Gameday inactives: Linder, Lee active


FOXBORO, Mass. – The Jaguars will have starting right guard Brandon Linder Sunday.

They'll have wide receiver Marqise Lee, too, with the two players being declared active an hour and a half before kickoff of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Left tackle Luke Joeckel and safety Johnathan Cyprien were declared inactive.

Joeckel had missed last week's victory over Miami with an ankle injury, practicing limited Wednesday and Thursday before missing practice Friday. Lee had played last Sunday after being out six weeks with a hamstring issue, but was downgraded from probable to questionable Saturday.

Setting the scene as the Jaguars hit the road for the first in 2015 to face-off with the New England Patriots.

Linder sustained a shoulder injury Wednesday and did not practice the rest of the week. Cyprien missed the Miami game with a calf injury and was limited in practice Friday after not working Wednesday or Thursday.

The Jaguars will play the Patriots at Gillette Stadium Sunday at 1 p.m.

Defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (knee) and running back Denard Robinson (knee) also were ruled out shortly before kickoff. They had been listed as doubtful on the Friday injury report.

Tight end Julius Thomas (hand), defensive end Andre Branch (knee) and cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle) were ruled out Friday. Thomas is expected to be reevaluated this week.

Wide receiver Allen Hurns (thigh) and running back Toby Gerhart (abdomen) all were active. They had been listed as probable on the injury report.
