The Jaguars announced a change to their injury report ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Dolphins and it’s a negative one for the offense.

Wide receiver DJ Chark has been ruled out. Chark was listed as questionable on Wednesday due to chest and back injuries, but the Jaguars downgraded him on Thursday afternoon.

Keelan Cole, Laviska Shenault, Chris Conley and Collin Johnson have joined Chark at receiver in the first two weeks. Dede Westbrook has been inactive in those games, but could get a spot in the lineup now that Chark won’t be playing.

Chark was the only Jaguars player listed as questionable. Center Brandon Linder (knee) and kicker Josh Lambo (hip) were ruled out with Lambo subsequently going on injured reserve.

  1. That’s a big deal (for anyone not paying attention to the Jags). He’s been commanding the attention of opposing D thus helping other guys get open.

  2. I love watching Minshew play. In terms of physical stature and talent, the kid doesn’t have a whole lot. But he’s a bona fide WINNER! And I don’t mean a Tebow-type winner. He’s a legit NFL QB any way you slice it. He constantly finds ways to get the ball to his play makers. Makes throws you think he has no business making. Creates something out of nothing. Takes great care of the ball. Gets sacked too much, but what are you gonna do behind that line? #7 in the league in passer rating. #4 in completion rate – the kid’s completing 75% of his passes, and he spreads the ball around as well, getting his rookie Shenault involved early on. Tied for 5th in 1st downs, #3 in 1st down %. The guy’s not an electric QB but he can scramble. He’s no deep ball passer, all he does is MOVE THE BALL, keep it moving, pile up 1st downs and throw TDs (6 passing TDs, tied for #2 with guys like Rodgers, Tannehill and Ryan). I like the kid so much I might actually watch the MIA/JAX game just to see him play.
