Clay Harbor (calf) returned to Jaguars practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It was Harbor's first practice since going down early in training camp. The Jags need Harbor to get healthy with Marcedes Lewis (ankle) out 6-8 weeks, but it's hard to envision him suiting up for Week 3. Undrafted rookie Marcel Jensen is currently in line for the start.

Toby Gerhart (ankle) returned to Jaguars practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wednesday was just a day of rest for the Jags' lead back, who is fully expected to suit up against the Colts' leaky run defense. Although we like the matchup, it's hard to trust Gerhart as an RB2 since he's managed just 50 yards on his first 25 carries behind the Jags' porous offensive line.
Sep 18 - 3:48 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

Speaking after practice, coach Gus Bradley said Hurns "needs to progress Friday to play Sunday." We wouldn't hold our breath. Owners need to be making other plans for their WR4.
Sep 18 - 3:42 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday.

Per coach Gus Bradley, Shorts "continues to look good." It sounds like he'll be active for Sunday's game against the Colts, but fantasy owners can't be comfortable with Shorts' recent injury history. He'll be a WR5 at risk of going down.
Sep 18 - 3:40 PM

Marqise Lee (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Lee has been battling this hamstring issue since originally tweaking it in the opener. Already in danger of losing his starting job, he'll now really be placed on the back burner and can be dropped in re-draft fantasy formats. Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle) project as the Jags starters if they're active. Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would also have roles.

Marqise Lee (hamstring) will not practice Thursday.

Lee, battling this issue for a couple weeks now, was a limited participant on Wednesday. He's a droppable player as he's been passed by Allen Hurns and might get passed by Allen Robinson on the depth chart.
Sep 18 - 9:59 AM

Jaguars RB Storm Johnson (ankle) is practicing in full this week.

It's his first time practicing in over two weeks. Johnson is No. 4 on the depth chart. At 6'0/216, he's Jacksonville's only power-back behind Toby Gerhart.
Sep 17 - 4:07 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

That's the good news for the Jaguars. The bad news is that Marqise Lee was forced to leave practice early after re-tweaking his hamstring injury from last week. Both should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. UDFA Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice altogether on Wednesday. If none of the three can play, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would be the starters.
Sep 17 - 3:50 PM

Marqise Lee (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Lee re-tweaked his hamstring on Wednesday after battling the soft-tissue issue last week. It's becoming a concern. Fortunately for the Jaguars, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday. Already behind Allen Hurns on the depth chart, Lee is in danger of being passed by Allen Robinson.
Sep 17 - 3:37 PM

Toby Gerhart (ankle) missed practice Wednesday.

Gerhart is simply getting a rest day after hurting his ankle in the opener and running into walls of defenders last week against the Redskins. We can't trust him as any more than a FLEX option for Week 3, even against a weak Colts defense. The Jacksonville offensive line can't pass protect or run block.
Sep 17 - 1:43 PM

Allen Hurns (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hurns remains day-to-day after spraining his ankle in the final minutes of last week's blowout loss to the Redskins. The Jaguars' receiver depth chart is ever-changing. Hurns knows the offense like the back of his hand, but is the least talented of the rookies, while Cecil Shorts (hamstring) aims to get healthy.
Sep 17 - 1:02 PM

Coach Gus Bradley expressed frustration with Marqise Lee and the Jaguars' young receivers.

Bradley said the whole receivers unit had "far too many" mental errors against the Redskins in Week 2. "Are we asking too much. Is there too much in the game plan?" Bradley said. "We’re all in the NFL now. The demands we place on them, they have to be able to handle that." Bradley later singled out Lee as a player who needs to execute his assignment better. Allen Robinson missed the entire preseason. UDFA Allen Hurns knows the offense like the back of his hand. Once Cecil Shorts is healthy, we'd imagine he and Hurns are the starters.
Sep 17 - 10:07 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.
Sep 17 - 9:38 AM

The Jaguars will start sixth-round rookie Luke Bowanko at center in Week 3 against the Colts.

Sam Young will replace since-released Cam Bradfield at right tackle. The Jags gave up ten sacks last week against the Redskins and have been swinging gates up front since the preseason. It has to be the main reason Blake Bortles remains on the bench. Chad Henne will continue to get beaten like a piñata.
Sep 17 - 9:35 AM

Jaguars signed WR Tavarres King.

A 2013 fifth-round pick of the Broncos, King was on the Panthers' practice squad. His signing is an indication the Jags expect at least one of Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle) to miss Week 3.
