The Jaguars may have lost their top playmaker Sunday for the remainder of the season when wide receiver/punt returner Jamal Agnew suffered a hip injury.

Coach Urban Meyer described the injury and the loss of Agnew's potential impact going forward as devastating. Agnew was injured in the fourth quarter after he got awkwardly twisted on a tackle after a 3-yard catch.

''He's our -- we all know what kind of person he is, talented guy, fast guy,'' Meyer said. ''So we'll know more tomorrow (Monday), but that's a hit square in the jaw. That's a problem.''

Agnew scored on a 66-yard run last week against the Indianapolis Colts. Also, he had been emerging as a big-play receiver.

On the same play Agnew was injured, starting left tackle Cam Robinson suffered a knee injury. Starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin was knocked out of the game with a concussion in the second quarter. Also, cornerback Tyson Campbell suffered a shoulder injury in the second half and did not return.

Jaguars Report Card: Just an aw-FFFul performance by Jaguars in all phases

Jags chief of staff leaving

Meyer confirmed after Sunday's game that Jaguars chief of staff Fernando Lovo, who joined the franchise in January, is leaving the franchise to return to the University of Texas.

''Yeah, he came to me last week, and he wants to be an athletic director, and they offered him a really good job,'' Meyer said. ''I knew that. Fernando's like a son to me, so all positive.''

Meyer shares thoughts on Mullen firing

Meyer said he did not see it coming with Dan Mullen getting fired as the University of Florida football coach Sunday, calling the coaching profession tough.

''He's one of my close friends. He's a guy that was with me 15-plus years,'' Meyer said. ''I didn't see that one coming. I know the expectations in Florida. I lived it. It is a premier place. Dan and Megan are dear friends. I'm sure Shelley talked to Megan. So I'll call him tonight. It's a tough profession.''

Robinson active vs. 49ers

Jaguars' RB James Robinson, who was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco due to knee and heel injuries, was active but was limited to 12 carries for 29 yards. Also, the Jaguars activated wide receiver John Brown from the practice squad. Brown was targeted once Sunday but did not have a catch.

Herndon a healthy scratch

Cornerback Tre Herndon was on the inactive list for the third consecutive game. Joining Herndon on the list Sunday were running back Devine Ozigbo; cornerback Tre Herndon; linebacker Dakota Allen; tight end Jacob Hollister; outside linebacker/defensive end Jordan Smith.

Streak ends for Arnold

Jaguars tight end Dan Arnold has recorded 50-plus receiving yards in the last three games, but the streak ended against the 49ers. Arnold did not make a catch and was not targeted. If Arnold would had 50-plus receiving yards Sunday, he would have become the first tight end in Jaguars' history with four consecutive games of at least 50 yards.

Hits 100 QB rating mark

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo extended his streak to four consecutive games with a passer rating of at least 100. Garoppolo rating against the Jaguars was 126.3 after completing 16 of 22 for 176 yards.

Jags' NFC woes go on

The Jaguars have now lost 14 consecutive games to NFC opponents, a streak that extends to 2018 when they beat the New York Giants 20-15 in the season opener. The Jaguars also squandered an opportunity Sunday to win back-to-back home games for the first time since 2017.

Allen still shines

Coming into Sunday's game, Jaguars outside linebacker Josh Allen had totaled 13 solo tackles had combined for 30 tackles, 24 solos and 3.5 sacks in the past five games. He also had at least one QB hit in each of those five games, including three last week against the Indianapolis Colts. The defense had their problems against the 49ers but Allen combined for 10 tackles, four solo with one tackle for loss.
