Jackson had one solo tackle, one sack and one forced fumble Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson played just 37 of 62 defensive snaps Sunday, and although his stat line wasn't inflated, the diversity is a nice sign. He now has a career-high eight sacks this season and adds a whopping four forced fumbles. Still, he's a risky IDP option in championship week with most of his value relying on getting to the quarterback.

Jackson had two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

The sack is Jackson's sixth of the season, and he also added a pass break-up. The Jaguars feature another quality matchup against the Seahawks offensive line in Week 14.

Jackson had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson posted three tackles (two solo), 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble against the Colts on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson doubled his sack total Sunday, and he's on pace to eclipse his current career high of 6.5 sacks. While it's another solid year for Jackson, it's nothing special compared to the rest of the league, and he isn't considered a high-caliber IDP threat at this time.

Jackson (groin) wasn't on Friday's injury report and is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Ravens, which will be played in London, Mike Kay of First Coast News reports

EDGE Analysis

Jackson looks to put pressure on quarterback Joe Flacco, as well as clog up running lanes for Terrance West (calf). The sixth-year defensive tackle has five solo tackles and one sack so far in 2017.

Jackson injured his groin Sunday against the Titans and is questionable to return, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With little time left in the game, it's unlikely Jackson has time to return. This means we'll likely have to wait until after the game, and possibly later in the week, to learn about his status going forward.

Jackson dropped 12 pounds between OTA's and the start of training camp, Jacksonville.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson, who signed a six-year deal with the Jaguars this offseason worth up to $85.5 million, said he spoke with coaches during OTA's and took their advice to heart. "The two things they talked to me about before we left for our break was losing weight and my cardio," Jackson said. "Coach Wash pulled me aside and said that's what I needed to work on." The 26-year-old played at around 308 pounds in 2015, when he recorded 5.0 sacks and 45 combined tackles, helping to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory. As the headliner of a seven-man Jags free agent class, expectations will be high for Jackson, but head coach Gus Bradley is pleased with what he's seen thus far. "He has done a good job," Bradley said Friday. "I'll tell you what, he does a good job working on the edge. You know when you see him on a guard. Good technique and conditioning, he plays on the edge a little bit more and he shows some rushing."

Jackson is poised to sign with the Jaguars, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The report notes that the defensive lineman's anticipated five or six-year deal with Jacksonville is expected to average in the range of $15 million per season. Jackson is coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 45 tackles and five sacks for the Broncos, with the Florida Times-Union suggesting that Jackson seems likely "to play the three-technique defensive tackle position" with the Jaguars, while splitting time with Sen'Derrick Marks.

Jackson remains a priority for the Broncos to re-sign, but he could be poised to test the free agent market if the team places its exclusive franchise tag on Von Miller, the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson is reportedly seeking a contract worth around $14 million per season, but the Broncos have only offered less than $11 million thus far. As a result, the parties haven't been able to strike agreement on a long-term deal. With Miller's situation at a similar, albeit more expensive, hurdle, Denver may have to prioritize one player for its franchise tag before Tuesday's deadline. That almost certainly will be Miller, thus leaving Jackson to take calls from interested teams and potentially sign elsewhere this offseason.
