon his return to the lineup, the second-year running back aggravated the injury. It's unclear how severe his current injury is, but there's a good chance he will miss time again due to the recurring nature of this issue. James Robinson and Dare Ogunbowale are currently the only two healthy running backs on Jacksonville's roster because Chris Thompson is on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Jaguars have a Week 8 bye before returning to action against the Texans.
Cottrell is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He'll be eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The 23-year-old dealt with a core-muscle injury during practice last week but suited up Sunday against the Texans, only to aggravate the issue. It's unclear how long Wingard is expected to be sidelined, but he'll need to spend at least the next three games on injured reserve.
Pleasants is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
Meadors was promoted to the Vikings' active roster last Saturday prior to the team's season opener against the Packers. Assuming he clears waivers, his most likely destination is back to Minnesota's practice squad.
Miller last played in 2015, but he started 47 games over five years with the 49ers. The 33-year-old is making a comeback with hopes of securing a roster spot with the Jags. If he earns the job, he'll mainly pave the way for Leonard Fournette and Chris Thompson.
Quinn is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. The former Washington player is eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The 26-year-old exited last week's loss to the Lions due to the injury and will be sidelined for at least one game. Wilson spent three games on injured reserve earlier in the season with a hamstring issue, though it's unclear if he aggravated that injury or is dealing with a separate issue. According to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union, Brandon Watson is expected to receive the start in Wilson's place.
The fact that Thompson is back with the team suggests that he's cleared all health-related protocols since landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. Jacksonville has yet to formally reinstate Thompson to the 53-man roster, but that should happen before the team's next game Nov. 8 versus the Texans. Once activated, expect Thompson to return to a low-usage change-of-pace role behind top running back James Robinson.
The tight end tied Laviska Shenault for second on the team in receptions, as the entire Jaguars passing game struggled while Gardner Minshew was under consistent pressure. With Jacksonville headed into its bye, O'Shaughnessy could find himself back in a depth role against the Texans in Week 9 if Tyler Eifert (neck) has enough time to get healthy.
Chaisson will make his first NFL start of his career Sunday, assuming the role for the inactive Josh Allen (knee). Chaisson has been decent through the first four games of his career, accumulating seven tackles (four solo) and one sack over that span.
Brown made his NFL debut last week with Josh Lambo (hip) on IR, connecting on one of two field-goal attempts and making one extra point. The Louisville product was let go after Lambo was activated, but he'll still get the opportunity to work for another chance on an active roster should injuries occur in Jacksonville or around the league.
The impending bye week may have factored into the Jaguars' decision to hold Eifert out for Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers after the tight end played just five snaps Week 6 against the Lions before aggravating a neck injury. With some extra time to heal up, Eifert should have a good chance at making it back to action for a Nov. 8 matchup with the Texans in Week 9. Through his six starts on the season, Eifert has reeled in 11 of 23 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown.
Most of his production came on a 36-yard grab in the second quarter that set up the Jaguars' first touchdown, but that was enough to make Shenault the team's leading receiver on the afternoon. The three targets were the rookie's lowest volume of the year, but that can be attributed to a Chargers pass rush that gave Gardner Minshew little time to let routes develop downfield. Jacksonville will be on bye in Week 8, but Shenault could be catching passes from a different quarterback on the other side of the break, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.
Hayden will need to miss at least three weeks before being eligible to return from IR, so the soonest he could suit up again will be in Week 8 against the Chargers following Jacksonville's Week 7 bye. Chris Claybrooks or Sidney Jones are the likeliest candidates to take over Hayden's role as the nickel cornerback.
Ogunbowale is yet to garner an offensive touch in his debut campaign with the Jaguars, after logging 35 receptions and 11 rushes for a total of 303 scrimmage yards last year in Tampa Bay. So far in 2020, James Robinson has dominated the RB workload by fielding 107 of the position's 113 carries. Barring an injury on the depth chart ahead of him, Ogunbowale seems destined for extremely limited offensive usage.
Middleton is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The 28-year-old was released by Jacksonville in early September but stuck around on the practice squad, and he'll now receive a chance on the active roster. Davis spent 2019 with the Cardinals and had four tackles across three games.
