The Jaguars escaped week 10 with a walk off overtime win over the Chargers. In week 11 their competition isn't so stiff, but injuries will play a factor as the Jaguars travel to Cleveland.
Wide receiver Allen Hurns had an MRI on his injured ankle Wednesday that came back negative, so Hurns will likely be able to return before the end of the regular season. It does, however, appear that Hurns will miss this week. With Hurns likely out the Jaguars appear ready to activate rookie WR Dede Westbrook. He's been practicing for several weeks now and could make an immediate impact for the Jaguars. Westbrook will be the team's third option at WR behind Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole.
Speaking of Marqise Lee, he was also a non participant in Wednesday's practice. He hasn't been practicing much at all lately dealing with a myriad of injuries, but count on Lee to be ready come game day as he has been all year.
Starting RT Jermey Parnell, who missed the Jaguars last contest, also didn't participate in practice Wednesday. He'll be questionable through out the week. If he can't play on Sunday look for Josh Wells to fill in as the starter once again.
Patrick Omameh, who was replaced by Tyler Shatley against the Chargers (partially due to injury, partially due to poor play) also missed practice for the Jaguars. If he can't play it'll likely be more shatley at right guard for the Jaguars.
Also out for the Jaguars during Wednesday's practice were rookies LB Blair Brown and DE Dawuane Smoot. Stay tuned for updates on the two reserve/special teams players later in the week.
Limited in practice were RB Leonard Fournette (Ankle), WR Arrelious Benn (knee), TE Marcedes Lewis (knee), and LB/DE Lerentee McCray (foot).
The injury bug has certainly arrived in Jacksonville, but this team appears equipped to handle one or more injuries as they take on the winless Browns.
