Hometown hurdle? Henry has been quiet in games at Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Some of Derrick Henry’s biggest plays and most productive games have come against the Jaguars. The Jaguars have an impressive streak going against the NFL’s leading rusher this season and last. They haven’t allowed Henry to reach 100 yards rushing in any of his four trips home. We know this guy’s going to get the football and he’s coming downhill,” Jaguars safety Jarrod Wilson said. Only three previous undrafted rookies have surpassed 1,000 yards rushing: Indianapolis’ Dominic Rhodes (1,104 in 2001), Denver’s Phillip Lindsay (1,037 in 2018) and Tampa Bay’s LeGarrette Blount (1,007 in 2010).
Jaguars rule out top pass rusher Josh Allen at Texans
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their best pass rusher at Houston on Sunday.

Jacksonville (1-3) could be down three more defensive regulars against the Texans (0-4). The team could get a boost with the return of starting safety Jarrod Wilson (hamstring). Wilson and linebacker Quincy Williams (core muscle injury) were moved from the IR designated for return list to the 53-man roster Saturday.

JACKSONVILLE, FL – About 12 hours after Jaguars owner Shad Khan fired top executive Tom Coughlin, all the clocks inside the building were reset. “We'd love to see coach Marrone stick around and see this through,” Pro Bowl defensive end Calais Campbell. —Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue skipped most of the offseason and part of training camp in a contract dispute that remains unsettled.
