  • Will Richardson: Cut loose Wednesday

    The Jaguars released Richardson (ankle) on Wednesday.

    Richardson picked up an ankle injury during Jacksonville's preseason opener Aug. 12 before sitting out the team's two following exhibitions. The 26-year-old offensive lineman, who played 13 games with two starts for the Jaguars last year, will likely look to land a reserve role elsewhere when healthy this regular season.

  • Jaguars' Will Richardson: Injures ankle

    Richardson (ankle) was helped off the field with an ankle injury during the Jaguars' 24-13 loss to the Browns on Friday, John Shipley of reports.

    Richardson's first preseason game was already one to forget prior to the injury, as the left tackle gave up a pair of sacks before suffering the ankle injury. With Cam Robinson entrenched as the starting left tackle and the duo of Jawaan Taylor and Walker Little fighting for the starting right tackle position, the loser of the Taylor-Little battle may slot in as the swing tackle, which could leave Richardson as the odd man out after a rough first preseason outing.

  • Jaguars' Will Richardson: Season over due to finger injury

    Richardson (finger) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Richardson's season will come to an end as a result of this injury. As a silver lining, the highlight of his season came in Richardson's final appearance of 2021, as he recovered a Trevor Lawrence fumble in the end zone for a touchdown in the 26-21 Week 16 loss to the Jets.

  • Jaguars' Will Richardson: Moving to tackle full time

    Richardson is expected to compete full time at left tackle going forward, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    This means Richardson will presumably be Cam Robinson's full-time backup. The 24-year-old went into the 2019 season primarily as a guard, but ended up filling in across the line. He will now focus primarily on protecting Gardner Minshew's blindside if called upon.

    Richardson will start at left tackle Sunday against the Chiefs, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

    Cam Robinson (knee) picked up a knee injury and is listed as doubtful while Cedric Ogbuehi (hamstring) was ruled out for the season opener. Richardson pushed A.J. Cann for the starting job at right guard throughout the preseason, but the injuries will instead provide him the chance to play left tackle.
