JACKSONVILLE – Linebacker Telvin Smith's status remains uncertain.

So does cornerback Jalen Ramsey's.

That was the most prominent news around the Jaguars Friday afternoon, with both defenders listed as questionable on the team's final injury report of the week.

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

Smith, who sustained a concussion against the Arizona Cardinals on November 26, missed last Sunday's victory over the Indianapolis Colts. He practiced full Wednesday and Thursday while remaining in the concussion protocol and did not practice Friday.

"It's just the protocol," Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone said of Smith Friday as the Jaguars (8-4) prepared to play the Seattle Seahawks (8-4) at EverBank Field Sunday at 4:25 p.m. "It's left up to the concussion protocol, and that's all I'm allowed to say on it. 

"He was practicing, but it still goes back to the protocol and what they're going to tell us. We're waiting on that."

Rookie linebacker Blair Brown started in Smith's weak-side linebacker role against the Colts. Middle linebacker Paul Posluszny stayed on the field in Smith's place against the Colts when the Jaguars utilized their nickel defense in passing situations.

Posluszny registered 14 tackles with 1.5 sacks against the Colts.

Ramsey, a second-year veteran, did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. He practiced limited Friday.

The following players were listed without statuses Friday, meaning they are expected to play Sunday: quarterback Blake Bortles (right wrist), running back Leonard Fournette (ankle), offensive tackle Josh Wells (concussion), wide receiver Marqise Lee (foot), cornerback Aaron Colvin (elbow), guard Chris Reed (knee), guard Patrick Omameh (quadriceps), defensive end Calais Campbell (wrist) and Posluszsny (groin).
