How the Jacksonville Jaguars are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma -
While matters much important take place around Florida, Hurricane Irma has created some manageable but nonetheless weird circumstances for the Buccaneers, Dolphins and Jaguars over the last week.

And it would hard to top the one that took place inside Houston’s downtown YMCA location on Monday morning. In a position where improvisation was required, a scrambling Jacksonville team—fresh off a statement rout of the defending division champion Texans—showed up at around 10:30 a.m. local time to get some lifting in.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans could be moved to Nashville -
Hurricane Irma ripped through the state of Florida over the weekend, making it’s way through Jacksonville late Sunday evening into Monday morning, flooding parts of town near the coast, intracoastal area and the St. John’s River. In particular parts of downtown Jacksonville were flooded, including near EverBank Field.

Currently damage is being assessed at the stadium to see if the scheduled home opener against the Tennessee Titans is safe to take place, else it’s possible the game could be moved to Nashville and the season finale on Dec. 31 in Nashville could be flipped to Jacksonville.

Marqise Lee is ready to step in after Allen Robinson injury -
He didn’t want this, but he’s ready.

That’s Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee’s approach in the wake of a serious knee injury sustained by wide receiver Allen Robinson Sunday in the 2017 regular-season opener.

Robinson, the Jaguars’ leading receiver the last three seasons, sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury on the first series of the Jaguars’ 29-7 victory over the Houston Texans Sunday.

The team has yet to officially announce the extent of the injury.
