Jaguars UDFA Allen Hurns is expected to open the season as the team's No. 3 receiver, behind Cecil Shorts and Marqise Lee.

Shorts is the X and Lee the Z receiver in two-wide sets. In the three-wides, we suspect Lee will move inside to the slot, with Shorts and Hurns on the outside. Hurns beat out Mike Brown for the No. 3 role, although he will soon be pushed by recovering second-rounder Allen Robinson (hamstring). Despite Hurns' big August, Robinson is by far the superior stash in Dynasty leagues.

Jacques McClendon has been named the Jaguars' starting center over sixth-round rookie Luke Bowanko.

A fifth-year pro, McClendon's lone two starts came at left guard last season. McClendon was shaky in the preseason. It's a trouble spot for the Jags. RG Brandon Linder could eventually kick to the middle.

Jaguars second-round WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remained limited in Monday's practice, but said he'll "definitely" be ready for Sunday's opener against the Eagles.

Specifically, Robinson said he'd be ready for a "role" against Philly. That means his snaps will be limited after missing the entire preseason, but Robinson should get up to speed in a hurry. For now, he's the Jags' No. 4 receiver, but he should eventually pass UDFA Allen Hurns.

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) will not play in Sunday's Week 1 game against the Eagles.

Harbor missed the entire month of August with his severe calf pull. He managed to keep his roster spot because of the sheer lack of depth in the Jags' tight end room. Wavier pickup Mickey Shuler will back up Marcedes Lewis Sunday.
Sep 1 - 12:40 PM

Jaguars signed RB Henry Josey to their practice squad.

Josey shredded the preseason, averaging 6.6 YPC in Philadelphia. He ran 4.43 at the Combine, but stands 5-foot-8, 194, and will likely be viewed as a change-of-pace prospect at the bottom of Jacksonville's tailback depth chart. Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, Josey chose signing with the Jags over the Redskins.
Aug 31 - 5:19 PM

Jaguars claimed TE Mickey Shuler off waivers from the Falcons.

Shuler continues his bounce around the league. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2010.
Aug 31 - 1:53 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is back to 100 percent.

Shorts ended up playing 36 preseason snaps, catching one pass for 17 yards. He enters Week 1 as the Jags' No. 1 receiver, but carries injury risk, QB questions and volume concerns as part of the Jags' run-first scheme. A person "high up" in the Jags organization optimistically said the expectation for Shorts is 80 catches if he stays healthy. We've projected him as the 64th WR in our Draft Guide.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he believes second-round WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) could play in the regular season opener.

Robinson missed the entire preseason, but is close to returning to the field. The missed time has allowed UDFA Allen Hurns to pass him on the depth chart. Robinson will be Jacksonville's No. 4 receiver when healthy.
Aug 30 - 5:23 PM

Jaguars released WR Kerry Taylor.

Taylor started four games for the Jaguars last season, catching 19 balls for 189 yards and a touchdown. Taylor's release likely means preseason-star Allen Hurns has made Jacksonville's final roster, not that there was any doubt.
Aug 30 - 2:45 PM

Jaguars placed WR Tandon Doss on injured reserve, ending his season.

Frequently injured, Doss was tentatively expected to open the year as the Jags' punt returner. They'll have to mix and match until Ace Sanders gets back.
Aug 29 - 4:56 PM

Eagles waived RB Henry Josey.

The Eagles may want to stash Josey on their practice squad, but he is a waiver claim candidate after averaging 6.6 YPC in the preseason and running 4.43 at the Combine. Josey is a dynamic if undersized change-of-pace prospect.
Aug 29 - 2:23 PM

Blake Bortles started Thursday's preseason finale against the Falcons, completing 4-of-6 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown.

Bortles' score was a 57-yard strike to fellow rookie Marqise Lee. Bortles looked ahead of schedule all preseason, and finishes 32-of-51 for 521 yards (10.2 YPA), two touchdowns and zero interceptions. It's looking less and less likely that the Jags will be able to follow through on their plan to "redshirt" Bortles this season. Starter Chad Henne simply isn't good enough.
Aug 28 - 6:57 PM

Blake Bortles will start Thursday's preseason finale against the Falcons.

Bortles handily out-played Chad Henne this preseason, but the Jaguars are still treating him like just any other backup. Considering how shaky the Falcons' first-team defense is, Bortles should put on a show against Atlanta's 2s and 3s, putting even more pressure on Henne. Henne will be under center for Week 1, but it's going to be all but impossible for the Jags to stick to their original plan of redshirting Bortles all season.
Aug 28 - 4:36 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 11:38 AM

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.
