Jaguars have lost seven receivers so far
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (8/6/14) For a few hours Wednesday, the Jaguars had two healthy receivers who have played in the NFL. That's how many receivers Jacksonville has lost. ESPN.com updated the team's woes at wideout:
Mike Brown went down with hamstring tightness Wednesday after a strong camp. It's unclear how long he'll be out.
Starter Cecil Shorts left the first practice July 25 with hamstring tightness too and has not practiced since. Rookie Allen Robinson strained his hamstring July 31 and will be out at least one more week. Tandon Doss is out indefinitely with a badly sprained ankle.
Rookie Damian Copeland went on IR on Monday with a wrist injury. Rookie Nathan Slaughter sprained his foot and is out several weeks. Ace Sanders, who caught 51 passes last year, took a leave of absence for "personal issues" and will face a four-game substance abuse suspension upon his return.
"Man, I've never seen anything like it," said receiver Kerry Taylor, who started four games last year. "I don't even know what to call it."
Mike Brown dealing with hamstring injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (8/6/14) Jaguars wideout Mike Brown is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, coach Gus Bradley told reporters. Brown is the latest in a slew of Jags receivers to get hurt this preseason.
Jaguars counting on Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (7/17/14) The Jaguars have questions at receiver this season, reports ESPN.
Heading into the season, the only certainties based on experience are Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders. After that, the rest of the group is unknown.
The report says it would seem second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson would naturally be the next two, but both missed most organized team activities and all of minicamp with injuries. They're supposed to be fully cleared for camp, but they missed valuable time.
Next would be Kerry Taylor and Mike Brown, as well as undrafted rookie Allen Hurns. Justin Blackmon is suspended indefinitely.
08/08/2014 23:12 Bortles solid in preseason debut against Bucs
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Blake Bortles was solid in his preseason debut, throwing for 117 yards and leading a second-half drive for a field goal to help the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-10 on Friday night.
Mike Brown is back with the Jaguars for 2014. It's expected he'll compete for playing time in training camp this summer. Injuries pushed Brown onto the field last season and he was pretty decent with 446 yards on 32 catches and two touchdowns over 11 games. Brown might have had the chance to contribute to Jacksonville's offense this season but after the team drafted two receivers with their first three picks we think Brown will struggle to find playing time. We wouldn't draft him.
