27 players set to be inactive for Jaguars’ final preseason tilt vs. Falcons

·2 min read

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that the majority of their starters will be inactive for their final preseason game on Saturday, releasing the lengthy list of non-participants just prior to kickoff. It is no surprise that the team is making an effort to keep their biggest names out of the matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, as they make every effort to avoid tempting fate to maintain their run of good health heading into the regular season.

Here is the full list of players that are certain to not see action against the Falcons in today’s game listed in order of jersey number:

1 RB Travis Etienne Jr.

2 S Rayshawn Jenkins

7 WR Zay Jones

11 WR Marvin Jones Jr.

13 WR Christian Kirk

16 QB Trevor Lawrence

17 TE Evan Engram

21 CB Darious Williams

25 RB James Robinson

26 CB Shaquill Griffin

32 CB Tyson Campbell

38 S Andre Cisco

39 WR Jamal Agnew

41 OLB Josh Allen

44 OLB Travon Walker

49 DL Arden Key

52 DT DaVon Hamilton

54 LB Foye Oluokun

68 OL Brandon Scherff

74 OL Cam Robinson

75 OL Jawaan Taylor

76 OL Will Richardson Jr.

79 OL Luke Fortner

84 TE Chris Manhertz

91 DL Dawuane Smoot

94 DL Folorunso Fatukasi

95 DL Roy Robertson-Harris

The team has nothing to gain by playing these key contributors in their final preseason exhibition except the pride of completing their schedule with a win heading into the regular season.

Even if these players were to see action against the Falcons, they wouldn’t have played for longer than a few drives. With expectations that they’ll win more than a few games this season, the Jaguars simply couldn’t afford to lose any of their starters in a meaningless preseason game.
