The Jaguars' offense was dealt a big blow early in Thursday's game against the Bengals.

One of Trevor Lawrence's top targets, wide receiver DJ Chark, left the field after suffering a reported ankle fracture on the third play of the night.

Chark had his leg rolled up on at the end of the play. He was placed on a cart and taken to the locker room. The Jaguars have not announced the severity of the injury but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Chark suffered a fracture and would be out indefinitely.

Through three games this season, Chark has seven catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns.

He's two years removed from a 1,000-yard season and a Pro Bowl nod. The Jaguars selected him in the second round (61st overall) out of LSU in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault, the Jags' top two pass catchers this year, will likely pick up Chark's share of the workload Thursday. Long term, Jacksonville could lean on its other active receivers — Jamal Agnew, Tavon Austin or Tyron Johnson. The Jaguars also have five receivers on their practice squad: Jeff Cotton, Josh Hammond, Tim Jones, Devin Smith and Laquon Treadwell.
