DeValve underwent surgery to repair a tendon and remove a cyst in one of his toes last week and will be sidelined for 10-to-12 weeks, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old was waived by the Panthers last week with an unspecified non-football injury, which is now known to be his toe issues. DeValve appeared in 12 games for Jacksonville last season and caught 12 passes for 140 yards. He should be ready for game action in September, assuming he latches on with a new team.
The Panthers cut ties with DeValve on Wednesday citing a non-football injury, Alaina Gerzenerg of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Analysis: DeValve's stay with the Panthers was a brief one, parting ways with the team just over two months after the club signed him to a deal. He's set to become a free agent and should be eligible to look for a backup job with another club.
DeValve agreed to terms Friday on a contract with the Panthers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: DeValve spent the 2019 campaign playing a depth role in Jacksonville's tight end room, hauling in 12 passes for 140 yards across 12 games. He'll now compete with Ian Thomas, Chris Manhertz and Temarrick Hemingway for snaps during the 2020 season. DeValve also stands to handle a role on special teams.
DeValve caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Colts.
Analysis: The 26-year-old ended up playing four fewer snaps than No. 3 tight end Ben Koyack -- Nick O'Leary (shoulder) was inactive -- despite delivering a season-high 45 yards Week 16. DeValve posted 12 catches for 140 yards and zero touchdowns in 12 games during his first season in Jacksonville. The role reduction in the season finale may be an indication the Jaguars will allow DeValve to hit free agency in March and pursue other opportunities.
DeValve caught three of six targets for 45 yards during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.
Analysis: DeValve was much more involved in his second game back from the oblique injury, but the season-high six targets still didn't translate into significant yardage. The 26-year-old has 11 receptions for 136 yards in six starts for the Jaguars.
DeValve caught both targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Raiders.
Analysis: DeValve missed the previous four games with an oblique injury, but he returned Week 15 and led the Jaguars' tight ends with 29 offensive snaps. The 26-year-old should work as the team's No. 1 tight end for the closing stretch of the season, assuming he stays healthy.
DeValve (oblique) practiced without limitations Wednesday.
Analysis: DeValve hasn't played since Week 9, but he appears to be good to go moving forward. The 26-year-old tight end generated six receptions for 68 yards over nine games preceding his injury, and he's expected to continue a run-blocking role Sunday against the Raiders.
DeValve (oblique) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Analysis: DeValve was able to return to practice as a limited participant Friday, but he still wasn't expected to play this week. Nick O'Leary should work as Jacksonville's top option at tight end once again Week 14.
The Jaguars list DeValve (oblique) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Analysis: With DeValve's oblique injury still preventing him from practicing, he looks on pace to miss his fourth consecutive contest this weekend. Expect Nick O'Leary to operate as the Jaguars' top pass-catching tight end for the third straight week.
DeValve (oblique) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.
Analysis: The 26-year-old missed the last three games due to the oblique injury, and there's been no indication of when he may be able to retake the field. Nick O'Leary should continue to work as Jacksonville's top tight end while DeValve remains sidelined.
The Jaguars have ruled DeValve (oblique) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Analysis: DeValve failed to practice in any fashion this week, which effectively ended any chance he had of returning from a two-game absence. Nick O'Leary should work as the Jaguars' primary pass-catching tight end in Week 13 after hauling in all four of his targets for 36 yards in his team debut last week against the Titans.
DeValve (oblique) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: DeValve missed the last two games due to the oblique injury, and there's been no indication of when he'll be ready to return. The 26-year-old will need to return to practice within the next couple days to have a chance of playing this weekend.
DeValve (oblique) is scheduled to skip Monday's practice session.
Analysis: DeValve hasn't taken the field since Week 9 versus the Texans and his absence early in the week doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to action in Week 13. Nick O'Leary will likely serve as the team's top tight end again versus the Buccaneers this Sunday if DeValve can't ramp up his activity in the coming days.
DeValve (oblique) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: DeValve will be forced to miss a second straight game due to his oblique injury. With Josh Oliver (back) now on injured reserve, newly-signed tight end Nick O'Leary could be slated for immediate pass-catching work in his Jacksonville debut. Ben Koyack and Charles Jones are also candidates to see increased reserve roles as long as DeValve is unable to go.
DeValve (oblique) isn't slated to practice Thursday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: DeValve received some increased job security atop the depth chart earlier this week when Josh Oliver (back) landed on injured reserve, but the former's own injury looks like it may end up forcing him to miss a second straight game Sunday against the Titans unless he shows notable progress at Friday's practice. If DeValve is indeed sidelined this weekend, the newly signed Nick O'Leary could step in immediately as the Jaguars' top pass-catching tight end.
DeValve (oblique) is not practicing Wednesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: DeValve sat out Week 11's tilt against the Colts due to an oblique injury, and he doesn't appear to be trending in the right direction to suit up versus Tennessee on Sunday. If DeValve is forced to miss any more time, the Jaguars will be forced to rely on Nick O'Leary, Ben Koyack and Charles Jones to hold the fort at tight end.
DeValve (oblique) won't play in Sunday's game against the Colts, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Analysis: DeValve was doubtful to play Sunday after he was a late add to Thursday's injury report. It will be the first game missed for the Princeton product, and in his stead, Josh Oliver will man the starting tight end duties with Ben Koyack the only healthy tight end behind him.
DeValve (oblique) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game at Indianapolis.
Analysis: DeValve was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant and is now likely to miss his first game of the season. Rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver figures to step into the starting role for the Jaguars, while Ben Koyack operates as the No. 2 tight end.
DeValve was limited in Thursday's practice due to an oblique injury.
Analysis: DeValve wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that his oblique issue may be a new development. His participation in Friday's final practice of the week will be worth monitoring. In the event that DeValve were to miss any time, rookie third-round pick Josh Oliver would likely see an increased role on offense.
DeValve caught one of two targets for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Saints.
Analysis: DeValve played a season-high 24 offensive snaps Sunday as Geoff Swaim (concussion) exited the game, leading to his first catch of the season. James O'Shaughnessy (knee) is out for the year and rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) has yet to make his NFL debut, leaving DeValve as the top healthy tight end on the roster.
