JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' injury situation got a bit more uncertain Friday.

This time, the uncertainty involves a prominent defensive player.

Jalen Ramsey, a second-year cornerback who never has missed a game in two NFL seasons, was added to the Jaguars' final injury report of the week Friday with a hand injury. Ramsey was listed as questionable for the Jaguars' game at Arizona Sunday at 4:25 p.m.

Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone said Ramsey jammed his hand defending a pass Friday. Ramsey told reporters he wouldn't play Sunday, but the team has until 90 minutes before kickoff to determine whether to activate a player.

Marrone was asked if Ramsey would play through the injury.

"I can't comment on that," Marrone said. "I don't know."

The Jaguars have been notably healthy this season on defense, with none of their 11 starters yet missing a game because of injury.

The Jaguars have dealt with injuries on offense much of the season, and that continues to be the case entering the weekend with two starting offensive linemen – right tackle Jermey Parnell and left guard Patrick Omameh – listed as questionable after being listed as limited in practice the last two days.

Wide receiver Allen Hurns was ruled out for a second consecutive game with an ankle injury.

Parnell has missed the last two weeks with his knee issue, and Omameh missed the Jaguars' victory over Cleveland last week. Josh Wells has started in place of Parnell the last two games, and Chris Reed started at left guard in Cleveland Sunday.

"Those guys are doing a good job up front with their communication and the way they've been playing," Marrone said. "You see around the league quite a bit, shuffling these lines you can get yourself in trouble. I think it's a combination of everything: those guys really doing a good job and the coaches doing a good job of putting them in the right position and then having the ability to go out there and play together."

The Jaguars got good news regarding one injury with Friday with kicker Josh Lambo upgraded to full after being listed as limited with a hip injury Wednesday and Thursday. The Jaguars had signed kicker Mike Meyer to the practice squad after working him out Wednesday.

"We've had it backed up – snappers, kickers, specialists," Marrone said. "We do a good job there. We know exactly what we're going to do, so if we do have injuries during games we're prepared for it. It may not be the best situation, but it's something you have to deal with."

Reserve linebacker Donald Payne (hamstring) also was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report, with the following players listed on the report and expected to play:

Lambo, quarterback Blake Bortles (right wrist), linebacker Blair Brown (hamstring), wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee), running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) and safety Tashaun Gipson (knee).
