In and out: Flowers to start


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will start their fourth left tackle of the season Sunday.

Ereck Flowers, a left tackle and the No. 9 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, will make his first start for the Jaguars Sunday.

Flowers, acquired by the Jaguars on October 12 following his release from the Giants, will start in place of Josh Walker. Walker will miss Sunday with foot and ankle issues that forced him to miss practice this past week.

Walker started the Jaguars' last four games at left tackle. He replaced backup Josh Wells, who started Weeks 3-5 before sustaining a groin injury. Cam Robinson started Weeks 1 and 2 before sustaining a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament in a Week 2 victory over New England.

Cornerback A.J. Bouye as expected will play after missing the last two games with a calf injury.

The other Jaguars inactives Sunday: nose tackle Eli Ankou (calf), cornerback Quenton Meeks (knee), quarterback Landry Jones, wide receiver Rashad Greene Sr., running back Dave Williams, linebacker Martrell Spaight.
