Chris Ivory (ankle/knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ivory tweaked both his knee and ankle in his first game action of the year after missing the first two weeks with an illness. The limited practice suggests he will be ready to play Sunday, but it is a situation to monitor all week. The Jags get the Colts in an early game in London this week.
Sep 29 - 8:47 AM

Chris Ivory tallied 14 yards on 12 carries and secured his only target for nine yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Ivory was absent for the Jaguars’ opening drive but resurfaced on the following possession. The good news is that Ivory out-touched T.J. Yeldon by a comfortable 13-8 margin. The bad news is that he was horribly inefficient and the Jaguars’ offensive line did almost nothing to protect him, standing idly by while Ivory and Yeldon spent the afternoon running into brick walls. Jacksonville’s running game has been stagnant all season and that probably won’t change even with Ivory back in the lineup. Ivory will be a touchdown-or-bust RB3 next week when the Jags travel to London to face the Colts.

Chris Ivory (illness) is active for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Ivory is finally ready to make his Jaguars debut after missing the first two games with what the team is calling a "general medical issue." He won't see a full workload in his first game back but Ivory is still the favorite for goal-line carries. That makes him a touchdown-or-bust RB3. Obviously Ivory's return will put a major dent in T.J. Yeldon's fantasy value.
Sep 25 - 11:54 AM

Chris Ivory (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Coach Gus Bradley said Ivory is on track to make his Jaguars debut. He could be on a bit of a snap count, but Ivory should handle any goal-line work.
Sep 23 - 11:21 AM

Chris Ivory (illness) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Ivory is ready to return from his mysterious ailment and lead the Jaguars' backfield. T.J. Yeldon flopped hard in Ivory's absence. Ivory immediately steps in as the preferred standard league option, but is a mere RB3. He'll hurt fantasy owners if he doesn't find the end zone.
Sep 22 - 6:06 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) is practicing again on Thursday.

Ivory looks set to play, but his workload could be limited coming off the illness. He will also be playing behind a line likely missing its starting center and left tackle. Ivory is shaping up as a touchdown-or-bust RB3.
Sep 22 - 12:42 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

He's expected to play this week after missing the first two games of the season with a mysterious illness. T.J. Yeldon didn't do much in Ivory's absence, turning 28 carries into 67 yards (2.8 YPC) and one touchdown, while also catching 12 passes for 40 yards (3.3 YPR). Ivory should slide in as the early-down hammer and preferred goal-line back in Jacksonville.
Sep 21 - 10:55 AM

Jaguars declared RB Chris Ivory, CB Prince Amukamara, QB Brandon Allen, OL Chris Reed, WR Bryan Walters, DE Tyson Alualu, and DE Chris Smith inactive for Week 2 against the Chargers.

T.J. Yeldon will get the start with Ivory sidelined. Ivory was just released from the hospital on Thursday, but it sounds like he could be ready to start practicing next week. It is likely he is back for Week 3. Amukamara is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Sep 18 - 2:57 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) has been ruled out for Week 2 at the Chargers.

It's officially official. T.J. Yeldon will get another game as the Jaguars' workhorse. He had an ugly Week 1 rushing line against the Packers, but the offensive line didn't create many lanes. Yeldon's spot is much better this time around after Chiefs running backs combined for over 200 total yards last Sunday. Rookie DE Joey Bosa also remains out. Yeldon is a surefire RB2 play.
Sep 16 - 11:09 AM

Chris Ivory (illness) is not practicing Friday.

He's been all but ruled out for Week 2 at San Diego. T.J. Yeldon struggled to find running room last week against the Packers, but he's again set up to handle a high volume of touches in a much better spot against a Swiss-cheese Chargers unit. Yeldon should be locked into lineups as an RB2 with upside.
Sep 16 - 10:23 AM

Chris Ivory (illness) said there are "no more issues," and "now it's just day to day."

"I’m ready to go," Ivory said Thursday. "Did a little cardio today." Ivory is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, but should be ready to rock for Week 3. T.J. Yeldon, who was ineffective in Week 1, will get another start in Ivory's absence. Denard Robinson is handling No. 2 duties.

Chris Ivory (illness) is not practicing on Thursday.

Ivory returned to the team Thursday after spending more than 48 hours in the hospital earlier this week. He is extremely unlikely to play on Sunday — coach Gus Bradley admitted as much Thursday afternoon — leaving T.J. Yeldon as the clear starter against the Chargers. Despite a rough Week 1, Yeldon will be an RB2 for that game.
Sep 15 - 12:09 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) is not practicing Wednesday.

Ivory spent a little more than 48 hours in the hospital Sunday-Tuesday and was just released yesterday afternoon. He's on his way back to health, but his status for Week 2 isn't looking great with a missed practice to start the week. If he misses, T.J. Yeldon will again handle every-down duties in a much better matchup against a Swiss-cheese Chargers run defense.
Sep 14 - 1:58 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) was released from the hospital on Tuesday, but remains uncertain for Week 2.

Ivory spent roughly two days in the hospital. His release obviously suggests the worst is behind him, but with zero details on what's been ailing him, he should be considered 50-50, at best, for Sunday's game against the Chargers. The Jaguars will release an injury report on Wednesday, which could be our first real clue as to Ivory's status. As of this moment, T.J. Yeldon seems most likely to start.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: T.J. Yeldon received the start on Sunday and wound up with 25 touches, although he only turned them into 69 yards. He managed to salvage his day with a TD, but his 1.9 YPC is concerning and Yeldon's contributions in the passing game won't be enough to keep him in play weekly once Ivory is back in the fold. However, if Ivory sits this week, Yeldon will be a great mid-range play at RB across the DFS industry against a Chargers D that ranked towards the bottom of the league vs. the run in 2015.
