When Wednesday’s injury report came out, it wasn’t good news for Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark Chark had limited workouts Monday and Tuesday as he suffered from pain. ‘a chest injury, but on Wednesday the team demoted him and he didn’t train at all Generally, a step back on the weekend is not a good sign of a player’s potential availability for a particular game.
However, Thursday morning brought good news for Chark and the Jaguars Chark is “trending upwards,” according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, although his official status will not be determined until the game is over.
Chark erupted last season as rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew’s No 1 target After catching just 14 passes for 174 yards as a rookie, Chark had 73 passes for 1,008 yards and eight scores in his second season He entered 2020 looking like the must-have guy from Minshew
Chark is having a rather slow start to the season this season, with just seven catches (albeit on seven targets) in two games for 107 yards and one touchdown. He sits behind Keelan Cole, Chris Conley and Laviska Shenault in targets, where he is tied for fourth on the team with Tyler Eifert It could be the result of a small sample size, or it could even be the result of that chest injury he is facing.
Regardless, Minshew seems more comfortable throwing at other targets than a year ago, which is at least good news if the Jags were to play this game against the Dolphins without Chark’s services They would obviously prefer to have him on the pitch, though, given his connection to Minshew and his explosiveness on the outside, which paved the way for guys like Cole and Shenault in the slot machine and on the roads. below
