Jaguars placed CB Aaron Colvin (knee) on the reserve/NFI list.

As expected. Colvin will miss at least the first six games of the season, and may sit out the whole year after tearing his ACL at the Senior Bowl. If the Jaguars are in contention, Colvin might get a look late in the season.

Jaguars second-round WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remains sidelined, and will sit out Thursday's preseason finale.

As reporter Ryan O'Halloran points out, five weeks and three days will have elapsed between Robinson's injury and the Jags' opener. That means he should be ready to go, but it's not looking like a guarantee. Robinson has long-term upside, but is off the 2014 re-draft radar.

Suspended WR Ace Sanders returned to the Jaguars on Sunday.

Sanders took a leave of absence after it was announced he'd be suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the substance abuse policy. He missed the first three preseason games but might get some work in the finale. Once the season starts, Sanders can't practice with the team until Week 5.

Marcedes Lewis had two catches for 45 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

He was targeted twice in the passing game. Lewis is a critical part of the Jaguars' offense as a blocker, and should provide Chad Henne with a red-zone option. He has a six catches for 100 yards in three preseason games. Lewis should go undrafted in fantasy leagues.
Aug 23 - 1:22 AM

Cecil Shorts was held without a catch in his preseason debut.

Shorts rotated with Allen Hurns in two-wide sets and didn't appear fully healthy. He finished with two targets in the passing game. Shorts offers WR3 value in the eleventh round of fantasy drafts, but comes with red flag injury risks.
Aug 23 - 12:45 AM

Marqise Lee had three catches for 10 yards in the Friday night's preseason game.

Lee started and got the majority of work in two-wide sets. It was a step back after he secured all four of his targets last week, including a touchdown. Lee was manhandled on his blocking assignments and took a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the second quarter. He has a 7/37/1 line in two preseason starts. Lee is set up to lead the Jaguars in receiving this year, but is going to struggle with consistency. He's a WR4/5 flier.
Aug 23 - 12:41 AM

UDFA Allen Hurns had seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' third preseason game Friday night.

Hurns saw regular snaps with the first team, playing opposite Marqise Lee in two-wide sets. He played in OC Jedd Fisch’s system at Miami and has shown good chemistry with Chad Henne and Blake Bortles. Hurns' touchdown came against second-stringers on an 11-yard pass from Bortles in the third quarter. He's now up to 13 receptions for 230 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games. Hurns is a candidate to start Week 1 over Lee or Cecil Shorts. He's worth a look as a late-round flier.

Storm Johnson rushed five times for 11 yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Lions.

Johnson was the No. 3 running back through Jacksonville's rotation. He had more carries than Denard Robinson, but averaged 2.2 yards per attempt. Johnson has 25 carries for just 46 yards through three preseason games.
Aug 23 - 12:03 AM

Denard Robinson had one carry for 12 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

Robinson worked with the second- and third-team offenses and remains behind Jordan Todman to back up Toby Gerhart. Robinson is competing with Storm Johnson for the No. 3 running back job. He has 14 carries for 29 yards through three preseason games.
Aug 22 - 11:59 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said following Friday night's preseason game that Chad Henne will start Week 1 against the Eagles.

The Jaguars are sticking to their plan of not rushing Blake Bortles despite him clearly outplaying Henne in the preseason. Henne has completed 25-of-38 passes (65.7 percent) for 231 yards with one touchdown and two fumbles through three games. He'll be on a short leash and need to be an effective game manager to keep the job. Bortles is going to push for starts sooner than later.
Aug 22 - 11:41 PM

Jordan Todman had five carries for three yards in Friday night's preseason game, adding three catches for 32 yards.

Todman saw time with the first team and spelled Toby Gerhart on third downs in the first quarter. He's considered the Jaguars' best pass protector and has locked up the No. 2 running back. Todman would likely be used in a committee if Gerhart went down. He has 25 touches for 88 yards through three preseason games.
Aug 22 - 11:35 PM

Toby Gerhart had 10 carries for 32 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game Friday night.

Gerhart was held in check by the Lions' dominant run defense, and had a long run of seven yards. He was spelled on some third downs by Jordan Todman, but remains in line for an all-purpose role. Gerhart is limited as a runner and rarely gets more than what's blocked. He's averaging 3.18 YPC in two preseason starts. Gerhart's projected workload makes him an ideal RB2 target in the third round.
Aug 22 - 11:04 PM

Blake Bortles completed 10-of-16 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

Bortles came off the bench at the end of the first half and led the Jaguars to a field goal. He played with the starters for the first time this preseason and didn't disappoint. Bortles showed good anticipation on his throws and was able to lead his receivers into open spots. He's 28-of-44 for 435 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions through three preseason games. Chad Henne remains the favorite to start Week 1, but it's becoming clear Bortles gives Jacksonville its best chance to win.
Aug 22 - 10:29 PM

Chad Henne completed 9-of-14 passes for 71 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

Henne played into the second quarter before being removed for Blake Bortles. He averaged a pathetic 5.1 yards per attempt and struggled when under pressure, taking two sacks. The Jaguars plan remains to open the season with Henne starting, but it's becoming clear that Bortles gives the them their best chance to win both Week 1 and in the long term. Henne has completed 25-of-38 passes (65.7 percent) for 231 yards with one touchdown and two fumbles through three preseason games.
Aug 22 - 9:42 PM

Blake Bortles received 7-8 first-team snaps during Tuesday's practice.

That was up from the three first-team reps Bortles took on Monday. The Jags are slowly bringing the No. 3 overall pick along while quietly avoiding the quarterback competition that went down in Cleveland. Through two preseason games, Bortles is 18-of-28 for 277 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, good for a 96.9 passer rating. We'd be a little surprised if he's not starting games for the Jags by Halloween.
