The Facts: On offense, the Jaguars have three injury situations to watch. Tailback Toby Gerhart (ankle) is not expected to be a full practice participant when the team begins its on-field work on Wednesday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reported Monday. Also, wideout Cecil Shorts III (hamstring) will test out his injury on Tuesday, per Jaguars.com. But there is good news regarding tight end Marcedes Lewis, who has a knee ailment but should play Sunday vs. Washington, according to Oehser.
Diehards Line:As PFT suggests, the Jaguars’ offense had its moments on Sunday, with rookie wideout Allen Hurns‘ two first-half touchdown catches helping Jacksonville to a 17-0 first-half lead. However, the Jaguars gained just 118 yards on 36 plays in the second half. For the game, Jacksonville was just 2-of-14 on third downs. This just in: Extending drives is key to scoring. A healthy complement of skill players is one of the ingredients in that mix.
