Jags TE Thomas out; RB Yeldon questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on November 25, 2016 – 3:00 pm

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be down a couple of offensive weapons on Sunday against the Bills.

TE Julius Thomas is out with a back injury. He didn’t practice all week. Also unable to practice all week was RB T.J. Yeldon. He’s listed as questionable, but is seen as a long shot to play. That means Chris Ivory will likely get the start at running back. Meanwhile at tight end, first-year player Ben Koyack will start with Thomas out and Marcedes Lewis on injured reserve.

Player Pos Injury Participation Friday Game Status
Arrelious Benn WR Concussion FULL QUESTIONABLE
Aaron Colvin CB Concussion FULL QUESTIONABLE
Abry Jones DT Ankle DNP QUESTIONABLE
T.J. Yeldon DE Ankle DNP QUESTIONABLE
Jared Odrick OLB Shoulder DNP OUT

Jags’ Odrick, Thomas, Yeldon unable to practice

Posted by Chris Brown on November 23, 2016 – 4:51 pm

Jacksonville was without a few starters on the practice field Wednesday.

DE Jared Odrick, TE Julius Thomas and RB T.J. Yeldon were all non-participants in practice Wednesday. Yeldon has been dealing with an ankle injury, which has given fellow RB Chris Ivory more playing time of late.

Jags top back may sit Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on October 23, 2015 – 6:41 pm

The Jaguars have a fairly long list of players on their injury report this week. While it’s not quite to the degree of Buffalo’s walking wounded, they could be without their starting RB T.J. Yeldon on Sunday.

Yeldon was only able to practice on a limited basis Friday due to his groin injury. He’s listed as questionable. Jacksonville’s run game has had enough trouble putting forth consistent production. If Yeldon can’t play again this week after missing last week’s game against Houston, it makes the Jaguars task of running the football against Buffalo’s top five run defense all the more difficult.

Player Pos Injury Game Status
DE Chris Clemons DE Not Injury Related PROBABLE

WR Allen Hurns WR Ankle/Thigh PROBABLE
DT Sen’Derrick Marks DT Knee PROBABLE
OT Jermey Parnell T Knee PROBABLE

TE Julius Thomas TE Chest/Hand PROBABLE

Jags WR corps almost as nicked up as Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on October 21, 2015 – 4:49 pm

The Bills could be without three of their seven receivers Sunday against Jacksonville. The Jaguars might be in a similar boat with a few of their top wideouts unable to participate in practice Wednesday.

Top wideout Allen Robinson practiced on a limited basis with a lower leg injury, but No. 2 WR Allen Hurns did not practice due to thigh and ankle injuries, while Marqise Lee is dealing with a hamstring injury that has plagued him for several weeks.

Top RB T.J. Yeldon also did not practice due to a groin injury. He missed Jacksonville’s game last week. Starting S Jonathan Cyprien also missed practice due to a calf injury.

Jones-Drew doubtful, Shorts questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on December 13, 2013 – 1:17 pm

The Jaguars could be without 40 percent of their offense Sunday. Maurice Jones-Drew is doubtful and top receiver Cecil Shorts is questionable for Sunday’s game with the Bills.

Jones-Drew did not practice at all this week. He was to test his ailing hamstring Friday, but didn’t practice for a third straight day. Shorts practiced for the first time this week on Friday, but was limited in practice. The two players have also accounted for 40 percent of the Jaguars’ touchdowns.

Jags missing starters at practice

Posted by Chris Brown on December 12, 2013 – 2:32 pm

Nine starters for the Jaguars did not practice or were limited on Thursday. Knowing Jacksonville hasn’t played a game in a week raises some concerns that they might be without some key pieces Sunday against the Bills.

For the second straight day top WR Cecil Shorts did not practice due to a groin injury. RB Maurice Jones-Drew hasn’t practiced, though he’s expected to test his ailing hamstring Friday.

On defense four starters didn’t practice Thursday including rookie safety Johnathan Cyprien with a thigh injury and OLB Geno Hayes with knee injury. Cyprien and Hayes rank second and third on the team in tackles. Two starting offensive linemen were also limited with shoulder injuries. Here’s the full report.

The Jaguars will be without a starting linebacker on Sunday and they may not have their starting free safety or #2 running back.

jaguarsinsider    Injury report Justin Durant has been declared out. Sean Considine and Rashad Jennings are doubtful.

Considine is the Jags starting free safety and Jennings is Maurice Jones-Drew’s backup. Starting LG Justin Smiley was also limited in practice Friday for Jacksonville as he has been all week, but he’s listed as probable.

Jags could be down a LB

Posted by Chris Brown on October 8, 2010 – 8:39 am

The Jaguars could be missing one of their starting LBs for Sunday’s game.

OLB Justin Durant (ankle) did not practice on Thursday after participating on limited basis on Wednesday. What he can or cannot do in practice today (Friday) will go a long way in determining his status for this weekend’s game at Ralph Wilson Stadium. If he can’t go Eric Alexander is expected to step in for him.

Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle) who did not practice Wednesday practiced fully Thursday and is expected to play.

His backup RB Rashad Jennings (shoulder) however has been limited in practice all week and is likely to be questionable for the game Sunday.

Starting FS Sean Considine (hamstring) has also been limited in practice all week and figures to be questionable for Sunday’s game too. The same goes for starting LG Justin Smiley (ankle) who has been limited in practice all week.

Jones-Drew doesn’t practice

Posted by Chris Brown on October 6, 2010 – 3:58 pm

The Jaguars injury report is not lengthy, but they could be a bit shorthanded at running back.

Starting RB Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, but it appears to be just a way of giving their feature back an extra day of rest.

“He was very physical in the effort that he provided us on Sunday,” said Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio. “He’s a little banged up right now, and we rested him (Wednesday). But he’s a proud young man and he brings it for us and plays with great energy and great emotion on Sundays. He’s one of the guys that we count on.”

What makes the depth at running back a little dicey for Jacksonville is backup RB Rashad Jennings is dealing with a shoulder injury that had him limited in practice Wednesday. If Jennings can’t go it would leave Jacksonville with rookie Deji Karim behind Jones-Drew, who is still expected to play. FB Greg Jones could also get some carries in such a scenario.

Also limited in practice Wednesday for Jacksonville was starting FS Sean Considine (hamstring), starting OLB Justin Durant (ankle) and starting LG Justin Smiley (ankle).
