NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Jaguars got good news at receiver Sunday morning.
The good news doesn't involve Allen Hurns, who – as expected – will miss Sunday's game at Tennessee, but the Jaguars announced 90 minutes before kickoff that reserve wide receiver Bryan Walters will be active.
Walters, who has played a key role as a reserve this season, had been listed as questionable with a back injury. He was a game-time decision for the Titans game, which will be played at Nissan Stadium at 1 p.m.
With Hurns out with a concussion sustained against San Diego last Sunday, second-year wide receiver Marqise Lee will start for the first time this season. Lee, a second-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, missed six of the first eight games with a hamstring injury and has two receptions for 11 yards in three games since. He has five receptions for 51 yards this season.

Hurns has caught 48 passes for 758 yards and seven touchdowns this season. Walters has 30 receptions for 350 yards and a touchdown.
The Jaguars had ruled Hurns out on Friday along with starting Otto linebacker Dan Skuta. Rookie free-agent Thurston Armbrister is expected to play the Otto in place of Skuta Sunday.
The Jaguars' other five inactives for Sunday: cornerback Nick Marshall, offensive lineman Luke Bowanko, running back Bernard Pierce, wide receiver Rashad Lawrence and defensive end Chris Smith.
Running back Toby Gerhart was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ending his season.
