BUFFALO, N.Y. – T.J. Yeldon will play Sunday; Abry Jones will not.
Yeldon, the Jaguars' running back who was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report, was cleared to play an hour and a half before kickoff of the team's game against the Buffalo Bills. Jones, the team's starting defensive tackle, was ruled inactive at the same time.
Yeldon did not practice this week, but Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said on Friday that the "arrow" was "up" for Yeldon to play. Bradley also on Friday indicated the arrow was up for Jones.
Jones was among seven players ruled inactive Sunday. The others: tight end Julius Thomas (back), defensive end Jared Odrick (shoulder), defensive end Chris Smith (eye), linebacker Dan Skuta (back), quarterback Brandon Allen and offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi.
Thomas, Odrick, Smith and Skuta had been ruled out Friday.
Sen'Derrick Marks will start at defensive tackle alongside Malik Jackson. That means the Jaguars will be without a true nose tackle, with Marks and Jackson both typically playing the team's three-technique tackle spot.
Tyson Alualu will start for the fifth time this season for Odrick at strong-side end.
Ben Koyack will start at tight end for the Jaguars. With Thomas out, Koyack, Neal Sterling and Alex Ellis are the team's healthy players at the position. Ellis was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday.
