Lynn did not elaborate on what led to Taylor being hospitalized, but he said the quarterback was home Sunday night and at practice Monday. Reports say he had a bad reaction to an injection. Lynn insists Taylor will start over Herbert if healthy, despite Herbert shining in Week 2 against the Chiefs. Other reports say Lynn said Taylor gives the team the best chance to win.
He had four catches for 84 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Titans, playing 59 of 75 offensive snaps. The Jaguars had to release an estimated practice report since they play Thursday. They didn’t practice. It's something to keep an eye on during a short week.
After playing in just 15 snaps in Week 1, Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver Tee Higgins saw an uptick in playing time in primetime.
Higgins was in for 60 total plays in the team’s 35-30 Thursday night Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He registered his first career catch in Week 2, which was an 18-yard reception along the sideline late in the second quarter.
The story said Higgins finished the game with three catches for 35 yards. His increased playing time is attributed to becoming more comfortable in Zac Taylor’s offense. Perhaps something to note in the story: Higgins was taking individual receiver reps behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd in Monday’s practice. He could soon emerge as the team’s third best wide receiver, the story said.
