News: Kettani signed with the Jaguars Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: The 27 year old Kettani played his college ball at Navy, where he graduated back in 2009. He hasn't recorded a catch or carry in stints with the Patriots, Redskins, and Chiefs, so he's going to join the Jaguars as fullback depth behind the likes of Will Ta'ufo'ou and Harvey Unga.
Wed. Aug 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) is expected to play "about 15 plays" in Friday's third preseason game against the Lions.
Impact: Shorts returned to practice Sunday after being sidelined since the first day of training camp due to a hamstring injury. Projected to be the Jaguars' No. 1 pass-catching option this season, Shorts was handed Tuesday's practice off to ensure he's available Friday versus Detroit. Although his snap count will be limited, any game action should help Shorts gear up for the regular season.
Tue. Aug 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bowanko (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: The rookie participated on a limited basis as he continues to work back from an ankle issue.
Tue. Aug 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fleming missed Tuesday's practice with an Achilles injury, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: The injury is not considered serious, but Fleming's status for Friday's preseason game versus Detroit could be in jeopardy.
Tue. Aug 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) was given the day off Tuesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Shorts continues to work back from a hamstring injury and acknowledged over the weekend that he's still rusty. Though Shorts is considered healthy, the team opted to give him an extra day off in advance of Friday's preseason matchup against Detroit.
Tue. Aug 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Posluszny was held out of Tuesday's practice, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Posluszny, who was dealing with a biceps issue, returned to practice Sunday, but the team gave him an extra day of rest Tuesday in advance of Friday's preseason game versus the Lions.
Mon. Aug 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Onobun will require surgery to repair a torn quad, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Onobun, who had recently signed on with the Jags as a depth tight end, is out for year as a result.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Evans, who recorded an interception in Thursday's preseason loss to the Bears, has fully recovered from a foot injury suffered during minicamp, Florida Today reports.
Impact: In competition for a starting spot, a position he held for 11 games last season, Evans made an impact Thursday, picking off a Jimmy Clausen pass that was tipped by Telvin Smith. He returned the pick eight yards and also recorded a solo tackle on the night. Evans will continue to battle Winston Guy for a primary role, as the preseason wears on.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ball is fully recovered from an ankle injury sustained during minicamp, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Ball took part in the Jags' preseason game versus the Bears on Thursday, bringing the Jacksonville secondary to full health. In competition for a starting spot, Ball figures to see consistent playing time as the third cornerback, at worst. Last season, the 29-year-old recorded a career-high 47 combined tackles to go with two picks and career-high 14 passes defended.
Sun. Aug 17, 2014 | STATS
News: Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III has returned to practice and could play in Friday's preseason game at Detroit.
Impact: Shorts was back working with the first-team offense Sunday, a little more than three weeks after straining his right hamstring in the team's opening training camp practice.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring), who returned to practice Sunday, acknowledged that he is "definitely rusty," the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Shorts injured his hamstring back on July 25, so a little rust is not unexpected at this stage. While it remains unclear what sort of plans the Jags have for the 26-year-old wideout over the team's next two preseason games, Shorts believes that he has enough time to get up to speed, in advance of the team's regular season opener. "Absolutely, it's more than enough time," Shorts said Sunday. "It's the perfect amount of time actually. I'm confident about that."
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sanders (suspension) could return for the Jaguars' final preseason game Aug. 28 versus the Falcons, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Sanders has been away from the Jaguars since the beginning of training camp to attend to a personal issue, but is expected back with the team in the near future. Although he'll still be suspended for the first four games of this season due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, a preseason tune-up would still be worthwhile for Sanders.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Posluszny (biceps) will return to practice Sunday, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Posluszny missed Thursday's preseason game in Chicago, as a precaution to ensure a minor biceps ailment wouldn't linger. Now healthy, Posluszny will look to build upon last season's 161 total tackles, which ranked second league-wide.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) will practice Sunday, The Florida-Times Union reports.
