JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette's sore foot will keep him out of Thursday's preseason game against Tampa Bay. Wide receiver Marqise Lee, who suffered an ankle injury on Sunday, also will not play against the Bucs, coach Doug Marrone said. Fournette missed practice on Sunday and Monday and Marrone said the fourth overall pick will be evaluated later in the week to see if he can return to practice on the weekend. "We're just being smart on it," Marrone said. "Obviously we're going to be smart with him and Marqise, so we'll probably hold those guys out for at least until after the game." Fournette, who attended Monday's joint practice with Tampa Bay in a
No, NFL preseason games do not matter. And yes, many have issues with the league's preseason format (and ticket pricing). But the NFL preseason schedule does at least present fans chances to see teams that otherwise would not come to their cities given
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee was carted off the practice field Sunday after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury to his right leg. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said after practice he wasn't sure of the extent of Lee's injury. Lee's lower right leg was placed in an air cast.
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — The Bears claimed placekicker Roberto Aguayo on Sunday, which likely will re-open a competition that seemingly closed a week ago. Aguayo starred at Florida State and was a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year, but only made 71 percent of his field goal attempts (22/31) as a rookie and missed two PATs, too. Connor Barth, who was replaced by Aguayo in Tampa Bay after the 2015 season, hit 78.3 percent of his field goals last year (18/23) and missed one PAT. The Bears waived undrafted free agent Andy Philips last Monday, leaving Barth as the only placekicker on the training camp roster. At the least, Aguayo will provide competition for Barth — but at best, he
Roberto Aguayo’s rough rookie season convinced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that a kicker competition in 2017 would be a good idea. After Aguayo’s struggles Friday night in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Bucs have cut him. The second-year kicker had three chances to impress against Cincy, but he missed an extra point early in the game and a 47-yard field goal attempt with one minute left in the fourth quarter. His only make was a 20-yard chip shot in the first quarter. Meanwhile, his competition did well with his only opportunity. In the third quarter, Nick Folk nailed a 45-yard field goal. Aguayo entered the game ahead of Folk on the team’s depth chart, but clearly his performance
TAMPA, Fla. – After a disastrous start to the preseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived kicker Roberto Aguayo. Aguayo missed an extra point in the second quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals Friday night. He was then brought out late in the fourth quarter on a 47-yard attempt. The ball sailed wide right. His one made field goal was a 20-yard kick on the Bucs' opening possession. "Honestly, the extra point felt good. I know I pushed it a little bit, and I felt hopefully it would stay in but it broke right. Unlucky," Aguayo said after the game. ?"That last one, I was just trying to put a good hit on it. I hit it good. It was starting down the line and it just kept fading. Not what I wanted.
