Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are injured, Jacksonville Jaguars may luck out -
Ryan Fitzpatrick stood at his locker, a cellphone cradled against his ear, his back to the room, his damaged left thumb wrapped. Beside him sat Geno Smith, who had returned minutes earlier from a visit to the X-ray room at Coliseum.

Marqise Lee offers "different dimensions" to Jaguars offense -
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee continues to battle a hamstring injury that has kept him on the sidelines since the team's Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots. As the Jaguars return from the bye and begin preparation for next Sunday's game against the New York Jets, the second-year receiver's status remains uncertain.

Jaguars developing solid core of offensive playmakers -
The Jacksonville Jaguars have a clear nucleus, at least on one side of the ball. With quarterback Blake Bortles, running back T.J. Yeldon and receivers Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson, the Jaguars (2-5) have a young and talented offensive core that general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley believe will develop together and make the small-market franchise a legitimate threat in the AFC South for years.