Impact: Shorts' right hamstring injury has kept him sidelined since the opening day of training camp. Nonetheless, with a week of practice slated before Friday's preseason game, Shorts is expected to play in some capacity the next time Jacksonville takes the field. Considering Shorts enters the season as Jacksonville's No. 1 wideout, he'll use the remainder of the preseason to build chemistry with quarterbacks Chad Henne and Blake Bortles.
Aug 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Watson (hernia) was removed from the Jaguars' PUP list Sunday and has now begun practicing, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Watson underwent hernia surgery this summer, which caused him to miss the Jaguars' preseason preparations until now. Coming off a career-best 42 tackles last season, Watson will aim to feature in some part of Jacksonville's remaining preseason action to ensure he's ready for Week 1.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jacksonville waived/injured Ewing (wrist) on Saturday, Florida Times-Union writer Ryan O'Halloran reports.
Impact: Ewing can be claimed on waivers, but it sounds like he's dealing with a long-term wrist/hand issue, so the chances of that occurring seem remote. The Jaguars added Harvey Unga at fullback.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | STATS
News: The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fullback Harvey Unga and Booth.
Impact: Booth signed with Chicago as a rookie free agent in May and was waived two weeks ago. He will provide depth in training camp for Jacksonville.
Sat. Aug 16, 2014 | STATS
News: The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Unga and offensive tackle Cody Booth.
Impact: Unga was a seventh-round draft pick by Chicago in the 2010 NFL supplemental draft. The former BYU standout spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve, sat out 2011 and was on Chicago's practice squad for parts of 2012 and 2013. He has not played in a regular-season game.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Pasztor says he broke his hand in Thursday night's preseason loss at Chicago. Pasztor says he fractured the fourth metatarsal in his right hand and has no timetable for his return.
Impact: Cam Bradfield is expected to start in Pasztor's place next week when the Jaguars play at Detroit.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Gus Bradley indicated that Bortles is in line to see some first-team reps at practice and in next Friday's preseason game against the Lions, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: The report suggests that Bortles could play a quarter with the Jags' starters next week, though both the Times-Union and ESPN.com suggest that the Jags have not wavered in their stance that Chad Henne will start at quarterback in Week 1.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Posluszny (biceps contusion) is slated to return to practice on Sunday, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Posluszny sat out Thursday's preseason tilt against the Bears, but the the Jags' prolific tackler appears to be in no danger of missing the start of the season.
Fri. Aug 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) is expected to return practice in a limited capacity on Sunday, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Barring any setbacks, the report suggests that Shorts -- who injured his hamstring on the first day of training camp -- figures to see some reps in next Friday's preseason contest against the Lions. Assuming his health entering the regular season, Shorts is in line to serve as the Jags' top wideout, with rookies Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson also candidates to emerge as key cogs in the team's passing game.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Todman gained 18 yards on eight carries and 24 yards on three receptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: The Jags' depth chart appears to be fairly settled at running back, with Toby Gerhart locked in as the starter, and Todman seemingly in line to serve as the top backup. The only hint of a battle is between Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson for the No. 3 spot, a role Robinson played in Thursday's game. With Gerhart expected to handle third-down and goal-line duties, Todman probably won't see many touches, at least to start the season. He certainly hasn't done himself any favors by playing poorly this preseason, but a recent report indicated that Todman has a solid hold on the No. 2 role.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bortles completed 11-of-17 passes for 160 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: After Bortles outplayed Chad Henne in the first game, both quarterbacks found success against the defensively-challenged Bears. While he's still a long shot to overtake Henne within the first few weeks of the season, Bortles is already starting to build his case for whenever the Jags start to tire of the veteran. The team reportedly wants to keep Bortles on the bench for most of his rookie season, but there's no real reason to expect significant improvement for Henne.