Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack exits with hand injury vs. Jaguars

Sports
Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Indianapolis Colts starting running back Marlon Mack exited Sunday's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hand injury. Mack, who was having one of his strongest performances of the season, was knocked out of the game in the third quarter. He rushed 14 times for 109 yards, including four runs of at least 10 yards, and a touchdown before leaving with the injury. The Colts quickly ruled out Mack for the remainder of the game. League sources told NFL Media that Mack's hand injury could be significant. Jonathan Williams became the Colts' primary tailback following Mack's injury. Nyheim Hines backed him up and received snaps as the team's pass-catcher in the backfield. Although Mack has been healthy this year, the third-year running back has struggled with injuries ...

Josh Rosen’s stock rises as Dolphins beat Jaguars

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla., Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Jacksonville Jaguars defenders jostled the Miami Dolphins' offensive line and heckled Josh Rosen as he scanned the field for open teammates. Rosen hurdled over the pressure and continued to buy time, before firing a precise 39-yard pass downfield for a first down. That was just one of the spectacular sequences showcasing Rosen's talent during the Dolphins' 22-7 win against the Jaguars Thursday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. The Dolphins started Ryan Fitzpatrick and kept him in the game until bringing in Rosen in the third quarter. Rosen -- who is competing with Fitzpatrick for the starting job -- had the field goal at his back as he took over on the Dolphins' 1-yard-line. He was able to use his pocket presence and agility to escape pressure a...

Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker James Onwualu will miss the 2019 season after suffering a non-contact knee injury. Onwualu was injured in Monday's joint practice with the Baltimore Ravens. Onwualu and Leon Jacobs were listed as co-starters at strong-side linebackers. "It's tough. He has worked his butt off and worked real hard," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone told reporters. "I saw him [Monday] afterward. It's just a tough situation. "You thank the player for everything he put in, but you kind of know what the road looks like ahead." Marrone did not specify Onwualu's injury. Onwualu had two tackles and a forced fumble in five games with the San Francisco 49ers last season. Jacksonville opens the preseason Thursday against the Ravens in Baltimore.
