Jaguars DT Roy Miller has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will eventually require surgery.

It's poor timing for a player who just signed a four-year, $16.25 million extension, but isn't a major injury. Miller should be a full participant in the Jags' offseason program. Miller is a run plugger, nothing more, nothing less.

Marcedes Lewis caught 2-of-3 targets for six yards and a touchdown in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Lewis' score came on a well-executed fade in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown since Week 2. Going on 31, Lewis is signed for a hefty $6.65 million next season.
Dec 19 - 12:05 AM

Storm Johnson rushed three times for three yards in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

The seventh-round rookie was a distant third on the depth chart behind Toby Gerhart and Jordan Todman. Johnson could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Gerhart is sidelined by his rib injury.
Dec 19 - 12:03 AM

Jordan Todman rushed five times for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans, adding two catches for five yards.

Todman had the play of the night in the fourth quarter. With the Jags running a fake reverse, Todman took the handoff, made one cut and was off to the races for a 62-yard touchdown. Todman showed serious speed in housing his first score of the year. He could be in for a bigger role in Week 17 if Toby Gerhart (ribs) can't go.
Dec 19 - 12:01 AM

Marqise Lee caught 4-of-6 targets for 65 yards in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Lee led the Jags in receiving on a night where the team generated just 111 net yards through the air. Lee showed some nice explosion after the catch, and continues to look more and more like the stud he was at USC. He'll be an interesting daily-league dart throw in Week 17 against the Texans' shoddy secondary.
Dec 18 - 11:49 PM

Allen Hurns caught 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans.

Blake Bortles completed only 13 passes, so there wasn't much action to go around. Hurns has been a bright spot as an undrafted free agent, but will be returning to a muddled receiver corps in 2015.
Dec 18 - 11:47 PM

Cecil Shorts caught 2-of-7 targets for 15 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans.

It was another brutal effort for a veteran in the midst of a disappointing season, as Shorts committed no fewer than three drops. In a sign of how Shorts' night went, one of his muffs was wiped out by an offensive pass interference penalty. Shorts won't be a recommended DFS play in Week 17 against the Texans.
Dec 18 - 11:45 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed 12 times for 53 yards and a touchdown before leaving the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans with a rib injury.

He added a seven-yard reception. Shaken up in the second half, Gerhart briefly played through what was billed as a rib "contusion," but was then ruled out late in the fourth quarter. He operated as the Jags' clear lead back before going down, but ceded some touches to Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman. Gerhart was feisty between the tackles, shedding defenders and showing off some spin moves. He looked miserably slow when the Jags tried to send him around the edge, however. Gerhart should be considered questionable for next week's finale against the Texans.
Dec 18 - 11:27 PM

Blake Bortles completed 13-of-26 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 21-13, Week 16 win over the Titans, adding five rushes for 50 yards.

Bortles' sprained foot was not an issue. In the merciful end to an unimpressive slate of Thursday night games, Tennessee and Jacksonville put on a reasonably good show. Bortles got off to a painfully slow start, completing just four passes for 10 yards through the Jags' first four drives. He never exactly got in a groove, but finally started driving the ball and sustaining drives. He took "just" four sacks four days after getting walloped for eight by the Ravens. Bortles committed a fumble, but the Jags recovered. Bortles hasn't put a lot of positive things on tape, but has had abysmal protection and a revolving door at running back, receiver and tight end. The jury remains out.
Dec 18 - 11:19 PM

Allen Hurns has 15 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown over his past three games.

He's averaged nine targets in the process. Hurns has been an up-and-down option all season, but is a red-zone threat. That, coupled with his recent usage puts him on the WR3 fringes for Week 16.
Dec 18 - 8:14 PM

Jaguars declared DT Roy Miller, WR Tommy Streeter, CB Teddy Williams, CB Jeremy Harris, S Matt Daniels, OG Tyler Shatley and DE Andre Branch inactive for Week 16 against the Titans.

Miller just signed a four-year, $16.25 million extension on Tuesday, but is battling a sprained knee. As previously reported, Blake Bortles (foot) is ready to go as the Jags' quarterback on Thursday Night Football.
Dec 18 - 6:59 PM

Blake Bortles (foot) is active for Week 16 against the Titans.

The word comes straight from the team. Bortles' mid-foot "sprain" is apparently more of a tweak. It's good news for curious Thursday Night Football viewers, but Bortles has been playing absolutely-brutal football. Chad Henne would probably give the Jags a better chance to win, but that's obviously not their top priority right now. Jax needs Bortles to continue his on-the-field development. Bortles has thrown for multiple scores in just 2-of-12 appearances, and is taking an unholy amount of sacks.
Dec 18 - 5:09 PM

Jaguars signed QB Stephen Morris off their practice squad.

S Matt Daniels was also promoted to the 53-man roster, with Denard Robinson (foot) and LB Khairi Fortt (hamstring) heading to I.R. Morris (6-foot-2, 213) is a big-armed rookie out of Miami who played for Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch in college. He's insurance in case Blake Bortles (foot) can't play Thursday.
Dec 17 - 2:10 PM

Blake Bortles (foot) is questionable for Thursday night's Week 16 game against the Titans but is expected to start.

Bortles sprained his foot in last Sunday's loss to the Ravens but made a quick recovery on a short week and should be under center for this AFC South dumpster fire. Neither Bortles nor Charlie Whitehurst are fantasy options.
Dec 17 - 12:37 PM

Updating a previous item, Denard Robinson (injured reserve) suffered a torn ligament in his foot.

This is merely for bookkeeping purposes with Robinson already on season-ending I.R. His recovery timetable is set at 6-8 weeks, but foot injuries can be awfully tricky for runners. Shoelace should be available for a full offseason as long as he avoids setbacks. He's one of few playmakers in Jacksonville.