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Starting for the second week in a row, Hurns caught four passes for 74 yards on six targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: Hurns, an undrafted free agent, is making a strong case to earn a role in the offense, as his excellent preseason has reportedly been backed by similar showings in practice. However, it's unclear exactly where he'll fit in, as his preseason has been made possible by Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Robinson (hamstring) sitting out. With the aforementioned duo and Marqise Lee expected to be active in the offense, Jacksonville has quite a few options at wide receiver for a team that doesn't figure to have much luck throwing the ball. If nothing else, Hurns has put himself in excellent position to earn a roster spot, something very few undrafted players can say at this point in the preseason.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) gained 19 yards on six carries and eight yards on one reception in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: According to Nathan Jahnke of Pro Football Focus, Gerhart played the first 12 snaps of the game, and was then replaced by Jordan Todman, who handled the following 17 plays. Things seems to be shaping up as expected, with Gerhart likely to serve as the top back in early-down, goal-line and third-down situations. Todman and Denard Robinson/Storm Johnson figure to poach some touches, but Gerhart should be busy this season, if he can hold up to the workload. His career-high mark of 132 touches (109 carries, 23 receptions) occurred back in 2011, when Adrian Peterson missed four games for the Vikings. As for the hip that bothered him the last few weeks, Gerhart showed no signs of injury Thursday night.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Henne completed 12-of-17 passes for 130 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: Following a lousy preseason opener, Henne was rather efficient against the shaky Chicago defense. The Jags have indicated that they want Blake Bortles to sit on the bench for most -- if not all -- of the season. However, the rookie is looking good through two preseason games, while Henne lacks any sort of upside. Bortles is a long shot to start early in the year, but Henne still shouldn't be drafted with the expectation that he'll play 16 games, or even close to it.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lewis caught all three of his targets for 46 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: Though he finished last year with a bang, Lewis has largely been disappointing since a 700-yard, 10-touchdown campaign in 2010. He drew a modest 47 targets in 11 games last season, and it's hard to envision a major leap in his involvement after the Jags drafted wide receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson (hamstring) in the second round of May's draft. Having said that, Lewis is both healthy and without competition for the starting job, so he could surprise early in the season.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee caught four passes for 27 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.
Impact: According to the Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars' coaching staff was displeased with Lee's performance in last Friday's preseason opener. There won't be much to complain about this time around, as Lee caught each of his four targets, and the offense played surprisingly well. While the rookie out of USC played a starring role in the offense Thursday, he'll have more competition for targets once Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and fellow second-round rookie Allen Robinson (hamstring) are healthy. It's also looking like undrafted rookie Allen Hurns may work his way into some kind of role.
Thu. Aug 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Robinson, who remains out with a hamstring injury that he sustained on July 31, indicates that he is progressing, the Florida Times-Union reports. "Getting better each and every day so it's coming along," Robinson said earlier this week.
Impact: He'll miss Thursday's preseason game against the Bears, and it remains unclear if he'll be able to suit up for the Jags' Aug. 22 tilt against the Lions. The report is skeptical with regard to that prospect, however.
Wed. Aug 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny won't play at Chicago on Thursday night because of a bruised biceps.
Impact: The team says Posluszny will remain in Jacksonville for treatment and could be back at practice soon.
Wed. Aug 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Posluszny won't travel with the Jaguars for their preseason game in Chicago on Thursday due to a minor biceps contusion, the team's official website reports.
Impact: Posluszny's biceps ailment is considered to be very minor, so Jacksonville is merely playing it safe with him during the preseason. After ranking second in the NFL with 161 total tackles last season, Posluszny is expected to be an IDP gem once again this year, should he remain healthy.
Tue. Aug 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) is expected to play Thursday against the Bears, Jaguars.com reports.
Impact: Gerhart missed time recently with a hip flexor injury, but said he plans to make his preseason debut Thursday. Coach Gus Bradley echoed the same message, but indicated Gerhart's workload would be very light. "We're going to get him some reps," Bradley said. "It may be like four or five carries or something like that to get him going." Since Gerhart only returned to practice Tuesday, it makes sense that the Jaguars will start him off with only a few carries. His workload figures to increase as the preseason progresses, however, as he prepares for a role as the Jags' featured back.
Tue. Aug 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Gerhart has returned to practice after missing nearly two weeks with a hip flexor injury.
