Earlier this week, Jaguars' head coach Doug Marrone told the media he wouldn't be surprised if tight end James O'Shaughnessy was removed the Active/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list this week. Wednesday morning, that's precisely what happened. O'Shaughnessy was enjoying a career year in 2019 before suffering a torn ACL in week five of the regular season. He had racked up 14 catches for 153 yards and two scores and was a vital part of an offense that was having success early in the season. O'Shaughnessy figures to be the second or third tight end in the rotation on a weekly basis, but new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden has featured the position heavily.
The Jaguars also announced on Wednesday that rookie edge rusher K'Lavon Chaisson has a minor hamstring issue and will be working off to the side with the team's performance staff. The twentieth overall pick is expected to contribute right away as a rookie, so the Jaguars had better hope this really is a minor thing. Without the preseason, Chaisson will need all the work he can get in training camp. He's expected to compete for the starting job at strong-side linebacker and contribute as a pass rusher.
Four players who the Jaguars signed earlier this week, defensive lineman Josh Mauro, cornerback Tramaine Brock, defensive tackle Carl Davis, and defensive lineman Caraun Reid, are all going through COVID-19 testing protocols. They will not practice with the team until they are cleared.
