Chiefs vs. Jaguars injury report: Jeremy Mincey, Will Rackley miss practice

Jeff Zelevansky

The Jaguars have been lucky, escaping the preseason with just minor injuries and have just a few players missing practice on Monday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars escaped the preseason with just minor injures and appear to actually be getting healthier. The Jaguars saw Marcedes Lewis, Justin Forsett, and Russell Allen participate in practice on Monday in one form or another, as well as Blaine Gabbert throwing the football.

"I did a little more today than I have been and I’ll see how I feel tomorrow. I stretched it down the field a little bit." -Blaine Gabbert

Gabbert has been out for the past few weeks with a hairline fracture in his thumb on his throwing hand, but the team should know by Wednesday if he can grip and throw the football well enough to start on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs as expected.

"He's progressing as planned," Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told the media on Monday. "It's the next step in his recovery to get back so we'll just follow the protocol and it was good. We liked what we saw."

Two players continued to sit out Monday's practice in defensive end Jeremy Mincey and Will Rackley, however. Rackley injured his ankle against the Philadelphia Eagles, but is expected to give it a go on Wednesday and the hope is he's ready to play against the Chiefs.

Mincey on the other hand has been on and off the practice field with what Gus Bradley originally called a "skin condition", which come to find out was an averse reaction to some antibiotics which caused some blisters and such on Mincey's skin. He's expected to be fine overall however, and is waiting for the condition to go away.

The expectation is that everyone should be available for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

We'll know more when the team begins issuing official injury reports on Wednesday, however.
