Josh Lambo News

Misses two PATs

Lambo made one of three extra-point attempts and did not attempt a field goal during Sunday's 31-19 loss to Arizona.

Analysis: Lambo remains 0-for-3 on field-goal attempts (two of which were beyond 50 yards) this season and can now add a pair of missed PATs to his ledger. The 30-year-old missed only four field goals and six PATs in 43 games across his first four seasons in Jacksonville, but he's enduring some serious struggles in 2021. The Jaguars seem likely to at least try out some kickers this week, and Lambo figures to have a short leash if he receives another opportunity.

Misses both FGAs

Lambo made his one extra-point attempt and missed both field-goal attempts during Sunday's 23-13 loss to Denver.

Analysis: Lambo didn't receive any easy opportunities as both field-goal attempts came during the second quarter from 48 and 52 yards, but it's certainly not encouraging to see him missing both attempts. The 30-year-old's only attempted field goal during the season opener came from further out at 55 yards, and he has yet to convert through the first two games of the season. Jacksonville's offensive struggles certainly haven't helped, but Lambo is off to a poor start in 2021.

Perfect finish to preseason

Lambo converted both field-goal attempts and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Lambo was 2-for-4 on field goals through the first two exhibition games with the misses coming from 43 and 47 yards, but he got back on track Sunday by converting from 34 and 45 yards. The 30-year-old had some competition early in camp with he and Aldrick Rosas alternating attempts, but the latter was let go and recently signed with the Saints. Lambo is 76-for-80 on field-goal attempts since joining the Jaguars in 2017, and given that accuracy he could be a solid fantasy option this year with the promise of a revamped offense led by rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Facing competition

Lambo and Aldrick Rosas were alternating field-goal attempts in "pressurized situations" during mandatory minicamp, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: Lambo is 76-for-80 on field goals since signing with Jacksonville in 2017, but his role isn't guaranteed entering 2021 after missing 12 games last season due to a hip injury. The 30-year-old carries a $4.375 million cap hit but could be cut with a dead cap of $1.75 million, so there would be some cap savings should the Jaguars opt to move on. Lambo remains the favorite for the job, but he may need a solid showing in training camp in order to earn the trust of new coach Urban Meyer.

Shifts to season-ending IR

The Jaguars placed Lambo (hip) on season-ending injured reserve Monday.

Analysis: Lambo has already come off injured reserve once this season, so he won't be eligible to return again. The 29-year-old aggravated a gluteus medius muscle injury while attempting an onside kick in the final two minutes of Sunday's loss to the Texans. In four appearances with the Jaguars in 2020, Lambo converted all five of his field-goal tries and eight of ten extra-point attempts. Jacksonville signed Aldrick Rosas to the practice squad Monday, and it's always possible that the team could reach back out to Jonathan Brown or Brandon Wright (groin), both of whom previously filled in for Lambo this season.

Season-ending injury feared

Lambo aggravated his his gluteus medius muscle during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans and is expected to miss the remainder of the 2020 campaign, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Jaguars expect to place Lambo on injured reserve in the near future. He previously missed five games due to a lesser version of his current injury, so while Jacksonville hasn't yet officially ruled Lambo out for the year, his chances of retaking the field could be slim. In replacement of Lambo, the Jaguars may seek out the returning services of Jonathan Brown, who started Week 6 against the Lions. Alternatively, if Brandon Wright has managed to recover from his groin injury, it's possible that the rookie out of Georgia State could get another chance.

Injures hip Sunday

Lambo suffered a left hip injury during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, John Shipley of reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old sustained the injury on an onside-kick attempt in the final two minutes. Coach Doug Marrone couldn't provide specifics on the injury but indicated it could be a serious issue. Lambo spent a month on injured reserve with an injury to the same hip before returning in late October, and it's possible he's headed back to the shelf. The veteran made field goals from 30 and 59 yards while converting one of two extra-point attempts Sunday.

Makes lone kick Sunday

Lambo made his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Lambo missed the last four games with a hip injury but returned to action for Sunday's AFC showdown. The Jaguars scored four touchdowns but opted to go for two points three times for strategic reasons, leaving Lambo with an underwhelming fantasy finish. This was more of a case of bad luck than a measure of the coaching staff's faith in Lambo, and he should be a decent fantasy option when the Texans come to town after the Week 8 bye. The Texans have allowed 31 points per game but have a decent red-zone defense, allowing opponents to score on 62.5 percent of trips, 13th in the league.

Oct 26, 2020 2:22 PM EST

Cleared for Week 7

Lambo (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: Lambo's return to action was foreshadowed after the Jaguars activated him from injured reserve Thursday and then cut loose Jonathan Brown, the only other kicker on the 53-man roster. The 29-year-old had been out since Week 2 with the hip injury, but Lambo proved his health by practicing Wednesday through Friday without issue.

Oct 23, 2020 12:20 PM EST

Back in action

The Jaguars activated Lambo (hip) to the 53-man roster from injured reserve.

