MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The list of players ruled out Thursday was expectedly short.
It at the very least was_ much _shorter than in the first two 2019 preseason games, with the Jaguars early Thursday evening officially announcing they will hold nine players out of their Preseason Week 3 matchup with the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Jaguars held 30 players out of a preseason-opening loss at Baltimore, then held 27 players out of a Preseason Week 2 loss to Philadelphia. Head Coach Doug Marrone held multiple healthy players out of those games to be as healthy as possible entering the Jaguars’ September 8 regular-season opener against Kansas City.
The nine players held out against the Dolphins Thursday were injury-related and were:
Wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee), running back Alfred Blue (ankle), defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (elbow), tight end Charles Jones, linebacker Jake Ryan (knee), tight end Josh Oliver (hamstring), tight end Geoff Swaim, linebacker Quincy Williams (knee) and linebacker Davis Tull (leg).
