This Week Outlook
The Jaguars placed safety Andrew Wingard on IR Monday. Wingard picked up a core muscle injury early in Jacksonville's game on Sunday against the Texans.
With Jarrod Wilson returning from the IR before the game, Wingard was already looking at a decrease in playing time. There is no reason to roster Wingard at this point.
Jacksonville traded Ronnie Harrison to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, leaving Wingard and Jarrod Wilson as the only safeties on the Jaguars roster from last season.
Jarrod Wilson was going to start at safety for Jacksonville with or without Harrison. Wingard seems like the likely replacement for Harrison to start the season. The Jaguars like Wingard, who forced a fumble, recorded a sack, and had 30 total tackles last season. Josh Jones, J.R. Reed, and Daniel Thomas are the other options for Jacksonville to replace Harrison.
Andrew Wingard logged six solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one TFL, one sack, one pass defended, and one forced fumble in 25-11 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Wingard replaced starting safety Ronnie Harrison and did an admirable job, stripping Jameis Winston of the ball on his first-ever NFL sack. The rookie out of Wyoming showed enough to remain in the starting lineup should Harrison continue to miss time, but he's probably best left on the waiver wire save for the most desperate of fantasy owners.
