Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (foot) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Gipson was back at practice Friday after sitting Wednesday and Thursday. He's going to give it his all to be out there for the biggest game of his career to date. Odds are Gipson will be out there come Sunday afternoon at 3:05 PM ET.
Jan 19 - 12:21 PM

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (foot) is not expected to practice Thursday.

It is his second missed practice in a row. Coach Doug Marrone said Gipson is trending in the right direction, but he likely needs to get in some work on Friday to play. Jarrod Wilson will fill in if Gipson is forced to sit.

Tashaun Gipson (foot) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He injured his right foot in the Divisional Round against Pittsburgh. Gipson expects to play, though his status will need to be monitored throughout the week. His absence would be an upgrade for Rob Gronkowski.
Jan 17 - 5:00 PM

Tashaun Gipson exited the Divisional Round win over the Steelers with a foot injury.

Gipson suffered the injury in the second half and never returned. The safety was spotted with a boot on his right foot Monday, but he said he will suit up this week. Jarrod Wilson played well in his place -- he broke up a pass downfield late in the game -- but the Jaguars will need Gipson when they head to New England on Sunday.
Jan 15 - 10:04 AM

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) is active for Week 6 against the Bears.

Gipson sprained his knee in Week 4, but evidently got healthy enough during the bye to suit up against the Bears' hot pass defense. Inactive for the Jaguars are WR Rashad Greene, WR Neal Sterling, DE Chris Smith, RB Corey Grant, OL Bryce Harris, QB Brandon Allen and CB Josh Johnson.

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) was downgraded to questionable for Week 6 against the Bears.

Gipson was not listed on the initial report. Late-week downgrades are always a concern, but the safety was able to practice in full Friday. As of now, he should be expected to play.

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) did not practice Monday.

Gipson suffered a sprained knee Week 4 against the Colts. It is concerning he was not able to participate coming off the bye week, but he still has time to get ready for the Bears on Sunday. Even so, he is at best questionable for that game.

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson suffered a sprained knee Week 4 against the Colts.

We did not see him leave the game. He played all but 11 snaps, suggesting the injury happened late. He will have the bye week to heal up before facing the Bears Week 6.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 02:50:00 PM

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for Week 3

Late-week additions are never good, but coach Gus Bradley thinks Gipson will "be fine." Gipson agrees, saying there is "no doubt" he will play. With Prince Amukamara (hamstring, questionable) unlikely to play after sitting out practice all week, an already struggling secondary could be shorthanded against the Ravens.

Jaguars signed FS Tashaun Gipson, formerly of the Browns, to a five-year, $35.5 million contract.

The deal includes $12 million guaranteed. Jacksonville is not winning free agency at the level of the Giants or Dolphins, but they are throwing plenty of money around on defense. After signing Malik Jackson to a massive deal to upgrade the pass rush, the Jags are bringing in the ball-hawking Gipson to shore up the secondary. Gipson should be a big upgrade over Josh Evans and Sergio Brown, but Jacksonville still has some work to do on the back end. For Cleveland, they have now lost four top-tier players on the first day of free agency.

Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer sees free agent FS Tashaun Gipson as a good fit for the Eagles.

Eagles VP of football operations Howie Roseman usually targets "ascending players in their mid-20s" and Gipson would seem to fit that criteria. Berman suggested the Eagles could also pursue George Iloka with Rodney McLeod and Isa Abdul-Quddus as possible fallback options. Philadelphia is looking to replace free agent Walter Thurmond, who saw time at both safety positions last season.
Sun, Mar 6, 2016 10:24:00 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan "heard" free agent FS Tashaun Gipson "would welcome the idea" of playing for the Giants.

No team may be more desperate for a deep, centerfield-type safety than the Giants. Expect them to exhaust all avenues to find a free safety after failing to replace Antrel Rolle last offseason and cycling through a host of warm bodies at the position. Gipson shouldn't command a ton following a down year.
Tue, Mar 1, 2016 08:47:00 PM

Free agent FS Tashaun Gipson told teammate SS Donte Whitner that he's not "too hopeful" that he'll be re-signed by the Browns.

This has been the feeling from Gipson for a while now, as he's hinted for a while that the Browns haven't been engaging in contract negotiations after his disappointing, injury-riddled 2015 season. Expect Gipson to still be an attractive player on the open market. He's proven to be a playmaking ballhawk.