Watson played cornerback in 2019, but an injury to Jarrod Wilson (hamstring) will now force him to enter the starting lineup at free safety, where he's only pitched in sporadically. Andrew Wingard (abdomen) is also on IR. Any difficulties to adjust to a starting role on Watson's part could create additional opportunities for Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
Cann sustained the shoulder injury during last week's loss to the Lions, and he'll miss at least one game as a result. Ben Bartch and Tyler Shatley could both see time at right guard in his absence.
Shatley will be back for a seventh season in Jacksonville after first joining the club as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He didn't start a game in 2019 and will likely remain in a reserve role for 2020 so long as the Jaguars offensive line is relatively healthy.
Taylor had been added to the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, but he's already been cleared for action. The 2019 second-round pick is slated to serve as Jacksonville's starting right tackle once again as a sophomore.
Jacksonville also activated Ellefson from practice squad COVID-19 list Thursday, prior to moving him to the 53-man roster. The rookie out of North Dakota State previously appeared in game-action Week 1 versus the Colts, but he's still vying for his first career target.
Starter Tyler Eifert (neck) is unavailable Sunday, so it's notable the rookie still isn't suiting up versus Los Angeles. Davis is without a catch on two targets in four games this season. James O'Shaughnessy will operate as Jacksonville's top tight end in Week 7.
Though the Titans activated Correa from the COVID-19 list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Bills, the linebacker was surprisingly inactive for the 42-16 win. The 26-year-old then submitted a trade request to the front office Wednesday, with Tennessee quickly finding a trade partner within the division. Correa, who logged 8.5 sacks across the previous two seasons, should have an easier path to regular work in Jacksonville with Leon Jacobs (knee) on injured reserve and fellow outside linebackers Myles Jack (ankle) and Dakota Allen (foot) uncertain to play in the Jaguars' Week 6 game against the Lions.
Jack missed two of the last three games due to an ankle injury, but Marrone is optimistic that the Week 8 bye will get enough for Jack to get back to full health. The fifth-year linebacker out of UCLA had a fantastic start to the season before this injury, recording 33 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup through the first three games, and he should be a strong IDP contributor again once he's healthy.
The veteran defensive end will fill the roster spot recently vacated by Lerentee McCray, who will opt out of the 2020 season because of COVID-19 concerns. Gotsis, who is bouncing back from a knee injury, logged 13 tackles in nine games with the Broncos last season.
Walters, who was placed on IR last week due to a foot injury, was expected to compete for punt-return duties for the Jaguars if healthy. The 29-year-old has spent time with the Chargers, Seahawks and Jaguars throughout his career, but he'll look to catch on elsewhere upon his eventual return to full health.
Nurse is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The fifth-year cornerback was fighting for a special teams and depth role with the Jaguars. He had 23 tackles and one interception for the Chiefs in that role in 2017.
Rosas successfully converted four of five field-goal attempts during Jacksonville's Week 4 loss to the Bengals, including a 50-yard try, but he'll need to get healthy before the team considers utilizing him again. In the meantime, the Jaguars have signed Jonathan Brown to the practice squad.
Giles-Harris is one of 11 players cleared to return from the COVID-19 list for Jacksonville on Thursday. He's eligible to immediately resume participating in practice squad activities.
The nature of Hungalu's situation isn't clear, but the linebacker is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.
Henderson wasn't able to face the Texans last week due to a shoulder injury, but he's resumed practicing in full ahead of Sunday's matchup against Detroit. The rookie first-round pick looks set to resume handling his usual starting role at cornerback.
Prior to the game, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Minshew's job security was thinning, and he didn't exactly help his cause with this Week 7 performance. While he tossed multiple touchdowns for the fifth time and avoided throwing a pick for the third occasion in seven games, he matched his season low in passing yards, and his 51.9 completion percentage stands alone as his worst in a single contest on the campaign. The Jaguars have a bye week on tap, so coach Doug Marrone will have time to evaluate Minshew before making a decision on a Week 9 starter under center. Behind Minshew, Mike Glennon and rookie sixth-rounder Jake Luton are the next players up at quarterback in Jacksonville.
The 2019 seventh-round pick appeared in three games with Jacksonville as a rookie, compiling four tackles. An undisclosed issue will now relegate him to IR as a sophomore, unless he manages to reach an injury settlement.
The undrafted rookie has been on the reserve/COVID-19 for three weeks but will now finally get a chance to take the field. He'll be competing for a depth role on the offensive line.
Bryan was previously described as week-to-week, but his absence from Wednesday's injury report suggests the 2018 first-rounder should be good to go for Sunday's season opener against the Colts.
