The Jaguars lost a pair of offensive players for extended periods during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs.

Head coach Doug Marrone confirmed on Monday that running back Corey Grant is headed to injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury to his foot. He also announced that tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is going on injured reserve as well.

Seferian-Jenkins has been on the injury report because of a core muscle injury recently and Marrone said he needs surgery. Marrone also said that the hope is that Seferian-Jenkins will be able to return at some point this season.

He’ll need to miss at least eight weeks, however. James O'Shaughnessy and Niles Paul are the other tight ends currently on the roster.

Grant is not expected back this season. T.J. Yeldon and Brandon Wilds are the only healthy backs on hand as Leonard Fournette is dealing with a hamstring injury.

  1. Part of the Jaguars success last year was avoiding the injury bug (except Allen Robinson). This year, the offense has been annihilated. They literally didn’t mention that in the terrible Chiefs-centric broadcast…but it’s a big reason for the offensive struggles.

  2. Sorry to hear about ASJ. I hope he keeps on getting better. I was sorry he did not re-sign with the Jets. They did not offer as much as the Jaguars. I hope he does make it back this season.

  3. Yes agreed on what Cheapseater said

    If with even half the people healthy that we have lost , It would have been a totally different ball game against the Chiefs. Take out 4 to 5 offensive starters off the Chiefs offense and I guarantee you they wouldn’t be 5-0 … My Jags have heart and still we went into the Chiefs game with a 3-1 record . Keep fighting strong. Jag Nation Rules !!!

  4. The Jags have had terrible injuries with loss of WR, the Left Tackle, ASJ. You hope they get Leonard F back and he is good to go the rest of the year. I need some other team to beat the Patriots.

  5. I miss Marquise Lee on those crossing routes. That guy was a baller in those plays.

  6. “Chiefs-centric broadcast”…yes, was it ever. Over the top- Mahomes this, Mahomes that.

  7. What’s the over-under on how many games Fournette will average playing each season during his career? 8 1/2 ?
