In case you forgot — in the midst of the most talked-about controversy in team history — the Jaguars still have a nationally televised game to play against the Titans this Thursday. Jalen Ramsey is dominating the headlines, but if the Jaguars can pick up their first win of the season later this week, the vibe surrounding this team will change in a big way.
The good news for the Jaguars? All of their starters — including Jalen Ramsey — participated in practice on Tuesday.
Yannick Ngakoue missed the week two loss to the Texans with a hamstring injury and appeared on the injury report today. But he was a full participant in practice and should be expected to play on Thursday. His presence is crucial for the Jaguars' defense.
Cam Robinson also practiced fully after being held out last week on a coach's decision. If he can return to the field on Thursday night, it could help sure up the Jaguars' offensive line against a talented Tennessee defense.
Another key cog on the defensive side of the ball, AJ Bouye practiced on Tuesday, albeit in a limited role. Bouye also missed week two. He's dealing with a minor hip ailment but is trending in the right direction.
Ronnie Harrison is dealing with an ankle injury but also practiced fully, as did DJ Chark, Marqise Lee, and swing tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.
The Jaguars have a massive issue to deal with inside their locker room, but a divisional win may quiet the noise and ease the tension for the time being. Each of the Jaguars' divisional rivals has problems of their own. Houston, Tennessee, and Indianapolis all sit at 1-1 after two weeks of play. With a win this week, the Jaguars could potentially find themselves in a four-way tie for the division lead. The Colts host the Falcons in week two, while the Texans travel to LA to take on the Chargers. Neither of those games are gimmes.
