Travis Etienne | Left foot injury | Day-to-day | Questionable Week 13
Etienne left the game with a left foot injury and did not return. Doug Pederson told reporters Etienne was not ruled out by medical staff, but the team chose not to risk further injury and held him out of the Jaguars' comeback win.
The injury is to the same foot Etienne suffered his season-ending Lisfranc sprain last year. After the game, Etienne said he would "be straight by next weekend." Monday's examination and imaging tests will define Etienne's timetable. While the early news is reassuring, it's possible the injury is more severe than initially feared.
I'll update with news after Monday's reports.
Monday update: Pederson confirmed Etienne was cleared to return to yesterday's game. While the Jaguars intend to do more tests, Pederson expects Etienne to be eased back into practice during the week. Etienne has a chance to play this week.
Darnell Mooney | Left high ankle sprain | Season-ending injury
Mooney left with a high ankle sprain and did not return. Post-game reports indicate Mooney will need season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments.
Allen Robinson | Navicular bone fracture | Season-ending injury
An overnight tweet from Ian Rapoport reported Robinson -- who was previously listed questionable and considered likely to play through an ankle sprain -- was likely to be inactive with a foot injury. After the game, Sean McVay told reporters Robinson suffered a broken bone in his foot during Friday's practice and would need surgery to stabilize the injury. Robinson's season is over.
Elijah Mitchell | MCL sprain | Out until NFL playoffs
Mitchell is believed to have suffered another MCL sprain during Sunday's game. Post-game reports suggest the injury is not to the same knee Mitchell sprained earlier this season and is not as severe. Mitchell was placed on injured reserve and missed nine weeks after his Week 1 injury. Further tests on Monday will determine whether Mitchell can return this season.
Monday update: Unfortunately, further testing showed a high-grade MCL sprain and Mitchell is again expected to miss 6-8 weeks. His regular season is over.

Ja'Marr Chase | Hip avulsion fracture / Labral injury | Day-to-day | Probable Week 13
Chase returned to practice last week and impressed teammates. A Week 12 return was never likely -- Chase was less than two weeks from earning clearance to bear weight without crutches and one week of reconditioning was never enough to return to live game action. Another strong week of practice will have Chase ready to return in Week 13. Watch for clues on whether the Bengals will allow him a full snap count immediately.
