The Jaguars, even with Leonard Fournette's minor hamstring injury, have been fortunate to this point in the season on the injury front.
Leonard Fournette is the only player expected to miss practice on Thursday and according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN will test out his injured hamstring during practice on Friday. If all goes well then Fournette should be geared up to face the Patriots on Sunday in an AFC Championship rematch, a contest that also marks the Jaguars first home game of 2018.
Weak side linebacker Telvin Smith was added to the pre practice injury update today with a back injury. He's still expected to participate in practice, so this shouldn't be a cause for concern.
Center Brandon Linder, who didn't practice on Wednesday with a knee injury sustained during the preseason, should be back out on the practice field today. At this point his availability for Sunday's game shouldn't be in question.
Right tackle Jermey Parnell is still listed with a knee injury that was sustained last week, but that injury hasn't forced him to miss any game time or practice time this week. He played against the Giants and should be good to go moving forward.
Tight End Austin Seferian-Jenkins remains on the injury report with a core muscle injury, but has participated in every practice since last Thursday. He was effective for the Jaguars against the Giants.
Return man Jaydon Mickens (knee) and strong side linebacker Leon Jacobs (ankle) were both removed from the pre practice injury update and should be full participants on Thursday.
The big question here still remains: Will Leonard Fournette play against the Patriots and if he does play how much?
Stay tuned throughout the rest of the week!
