Allen Hurns (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It shouldn't keep him from suiting up Sunday against Baltimore. Hurns led the Jags with 82 yards in Week 2, though most of his production came in garbage time. He's worth a bench stash in most leagues.

Jaguars placed DT Michael Bennett on injured reserve.

The 2015 sixth-rounder has made one appearance since his rookie year. He'll likely be cut loose with an injury settlement once he gets healthy.

Jaguars claimed WR Jaelen Strong off waivers from the Texans.

Strong had worn out his welcome in Houston, but is still only 23, and just two years removed from being the No. 70 overall pick of the draft. The Jaguars have nearly nonexistent receiver depth behind Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns. It could be a nice fresh start situation for Strong, though it's ultimately hard to see what will be different from his time in Houston.

Texans waived WR Jaelen Strong.

The 70th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Strong struggled with off-field issues and conditioning during his two-plus-year stay in Houston. He was activated off suspension ahead of Week 2, but the Texans barely played him against the Bengals despite missing Will Fuller, Bruce Ellington, and their entire tight end depth chart to injuries. Strong's NFL future is at best bleak.

Jaguars placed S Calvin Pryor on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

The Jets/Browns bust lasted 10 days in Jacksonville. Pryor will likely be released with an injury settlement once he gets healthy.
Sep 18 - 1:57 PM

Jaguars signed QB Ryan Nassib.

With Blake Bortles fading into oblivion, the Jags decided they needed another quarterback on the roster behind Chad Henne. Nassib played for coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse. With Bortles a weekly threat to get benched, it's conceivable that at some point Henne could be named starter and Nassib could end up the No. 2 with Bortles a healthy scratch. That scenario is probably still a ways away, however. Nassib also isn't good, which is a problem.

Chris Ivory delivered 17 yards on six carries while snagging three-of-four targets for 31 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

All of his carries came in the first half as Jacksonville put an emphasis on its running game early on. Once the Titans started putting points on the board (they won 37-16 after leading 6-3 halftime), the Jaguars had to counter by airing it out, which essentially took Ivory out of the game. Ivory has clearly distanced himself from T.J. Yeldon, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but he’s still just a change-of-pace option behind starter Leonard Fournette. He’ll get the Ravens in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:17 PM

Leonard Fournette contributed 40 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while corralling two-of-five targets for 21 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

Fournette was fed 10 carries in the first half but only saw four with Jacksonville trailing in the second half. He salvaged the afternoon by punching in a goal-line touchdown during garbage time. Game script is going to work against Fournette some weeks, but he’s still the Jaguars’ workhorse and the clear favorite for goal-line carries. He’ll be tested against Baltimore’s stout run defense next week.
Sep 17 - 5:15 PM

Allen Hurns produced six catches for a game-high 82 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

Hurns caught his first pass with 1:47 remaining in the third quarter. With Allen Robinson out, Hurns feasted in garbage time, soaking up five catches for 66 yards in the fourth quarter including a seven-yard touchdown strike from Blake Bortles just before the two-minute warning. Stockpiling garbage time yards was part of Hurns’ weekly routine when he first broke out in 2015, though that was before the Jaguars used a fourth-round pick on a workhorse running back. Leonard Fournette will continue to be the focal point for Jacksonville, though Hurns should still be a popular add on waivers this week.
Sep 17 - 5:14 PM

Marqise Lee nabbed seven-of-12 targets for 76 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

It was a roller coaster afternoon for Lee. He committed an ugly drop after beating his man in coverage in the first quarter and was also the intended receiver on one of Blake Bortles’ interceptions. The ball deflected off Lee’s hands after Bortles threw it behind him and was eventually pulled in by Da’Norris Searcy. Still, Lee produced solid counting stats thanks to a heavy second-half workload (seven targets). He’ll get the Ravens in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:12 PM

Blake Bortles completed 20-of-34 passes for 223 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions while adding 29 yards on four carries Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.

He also lost a fumble and was sacked twice for a loss of 12 yards. Bortles endured a dismal first half, completing just 5-of-12 passes for 41 yards before the break. His first pick came on a pass that was tipped at the line of scrimmage while his second came on a play where he missed Marqise Lee on what should have been a simple crossing route. The Jaguars usually do their best to hide Bortles but they had to lean on their passing game after falling way behind in the second half. Bortles salvaged his stat line by leading a pair of garbage-time scoring drives, but it was still a dreadful performance by the former third overall pick. He could be playing for his job against Baltimore next week.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (ankle) is active for Week 2 against the Titans.

Ramsey didn't practice this week but will give it a go Sunday against his hometown Titans. We'll see what he can do against a Titans' receiving corps led by Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Corey Davis.
Sep 17 - 11:38 AM

Jaguars declared RB T.J. Yeldon, LB Blair Brown, DT Sheldon Day, CB Jalen Myrick, OL William Poehls, S Calvin Pryor and OL Josh Walker inactive for Week 2 against the Titans.

Pryor is out with an ankle injury while Yeldon, who practiced fully this week, appears to be a healthy scratch. Jalen Ramsey (ankle) is active for Jacksonville.
Sep 17 - 11:37 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (questionable, ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Titans.

It's the second report we've heard that Ramsey is expect to play, a surprise considering he didn't practice all week. Ramsey did a great job on DeAndre Hopkins last week, earning PFF's No. 5 cornerback grade out of 91 qualifiers.
Sep 17 - 8:06 AM

Hays Carlyon of 1010 XL in Jacksonville expects CB Jalen Ramsey (questionable, ankle) to play in Week 2.

Carlyon is basing his "guess" on comments made by coach Doug Marrone following Friday's practice. Ramsey didn't practice at all this week, but he showed an ability to play through injuries as a rookie and do so effectively.
