Slated to be released

The Jaguars are in line to release Hyde on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report.

Analysis: Per John Shipley of, the move provides the Jaguars with $1.9 million in cap savings, while adding on $450,000 in dead money. This past season, Hyde worked behind top back James Robinson, recording 72 carries for 253 yards and a touchdown as well as 12 catches for 65 yards on 22 targets in 12 games. The 31-year-old will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth backfield option.

Shut down for season

Jacksonville will place Hyde (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: Hyde was diagnosed with the concussion coming out of Jacksonville's Week 14 loss to Tennessee and wasn't able to practice in any fashion last week before he was ruled out in advance of Sunday's 30-16 loss to Houston. With the running back making slow progress through the five-step concussion protocol, Jacksonville will deactivate him to open up a roster spot rather than waiting on Hyde to recover. The 31-year-old concludes his first season with the Jaguars with 72 carries for 253 yards and a touchdown to go with 12 receptions for 65 yards on 22 targets across 12 games. Dare Ogunbowale is in line to serve as the primary understudy to top back James Robinson over the final three games of the season with Hyde out of the picture.

Won't play Sunday

Hyde (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Shipley of reports.

Analysis: Hyde will miss his second game of the season after suffering the concussion during last week's loss to the Titans. James Robinson will continue to work as the starting tailback for Jacksonville, while Dare Ogunbowale is set to fill in as the No. 2 option versus Houston.

Still sitting Thursday

Hyde (concussion) didn't participate at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Hyde sat out practice for the second straight day after entering the concussion protocols. Dare Ogunbowale is poised to take over as Jacksonville's No. 2 tailback behind starter James Robinson if Hyde is unable to play Sunday against the Texans.

Dec 16, 2021 3:30 PM EST

Absent from practice Wednesday

Hyde is not practicing Wednesday due to a concussion, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

Analysis: Hyde took one carry for two yards and caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's blowout loss to the Titans, but it appears that he's since entered the league's concussion protocol. The veteran running back will need to gain full clearance before returning to game action, making his status uncertain for Week 15 against Houston. Dare Ogunbowale will act as the No. 2 option behind James Robinson if Hyde misses time.

Reverts to minor role

Hyde had one carry for two yards and caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's 20-0 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Hyde out-touched and scored a touchdown last week after starter James Robinson lost a fumble, but Robinson reclaimed the primary role Sunday to minimal success (six touches for four yards). Hyde played only 12 offensive snaps in the blowout loss and remains nothing more than a security blanket for fantasy managers should Robinson suffer an injury.

Sees playing time boost

Hyde ran for 24 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: Hyde took over the Jaguars backfield for a time following a first quarter fumble by starter James Robinson, though Hyde was less effective from scrimmage (23 yards on 10 touches) than Robinson (35 yards on nine touches). Hyde also lost his own fumble, so the Jaguars gained nothing by making the switch. Robinson is a better player than Hyde so Hyde should normally get the scraps between the two, but Sunday's bleak showing from Jacksonville is a reminder that Urban Meyer can't be trusted in any respect.

Does little with six carries

Hyde had six carries for 16 yards and failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Hyde played only six fewer offensive snaps than starter James Robinson, but Hyde still only had six touches compared to Robinson's 20. It's the first time since his start in Week 9 that Hyde has receive more than three touches as he remains an afterthought in the offensive gameplan.

Nov 29, 2021 2:09 PM EST

Minimal role in loss

Hyde failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Hyde played 14 offensive snap and didn't have a touch Sunday, and his target didn't come until the fourth quarter. The 31-year-old remains Jacksonville's No. 2 tailback given no other back saw any offensive reps, but he's strictly a handcuff option while James Robinson is available to play.

Nov 22, 2021 12:21 PM EST

Cleared for Week 11

Hyde (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Meanwhile, top back James Robinson (heel/knee) remained limited in practice for the second straight day and is listed as questionable for the matchup. The bruised heel prevented Robinson from playing in the Jaguars' Week 9 win over the Bills, but he returned to action Week 10 and played 58 percent of the offensive snaps while getting 16 touches in Jacksonville's loss to the Colts. Since head coach Urban Meyer didn't suggest that he experienced any setbacks in practice this week, Robinson appears on track to lead the Jacksonville backfield Sunday, so Hyde will likely remain the No. 2 option. Despite Robinson handling a less-than-full workload last week, Hyde played only 18 snaps against Indianapolis and carried twice for four yards while hauling in one of two targets for no gain.

