JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' inactives held no surprises this week.
Dan Skuta, the team's starting Otto linebacker in nine of 10 games this season, was the only Jaguars starter made inactive 90 minutes before kickoff of the team's game against the San Diego Chargers at EverBank Field Sunday. He had been ruled out Friday.

Rookie free agent Thurston Armbrister is expected to start in place of Skuta, who will be inactive for a second time in three games with a groin injury. Skuta missed the team's victory over Baltimore on November 15 and played two quarters the following Thursday against Tennessee before re-aggravating the injury.
Armbrister started at Otto against Baltimore.
The Jaguars' other inactives Sunday: safety Craig Loston (ankle), running back Bernard Pierce (calf), wide receiver Neal Sterling (illness), running back Joe Banyard, offensive lineman Luke Bowanko and defensive tackle Michael Bennett. Loston, Pierce and Sterling had been listed as doubtful Friday.
