it's hard to tell what kind of team the Jacksonville Jaguars are right now. The good news is that their Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills will give a clearer picture. The Bills have won three straight after dropping the opener, so they will be a good barometer for the Jags.
Beating the Bills would be huge for the Jaguars, as it would show they're the team everyone thought they were before the start of the 2023 season. However, it won't be easy. Buffalo ranks second in points scored and points allowed in the NFL. This means that they're equally adept at putting points on the scoreboard and preventing opponents from reaching the end zone.
Working in the Jaguars' favor is that their defense isn't as formidable but is steady nevertheless. Similarly, their offense isn't lacking weapons and if they play up to their potential, this could turn out to be a pretty intriguing game. With that in mind, here's everything you know for the London game in Week 5.

Jaguars vs. Bills Injury Report for Week 5
The Jags have already ruled out defensive end Dawuane Smoot, cornerback Christian Braswell and linebacker Devin Lloyd. They had also ruled out wide receiver Parker Washington but they placed him on Injury Reserve Saturday to pave the way for Cam Robinson, who served a four-game suspension to start the 2023 season.
Wide receiver Zay Jones is questionable but it looks like he'll play after missing the past two weeks. Jamal Agnew, defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi, and defensive back Antonio Johnson also got the questionable tag. Barring any setbacks, the three of them should be good to go Sunday.
On the Bills' sideline, Von Miller says he's a safe bet to face the Jags. On the other hand, defensive end Greg Rousseau and cornerback Tre'Davious White have been ruled out, with the latter being placed on IR.
