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.

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.

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.
Sep 16 - 2:35 PM

Jaguars placed TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Lewis suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He'll be first eligible to return in Week 12, as the Jaguars are on bye in Week 11. Lewis is wholly droppable in 14-team leagues. Lewis' backup, Clay Harbor, is still recovering from a long-term calf injury, and is questionable for Week 3. Journeyman Mickey Shuler is the next man up on the depth chart. The Jags have also promoted TE Marcel Jensen from the practice squad.
Sep 16 - 2:27 PM

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien remains in the concussion protocol.

Cyprien is having trouble getting cleared after appearing to get knocked out during Week 1 against the Eagles. The Jags' defense has given up 75 points in six quarters since he departed.
Sep 16 - 10:08 AM

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) is hoping to practice Wednesday.

Harbor's return has gained more importance as Marcedes Lewis (ankle) is out 6-8 weeks. Right now, Mickey Shuler is the only healthy tight end on the roster.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) says he will return to practice Wednesday.

The Jaguars could use Shorts after Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee both laid eggs in Sunday's loss to Washington, dropping several passes and blowing assignments. "I’ll be practicing Wednesday," Shorts said. "It felt good running around today. I sprinted, so I’ll give it a go on Wednesday." With Shorts back, either Lee or Hurns may lose his job. Allen Robinson is also on the rise after turning six targets into four catches and 75 yards the Skins.
Sep 15 - 3:57 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley confirmed Monday the team will stick with Chad Henne at quarterback for Week 3 against the Colts.

According to reporter Ryan O'Halloran, however, Bradley "took 30 seconds" to answer the question at Monday's press conference. Henne took ten sacks in Sunday's loss to Washington and was victimized on several drops, including on a would-be 80-yard touchdown bomb to UDFA receiver Allen Hurns. Still, signs point to the Jaguars beginning to waffle on their pre-season pledge to keep rookie Blake Bortles plastered to the bench. If the Jags get blown out again versus Indianapolis in Week 3, it could be Bortles time.
Sep 15 - 1:17 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is listed as day to day.

With the Jags down 41-10 and 21 seconds left Sunday, Chad Henne hit Hurns on a short crossing pattern. He ended up spraining his ankle on the tackle. Hurns' already fluttering stock will take another hit if Cecil Shorts (hamstring) can get back this week.
