Quiet in Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Ridley caught two of eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Kansas City.

Ridley drew more defensive attention after topping 100 yards in his Jacksonville debut, and he was held in check this time while Christian Kirk led the team with 11 catches for 110 yards on 14 targets. Trevor Lawrence has thrown for just 457 yards through two games, so it's possible that Ridley and Kirk could be productive simultaneously once the talented third-year quarterback finds his groove. Doing so may not be easy in Week 3 against a Houston team that held Lawrence without a passing touchdown in two 2022 meetings.

Huge performance in return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Ridley caught eight of 11 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Colts.

Playing in his first NFL game since Oct. 2021, Ridley made an immediate impact as he caught four passes on the Jaguars' first scoring drive, including a nine-yard TD toss from Trevor Lawrence. The former Falcon ended up being Lawrence's top target, and Ridley doesn't seem to have lost a step at all despite his long layoff. Next up for Jacksonville is a Week 2 clash with a Kansas City defense that had trouble slowing down Amon-Ra St. Brown in a Week 1 loss to the Lions.

Caps off preseason in style

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-26

Ridley brought in all three targets for 50 yards in the Jaguars' 31-18 preseason win over the Dolphins on Saturday night.

Ridley tied for the team lead in receptions while recording a pair of 11-yard grabs, as well as a 28-yard catch that took the ball down to the Dolphins' three-yard line. The 28-year-old has impressed all summer after having missed nearly two full seasons due to a gambling-related suspension, and he appears poised to serve as an integral part of a deep Jaguars air attack beginning with an AFC South road matchup versus the Colts on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Looks sharp after lengthy layoff

Ridley caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Cowboys.

Ridley made his first appearance in an NFL game since Week 7 of the 2021 season, back when he was still a member of the Atlanta Falcons. The 2018 first-round pick looked refreshed after the lengthy, non-injury related layoff, catching both targets from his new quarterback Trevor Lawrence before exiting with the rest of the starters. Ridley's talent is unquestioned, and he appears to be happy in Jacksonville, so we could be in store for a bounce-back season from the 26-year-old. The last time Ridley played a full year in the NFL, he posted a 90/1374/9 receiving line with the Falcons in 2020.

Toe issue related to cleats

The toe issue that Ridley was dealing with was related to the cleats the wideout had been wearing, Michael DiRocco of reports.

The report notes that Ridley has switched cleats and that's expected to solve the issue. Though the wideout was in line to be limited at Wednesday's practice, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union relays that Ridley was able to join team drills. The 2018 first-rounder, who didn't play last season while serving a suspension for violating the NFL's gambling policy, has been "one of the top players of camp thus far" for the Jaguars, according to Harvey.

Limited with minor toe injury

Ridley will be limited at Wednesday's practice due to a toe injury that isn't considered serious, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Ridley missed portions of Tuesday's practice and could be on a similar schedule Wednesday. "He'll be fine," said Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson Wednesday morning. "We were sort of cautionary with [Ridley] yesterday. He'll be back out there today and we'll just monitor him and limit the amount of running that he'll do."

Limited Tuesday

Ridley (undisclosed) sat out portions of Tuesday's practice, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Per, midway through Tuesday's session, Ridley stopped participating in drills and headed over to sit in the team's cool tent. Though the wideout subsequently rejoined his teammates, Ridley didn't return to the field. With that in mind, it appears as though the 28-year-old's limitations weren't injury-related and chances are, he'll be back in action the next time the Jaguars take the field.

Looking good in practice

Ridley is making a strong impression on teammates at training camp and told reporters he hasn't lost a step, John Oehser of reports.

A slew of Jacksonville beat writers have praised Ridley's speed and route running, further fueling the considerable hype that's been building since the Falcons traded him to the Jaguars last fall. He's 21 months removed from his last NFL appearance, but it's easy enough to see why it's become increasingly rare for Ridley to make it past the third round of fantasy drafts. He's 28 years old, topped 1,300 yards in his last full season and now will catch passes from third-year pro Trevor Lawrence.

Getting eased back into action

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-30

Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday the Jaguars are limiting Ridley's reps at OTAs as a way to ease him back into football shape, ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports.

Ridley will be limited at OTAs and minicamp before taking on a full workload for training camp in July. "He hasn't played in a while plus the injury, so we're just trying to be careful with him," Pederson said. "But he's doing a great job. He's picking up the offense well." Ridley hasn't played in a game since October of 2021 due to injury and a suspension that sidelined him for the entire 2022 campaign, but he should have no problem displacing Zay Jones as a starting wideout next to Christian Kirk.
