T.J. Yeldon had 10 carries for 39 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 73 yards in Jacksonville's second preseason game.

Yeldon played on pass downs with the first-team offense and stayed in the game deep in the first half. After Corey Grant's strong preseason opener, Yeldon showed enough to secure his role as the No. 2 back. Yeldon doesn't have much standalone value behind Leonard Fournette.

Seventh-round rookie Leon Jacobs is expected to be the Jaguars' starting strong-side linebacker.

Jacobs has evidently "drawn praise from teammates and coaches for picking up the defense quickly." The Jags' hole on the strong-side opened up after Paul Posluszny retired, locking Myles Jack into the middle. Jacobs was known more as an athlete than producer coming out of Wisconsin.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco reports second-round rookie D.J. Chark has been the "most impressive receiver" at training camp.

Each of the Jaguars' receivers has earned praise at some point this summer; sophomore Dede Westbrook was the one getting the hype earlier this week. But DiRocco says Chark has "routinely" been making catches over defenders, including CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye. Chark is a phenomenal athlete with long speed and a lengthy frame. He caught his lone target for 15 yards in the first preseason game. The Jaguars may use a committee approach at wideout.

Jaguars.com expects the team to feature Corey Grant more in 2018, "maybe a lot more."

In-house writer John Oehser believes OC Nathaniel Hackett is "too smart to leave a weapon like Grant on the sidelines again." Although it seemed like he was routinely making big plays, Grant touched the ball just 33 times last season. Even if Leonard Fournette is healthy and explosive this year, that number probably needs to go up for Grant. He will struggle for standalone fantasy value, but that would change were Fournette to go down with injury.

Jaguars.com reports Dede Westbrook has remained a standout throughout training camp.

In-house writer John Oehser believes Westbrook might be forcing himself into the Jaguars' top three, and "could be earning him a far bigger role this season than some observers expected." Westbrook has been hyped since the opening days of Jags camp. The Jags have a mass of bodies at receiver, but Westbrook could have some early-season fantasy appeal as a plug-and-play WR4/5.

Jaguars suspended DE Dante Fowler for one week of preseason activities for "fighting and violation of team rules."

Teammate Jalen Ramsey was simultaneously suspended for "violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars’ football player." Ramsey took to Twitter to defend Fowler and tweet his disdain towards the local media Sunday morning. Both will miss the next week of camp and Saturday's contest against the Vikings.

The Jaguars suspended CB Jalen Ramsey for one week of preseason activities for "violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars’ football player."

Ramsey tweeted his disdain for the local media and how he believes they unfairly treated teammate Dante Fowler, stating "if y’all want war, we got sum for y’all" and "#LameAssReporters." It's clearly just a slap on the wrist from the club in hopes Ramsey sticks to football moving forward. He'll miss the next week of camp, including Saturday's contest versus the Vikings.

Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell (calf) is not expected to practice on Sunday.

The Jaguars' big free-agent addition is out with a minor calf injury. Taven Bryan (abdomen) and Jeremy Parnell (knee) are also expected to sit out Sunday's practice.
Aug 12 - 11:08 AM

Jaguars OC Nathaniel Hackett said Dede Westbrook is a better route runner than last season.

Westbrook spent the first 10 weeks of his rookie year on IR. With a full offseason and training camp, he's running tighter routes and is more scheme comfortable. Westbrook started and led the first-team offense in targets in Jacksonville's preseason opener. The Jaguars are muddled at receiver, but Westbrook has potential for a post hype second-year leap.

Jaguars signed CB Kenneth Acker.

The Jaguars cut Dexter McDougle and Charlie Miller in corresponding moves. Acker spent the last two years as a backup in Kansas City after making 13 rookie-year starts with the 49ers. He'll compete for one of Jacksonville's final corner spots.
Aug 11 - 4:07 PM

Jaguars activated DE Dante Fowler from the active/PUP list.

Fowler will begin practicing immediately. He'll still be out for Jacksonville's opening-week game against the Giants for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Fowler will need as much playing time as possible in order to prove he's recovered from an undisclosed upper-body injury that kept him out of Jacksonville's offseason program. The club declined his fifth-year option back in May.

Dede Westbrook said he feels "more comfortable in the offense this year."

A fourth-round pick last year, Westbrook was struggling to learn the playbook even before a core muscle injury sent him to the sidelines during training camp. Now healthy and coming off a full offseason, Westbrook has consistently made plays in camp, and he could push for a starting job during the preseason. He is a fine flier in the 14th round.
Aug 9 - 10:59 AM

Blake Bortles (wrist) said he is pain-free for the first time since 2016.

Bortles originally started experiencing pain in his wrist during the 2016 season, but he did not get the injury fixed. After the pain became worse last year, he finally opted for surgery in January. Now pain-free, he thinks he can focus on just playing football. "It is just a lot of process to be able to go out there and do what you should be able to do without any pain," Bortles said. "To be able to do that now finally is pretty awesome." Bortles is an excellent value in two-quarterback formats.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said second-round WR D.J. Chark still has a "ways to go."

Marrone said the rookie has "made plays" throughout training camp, but believes the team can still get more out of him. A burner with elite athleticism, the LSU alum profiles as a deep threat, though he could be limited to special teams/return work in year one.
Aug 5 - 10:32 AM

Donte Moncrief (knee) has been fully cleared to practice.

Moncrief was limited at the start of training camp. His knee issue cost him some time this offseason but was never a major concern. Moncrief has struggled with injuries the last two years and hasn't produced when healthy. The Jaguars have ascending playmakers in Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook, but Moncrief's fully guaranteed $9.6 million salary is likely going to play a role in his early season snaps.
