Doug Marrone says reeling Jaguars no longer hearing message
Jaguars coach Doug Marrone believes his messages to his players are not resonating. The Jaguars, who reached the AFC Championship game last season, lost their fourth consecutive game, falling 24-18 to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Jacksonville dropped to 3-5 and failed to benefit from playing in England at their home away from home, Wembley Stadium. The upcoming bye week should provide everyone with an opportunity to do some soul searching — Marrone included.
Who are the expendable players on the Jaguars roster?
Needless to say, the 2018 Jacksonville Jaguars season has not gone as we had expected. Currently tied with the Indianapolis Colts in the cellar of the AFC South heading into the bye week, the team is at a crucial crossroads regarding how they want to attack this roster moving forward. The front office under the thumb of football czar Tom Coughlin won’t make any major moves before tomorrow’s 4pm EST trade deadline, mainly due to the fact that doing so will admit that they were wrong and dropped the ball heading into the season. Too obstinate and prideful to make any admissions of roster malfeasance, the simple fact of the matter is the Jaguars and their fans are stuck with Blake Bortles and the current players for the remainder of the year. But how should the players on this roster be perceived moving forward?
Leonard Fournette expected back by Week 10
Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, who is missing his fourth straight game Sunday and has yet to complete any game this season because of hamstring injuries, is expected to return after Jacksonville’s bye week, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.