Another limited practice

Hyde (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Hyde will presumably need to practice fully Friday in order to avoid an injury designation in advance of Sunday's game against the 49ers. Either way, his fantasy prospects this weekend are linked to the status of lead back James Robinson (heel/knee), who returned to a limited session Thursday after being sidelined Wednesday.

Nov 18, 2021 12:34 PM EST

Logs limited session

Hyde (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: It remains to be seen if Hyde's shoulder issue is anything that might impact his availability for Sunday's game against the 49ers, but in any case the running back's Week 11 fantasy prospects are tied to the status of James Robinson (heel/knee), who sat out Wednesday's practice. Thursday's injury report should add a degree of clarity with regard to the duo's chances of suiting up this weekend.

Nov 17, 2021 12:37 PM EST

Limited role Week 10

Hyde had two carries for four yards and caught one of two targets for zero yards during Sunday's 23-17 loss at Indianapolis.

Analysis: Hyde ended up receiving the start Sunday, but James Robinson dominated the snaps in his return from a one-game absence due to a heel injury. Coach Urban Meyer indicated Hyde may see more involvement than usual given Robinson was coming off the injury, but that didn't provide to be the case. The veteran tailback remains nothing more than a potential handcuff for Robinson.

Nov 15, 2021 1:08 PM EST

Robinson active, set for No. 2 role

Hyde may still have a heavier workload than usual despite James Robinson (heel) being active for Sunday's game against the Colts, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: Robinson will play after being considered a game-time decision, but Hyde could still see more involvement in the offense. Hyde had only 24 carries for 108 yards and two receptions for 14 yards in five games with Robinson healthy, so a bigger workload doesn't necessary mean the veteran will be a worthwhile fantasy option.

Nov 14, 2021 8:50 AM EST

Busy but inefficient

Hyde ran for 67 yards on 21 carries against Buffalo on Sunday, adding a six-yard catch on two targets.

Analysis: Hyde was not especially effective, but he deserves some credit for taking up the thankless task of running into the teeth of a strong Buffalo defense 20-plus times as James Robinson (heel) sat out. The Jaguars were completely unable to throw the ball, so Hyde had the bull's eye on him all game, and his otherwise plodding numbers provided a stabilizing presence for the Jaguars in the 9-6 upset. It's not clear whether Robinson will be able to play against the Colts in Week 10, but Hyde will continue to be the next man up until Robinson's return.

Nov 7, 2021 2:12 PM EST

Set to start Sunday

Hyde is expected to start at running back Sunday against the Bills since James Robinson (heel) is inactive.

Analysis: Hyde had nine carries for 32 yards and caught six of eight targets for 40 yards after Robinson exited last week's contest with the injury, and Hyde is now set to operate as the Jaguars' lead tailback Sunday. Dare Ogunbowale may also be involved on some passing downs, but it should be Hyde leading the way out of the backfield for Jacksonville versus Buffalo.

Nov 7, 2021 8:37 AM EST

Clear of injury designation

Hyde (calf) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: The 31-year-old was a limited participant Wednesday due to the calf issue, but he was able to log full practices Thursday and Friday. James Robinson (heel) is considered questionable for Sunday's contest, and if he's inactive Hyde is poised to serve as the Jaguars' lead tailback.

Nov 5, 2021 11:59 AM EST

Practices fully Thursday

Hyde (calf) returned to a full practice Thursday.

Analysis: Hyde was limited Wednesday, but his return to a full session Thursday puts him on track to play Sunday against the Bills. The extent of his Week 9 role, however, hinges on the status of James Robinson (heel), who has now logged back-to-back 'DNPs' and is viewed as "day-to-day," according to coach Urban Meyer.

Nov 4, 2021 12:41 PM EST

Logs limited practice

Hyde (calf) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Hyde's practice level gains added import, with top back James Robinson having sat out the session due to a heel issue that clouds his Week 9 availability. It remains to be seen if Hyde's injury might impact his status for Sunday's game against the Bills, but if he's available this weekend and Robinson isn't, added work awaits him against Buffalo's rugged run defense.

Nov 3, 2021 2:10 PM EST

Busy as injury replacement

Hyde ran for 32 yards on nine carries and caught six receptions for 40 yards on eight targets against Seattle on Sunday.

Analysis: Jacksonville was such a mess that this game almost immediately turned to garbage time, and that outcome was perhaps slightly precipitated by a heel injury suffered by starting running back James Robinson. It's not clear what Robinson's status is, but if he misses time then Hyde will likely step in as starter. The Jaguars have a difficult matchup with Buffalo in Week 9.
