When the Jacksonville Jaguars lineup tonight to play the Baltimore Ravens a few starting spots are still available on this roster.
The joint practices between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens are over and now it’s time to get down to business.
Are you ready for some preseason NFL football?
As both teams take the field tonight from Baltimore, the Jaguars will bring with them a roster that is still trying to recover from injuries during the 2018 season and ones that have affected the team during training camp.
When the Jaguars released its first unofficial depth chart earlier this week, there were a few surprises, but nothing you would consider earth-shattering. There does appear to be a question at right tackle ESPN.com’s Michael DiRocco said it is about rookie Jawaan Taylor getting himself ready for the next level.

"“There really aren’t any starting jobs open, but it will be interesting to see how things shake out at right tackle once the preseason begins,” DiRocco writes. ”The Jaguars drafted Jawaan Taylor in the second round, and the logical thought is it’s his job to lose — but the Jaguars also signed former first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi, who has gotten first-team reps, too.“Taylor has some lower-body mechanics that he needs to clean up, but he’s strong in his upper body and has the nasty approach line coaches love.”"
On the other side, Cam Robinson is listed as the team’s starter at left tackle, although he has not been on the field since Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season.
Marqise Lee is still listed on the depth chart as one of the starters at wide receiver, but he has yet to catch a pass from quarterback Nick Foles. The elder statesman of the wide receiver room is still on the PUP list. He is expected to be in the lineup at some point.
We should see plenty of rookie Gardner Minshew tonight under center. The former Washington State star and sixth-round draft pick could start the game as the Jaguars hold regular-season Foles out one more week before facing his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
On defense, Leon Jacobs will start at strong-side linebacker while Ramik Wilson gets the nod with Quincy Williams on the mend from a meniscus tear. Myles Jack will man the middle from the SAM position.
