Preseason Game 3 vs Atlanta Falcons Aug 25th Falcons_DIGITAL - Page 77

A huge return in a big moment in game action will look good on Greene’s resume as he vies for a roster spot at receiver and returner. Can he do it again this week, or will another receiver – Jaydon Mickens or Shane Wynn, perhaps – fl ash enough to take the lead as the primary punt returner? and Robinson knows he will face the best pass rusher for each opponent this season. Pretty much every time Robinson was up against it throughout his career – college and pro – he has answered the call and improved. It’s a must for this Jaguars offense to run on all cylinders. Players to watch tonight With the starters expected to play a little deeper into the game than the last two weeks, here are a few Jaguars to keep an eye on against the Falcons: • #56 DE Dante Fowler Jr.: The fourth-year defensive end missed last week while serving a suspension for a violation of team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars player. This came after Fowler practiced only two days in training camp after rehabbing a shoulder injury. Can Fowler regain focus and perform at the high level that the Jaguars saw down the stretch and in the postseason last year? If so, the defense will be that much better in 2018. • #20 CB Jalen Ramsey: The third-year cornerback is coming off a week away from the team while serving a team-issued suspension for a violation of team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars player. He’s arguably the best player on the roster and could be the best corner in the league… let’s see how he responds after a week away. No matter the noise in the media surrounding what he says – even about Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan – the guess here is Jalen will continue to be Jalen on the fi eld – and that’s great news for the Jaguars. • #88 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins: The free-agent addition has fl ashed in training camp, but in the Preseason Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints Seferian-Jenkins played just 14 snaps (13 offense, 1 special teams) without a reception. He was held out of last week’s game against the Vikings as a precaution. The Jaguars would love to see his practice-fi eld chemistry with quarterback Blake Bortles transfer to the game fi eld before opening day. This could be the wrinkle in the offense that the Jaguars have been searching for over the past few seasons. • #74 LT Cam Robinson: The second-year left tackle is looking for marked improvement from his rookie season. Pride of the Jaguars left tackle Tony Boselli has mentioned Robinson’s technique – footwork mainly – that Robinson continues to work on. Last week, Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter recorded two tackles, a sack a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit while lining up mainly against Robinson on the offensive left, • #90 DL Taven Bryan: The 2018 fi rst-round draft pick has not seen the fi eld for a preseason game while nursing a nagging abdominal issue. He returned to the practice fi eld last week in Minnesota, but still did not dress for the game. When healthy, his size, strength and ability to soak up information from veterans has made his game fi t right in with the rest of the defensive line. Let’s see it in a game against another offensive line. AP IMAGES
