Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (questionable, ankle) is a game-time decision for Week 2.

Joeckel shed his walking boot Thursday, but didn't practice all this week. He's on the doubtful side of questionable. Sam Young will start if Joeckel is held out.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (ankle) shed his walking boot on Thursday.

Jacksonville's O-line fell apart after Joeckel exited last week's game with an ankle injury. Joeckel hasn't returned to practice yet but losing his walking boot is a step in the right direction. Sam Young would start in Joeckel's place if he can't go Sunday against the Dolphins.
Sep 17 - 3:14 PM

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (sprained ankle) was spotted on crutches and in a walking boot following the team's Week 1 game against the Panthers.

Joeckel will have an MRI on Sunday. He was hopeful after the game he would be back next week, but the boot is not a great sign. Joeckel was able to briefly play through the injury in the second half, but he was clearly limited. Sam Young was dismantled after replacing Joeckel, giving up two snaps in less than a half of work.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel exited Week 1 against the Panthers with an ankle injury.

Joeckel injured his ankle on the final drive of the first half, but came back into the game following the break. He aggravated the injury early in the second half and exited to the locker room. Sam Young replaced Joeckel at left tackle.

Since 2013, the Jaguars have the second-fewest rushing yards in the league while allowing the most sacks.

Simply put, Jacksonville's line has been a disgrace. Much of that has to do with Luke Joeckel, who's been a major disappointment. In 2014, the former No. 2 overall pick finished 67th out of 84 qualified tackles in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Joeckel said he was "too light" and has bulked up to 311 pounds this offseason. Despite Jacksonville's overall poor performance, the guard play was passable last year as both Brandon Linder and Zane Beadles received positive PFF grades.
Apr 26 - 8:59 AM

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel has already added 10-12 pounds since last season.

Joeckel's priority this offseason is to add strength and quality weight after he got down as low as 280 pounds in 2014. He wants to play up at 310-315 pounds, necessary numbers for an NFL left tackle. We're certainly not writing off the talented Joeckel even though he has been a liability rather than an asset through two seasons.
Apr 7 - 10:11 AM

The Jaguars expect to have LT Luke Joeckel (concussion) available this week.

Joeckel was cleared to return from his concussion and is officially probable. Last year's No. 2 overall pick, Joeckel has struggled in pass protection this season. He's allowed 13 quarterback hurries through eight games.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (concussion) has been cleared for non-contact work.

Joeckel still has some steps to get through in the concussion protocol, but has not been ruled out of Sunday's game at Cincy.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 08:50:00 AM

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel was forced from Jacksonville's Week 8 game against the Dolphins with a concussion, and will not return.

Joeckel went down in the first quarter. Undrafted rookie Josh Wells is now in the game on Blake Bortles' blindside. Joeckel has struggled mightily this season, but it's still a major downgrade for a Jags team searching for its second win. Joeckel should be considered week to week.

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch said second-year LT Luke Joeckel looks more athletic and faster this season.

"He looked more athletic than I remember him," Fisch said. "When he was doing his rehab, he spent so much time on his lower body, he came back looking faster." Joeckel missed the final 11 games of last year to ankle surgery. He struggled in his only start at left tackle, but will be returning to an improved offensive line. Austin Pasztor will bookend Joeckel at right tackle.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (broken ankle) is participating at OTAs.

Last year's No. 2 overall pick will have a plate and two wires inside his right ankle for the rest of his life, but Joeckel is all systems go. "I had no problems at all this week," said Joeckel, who doesn't turn 23 until November. "It felt good." Joeckel played 272 snaps as a rookie, 260 at right tackle. Pro Football Focus graded him negatively as both a run and pass blocker. He'll play left tackle this year.

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (broken ankle, injured reserve) will have his cast removed Wednesday and begin weight-bearing exercises.

Joeckel, the No. 2 overall pick in April, broke his right ankle October 6. GM Dave Caldwell reiterated the team fully expects Joeckel to be ready for the start of the upcoming offseason workout schedule. Cameron Bradfield has been filling in at left tackle for the Jaguars, with Austin Pasztor on the right side.

Jaguars placed LT Luke Joeckel on injured reserve with a broken ankle, ending his season.

The No. 2 overall pick of April's draft will undergo surgery later this week. Coach Gus Bradley "definitely" expects Joeckel to be ready for the Jaguars' offseason program. Making the full-time switch to left tackle, Joeckel would benefit immensely from a full offseason. Joeckel turns 23 in November.
