The Jacksonville Jaguars have dealt with many injuries over the last several seasons, including to several to key contributors this offseason.
The name of the game throughout the offseason and preseason is staying healthy. Many teams including the Patriots, Bears, and Chiefs lost major pieces due to injury over the weekend. Fortunately for the Jaguars they've been able to avoid major injuries, for the most part, in 2017.
Each starter in the Jacksonville Jaguars defensive backfield has missed time throughout the offseason program and training camp, but now they're all good to go. Jalen Ramsey is back after a core muscle injury. Aaron Colvin is back after sustaining a season ending injury in 2016. Safeties Barry Curch and Tashaun Gipson both missed time with minor tweaks, but they're good to go as well. AJ Bouye has missed some time throughout camp and was held for the last week or so with an undisclosed injury, but he too returned to practice on Saturday for the Jaguars.
At linebacker each of the Jaguars starters has stayed healthy throughout this offseason for the Jaguars.
Along the defensive line Calais Campbell and Dante Fowler have both missed time. Calais Campbell has been back for the last couple of weeks while Dante Fowler returned to the practice field on Sunday.
On offense the Jaguars are almost entirely healthy. They got a boatload of contributors back on Saturday. WRs Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, and Rashad Greene all returned to practice. RB Leonard Fournette returned to practice while TJ Yeldon worked off to the side during practice. Offensive linemen Brandon Linder and Earl Watford both returned to practice as well.
With no other major injury concerns the Jaguars look to be as healthy as they could be entering the regular season. The only major contributors from the past that is still sidelined for the Jaguars is long snapper Carson Tinker, who is out for the season with a torn ACL.
The Jaguars have plenty of issues heading into the 2017 regular season. The QB situation is unsettling while the offensive line appears to be a few pieces away from being a competent unit. Fortunately for the team, they'll start the season with what appears to be a full deck of cards.
