We're at the point in the season where injuries are really starting to pile up for the Jaguars and for most teams around the league. Luckily for the Jaguars most of the players on their injury report are dealing with minor tweaks instead of injuries that should hold them out for weeks at a time. Here's the latest injury report:
QB Blake Bortles, Right Wrist, Full Participant
WR Jealen Strong, Hamstring, Limited
WR Marqise Lee, Ribs, DNP
CB Jalen Ramsey, Ankle, Limited
SS Jarrod Wilson, Shoulder, Limited
RB Leonard Fournette, Ankle, Full
FB Tommy Bohanan, Knee, Full
LB Donald Payne, Hamstring, Full Participant
LB Lerentee McCray, Knee, DNP
RG AJ Cann, Hand, Limited
C Brandon Linder, Knee/Illness, Limited
DT Malik Jackson, Groin, Limited
Several changes took place between Wednesday and Thursday. Brandon Linder returned to practice after missing Wednesday with an undisclosed illness. Backup strong safety Jarrod Wilson also returned to practice in a limited capacity. If starting safety Barry Church were to sustain an injury having Wilson in place as the backup is key - he provides speed, big hitting ability, and a nose for the football. Good news for the Jaguars rushing attack - both Leonard Fournette and Tommy Bohanan practiced in full on Thursday after being limited Wednesday.The only major injury concerns for the Jaguars in their upcoming matchup with Pittsburgh are Marqise Lee and Lerentee McCray. Already thin at WR without Allen Robinson and Dede Westbrook the Jaguars would be forced to rely heavily on two unproven (for the Jaguars) players in Jealen Strong and Keelan Cole IF Lee is unable to go on Sunday. McCray was limited Wednesday but didn't practice at all on Thursday. He is core a special teamer and one of the more talented backups on the entire roster. He has 1.5 sacks so far in 2017. Stay tuned for more!
