The Jacksonville Jaguars have added defensive end Calais Campbell to the injury report prior to the game against the New England Patriots.
The Jacksonville Jaguars may have another player to worry about who could be instrumental in a win over the New England Patriots this afternoon. Calais Campbell has been added to the team’s injury report.
The team notified the media at 9:48 this morning. The Associated Press and other media outlets posted on their websites about the potential issue with the Jaguars defensive line. The loss of Campbell, should he not be able to play this afternoon could be a bigger loss than running back Leonard Fournette.
Fournette is still listed as questionable on the injury report with a hamstring injury he suffered last week in the game against the New York Giants. Fournette and the Jaguars have been optimistic the second-year running back would be available for the Patriots game.

Campbell burst on the scene in Jacksonville last season after a career in Arizona. The 32-year-old recorded a career-high and Jaguars record 14.5 sacks in 2017.
He was named First Team All-Pro last season as well as the Defensive Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers Association.
If Campbell is limited today, rookie defensive lineman Taven Bryan could see extensive action. Bryan, the team’s 2018 first-round draft pick out of Florida, has been working behind Campbell at the big defensive end position and can also play inside at the three-technique spot.
Campbell referred to him as the best rookie he has ever worked with while in training camp.
As for Fournette, ESPN.com’s Michael DiRocco posted on his Twitter account that he saw Fournette outside TIAA BAnk Field earlier this afternoon jogging without a wrap on his hamstring.
The Jaguars also get defensive end Dante Fowler this week after missing the first game of the NFL season due to suspension. The fourth-year player could have a big game against the Patriots as he had two sacks in last year’s AFC Title game.
