Gameday inactives: Yeldon, Hurns, Skuta active


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will have their starting running back Thursday, as well as their entire group of wide receivers.

They'll have their starting Otto linebacker, too.

T.J. Yeldon, the Jaguars' starting running back, will play against the Tennessee Titans Thursday night after being declared active 90 minutes before kickoff. Starting Otto linebacker Dan Skuta also was declared active for the Jaguars at that time.

The Jaguars will play host to the Tennessee Titans at EverBank Field Thursday at 8:25 p.m.

As expected, wide receiver Allen Hurns will be active despite missing practice Monday with a thigh/core injury. He also has been dealing with a foot injury.

Hurns being active means the Jaguars will have all five of their front-line receivers healthy. Rookie wide receiver Rashad Greene will be active after being moved off of the injured reserve-designated to return list Wednesday, with Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Bryan Walters also active.

Walters, who sustained a concussion Sunday in a victory over the Baltimore Ravens, has been fully cleared from NFL's concussion protocol. The Jaguars will have six receivers active Thursday including rookie Neal Sterling.

Yeldon did not practice Monday or Tuesday of this week after sustaining a foot injury in a victory over the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday. Skuta missed the Ravens game with a groin injury.

The Jaguars' inactives Thursday running back Joe Banyard, running back Bernard Pierce, cornerback Nick Marshall, tight end Nic Jacobs, defensive tackle Michael Bennett, defensive end Chris Smith and offensive lineman Luke Bowanko.

Also, Tyson Alualu will start at the three-technique defensive tackle in place of Sen'Derrick Marks, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a torn triceps. Alualu started there the first seven games of the season while Marks returned from offseason reconstructive knee surgery.
