Jacksonville’s 30-10 loss on Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers was disappointing across the board. The defense seemed to take a step back after looking much better in recent weeks, and Trevor Lawrence and the offense completely sputtered once again as it continues to deal with injuries and an overall lack of talent.
The Jaguars now sit at 2-8, and any hope of a turnaround during the second half of the season is all but lost. Still, the Jags had to change things up quite a bit from the normal rotation as several starters on both sides of the ball had to exit the game with injuries.
Here’s what the snap counts from the loss tell us.
*The following info was obtained by (NFLGSIS).
With Cam Robinson exiting the game late with an injury, both Walker Little and Will Richardson saw some action at tackle. The game was essentially out of hand at that point, but it was good to see the young linemen, especially Little, who started in the win over Buffalo, get more reps.
The Jags also suffered a key injury at receiver as Jamal Agnew left the game late and wouldn’t return. That meant an increase in reps for both Laquon Treadwell (who saw more snaps than even Laviska Shenault Jr., who finished with 50 yards) and Tavon Austin. However, each recorded just one catch. John Brown, who was recently added to the active roster from the practice squad, saw just four snaps and didn’t catch his only target.
Tight end Dan Arnold was kept off the stat sheet despite playing on a majority of offensive snaps. He’s been arguably the team’s most reliable weapon in the passing game, but he was held entirely in check by San Francisco’s defense.
Despite being on the field for 14 offensive snaps, Carlos Hyde didn’t receive a single carry. He was added to ease the burden on James Robinson, but it’s hard to run the ball much when the offense is in an early 17-0 hole for the second-straight week.
The Jaguars suffered injuries to their cornerback group in this game, as well, as both Shaquill Griffin and Tyson Campbell exited the game. The snaps on the outside went to Nevin Lawson and Chris Claybrooks after that, but neither made much of an impact (though Lawson had three tackles).
Safety Rayshawn Jenkins was ejected in this one, and that gave opportunities at safety to second-year player Daniel Thomas, who had four tackles, and rookie Andre Cisco, who had three. Jags fans have eagerly awaited Cisco seeing the field, but he only registered 11 snaps in this one.
Roy Robertson-Harris was on the field for a majority of snaps, and he had one of his more productive games of the season, totaling three tackles and a sack. Elsewhere on the defensive line, Taven Bryan continues to see more reps than he did earlier in the season, though he didn’t impact the stat sheet.
Damien Wilson also briefly exited the game, allowing Shaquille Quarterman and Chapelle Russell to see limited action. Russell had a tackle while Quarterman didn’t record any stats
