Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark has had an up-and-down start to the 2020 season. He has gone over 80 receiving yards twice, but he's been held under 30 yards twice as well, and was forced to miss Week 3 due to a chest injury.

Unfortunately, it seems as if those injury issues are cropping back up again. Chark isn't going to practice on Wednesday because of an ankle injury, and that calls his status for Week 6 into question.

Chark was seen limping off the field toward the end of Week 5, so this is definitely a concern. We still don't know anything concrete about his status, though, so it'll be crucial to see whether or not Chark can get in a practice on either Thursday or Friday.

Gardner Minshew's worst game of the season came with Chark out in Wek 3, when he threw 0 touchdowns and 1 interception against the Miami Dolphins. Minshew has combined for 10 touchdowns with 3 interceptions in four games with Chark this year.

Not having Chark for a matchup with a beatable Detroit Lions' defense (No. 30 in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric) would be a huge blow to the Jaguars' offense.
