NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Marqise Lee could get more looks at returner Thursday.
Rashad Greene, the Jaguars' punt returner when healthy since the beginning of the 2015 season, was declared inactive by the team an hour and a half before kickoff of the team's game against the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Field Thursday night.
Corey Grant, the team's kickoff returner in the first four games of the regular season, was declared inactive for a third consecutive game. Lee has returned kickoffs the past two weeks and he and veteran returned punts two weeks ago in Greene's absence.
Greene fumbled a punt return that led to a field goal in a loss to the Oakland Raiders last week. He also fielded a punt near the Jaguars' end zone that resulted in poor field position.
Defensive end Jared Odrick, who was listed as questionable on the injury report this week with a quad injury, also was deactivated on Thursday while tight end Julius Thomas – listed as questionable with an ankle injury – will be active. Veteran Tyson Alualu will start in Odrick's place and Abry Jones will start at nose tackle.
Other Jaguars inactives Thursday: quarterback Brandon Allen, tight end Neal Sterling, cornerback Josh Johnson and offensive lineman Bryce Harris.
