The Jaguars will take on the Arizona Cardinals at home this week in its Week 3 matchup, attempting to secure the first victory of the season for Jacksonville.
Today, Jacksonville hit the practice fields for the first time in preparation for this Sunday’s game, listing several players on its report, including key players such as receiver Laviska Shenault, cornerback CJ Henderson and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris.
Earlier today, Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer stated that Shenault would be able to suit up on Sunday after injuring his shoulder in the team’s loss against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
According to the report, Shenault was a full participant in practice today, a good indication that he will indeed play.
#Jaguars Week 3 injury report vs. Cardinals is lengthy, but not too much to be concerned about:— Demetrius Harvey (@Demetrius82) September 22, 2021

Defensive end/outside linebacker Lerentee McCray (hamstring) missed last week’s matchup but appears to be on the mend, practicing in full in anticipation of Arizona this week.
Starting offensive linemen, A.J. Cann (hamstring) and Brandon Linder (back) were both listed on the report, with Cann participating on a limited basis, and Linder missing the day. As of right now, it doesn’t appear that Linder’s injury is serious, however. His status will ultimately be one to watch over the next two days.
Cann, according to Meyer, is good to go this week and should be expected to participate more as the week goes on.
Cornerbacks Tre Herndon and Henderson both practiced on a limited basis. Henderson was seen working individually off to the side during and prior to practice today. His status will be more clear as the week moves on as well.
The only other player that was listed as not participating today was rookie defensive lineman Jay Tufele. Tufele has yet to suit up for Jacksonville this season, inactive as a healthy scratch through both of the team’s matchups this year.
A slew of players did not participate for Arizona today, and their statuses will be something to watch as the week moves forward, particularly cornerback Marco Wilson, receiver DeAndre Hopkins and offensive linemen Rodney Hudson, Kelvin Beachum and Justin Pugh.
