Jaguars OC Greg Olson said Kelvin Beachum (knee) is expected to start at left tackle Sunday against the Bengals.

Beachum has been sidelined for most of camp as he attempts to come back from an October ACL tear, but he is finally ready for action. With Beachum taking over at left tackle, Luke Joeckel is expected to get the nod at left guard.

Jaguars rookie LB Myles Jack will get first-team reps Sunday against the Bengals.

Paul Posluszny is still the starter at middle linebacker, but Jack will get some work with the first-team defense with the veteran expected to play limited snaps. "That experience will be valuable and cool," Jack said. "Even though it’s a preseason game, it will be like the Super Bowl to me." Jack does not look likely to jump Poz this season, but he is the future in the middle.

Suspended WR Justin Blackmon received a one-year suspended sentence Wednesday after pleading guilty to an April DUI charge.

He's also been put on probation. Blackmon will avoid jail time as long as he complies with the conditions set by an Oklahoma judge. An immense talent coming out of Oklahoma State, the former top-five pick has sabotaged his career with repeated substance abuse and other off-field issues. The odds of him ever playing another NFL snap are slim to none.

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) said he "can see the light" and is nearing the end of his recovery.

Beachum tore his ACL last October and just recently progressed to doing one-on-one pass-blocking drills in practice this week. "Very close," Beachum said. "I don’t know how close, but I feel really close to being similar to myself." Beachum says he's ready now, but the decision is up to coach Gus Bradley.

Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times Union expects the Jaguars' backfield to be a 50/50 split this season.

Colleague Ryan O'Halloran predicted last month that it would be a 55/45 split in Chris Ivory's favor. Through two preseason games, Ivory and T.J. Yeldon have shared first-team snaps equally. Ivory is still the better bet for goal-line work while Yeldon is the more polished receiver. The Jaguars could apply a "hot hand" approach at running back this year, making Ivory and Yeldon difficult players to forecast on a weekly basis.

Marqise Lee caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards Saturday night against the Bucs.

Lee's one catch was an impressive effort to convert a third-down in the second quarter, but the fact the pass was delivered by Blake Bortles is the bigger story. Lee looked to be ahead of Rashad Greene on the depth chart and could be making a play for the No. 3 job. Even so, he is unlikely to deliver fantasy value without an injury to Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns.

T.J. Yeldon rushed twice for 15 yards and added a 14-yard score through the air Saturday night against the Bucs.

Yeldon started for the second week in a row, but he rotated fairly evenly with Chris Ivory. It is promising Yeldon saw the red-zone target, but his scoring opportunities will likely be limited while Ivory is healthy. Yeldon is no better than a FLEX option in PPR formats.

Blake Bortles completed 8-of-11 passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns Saturday night against the Bucs.

Bortles looked completely comfortable Saturday night, firing multiple passes to Allen Robinson and hooking up with T.J. Yeldon and Allen Hurns for scores. The touchdown to Hurns was a great touch pass which just floated over the outstretched arm of the defender. Bortles is now 14-of-18 for 190 yards and two scores this preseason.

Coach Gus Bradley said LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) is making progress.

There was concern over Beachum’s status after the Jaguars visited with free agent Will Beatty, but he participated in team drills at Thursday's joint practice. Beachum isn’t expected to play in Jacksonville’s second preseason game.
Aug 20 - 10:21 AM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) participated in some team drills during Thursday's joint practice.

Beachum wasn't a full participant but at least he seems to be trending in the right direction. The former Steeler has been limited all offseason while recovering from a torn ACL. Beachum will serve as the Jaguars' starting left tackle when healthy with former No. 2 overall pick Luke Joeckel shifting over to left guard.

Jaguars signed G/C Jacques McClendon.

The 28-year-old spent the entire offseason with the Dolphins before being released last week. His five career starts came with Jaguars between 2013-2014.
Aug 17 - 8:59 AM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) has not practiced since August 2.

Beachum, who suffered a torn ACL last October, was ready at the start of training camp, but he sustained a setback early and has been sidelined almost two weeks. The Jaguars brought in free agent OT Will Beatty for a workout last week, prompting fears Beachum could be out for a while, but coach Gus Bradley sounded cautiously optimistic about his progress. With Beachum out, Luke Joeckel started and played well in the preseason opener.
Aug 15 - 8:46 AM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said second-round LB Myles Jack "really flashed" during Thursday's preseason opener against the Jets.

He registered two tackles on 29 snaps after taking over for starter Paul Posluszny in the second quarter. Jack committed a personal foul on a late hit but it was otherwise a clean performance for the rookie. "His demeanor and poise on the field were excellent," said Bradley. "His running of the defense was very good. His physical nature jumped out." Jack could end up being the steal of this year's draft after falling to the second round because of knee concerns.
Aug 12 - 3:37 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he was impressed by Marqise Lee's performance in Thursday night's preseason opener.

Lee missed a few practices early in camp with a mild hamstring injury but didn't show any ill effects Thursday. He made the most of his 17 snaps, recording four catches for 49 yards. All of his grabs came in the second quarter with Chad Henne. "It was really good to see," said Bradley. "He appeared to play really fast and made a play there, a couple plays. His speed, like we said, we’ve just got to continue now with him." The third-year wideout is hoping to carve a role behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
Aug 12 - 1:35 PM

T.J. Yeldon rushed four times for 26 yards in the Jaguars' preseason opener against the Jets.

He also caught his lone target for eight yards. Yeldon got the start on Thursday night, but Chris Ivory was quickly in the game and handled all of the goal-line work. Ivory cashed in with a one-yard touchdown plunge. The red zone is where Yeldon struggled as a rookie. These two figure to form a timeshare as long as they're both healthy. Yeldon doesn't have much TD upside.
