Jets vs. Jaguars Game Sept30Jets_Digitaly - Page 83

JAGUARS PLAYERS TO WATCH Here are J.P. Shadrick’s key players to watch in today’s game against the New York Jets: • #27 RB Leonard Fournette: I feel like we have heard this one before. Does he get back on the fi eld for the fi rst time since the fi rst half of Week 1? They showed they could play well without him against the Patriots, then they showed why they need him against the Titans. No. 27 needs to be on the fi eld. • #44 LB Myles Jack: Jack made a great heads-up play in the Jets game a year ago with a fumble return for a touchdown. The play-caller of a great defense is going up against a rookie quarterback for the New York Jets. Get everyone going and scare the heck out of this kid Sam Darnold. • #55 DE Lerentee McCray: McCray is the special teams captain and is a core-four player – meaning he plays on all the units. He is also getting more time in the defensive rotation at end and has played well. Good, solid professional football player. There is a reason he was brought here in free agency a couple years ago, and it is showing. His impact might not fl ash in the stat sheet, but it is felt throughout this locker room. • #60 RG A.J. Cann: Cann missed last week’s game with a triceps injury and was replaced by third-year guard Chris Reed. Cann is coming off a great training camp and a solid fi rst couple of weeks. His experience and strength matter for this offensive line. Can he get back on the fi eld with only a week off? • #91 DE Yannick Ngakoue: We list him every week in hopes that he will get home on a quarterback and start the climb back to the Pro Bowl. He made a great play for a tackle in the run game last week, but so far, zero sacks for a guy that some were calling a Defensive Player of the Year candidate. Ngakoue is a prideful, hungry football player that wants to prove he’s the best pass rusher in the league. I’ll keep putting his name on this list until we see it. AP IMAGES