Analysis: Lambo's return to the active roster comes just one day after he was officially cleared for evaluation at practice. The 29-year-old stands to resume serving as Jacksonville's starting placekicker going forward, beginning with Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Oct 22, 2020 2:05 PM EST

Cleared to resume practicing

The Jaguars designated Lambo (hip) for return from injured reserve Wednesday.

Analysis: The transaction kicks off a 21-day window for Lambo to practice without counting against the 53-man roster, during which period the Jaguars can officially activate him at any time. Depending on how well the veteran is progressing in his recovery, he could have a shot at suiting up against the Chargers on Sunday.

Oct 21, 2020 9:56 AM EST

Expected to return to practice

Lambo (hip) is slated to kick during Wednesday's practice so the training staff can assess his injury, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.

Analysis: The Jaguars have trotted out five different kickers this season, but they could get some stability back if Lambo's healthy enough for Week 7. If he indeed returns to practice Wednesday, it would open up a 21-day window for the Texas A&M product to be activated from IR. The 29-year-old kicker made 33 of 34 field goals last season and connected on all three attempts before getting injured this season.

Oct 19, 2020 11:54 AM EST

Won't play Thursday, set for IR

Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Lambo (hip) is ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Dolphins, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: Lambo's hip injury will require him to spend at least three weeks on injured reserve, per John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site. To replace Lambo on short notice the Jaguars will sign Brandon Wright ahead of Thursday's contest, according to Oehser. The specific nature of Lambo's hip injury remains unclear, though it looks as though he may have sustained it during practice.

Sep 23, 2020 12:22 PM EST

Pops up on injury report

The Jaguars listed Lambo as a limited participant on Tuesday's injury report with a left hip issue, John Shipley of reports.

Analysis: Jacksonville didn't include Lambo on their initial Week 3 report, so his inclusion on Tuesday's report could indicate an in-practice injury. Unless Jacksonville adds another kicker to the 53-man roster in the next two days, Lambo's availability for Thursday's game against the Dolphins probably won't be in any real jeopardy. Through Jacksonville's first two contests, Lambo has gone 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 6-for-7 on extra-point tries.

Sep 22, 2020 1:52 PM EST

Misses PAT

Lambo made his lone field-goal attempt and converted three of four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 33-30 loss tot he Titans.

Analysis: The 29-year-old hadn't missed any kicks since Week 11 of last season, but he hit the right upright after Jacksonville's touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Lambo has been fairly active to start the season, converting all three field-goal attempts and making six of seven extra-point attempts. The Dolphins present a favorable matchup for Week 3.

Sep 21, 2020 1:03 PM EST

Perfect start to season

Lambo converted both his field-goal attempts and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's win over the Colts.

Analysis: The 29-year-old knocked in kicks from 46 and 50 yards in the season opener to help the Jags grab the victory. Lambo is coming off a fantastic 2019 campaign in which he went 33-for-34 on field-goal attempts and 19-for-20 on extra-point attempts, and he picked up where he left off in the first game of the season.

Sep 14, 2020 4:05 PM EST

Closes season with perfect day

Lambo made all three field-goal attempts and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's 38-20 win against Indianapolis.

Analysis: The 29-year-old put the finishing touches on a fantastic season by converting two field goals from beyond 50 yards, while also adding a chip shot from 20 yards. Lambo will certainly be in the mix for All-Pro honors after going 33-for-34 on field goals and 19-for-20 on extra points this season. He signed a four-year, $15.5 million extension with the Jaguars in February and is primed for another season kicking for the team in 2020.

Dec 30, 2019 5:27 PM EST

Nails both field goals

Lambo made both field-goal attempts and did not attempt an extra point during Sunday's 24-12 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Lambo converted from 27 and 40 yards as the Jaguars once again struggled to move the ball offensively, and he lost out on an extra-point chance since they attempted a two-point conversion after the touchdown. The 29-year-old continued his strong season and is 30-for-31 on field goals and 16 for 17 on extra points, but any fantasy potential is limited by Jacksonville's scuffling offense.

Dec 23, 2019 12:54 PM EST

Perfect again Week 15

Lambo converted both field-goal attempts and all three extra-point attempts during Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Lambo attempted multiple field goals for the first time since Week 12 and multiple extra points since Week 8 as the Jaguars ended the five-game losing streak. The 29-year-old's fantasy production has dipped during the second half of the season, but he's still been one of the more reliable kickers in the league, going 28-for-29 on field goals and 16-for-17 on extra points.

Dec 16, 2019 8:54 PM EST

Makes both kicks

Lambo made his lone field-goal attempt and lone extra-point attempt during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: It was a promising start for the Jaguars as Lambo converted a 26-yard field goal in the first quarter to take an early lead, but the Chargers completely dominated the rest of the contest. Jacksonville was unable to muster much offense despite the quarterback change to rookie Gardner Minshew, leading to another underwhelming outing for Lambo. The 29-year-old is 26-for-27 on field goals and 14-for-15 on extra points this season, but the Jags are averaging only 11.4 points over the last five games. A matchup with a porous Oakland defense in Week 15 presents a nice rebound opportunity, but Lamob may not be a risk worth taking for the fantasy playoffs given Jacksonville recent struggles.
