Thomas, Jones-Drew probable

Mike Thomas is expected back in the lineup Saturday.

Thomas, the Jaguars' leading receiver who missed last Thursday's loss to Atlanta with a concussion, practiced full on Friday and was listed as probable entering the Jaguars' game against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, Tenn., Saturday.

As expected, running back Maurice Jones-Drew also was listed as probable.

Jones-Drew rolled an ankle against Atlanta, and practiced on a limited basis throughout the week, but Jaguars interim coach Mel Tucker said Thursday he expects Jones-Drew to start Saturday.

Also for the Jaguars Friday:

*Defensive end Matt Roth (concussion) and wide receiver Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not practice Friday and are listed as out. Leger Douzable is expected to start a fifth consecutive game in Roth's place.

*Safety Dwight Lowery (shoulder) did not participate Friday, nor did right tackle Guy Whimper (knee). Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is expected to make his first NFL start for Lowery, with rookie Cameron Bradfield expected to make his second NFL start for Whimper.

*Tight end Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) practiced limited for a second consecutive day and is listed as questionable. Zach Potter would start if Lewis can't play.

*Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (not injury related), fullback Greg Jones (hamstring) and Thomas practiced full and are listed as probable, and Jones-Drew also is listed as probable.
