Marqise Lee trying to overcome “painful injury” - ESPN.com
The Jacksonville Jaguars could be without starting receiver Marqise Lee and starting center Brandon Linder for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.

Lee (ribs) and Linder (illness) were among four players the Jaguars listed as questionable for the game at Heinz Field. Receiver Jaelen Strong (hamstring) and safety Jarrod Wilson (shoulder) -- both reserves -- also will be game-day decisions. Linebacker and core special teams player Lerentee McCray (knee) is out.

What grade would you give the Jacksonville Jaguars through the first quarter of the season? - BigCatCountry.com
As the Jacksonville Jaguars get ready to head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers for Week 5 of the NFL season, we can now look back at the conclusion of the first quarter of 2017. I think if you told most people that after four games, the Jaguars would be a sitting at 2-2 they would take it sight unseen.

Having watching the games however, I think 2-2 is probably a disappointment. The team has had two blow out wins and two maddeningly frustrating losses, both of which could have been wins.

Pittsburgh Steelers excited to face Leonard Fournette - WashingtonPost.com
Mike Tomlin likens each Pittsburgh Steelers opponent to “nameless gray faces,” the coach’s way of telling his players to treat every game the same regardless of who happens to be across the line of scrimmage.

Not all gray faces, however, are created equal. And they’re not all nameless either.

When Pittsburgh (3-1) welcomes Jacksonville (2-2) to Heinz Field on Sunday, the league’s second-ranked defense doesn’t need to be told about the big kid in the Jaguars’ backfield. The Steelers are well aware of the 240 pounds of controlled fury rookie running back Leonard Fournette brings each time the ball is in his hands. Last they checked, they’re not exactly small themselves.
