4 Jacksonville Jaguars that we can already call busts
This Jacksonville Jaguars corner can’t get on the field despite injuries.
You could say that giving up on a rookie is harsh and even a sign of impatience, but the truth of the matter is that Josiah Scott should be on the field more. Injuries have struck the Jaguars so bad this season that they have needed to rely heavily on their rookie class.
C.J. Henderson started eight games before he was placed on the Injured Reserve List with a groin injury. The same is true for defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton, who had become a key contributor on defense before he sustained a knee injury. Even defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson is getting some snaps on defense even though he hasn’t been much of a factor in 2020.
Meanwhile, Josiah Scott can see the field despite the fact the team’s thee starting cornerbacks are out with injuries. Instead, veteran Tre Herndon and undrafted rookie Luq Barcoo are getting plenty of playing time.
So far, Scott has played on 58 snaps this year. He’s registered nine total tackles and allowed five receptions on five targets, good for an 83.3 completion rate. Moreover, he’s giving up more than 15 yards per catch, which explains why the Jaguars brass may be hesitant to give him more playing time.
