Jacksonville Jaguars Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Head coach Doug Marrone believes Pryor (ankle) will be activated from injured reserve Saturday or Sunday, Mike Kaye of WTLV reports.
Impact: The Jaguars have until Wednesday, Nov. 22 to activate Pryor, or else he will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. Jacksonville has earned the title of the top-ranked defense through 10 weeks, so it's unclear how the Jags would deal with Pryor's return. The team is taking its time, and their next game is against the Browns on Sunday.
News: Lewis (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Browns.
Impact: Lewis was listed as a limited participant in each of the Jaguars' practices this week, but the fact that he isn't listed as questionable heading into the weekend suggests his workload may have been restricted for maintenance purposes rather than out of legitimate concern about the knee injury. The 33-year-old tight end is set to make his 150th career start Sunday, tying him for the second-most caps in franchise history. With cold conditions projected to hit Cleveland on Sunday, the Jaguars may neglect the passing game more than usual, thereby limiting the veteran's already modest upside.
News: Lee (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's road game against the Browns after logging limited practice sessions both Thursday and Friday.
Impact: Allen Hurns has been ruled out for the contest, so Lee is slated to head the Jaguars' Week 11 wideout corps, with Keelan Cole and quite possibly Dede Westbrook (assuming he is activated from IR) also in the mix. Given that less-than-ideal weather is likely on tap in Cleveland this weekend, the Jaguars may be inclined to lean on the run more Sunday, even with top back Leonard Fournette banged up. That said, of the team's receivers, Lee remains the safest play, considering his target volume. On that front, he hit double figures in three of his last four outings and has combined for 23 targets over his last two games.
News: Cole is likely to start Sunday's game against the Browns with Allen Hurns (knee) ruled out for the contest, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Impact: Cole had already cemented himself as the Jaguars' No. 3 wideout and top vertical threat over the team's last three games, hauling in eight of 16 targets for 172 yards during that span. While it's expected that top receiver Marqise Lee will continue to command most of the looks among Jaguars pass catchers, Cole should benefit from an uptick in targets as he takes on a heightened role with both Hurns and depth wideout Arrelious Benn (knee) sidelined. It's worth noting, however, that rookie fourth-round pick Dede Westbrook (abdomen) is expected to be activated from injured reserve and suit up Sunday, though the Jaguars could look to ease the preseason standout back in for his NFL regular-season debut. Westbrook may eventually leapfrog Cole on the depth chart as he gets acclimated to the offense, but Cole is the favorite to earn the larger snap count of the two in Week 11.
News: Brown (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Aside from a limited practice Thursday, Brown was otherwise on the sideline during the Jaguars' Week 11 preparations, putting his status for Sunday's contest on shaky ground. The rookie fifth-round pick is a backup linebacker for the Jaguars and won't be in store for much more than special-teams work if he suits up.
News: Omameh is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a quadriceps injury, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Omameh didn't practice at all this week, so he may actually be closer to doubtful for the Week 11 contest, in spite of his questionable designation. Josh Walker is listed as the top backup at left guard on the Jaguars' depth chart, so he would presumably be first in line to start if Omameh can't play Sunday.
News: Parnell is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a knee injury, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Parnell failed to practice in any capacity from Wednesday through Friday, seemingly making it unlikely that he'll be able to play Sunday, despite the questionable designation. William Poehls would likely pick up the start at right tackle if Parnell can't give it a go.
News: Benn (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns after failing to practice Friday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida TImes-Union reports.
Impact: Benn held out hope that he would be able to suit up Sunday after injuring his knee in the Week 10 win over the Chargers, but on the heels of missed practices Thursday and Friday, the Jaguars determined the wideout wouldn't be available. Though he's played only a combined 20 offensive snaps over the Jaguars' last four games, Benn's absence will loom larger than normal with fellow wideout Allen Hurns (knee) also ruled out against the Browns. Fortunately for Jacksonville, rookie Dede Westbrook (abdomen) is expected to be activated from injured reserve in time to suit up Sunday, offsetting the losses of Hurns and Benn to some extent.
