Jags DE Allen might go on IR with knee injury

Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen will miss significant time because of the knee injury he suffered last Sunday and the team might make a determination on whether they'll place him on injured reserve later in the week.

Steelers' defense picks off Luton four times (0:57)

The Jaguars lost to the Steelers 27-3 and have now given up 24 points in nine consecutive games, which is the longest streak in franchise history. All of those have been losses, which ties the longest single-season losing streak in franchise history. The Jaguars also lost nine consecutive games in 2016, and owner Shad Khan and GM Dave Caldwell fired coach Gus Bradley after the ninth loss.

Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell is OUT with an arm injury. Tyler Shatley into the lineup.

Jaguars inactives: QB Gardner Minshew, WR Laviska Shenault, TE James O'Shaughnessy, CB Sidney Jones, LB Quincy Williams, TE Tyler Davis, OK K.C. McDermott. Jones being out is a blow because he's been the Jaguars' best corner. With CB C.J. Henderson on IR, the Jags will start Trey Herndon and Chris Claybrooks outside and D.J. Hayden, who just came off IR, at nickel.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew is working on the field pregame with Tom Myslinski (Jaguars' strength and conditioning coordinator). He's done some rollouts but isn't throwing. Doesn't seem to be wearing anything on his right thumb.

Jaguars rookie WR Laviska Shenault will miss his second consecutive game with a hamstring injury. TE James O'Shaughnessy (knee) also won't play against Pittsburgh at TIAA Bank Field on Sunday. CB Sidney Jones (Achilles), WR Collin Johnson (hamstring) and QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) are questionable.RB James Robinson, who has been limited in practice this week with a shoulder injury, is not on the game report. The team said earlier in the week that Jake Luton would be the starting quarterback.

Jaguars place cornerback Henderson on IR

Cornerback CJ Henderson, the No. 9 overall pick in this year's NFL draft who has six pass breakups and one interception this season, was placed on injured reserve by the Jaguars.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars CB C.J. Henderson did not practice on Thursday because of a groin injury after practicing on a limited basis on Wednesday. That would be a huge loss for the Jaguars against the Steelers and WRs Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster. The team designated CB D.J. Hayden to return from IR earlier on Thursday and the hope would be he'd be able to play if Henderson cannot.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars CB D.J. Hayden (hamstring) has been designated for return from IR, the team announced. They have 21 days to move him to the active roster.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and TEs James O'Shaughnessy (knee) and Tyler Eifert (scheduled day off) did not practice Wednesday. Neither Doug Marrone or Jay Gruden sounded optimistic that Shenault would be on the field for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Tomlin: 'Ridiculous level of respect' for 1-8 Jags

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin dismisses the notion that their next matchup against the Jaguars (1-8) is a "trap game." Said Tomlin: "We are not a Big Ten team playing a MAC opponent. ... That's a group that's trying to kick our butt."

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jaguars announced they have placed RB Chris Thompson (back) on injured reserve and re-signed DL Caraun Reid to the practice squad. Thompson has played a full season just once in his eight-year career (2016). He has seven carries for 20 yards and 20 catches for 146 yards and one TD in eight games this season.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) will start throwing routes on air in practice this week. Marone said they'll see what he looks like but "he [Minshew] won't be ready [to play against Pittsburgh]." So it looks like Jake Luton makes the start against the Steelers. Luton has completed 60.3% of his passes for 473 yards and two TDs with two INTs in his two starts.
