The Jacksonville Jaguars had incredible injury luck in 2017, which was a big reason why the team found success. In 2018, that quickly changed as the Jaguars fielded a revolving door of players at various positions due to the injury bug. Now, leading up to the 2019 season, it been Jacksonville rookies and draft picks in particular that have been struggling with injuries thus far throughout training camp and preseason. During yesterday preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, three of the Jaguars seven draft picks were held out for injury right tackle Jawaan Taylor (second-round section), tight end Josh Oliver (third-round selection) and linebacker Quincy Williams (third-round selection). Neither Oliver or Williams traveled to Baltimore this week. Taylor, a player I was hoping to see get some reps in, banged his knee on the ground at Tuesday during joint practice with Baltimore. It sounds like he was held out more for precautionary than any serious concerns, which was the right move. Williams slightly tore his meniscus at practice in early August. Williams, who by all accounts seemed to be thriving at the WILL position as Telvin Smith replacement https://www.jaguarsoutletshop.com/Lyndon_Johnson_Jersey-50, is expected to be back by Week 1 of the regular season, but it is an unfortunate detour toward his development Michael Colubiale Jersey. Oliver was also injured at an early August practice, and according to head coach Doug Marrone, suffered a ignificant hamstring injury. His status for the first game of the season is in doubt, which really leaves the Jags shorthanded with an underwhelming tight end group https://www.jaguarsoutletshop.com/Dj_Chark_Jersey-35. Meanwhile, running back Ryquell Armstead, a fifth-round pick in April, was forced to exit his first ever preseason game, as he was evaluated for a concussion. Armstead carried the ball eight times for just 22 yards (which led the team), but looked strong doing so. If it was deemed a concussion, then Armstead will have to miss some practice time and enter the league concussion protocol. We are still waiting for an update on his status. INJURY UPDATE:Running back Ryquell Armstead is being evaluated for a concussion.