News: Fournette (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns after not practicing Friday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Back-to-back limited practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday supported the notion that Fournette would play through his ankle issue this week, but the running back's absence Friday suggests that he's not necessarily a lock to play Sunday. If Fournette does ultimately suit up, it's plausible that he could be limited with his ankle "still not right," a source informed FloridaFootballInsiders.com. Fournette first tweaked his right ankle Oct. 15 against the Rams and was ultimately forced to miss one game due to the injury before aggravating the ankle Week 10 against the Chargers, during which he finished with 33 yards on 17 carries. In the event Fournette is either sidelined or subjected to a restricted workload Sunday in a game that's expected to feature snow and cold weather, backups Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon could both take on heightened roles in the backfield. Confirmation of Fournette's status will arrive in advance of the first wave of NFL action this Sunday, with the game kicking off at 1 p.m. EDT.
News: Hurns (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.
Impact: With Hurns out this week, look for Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook (assuming he's activated from IR) to see added opportunities in the Jaguars offense Sunday, while Marqise Lee maintains his status as the team's top wideout. Following a week in which he did not practice at all, Hurns' Week 12 status is cloudy at this time.
News: Fournette (ankle) didn't suit up for Friday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Fournette was limited at the Jaguars' first two practices of the week while battling ongoing soreness from the ankle injury he first suffered Oct. 15 against the Rams, but it didn't seem to provide much cause for concern. However, his absence Friday firmly puts his availability for the Week 11 matchup with the Browns into question. Expect the Jaguars to provide more details regarding Fournette's status after Friday's practice comes to a close.
News: Hurns (ankle) did not practice Thursday.
Impact: Back-to-back missed practices foreshadow Hurns' expected absence for Sunday's game against the Browns. Assuming he's ruled out, fellow wideouts Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook (a candidate to be activated from IR) would be in line to help fill in for Hurns this weekend.
News: Lewis (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Impact: The Jaguars have monitored Lewis' practice reps through the first two days of the week, but there has been no indication from the team that the knee issue will put the tight end's status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the Browns. Since his three-touchdown outburst in Week 3, Lewis has managed only eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown in his subsequent six appearances, rendering him a lower-tier fantasy option at the position.
News: Lee (knee) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.
Impact: As was the case ahead of the Week 10 matchup with the Chargers, Lee has kicked off his preparations for Sunday's game in Cleveland with a limited practice Thursday after failing to practice Wednesday. If the pattern holds for Friday, Lee will again be limited, but it shouldn't put his status in any jeopardy for the weekend. Instead, the weekend weather forecast for Cleveland could prove more problematic for Lee than the knee issue, as the snow, wind and cold temperatures expected to hit Ohio may prompt the Jaguars to lean on a ground-based offensive attack.
News: Fournette (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.
Impact: Though Fournette has been limited during the Jaguars' first two practices of the week, it doesn't appear that he's worried about the injury to his right ankle, which he tweaked in the fourth quarter of the Week 10 win over the Chargers, keeping him out Sunday against the Browns. Instead, Fournette indicated Thursday that the forecast of snow, wind and cold weather in Cleveland this weekend was of greater concern to him, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. Fournette grew up in New Orleans and played just one game during his LSU career in frigid weather: a 17-0 loss to Arkansas in 2014, during which he finished with nine yards on five carries. The favorable matchup with the winless Browns should be enough for fantasy owners to justify starting Fournette in all season-long formats, though the weather may provide a reason to avoid paying up for him in DFS contests.
News: Benn (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.
Impact: Benn expressed optimism earlier this week that the knee injury he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers wouldn't force him to miss further action, but his status for the Week 11 matchup with the Browns looks to be on murky ground following the missed practice session. The Jaguars will reevaluate Benn on Friday before offering more clarity on his outlook heading into the weekend, but it's possible the team could have a depleted receiving corps in the contest, as Allen Hurns (ankle) appears unlikely to play. On a more fortunate note, Dede Westbrook (abdomen) looks poised to return from injured reserve this week, which would at least give the team another body at receiver.
News: Hurns (ankle) isn't expected to practice Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Impact: Hurns still required the assistance of a walking boot and crutches while he was on the sideline during Wednesday's practice, so it's not surprising that he won't be ready to return to the field a day later. Unless the wideout displays dramatic progress in his recovery from the right ankle sprain before the Jaguars' final practice of the week Friday, don't count on him suiting up Week 11 against the Browns.
