Jaguars

Jaguars LB Quincy Williams expects to be recovered from his meniscus injury for Week 1 after initially fearing he sustained a more serious injury, per Phillip Heilman

Williams said he originally thought he sustained a career-ending injury when doctors told him that he required surgery. 

I’m scared of the hospital anyway,” said Williams, via Heilman. “I ain’t never had surgery. When he said surgery, I was thinking like, ‘Dang.’ The first thing that came to my mind was ‘career-ending.’ It’s the knees. I need my knees. He was like, ‘Surgery.’ I was like, ‘Dang, it’s over with.‘”

  • Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said RB Alfred Blue (ankle) won’t play this week but is not expected to miss a long period of time. (Phillip Heilman)

Ravens

Ravens HC John Harbaugh ruled out G Marshal Yanda from their remaining preseason games due to his ankle/foot injury but is expected to be “ready to go” for Week 1.

He probably could go there and practice and play. But I kind of ruled it out, and he agreed finally,” Harbaugh said, via Jamison Hensley. “We’ll get him ready for the opener and he’ll be ready to go.

  • Harbaugh said of Ravens CB Tavon Young’s recent neck injury: “It’s still a decision that has to be made. Ultimately, it’s the player’s decision about how he wants to handle the injury. Certainly, Tavon wants to play, that’s for sure. We’ll see what happens.”
  • As for Ravens first-round WR Marquise Brown‘s foot injury, Harbaugh said the team will evaluate Brown’s availability for Thursday’s preseason game during this week’s scrimmages against the Eagles: “We’ll just have to see how [Brown’s surgically repaired foot] responds and hopefully he can go there.” (Jamison Hensley)
  • Jamison Hensley of ESPN believes that QB Trace McSorley has done enough this preseason to earn a spot on the 53-man roster, regardless of when Robert Griffin III returns from his thumb injury.
  • Hensley adds that McSorley is expected to contribute on special teams and gives the Ravens a “safety net” given the running nature of quarterbacks in their offense.
