In and out: Westbrook active


JACKSONVILLE – Dede Westbrook will play as expected.

Westbrook, the Jaguars' wide receiver who officially was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report with a shoulder injury, will play against the New York Jets Sunday at TIAA Bank Field. The third-year veteran was not among seven Jaguars players officially ruled inactive 90 minutes before kickoff.

Head Coach Doug Marrone had said Friday he expected Westbrook to play despite not practicing this past week. Westbrook he has played through the issue for much of the last month.

Jaguars players ruled inactive Sunday:

Wide receiver C.J. Board, defensive tackle Dontavius Russell, running back Devine Ozigbo, linebacker Leon Jacobs (hamstring), linebacker Najee Goode (foot), linebacker Quincy Williams (hamstring) and offensive linemen Brandon Thomas.

Joe Giles-Harris will start for Jacobs at strong-side linebacker after signing from the practice squad this past week, and Austin Calitro will start for Goode/Williams at weakside linebacker.

Taven Bryan will start at defensive tackle for Marcell Dareus, who was placed on injured reserve with a core-muscle injury this past week.
