Heading into the bye week the Jaguars had their fair share of crucial injuries, but it appears that the Jaguars may be almost completely healthy for their week 9 matchup with the Bengals.
Marqise Lee was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury, but due to the Jaguars extreme lack of WR depth it’s almost a guarantee that he will play.
Rookie WR Dede Westbrook appears set to return for the Jaguars after missing the first half of the season with a core injury that required surgery. He’s been running for several weeks and is now practicing with the team. It looks probably that he will make his NFL debut against the Bengals.
Cam Robinson injured his ankle in the Jaguars last contest against the Colts. While the injury appeared gruesome at the time, all signs are pointing towards Robinson playing this weekend. He was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice.
Leonard Fournette injured his ankle in the Jaguars week six loss to the Rams and wasn't allowed to play against the Colts the following week. After two weeks of healing Fournette appears good to go for Sunday. He was a full participant in Wednesdays practice
Brandon Linder, the Jaguars leader on the offensive line, appears likely to return this week. He missed three contests for the Jaguars. While Tyler Shatley filled in admirably for Linder at center, the Jaguars would love to get their best offensive lineman back for a matchup against the Bengals and Geno Atkins. Linder was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
This is all good news for the Jaguars. The team looks like they might actually be able to deploy their entire arsenal against the Bengals.
