Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Luke Joeckel figures to slide over from left guard to man Blake Bortles' blind side. It's a big downgrade. Starting C Brandon Linder (knee) is questionable. It's unlikely this line creates many running lanes Sunday.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) will be discharged from a San Diego hospital on Monday.

Beachum is fine to return to Jacksonville but remains in the league's concussion protocol. It's hard to envision him suiting up for Sunday's game against Baltimore. If Beachum can't go, Jermey Parnell would likely move from right to left tackle with Patrick Omameh occupying the right side.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) remained hospitalized Monday morning.

Beachum took a knee to the helmet while falling in the Jaguars' Week 2 loss to the Chargers. He was treated on the field for several minutes before being immobilized on a backboard and carted to a waiting ambulance. Thankfully, Beachum reportedly had feeling in his extremities, but this is still a scary situation. We wish him the best.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum was carted off the field with an apparent head injury Week 2 against the Chargers.

Beachum took a knee to the helmet while falling late in the third quarter. He was immobilized on a backboard on the field before being carted off. He was taken to a waiting ambulance outside of the stadium and transferred to a hospital. Thankfully, Beachum did have feeling in his extremities. Luke Joeckel should take over at left tackle.
Sep 18 - 6:52 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley announced Kelvin Beachum has won the left tackle job.

This was never in much doubt as long as Beachum proved healthy, and he has done that in the last couple weeks. With Beachum at tackle, former No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel will switch to left guard. He struggled at the position in the third preseason game.

Jaguars OC Greg Olson said Kelvin Beachum (knee) is expected to start at left tackle in Sunday's third preseason game.

Beachum has been sidelined for most of camp as he attempts to come back from an October ACL tear, but he is finally ready for action. With Beachum taking over at left tackle, Luke Joeckel is expected to get the nod at left guard.
Aug 25 - 11:02 AM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) said he "can see the light" and is nearing the end of his recovery.

Beachum tore his ACL last October and just recently progressed to doing one-on-one pass-blocking drills in practice this week. "Very close," Beachum said. "I don’t know how close, but I feel really close to being similar to myself." Beachum says he's ready now, but the decision is up to coach Gus Bradley.
Aug 24 - 3:49 PM

Coach Gus Bradley said LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) is making progress.

There was concern over Beachum’s status after the Jaguars visited with free agent Will Beatty, but he participated in team drills at Thursday's joint practice. Beachum isn’t expected to play in Jacksonville’s second preseason game.
Aug 20 - 10:21 AM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) participated in some team drills during Thursday's joint practice.

Beachum wasn't a full participant but at least he seems to be trending in the right direction. The former Steeler has been limited all offseason while recovering from a torn ACL. Beachum will serve as the Jaguars' starting left tackle when healthy with former No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel shifting over to left guard.
Aug 19 - 4:39 PM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) has not practiced since August 2.

Beachum, who suffered a torn ACL last October, was ready at the start of training camp, but he sustained a setback early and has been sidelined almost two weeks. The Jaguars brought in free agent OT Will Beatty for a workout last week, prompting fears Beachum could be out for a while, but coach Gus Bradley sounded cautiously optimistic about his progress. With Beachum out, Luke Joeckel started and played well in the preseason opener.
Aug 15 - 8:46 AM

The Florida Times-Union reports Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) is expected to avoid the active/PUP list to start camp.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said Beachum had a "very" good chance to be ready for camp, and it looks like he will be proven right. Beachum will likely be eased in, but he should be 100 percent well before Week 1. Beachum is fully expected to supplant Luke Joeckel as the starting left tackle.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) has a "very" good chance to be ready for the start of training camp.

The Jaguars have always expected Beachum to return early in training camp, but it now sounds like he might not miss any snaps at all. Signed to replace first-round bust Luke Joeckel, Beachum should easily win the left tackle job in camp if he is healthy. Joeckel could end up at left guard.
Jun 18 - 10:44 AM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) said he still does not have a timetable for his return.

Beachum is expected to take Luke Joeckel's spot at left tackle, but he needs to get healthy first. "I’m doing everything I can to put myself in the best position to play football," he said. "As far as an exact time frame [for a debut], I don’t know as of yet." The Jaguars expect Beachum to be ready "early" in training camp, but it would not be surprising if he sat out the entire preseason. He should be ready to go by Week 1.
May 18 - 5:46 PM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (ACL) said he will begin cutting soon.

Beachum tore his ACL in October. He has been running and pushing sleds in a straight line, and he has begun doing pass sets as well. It sounds like he should participate in at least part of training camp, and it would be a surprise if he is not ready for Week 1. Beachum also said he plans to play left tackle, a spot formerly occupied by 2013 No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel. The Jaguars declined to pick up Joeckel's fifth-year option earlier this week.
