Jacksonville Jaguars Week 2 snap counts versus Denver Broncos

NFL: Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and start the 2021 campaign with an 0-2 record. After an impressive opening drive leading to a 25-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Lawrence to Marvin Jones Jr., the offense sputtered the rest of the game, while Jacksonville’s defense struggled to contain Teddy Bridgewater and the Denver offense.

Just like we did after last week’s loss to the Houston Texans, let’s take a look at snap counts for the Jaguars against the Broncos this past Sunday, via NFL Game Statistics & Information System.

Note: Number of plays are listed next to the player’s name/position and percentage of total offensive plays are listed in parentheses.

Offense

  • Andrew Norwell, guard, 56 plays (100 percent)
  • Jawaan Taylor, tackle, 56 plays (100 percent)
  • Brandon Linder, center, 56 plays (100 percent)
  • Cam Robinson, tackle, 56 plays (100 percent)
  • Trevor Lawrence (rookie), quarterback, 56 plays (100 percent)
  • Marvin Jones, wide receiver, 49 plays (88 percent)
  • Laviska Shenault, wide receiver, 45 plays (80 percent)
  • D.J. Chark, wide receiver, 45 plays (80 percent)
  • James Robinson, running back, 47 plays (73 percent)
  • Luke Farrell (rookie), tight end, 36 plays (64 percent)
  • A.J. Cann, guard, 36 plays (64 percent)
  • Chris Manhertz, tight end, 27 plays (48 percent)
  • Ben Bartch, tackle, 20 plays (36 percent)
  • Carlos Hyde, running back, 14 plays (25 percent)
  • Laquon Treadwell, wide receiver, nine plays (16 percent)
  • Tyron Johnson, wide receiver, seven plays (12 percent)
  • Jamal Agnew, wide receiver, four plays (seven percent)
  • James O’Shaughnessy, tight end, three plays (five percent)

There were a few injuries on the offensive side of the ball this week, as tight end James O’Shaughnessy, offensive guard A.J. Cann and wide receiver Laviska Shenault all were banged up. O’Shaughnessy suffered a sprained ankle early in the game and is expected to miss three or four weeks. O’Shaughnessy’s absence opened up playing time for rookie tight end Luke Farrell, who out-snapped veteran tight end Chris Manhertz 36-27. It will likely lead to recently signed tight end Jacob Hollister being active for the first time this season next week against the Arizona Cardinals as well.

Cann left the game and did not return, which allowed Ben Bartch to play 20 offensive snaps at guard. The other four offensive linemen — Cam Robinson, Brandon Linder, Andrew Norwell and Jawaan Taylor — played 100 percent of the snaps for the second consecutive week, as did rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Shenault ended up playing 80 percent of the offensive snaps (45 total plays), but only had two catches for negative yardage (-3) and had an MRI on his shoulder on Monday, and is expected to be available to play against the Cardinals.

Defense

  • Rayshawn Jenkins, strong safety, 69 plays (100 percent)
  • Myles Jack, linebacker, 69 plays (100 percent)
  • Shaquill Griffin, cornerback, 68 plays (99 percent)
  • Tyson Campbell (rookie), cornerback, 55 plays (80 percent)
  • Andrew Wingard, free safety, 51 plays (74 percent)
  • Josh Allen, outside linebacker/edge, 49 plays (71 percent)
  • Malcom Brown, defensive tackle, 41 plays (59 percent)
  • Damien Wilson, linebacker, 38 plays (55 percent)
  • Dawuane Smoot, defensive end, 36 plays (46 percent)
  • Jihad Ward, outside linebacker/edge, 35 plays (51 percent)
  • Roy Robertson-Harris, defensive tackle, 34 plays (49 percent)
  • DaVon Hamilton, nose tackle, 32 plays (46 percent)
  • K’Lavon Chaisson, outside linebacker/edge, 31 plays (45 percent)
  • CJ Henderson, cornerback, 30 plays (43 percent)
  • Adam Gotsis, defensive end, 28 plays (41 percent)
  • Chris Claybrooks, cornerback, 22 plays (32 percent)
  • Shaquille Quarterman, linebacker, 20 plays (29 percent)
  • Taven Bryan, defensive tackle, 18 plays (26 percent)
  • Andre Cisco (rookie), safety, 18 plays (26 percent)
  • Rudy Ford, strong safety, 12 plays (22 percent)

The Jaguars were already thin at the cornerback position, as Tre Herndon missed this game, but then a hip injury during the contest to CJ Henderson forced rookie Tyson Campbell into extensive playing time. Campbell played 55 defensive snaps (80 percent of total plays), while Chris Claybrooks also upped his workload to 22 defensive plays (32 percent of snaps). Last week, Campbell only had 29 defensive reps, while Claybrooks had just three.

Rookie safety Andre Cisco may have been shaken up as well, as he was spotted on the exercise bike on the sideline. Cisco played just 18 defensive snaps, while Andrew Wingard played 51 snaps. Linebacker Shaq Quarterman saw his defensive playing time go up this week as well, going from seven plays (nine percent of the action) against the Texans to 20 plays (29 percent) against the Broncos.

Safety Rayshawn Jenkins and linebacker Myles Jack were the only two Jaguars to play 100 percent of the defensive snaps, however, cornerback Shaquill Griffin was close, playing in 68 of the 69 total plays (99 percent).
