The Jaguars lost two more contributors - for what appears to be an extended amount of time - during their loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.
Return specialist (if you can call him that) Jaydon Mickens fractured his ankle and will likely be our for four to six weeks. After an often exciting debut season with the Jaguars Mickens hasn't offered much in terms of explosiveness in 2018 and has made several puzzling decisions on the field. This injury will give other players like Dede Westbrook and perhaps DJ Chark a chance to show if they can provide more of a spark for the Jaguars on special teams. During Sunday's loss Westbrook returned a punt for six yards following Mickens' departure from the game.
UPDATE: Jaydon Mickens was placed on IR and Rashad Greene was re-signed Monday afternoon and will likely get a shot at the punt return job.
The tight end position continues to thin. The Jaguars lost starting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins to the IR thanks to a core muscle injury that finally gave out against the Chiefs. He'll be eligible to return later this season. His replacement in the starting lineup, Niles Paul, was struck by an unfortunate and untimely injury just a week later in Dallas. Paul suffered what is believed to be a sprained MCL and underwent an MRI on Monday that will reveal how long he will remain sidelined. The Jaguars currently have James O'Shagnnessy and David Grinnage on their active roster at the tight end position. They may look elsewhere to add a third tight end to the roster.
