The Jaguars are fortunate to be healthy, for the most part, entering the 2018 season.
During Thursday's practice four players were limited. Jalen Ramsey (ankle), Jermey Parnell (knee), Brandon Linder (knee) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle injury) were all limited.
Ramsey was a new addition to the injury report. And while that may a cause concern for some, it shouldn't be. Ramsey was a frequent flyer on the Jaguars injury report last season and rarely practiced, but played fully in every game throughout the regular season and post season.
Jermey Parnell appeared on the team's first injury report of the season on Wednesday, but hasn't missed practice and is expected to play on Sunday.
Brandon Linder missed the final two weeks of the preseason, but Doug Marrone said had the Jaguars been playing in meaningful games he would have been able to go.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins' injury was the most alarming. It was classified by the team as a core muscle injury - the same injury designation that led to surgery for Allen Hurns and Dede Westbrook in recent seasons - but after missing practice Wednesday Seferian-Jenkins returned Thursday in a limited role. Earlier in the week head coach Doug Marrone said that he thought ASJ would be able to play, but couldn't guarantee anything.
All in all the Jaguars are very healthy heading into their first regular season game of 2018. With no players on their 53 man roster missing Thursday practice, the Jaguars could be at full strength (minus Marqise Lee, who is on injured reserve) against the Giants on Sunday.
