The Jaguars released their first week three injury report on Wednesday. Here it is:
QB Blake Bortles, Right Wrist, Full Participant
CB Jalen Ramsey, Ankle, Limited
FS Tashaun Gipson, Ankle, Did Not Participate
LB Lerentee McCray, Knee, Did Not Participate
C Brandon Linder, Knee, Did Not Participate
WR Allen Hurns, Shoulder, Full Participant
DT Malik Jackson, Groin, Limited
WR Jaelen Strong, Hamstring, Limited
This list certainly includes some names that you never want to see on the injury report. While there are seven players listed, only Brandon Linder, Tashaun Gipson and Lerentee McCray were held out of practice Wednesday. Linder is the team's best offensive lineman and would be a key loss if this knee injury, that's been bothering him for a couple of weeks now, turns into anything serious. He has a history of missing extended time with injuries, so while it's not a huge issue at this point, the Linder injury is still something to keep an eye on. Tashaun Gipson is a key cog in the Jaguars secondary and will be sorely missed if he can't play. Jalen Ramsey was a game time decision against the Titans last week, so him still being listed isn't a huge surprise, but again he'll be expected to play against the Ravens in week 3. Blake Bortles has been on the injury list for some time with the right wrist injury, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will hold him out of practice (or games). The health of Allen Hurns is paramount moving forward. Following injuries to Dede Westbrook and Allen Robinson the Jaguars WR depth has come into question. Hurns appears to be fine, but like Brandon Linder, he has a history of missing time due to injury. Malik Jackson has a groin injury, but he too was active in a limited role on Wednesday and should be fine when the Jaguars take on the Ravens.
On the Ravens injury front there's quite a bit going on. Most notably, the Ravens announced on Tuesday that All Pro offensive guard Marshall Yanda was being placed on injured reserve. On the other side of the ball, the Ravens could be without their best young defensive lineman. Brandon Williams could miss week three with a hampered foot.
