HOUSTON, Texas – Chris Ivory and Brandon Linder will play Sunday.
Ivory and Linder, both of whom practiced limited this week before being removed from the injury report on Friday, were declared active for the Jaguars an hour and a half before the team's game against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, Sunday at 1 p.m.
Ivory, a running back who has shared carries with T.J. Yeldon much of the season, missed the past two games with a hamstring injury. Linder, the Jaguars' starting center, missed last Sunday's loss to Minnesota with an ankle injury.
Seven players were ruled inactive for the Jaguars Sunday. They were:
Wide receiver Allen Hurns (hamstring), running back Denard Robinson (ankle), offensive guard Chris Reed (toe), center Luke Bowanko, defensive end Chris Smith, quarterback Brandon Allen and cornerback Josh Johnson.
Marqise Lee likely will start a third consecutive game for Hurns with second-year veteran Jeremiah Poutasi expected to start for Reed.