Impact: Gerhart last practiced July 31. He missed a scrimmage and the team's preseason opener against Tampa Bay on Friday. Jordan Todman, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson split repetitions with the first-team offense during his absence.
Tue. Aug 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) returned to practice Tuesday, NFL.com reports.
Impact: Gerhart missed more than a week while nursing a hip flexor injury. Considering that sideline spell, which included Jacksonville's preseason opener, Gerhart needed to return soon to be available for Friday's second exhibition outing. Barring a setback, the first-year Jaguar figures to play Friday, although his workload should be significantly lighter than what Gerhart expects to carry during the regular season.
Mon. Aug 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip flexor) could return to practice Tuesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Gerhart, who missed the Jags' first preseason game this past Friday, hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game against Chicago, but we suspect that his chances of seeing work in the contest hinge on a Tuesday return to the practice field.
Mon. Aug 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) isn't practicing Monday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Gerhart's hip flexor has kept him sidelined for the past week, including Friday's opening preseason game. Given that he's expected to be the Jaguars' workhorse running back this season, it's understandable that the team is allowing their new signing maximum rest to ensure that he's fully healthy once he returns. Gerhart previously expressed hopes of playing this Thursday against the Bears, a situation that would probably require him to practice beforehand.
Sun. Aug 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Jordan is on IR.
Impact: He had no fantasy value.
Aug 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Robinson (hamstring) won't suit up for Thursday's preseason contest against the Bears, according to the Jaguars' official site.
Impact: While the report suggests that Robinson's issue is not considered a long-term injury, it's unclear whether or not he has a shot to play in the team's third preseason game, on Aug. 22 against the Lions.
Aug 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) won't be ready for Thursday's preseason contest against the Bears, according to the Jaguars' official site.
Impact: On the plus side, the report suggests that Shorts' issue is not viewed as a long-term concern and that he could be back in time for the Jags' third preseason game, against Detroit on Aug. 22.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) is "definitely ahead of schedule" in his rehab but is still without a firm return timetable, the Florida Times-Union reports. "I ran 100 percent a couple times last week straight-line and actually ran 8-10 routes, too, and felt good," Shorts said. "I'm going to do it again Sunday and we'll go from there. We just want to be careful and not aggravate it."
Impact: Shorts, who has been out since July 25 with a right hamstring injury, is unlikely to play in the Jags' second preseason game versus the Bears on Thursday. However, he's targeting a return for the team's matchup with Detroit on August 22. Barring a setback, Shorts will have at least a preseason game or two to work himself into game shape before the regular season begins September 7.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: With Toby Gerhart (hip) held out of Friday's preseason opener, Johnson worked as the second-team running back, gaining 21 yards on nine carries.
Impact: Johnson is listed fourth on the initial depth chart, yet he worked ahead of Denard Robinson in Friday's exhibition. Though Robinson turned in the better stat line with 36 yards and a score on seven carries, Johnson may be a threat to leapfrog the former QB on the depth chart. Toby Gerhart (hip) is seemingly locked in as the starter, and recent reports suggest that the same is true for Jordan Todman in the backup role. That's hardly an intimidating 1-2 combo, leaving Johnson and Robinson as interesting sleeper options for deeper leagues.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Working behind Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson, Robinson rushed for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven carries in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs.
Impact: Robinson is listed third on the depth chart, but he didn't touch the ball until the second half, even though starter Toby Gerhart (hip) was out. Seventh-round rookie Storm Johnson worked as Jordan Todman's backup, and it may be that Robinson is trying to fend off Johnson for the No. 3 role, rather than challenging Todman for backup duties. That would fit with recent reports suggesting that Todman is essentially locked in as the top backup.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Despite drawing the start in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs, Lee did not see any targets.
