He and Pinkard will now join Marqise Lee, Keelan Cole and Jaydon Mickens on the depth chart as the Jaguars head into FirstEnergy Stadium to take on the Cleveland Browns.

The Jacksonville Jaguars made the most of a Cleveland Browns turnover, and converted a DeShone Kizer interception into a 10-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Blake Bortles to tight end Marcedes Lewis.

Smith's recovery came after a sack/fumble by defensive end Yannick Ngakoue and made it, 19-7 Jaguars, with 1:14 remaining. Lambo missed a 41-yard field goal just before halftime, at which time the Jaguars led just 10-7 despite outgaining Cleveland, 206-68.

The Jaguars, who have terrorized opposing quarterbacks this season, continued that trend in Cleveland. Coach Hue Jackson confirmed the prognosis in his postgame press conference. Leonard Fournette, who has been slowed by a sore ankle, finished with 111 yards on 28 carries.

On first-and-10 from his own 45-yard line after a shanked punt from Jacksonville, Kizer dropped back to pass over the middle of the field to wide receiver Rashard Higgins. Bortles sold the play with a play-action fake to help Lewis break wide open on the play.

Browns DE Emmanuel Ogbah was forced from Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a foot injury, and will not return. Gordon was recently re-instated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after being suspended for the past two seasons.
