Johnathan Cyprien: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Cyprien suffered a concussion in Jacksonville's opener and subsequently missed the Week 2 outing against the Redskins. Josh Evans impressed as the starter against Washington, recording a team-high 14 tackles (eight solo). Nonetheless, the Jaguars' secondary will certainly welcome Cyprien back whenever he clears the league's concussion protocol.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Cyprien suffered a concussion during Sunday's season opening loss to the Eagles and without him on the field, the Jaguars' secondary was exposed in deep coverage during the second half. Now three days later, the emerging second-year safety still hasn't been cleared to return to practice. As such, Cyprien will continue to follow the league's concussion protocol and Jacksonville hopes to determine his status for Week 2 against the Redskins by Friday.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 33rd overall pick from the 2013 draft, Cyprien is expected to play the Kam Chancellor enforcer role for Jacksonville as new head coach Gus Bradley attempts to replicate the defense he built in Seattle. While Chancellor is a linebacker-safety hybrid, Cyprien is better rounded as a player with both free- and strong-safety skills, meaning he should be more active in coverage than Chancellor. None of that is meant to downplay Cyprien's contributions as a tackler, though, because he posted 365 tackles in 50 career college games.