Impact: Cecil Shorts and Allen Robinson were both sidelined by hamstring injuries, leaving Lee and UDFA Allen Hurns to work as the starters, with Mike Brown serving as the third receiver. Lee may very well have started even if everyone were healthy, as he's expected to take on a major part in the offense as a rookie. Hurns seems to be making an impression, but the No. 2 receiver role will likely come down to Robinson and Lee, both of whom were selected in the second round of May's draft. The Jags may opt to work in both rookie second-rounders in two-wide sets, and there's some chance that Shorts' injury will linger into the regular season.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hurns drew the start in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs, and he finished his night with two receptions for 43 yards on three targets.
Impact: Though he got the start, Hurns caught both of his passes from Blake Bortles while working with the second-team offense. The undrafted free agent has clearly made an impression on the Jags' coaching staff, yet he'll likely slide back down the depth chart once Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Robinson (hamstring) are healthy. On the other hand, a recent report from NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah suggests that Hurns will have a role in the offense this season. While he probably won't be any higher than fourth on the depth chart if the rest of the Jacksonville receivers are healthy, Hurns has clearly put himself in excellent position to make the team.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: With Toby Gerhart (hip) held out due to a hip injury, Todman started Friday's preseason opener against Tampa Bay.
Impact: Todman only played one quarter, finishing his night with five yards on five carries and six yards on one reception. While the performance wasn't impressive, there was really nothing to like about the Jags' first-team offense. Denard Robinson managed 36 yards and a touchdown on seven carries, but the former QB didn't touch the ball until the second half, as seventh-round rookie Storm Johnson worked as Todman's backup. Gerhart (hip) is merely day-to-day and seemingly locked in as the starter, while Todman appears to have a firm grip on the No. 2 role. It may be that the only competition left is between Johnson and Robinson for the third-string spot.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) hopes to earn some snaps in Thursday's preseason game in Chicago, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Since sustaining a hip flexor injury last weekend, Gerhart has been held out of all team activities, including Friday's win versus the Buccaneers. His optimism is an encouraging sign, but the Jaguars will ultimately have the final call on his next dose of contact.
Sat. Aug 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bortles completed 7-of-11 passes for 117 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs.
Impact: Bortles outplayed Chad Henne, which wasn't all that hard to do in a game that saw both first-team offenses struggle mightily. The Jags apparently plan on starting Henne for most, if not all, of the season. That tune could perhaps change down the road, should the Jaguars look as bad on offense as they did last season.
Fri. Aug 8, 2014 | STATS
News: Bortles was solid in his preseason debut, throwing for 117 yards and leading a second-half drive for a field goal to help the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-10 on Friday night.
Impact: The third overall pick in this year's draft completed 7 of 11 passes, including a 31-yarder down the middle of the field to Mike Brown to set up a 26-yard field goal that gave the Jaguars a 10-3 lead late in the third quarter.
Fri. Aug 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brown (hamstring) caught two passes for 37 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs.
Impact: With Cecil Shorts (hamstring), Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Ace Sanders (personal) sidelined, the Jags used Brown, Marqise Lee and UDFA Allen Hurns as the top three receivers. Following the selection of both Robinson and Lee in the second round of May's draft, the Jags are hoping to marginalize Brown. He should make the final roster, but will likely need injuries in front of him in order to take on a major role.
Fri. Aug 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Henne completed four-of-seven passes for 30 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Bucs.
Impact: Henne had a quiet quarter of drives, though the Jags did get into field-goal range twice, only to watch botched shotgun snaps end both drives. According to WFTV's Joe Kepner, Henne bore at least some of the responsibility for the pair of failed snaps. The Jags were without Cecil Shorts (hamstring), Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Ace Sanders (personal), leaving Henne with little to work with besides second-round rookie Marqise Lee and middling 25-year-old Mike Brown. Though the Jags started to move the ball better once Blake Bortles entered the game, Henne is widely expected to open the regulars season as the starter, even if he's outplayed this preseason. Of course, that could change if the first-team offense continues to looks this bad.
Fri. Aug 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Shorts (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Bucs, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: When Shorts suffered a strained hamstring back on July 25, the initial estimate was that the wideout would miss at least two weeks. While it's still unclear when he'll be back, receivers coach Jerry Sullivan suggested that he is hopeful that Shorts will get some work in before Week 1. With Shorts, as well as the likes of Allen Robinson and Mike Brown also banged up, Marqise Lee and undrafted rookie Allen Hurns could draw starting wideout assignments for the Jags on Friday.
