Good news for Jaguars: Kicker Josh Lambo returns to lineup after hip injury
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars had a good-news, bad-news afternoon on the injury front. Kicker Josh Lambo will make his return to the field on Sunday after missing a month with a hip injury. Jacksonville used four different kickers in his absence and that void was noticeable on a weekly basis. The loss of Jones hurts the defensive line rotation. Jacksonville also called up rookie tight end Ben Ellefson from the practice squad, released kicker Jon Brown and defensive end Josh Mauro.

Jaguars roster analysis: Young, inexperienced, lacking stars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The Jaguars set their roster at 53 after making cuts Saturday. One thing is clear, whether you call it a rebuild, blowing up the roster, or a youth movement, this is a very young team, one that needs stars to emerge in 2020. Add to that eight players who were rookies last year, and the Jaguars have 24 players out of 53 who have played one year in the NFL or fewer. Im a firm believer that if you have a young quarterback and in our case, we do have a young quarterback and Gardner Minshew. On a Monday, I would obviously go to the roster, and I would start with the secondary, Brunell said.
