Jacksonville Jaguars Week 5 injury report


The Jacksonville Jaguars are the worst team in the league, but they have an opportunity to get in the win column this week as they take on the St. Louis Rams and their depleted secondary. The good news for Jacksonville is that Justin Blackmon will be returning from his suspension, but the receiving corp could be without Cecil Shorts, who is listed as questionable with a groin injury.

Outside of the wide receiver news, the team will be without tight end Marcedes Lewis and defensive end Jeremy Mincey.

This is a great opportunity for the Jaguars, so we will have to see if they are up for the challenge.

Here is the Jaguars Week 5 injury report:
