Jaguars HC Doug Marrone says TE Josh Oliver’s hamstring injury is ‘significant’

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Training Camp Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars will likely be without rookie tight end Josh Oliver through the preseason and maybe even into Week 1 of the regular season due to a hamstring injury that head coach Doug Marrone has labeled as “significant” on Friday before practice.

Veteran tight end Geoff Swaim will likely see an increase in reps because of Oliver’s injury.

The Jaguars signed tight end Donnie Ernsberger on Friday to help fill the void after Oliver went down and they waived/injured rookie tight end Michael Colubiale due to a concussion.