Fri. Aug 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Onobun was signed by the Jaguars on Thursday, the Team's Official Website reports.
Impact: The journeyman tight end will begin his second stint with Jacksonville as a depth tight end. He was recently released by the Bears.
Thu. Aug 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bortles will work exclusively with the second team offense during Friday's preseason opener versus the Buccaneers, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: While Bortles likely won't work much with any starters, he's in position to see plenty of reps as the backup quarterback. Chad Henne will "probably" play the first quarter, per coach Gus Bradley, and Bortles will likely play all of the second quarter and could start the third. "We'd like to get him some extended reps," Bradley said. Iowa product Ricky Stanzi will serve as Jacksonville's third quarterback Friday.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Slaughter was waived Wednesday after spraining his left foot Tuesday.
Impact: Jacksonville already was without receivers Cecil Shorts III (hamstring), Allen Robinson (hamstring), Tandon Doss (ankle) and Ace Sanders (leave of absence). Damian Copeland (wrist) was placed on injured reserve last week.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Brown left training camp Wednesday with tightness in his right hamstring.
Impact: Jacksonville already was without receivers Cecil Shorts III (hamstring), Allen Robinson (hamstring), Tandon Doss (ankle) and Ace Sanders (leave of absence). Damian Copeland (wrist) was placed on injured reserve last week.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | STATS
News: The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed receivers Ramses Barden and Hall following injuries to Mike Brown and Nathan Slaughter.
Impact: The 5-foot-8 Hall totaled 16 receptions for 155 yards and two touchdowns in three seasons with Philadelphia and Kansas City.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | STATS
News: The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Barden and Chad Hall following injuries to Mike Brown and Nathan Slaughter.
Impact: The 6-foot-6 Barden, a third-round draft pick by the New York Giants in 2009, caught 29 passes for 394 yards in four seasons.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Gerhart will miss the team's preseason opener against Tampa Bay. Gerhart has missed the last five days of practice because of a hip flexor injury. Without him, journeyman Jordan Todman has been getting repetitions with the first-team offense.
Impact: The Jaguars gave Gerhart a three-year contract worth $10.5 million in March to replace Maurice Jones-Drew. Gerhart spent the last four years backing up All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson in Minnesota, totaling 1,305 yards rushing and five touchdowns.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hall will sign with the Jaguars, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Both Hall and Ramses Barden were signed by the Jags on Wednesday, with a handful of injuries currently leaving the team's wideout depth depleted.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brown was unable to finish Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Brown is currently jockeying for position at wide receiver on Jacksonville's depth chart, so he'll hope his hamstring ailment won't prevent him from playing in Friday's preseason opener versus the Buccaneers. However, at the moment, it's unclear whether Brown will be able to recover quick enough to suit up.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barden will sign with the Jaguars, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: With Justin Blackmon and Ace Sanders unavailable to the team and Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson, Tandon Doss and Mike Brown all banged up, the Jags have added both Barden and Chad Hall to bolster their depth at wideout.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gerhart (hip) will not play in Friday's preseason opener against the Buccaneers, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Gerhart has been sidelined with a hip flexor injury recently, so playing in Friday's preseason contest wouldn't be conducive to his health. With the Jaguars expected to lean heavily on Gerhart this season, the team will exercise every precaution with him during the preseason. At the moment, it's unclear when Gerhart can be expected back on the field, but his hip ailment is not considered serious.
Wed. Aug 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cyprien (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, Jaguars.com reports.
Impact: Cyprien was handed a maintenance day Tuesday to rest a hip flexor injury and is already back in action for Jacksonville on Wednesday. Coming off a promising rookie campaign, Cyprien could be poised to take the next step in his development this year, making him an IDP player worthwhile to monitor.
Mon. Aug 4, 2014 | STATS
