Week 2: at Houston Texans

All TE vs HOU

FBG says: Good matchup. The Jaguars season got off to a terrible start as their new star quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone after throwing his first touchdown pass with his new team. With Foles sidelined until at least Week 11, sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew will take over under center for the Jaguars. He has very limited NFL experience, but Minshew did look serviceable last week as he completed 22-or-25 attempts for 275 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Minshew showed great accuracy both downfield and on short throws as he spread the ball around well. Minshew relied heavily on short passes, but he also completed a 64-yard deep ball to D.J. Chark as his primary highlight. The Jaguars signed Josh Dobbs to compete at the quarterback position, but he will slot in as the backup to Minshew for this week. At wide receiver, it was Chris Conley who was the favorite target of Minshew based on the connection they established in training camp. Conley finished with 97 rushing yards, six receptions, and one touchdown. D.J. Chark led the team in receiving though as he hauled in the big 64-yard touchdown bomb on his way to 146 receiving yards. Dede Westbrook would have had an underwhelming start to his season if not for a late-game touchdown as he did not live up to expectations as the Jaguars WR1. Leonard Fournette also amassed a respectable four receptions for 28 yards--solid usage for him out of the backfield. The Texans passing defense gave up 370 passing yards and two touchdowns while picking off Drew Brees once in last week's opener. The defensive line failed to apply consistent pressure as both the interior and edges of this line were in poor form--including J.J. Watt, who looked sluggish. Whitney Mercilus was the only sharp player on this line, as he made a few nice plays and was consistently winning his matchup while also making a great play in the end zone to pick off Drew Brees. New safety Tashaun Gipson had a very tough time over the top as he fell victim to big play after big play by the Saints wide receivers. Cornerback Johnathan Joseph was their best defensive back, while slot man Aaron Colvin was the worst. Colvin performed so poorly that he was actually released on Tuesday. None of the three remaining cornerbacks on the roster can be trusted, so until the Texans can sign another cornerback, the slot will be a position to exploit when facing the Texans--news that bodes well for Dede Westbrook to put up solid numbers this week.

Jaguars | Week 2 injury report for Jacksonville (Fri Sep 13, 04:58 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars OL Cedric Ogbuehi (hamstring), TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) and DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the Houston Texans. WR Marqise Lee (knee) was unable to practice Friday, Sept. 13, while OL Cam Robinson (knee), and CB A.J. Bouye (hip) were limited; all three are listed as questionable. LB Quincy Williams (knee), DT Marcell Dareus (elbow), DL Calais Campbell (foot) and S Ronnie Harrison (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday and were removed from the injury report.

Our View: Ngakoue is a key pass rusher and he is missing a matchup with Laremy Tunsil and an otherwise vulnerable Texans offensive line. Bouye will have to run this week against Will Fuller or Kenny Stills if he is able to go but Doug Marrone said that is not likely. The Texans passing game is set up for success this week.

Jaguars | Week 1 Jacksonville Jaguars inactives (Sun Sep 8, 11:43 AM) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have declared DL Marcell Dareus, LB Austin Calitro, TE Josh Oliver, RB Devine Ozigbo, WR C.J. Board, OT Cam Robinson and OT Cedric Ogbuehi inactive for Week 1.

Our View: Ozigbo won't threaten Ryquell Armstead's role as the backup to Leonard Fournette for now.

Jaguars | Jacksonville's Week 1 injury report (Fri Sep 6, 03:22 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars OL Cedric Ogbuehi (hamstring) and TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 1 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. OL Cam Robinson (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and is listed as doubtful. DT Marcell Dareus (elbow) was limited in practice for a third straight day and is listed as questionable. QB Nick Foles (oblique), WR Marqise Lee (knee), LB Quincy Williams (knee), DE Lerentee McCray (ankle) and LB D.J. Alexander (hamstring) each fully participated in practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Our View: Oliver could play by the end of the month and has a chance to make an impact as a rookie. The team is probably going to be without Robinson, and his backup Ogbuehi. Frank Clark and the new defensive end group in Kansas City could have a big day going after Nick Foles.
