PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The Jaguars will be as healthy as can be expected Sunday.
Wide receiver Jaydon Mickens was the only injured player made inactive for the Jaguars Sunday, meaning middle linebacker Paul Posluszny – as expected – will play in the Divisional Playoff against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field at 1:05 p.m.
Mickens, a first-year veteran and the team's punt returner in the last half of the season, sustained a hamstring injury in a Wild Card playoff victory over the Buffalo Bills last Sunday; rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook returned punts in that game in Mickens' absence. Posluszny, the team's starting middle linebacker, sustained a hip injury against Buffalo and missed the second half; he practiced Thursday and Friday, and was expected to play against Pittsburgh as of Friday.
Ivory, the backup running back at times this season, was a healthy inactive. Leonard Fournette, T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant will be active at running back for the Jaguars Sunday.
The Jaguars' other five inactives Sunday: nose tackle Eli Ankou, linebacker Deon King, offensive guard Chris Reed, offensive lineman Josh Walker, offensive lineman William Poehls.
