Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien (finger/calf) is doubtful for Week 2 against the Dolphins.

Cyprien missed most of the preseason with a broken bone in his hand. He was able to make it back for the season opener, but injured his calf in the loss. With CB Dwayne Gratz (ankle) also out, the Jaguars' secondary should present an easy target for Ryan Tannehill.
Sep 19 - 9:38 AM

The Jaguars expect SS Johnathan Cyprien (broken hand) back for the regular season opener.

Cyprien's injury is slightly more complicated than the one to teammate Julius Thomas, but both are expected to be on the field when the season begins. Even if he suits up, Cyprien will likely wear a cast the first several weeks of the season.
Aug 17 - 11:32 AM

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien will miss the rest of the preseason with a broken hand.

Cyprien suffered the injury in the Jaguars' preseason opener. It is similar to the injury Julius Thomas suffered in the same game, and both players are expected to miss the rest of the preseason. Cyprien has had an up-and-down career since being selected as the No. 33 overall pick in the 2013 draft, but he finished out 2014 strong.
Aug 15 - 12:36 PM

The Jaguars want third-year SS Johnathan Cyprien to be their version of Kam Chancellor.

Coach Gus Bradley developed Chancellor in Seattle. Since being the No. 33 overall pick in 2013, Cyprien has had an up-and-down two seasons as he's been exposed in coverage. The Jaguars hope that the signing of FS Sergio Brown will allow them to play Cyprien closer to the line of scrimmage and focus on the run game. Cyprien was PFF's No. 1 safety in run defense Weeks 15-17 last season.
Mar 20 - 10:12 AM

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 3 against the Colts.

Cyprien was knocked out in Week 1 and missed last week's blowout loss to the Redskins. The Jaguars looked competent on defense against the Eagles when Cyprien was in the game. They've since surrendered 75 points the past six quarters. Cyprien is a big hitter and key cog in Jacksonville's young defense.

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien remains in the concussion protocol.

Cyprien is having trouble getting cleared after appearing to get knocked out during Week 1 against the Eagles. The Jags' defense has given up 75 points in six quarters since he departed.

SS Johnathan Cyprien (concussion) has been ruled out of the Jaguars' Week 2 matchup with the Redskins.

Cyprien suffered a concussion against the Eagles Week 1, and was not able to practice all week. Josh Evans will likely start in Cyprien's place on Sunday.

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien is in the concussion protocol.

Cyprien, a key piece of a rapidly improving defense, appeared to briefly lose consciousness when his head hit the turf in Week 1. It's not a coincidence that Nick Foles and the Chip Kelly offense finally started clicking after Cyprien left. Robert Griffin III should be hoping the second-year man doesn't get cleared before Sunday.

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien left Sunday's Week 1 game against the Eagles with a possible concussion and is done for the day.

Cyprien hit his head very hard on the turf and may have briefly lost consciousness. The second-year breakout candidate walked under his own power, presumably for concussion testing.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 02:25:00 PM considers second-year SS Johnathan Cyprien the most-likely Jag to "rise" in 2014.

Cyprien was routinely torched his first two months in the league, but steadied down the stretch. He's one of the reasons the Jags went 4-4 over their final eight games. Cyprien figures to remain a work-in-progress in coverage this season, but could be a difference maker against the run.
Wed, Jul 9, 2014 08:36:00 AM

Jaguars rookie SS Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 15.

It's a big loss for Jacksonville if the other team had a better quarterback capable of exploiting Cyprien's absence. Instead, the Bills have E.J. Manuel. Cyprien has played every one of the Jaguars' defensive snaps in 2013.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 02:03:00 PM

Jaguars activated rookie SS Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) from active/PUP.

He's resumed practicing in fully. Cyprien strained his hamstring a week before camp started. He was penned in as the Jaguars' starting strong safety beforehand, and should have enough practice time left to solidify his starting job. He could make his preseason debut on Saturday against the Jets.
Mon, Aug 12, 2013 09:59:00 AM

Jaguars placed SS Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) on the active/NFI list.

Cyprien strained his hamstring working out in Miami last week. The No. 33 overall pick in this year's draft is expected to begin his first training camp sometime next week. Cyprien remains penned in as the Jags' starting strong safety after starring during OTAs and minicamp.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 12:11:00 PM

Jaguars signed second-round SS Johnathan Cyprien to a four-year contract.

Along with No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel, the Jags are counting on Cyprien to step right in as a starter and make a big impact. He was reportedly the MVP of OTAs and minicamps and figures to be even better once the pads come on. Cyprien couples excellent range with the toughness of an in-the-box safety.
