The NFL made a change to the way injury reports will work this season by dropping the “probable” designation used for players who had dealt with injuries during the week while being expected to play.
That leaves only “questionable,” “doubtful” and “out” and it leaves room for teams to create more uncertainty about their plans than the old system did if they went by the spirit of the rules. The Jaguars have handed in their initial injury report for the 2016 season, but they aren’t being all that mysterious about the status of two players.
Running back Chris Ivory, who has a calf injury, and defensive end Jared Odrick, who went into the concussion protocol after getting hit in the jaw earlier this week, have both been listed as questionable. Coach Gus Bradley suggested both players could have been listed as probable last year, however.
“Both are good,” Bradley said, via the Florida Times Union. “The arrow is up on Odrick and same thing with Ivory. They should be good.”
Bradley added that Ivory’s calf issue is unlikely to alter the rotation in the backfield with T.J. Yeldon against the Packers.
