As we head into the weekend and all three Florida NFL teams get ready to host opponents in Sunday early action, there are some significant injuries to once again go over.
Here’s the latest with what we know officially and otherwise:
As Jacksonville welcomes division-rival Houston to TIAA Bank Field, they have already ruled out running back Leonard Fournette for this matchup. This will be the fifth time in six games that for that is inactive and Coach Doug Marrone briefly told the media Friday that he has no idea now, when Fournette will return. We continue to stand by our source that told us nine days ago that he will rest through the bye week.
Also significant for the Jaguars is Calais Campbell being listed as questionable with ankle and hip injuries. Campbell (above) is one of the unquestioned leaders for the Jacksonville squad. He is expected to try to play. The Jags did take TJ Yeldon off of their injured list with his ankle problem and he will be active for the game Sunday.
Tampa Bay will be down two defensive lineman, including Pro Bowler Gerald McCoy. McCoy, who injured his calf in the second half of the loss to Atlanta last week, was unable to practice all week. So, it’s not surprising that he’s out. Defensive end Vinny Curry also suffered an ankle injury in the Atlanta game and is likewise out for Sunday. Bucs rookie defensive back Carlton Davis has been hampered by a back injury but was able to practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. Also quarterback Jameis Winston is on the injury report with a hip injury but will play on Sunday against Cleveland.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill had already been ruled out for this game with his injured shoulder. So for the second straight week, Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback in Miami. Meanwhile, on the defensive side of the ball defensive end Cam Wake, who missed last week’s game with an injured knee, is officially listed as questionable for the match up with the Lions.
Likewise, defensive back Bobby McCain, who missed the game with Chicago last Sunday, is also listed as questionable with an injured knee.
The Dolphins went ahead and ruled out last year’s number one pick, defensive end Charles Harris again, for this week with an injured calf. It’s not surprising because here is had not been able to practice all week due to the injury.
