As the Jaguars prepare to leave for Nashville to take on the Titans on Thursday night, they are reasonably healthy heading into the game.
Two players have already been ruled out, but they have been injured and not been able to practice for the past couple of weeks. Receiver D.J. Chark remains slowed by a quadriceps injury and will miss his third straight game. And, defensive lineman Abry Jones is also out for the Titans game with a shin injury.
The Jags are encouraged on the injury front that defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who has been slowed the last couple of weeks with an ankle injury, has been able to practice this week and is ready to go for this AFC South Showdown. Meanwhile, defensive back Jalen Ramsey, who’s been on the injury report the last three weeks with a knee problem, was again able to practice this week and we’ll be ready to take on Tennessee’s top receiver Corey Davis.
The Titans have a serious concern for linebacker Derrick Morgan with a knee injury, who has been unable to practice at all and is listed as questionable. The better news for Tennessee is that injuries to both starting defensive backs Malcolm Butler (quadriceps) and Adoree Jackson (wrist) during last week’s game with the Jets, apparently won’t keep them out. Both were able to practice including today’s walk-through and have been taken off of the injury report.
The same is also true with quarterback Marcus Mariota and his right hand injury, as he was able to fully practice Tuesday and Wednesday and is ready to face Jacksonville
Of course the biggest returnee for the Jaguars is running back Leonard Fournette, who we wrote about earlier on Wednesday is back from his one game NFL suspension for his conduct in the Bills game. Fournette was ejected in the third quarter for fighting with Buffalo is Shaq Lawson, and when he missed last Sunday, it was the eighth game that he has not played this season.
Jacksonville struggle to run the ball greatly last week in the 6 – 0 win over the coals with running backs T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde only game 52 yards on the ground. So, needless to say, they are looking forward to Fournette being back in the backfield.
