Injury roundup: Jaguars' Ivory, Amukamara ruled out

Print

If the winless Jaguars plan to even their record against the Chargers on Sunday, they'll need to do so without a pair of key players.

Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley announced Friday that both running back Chris Ivory and cornerback Prince Amukamara have been ruled out for Week 2.

Ivory returned to practice on Thursday after being hospitalized with what he called an "emergency medical condition." The undisclosed illness kept the hard-charging back out of the lineup for Jacksonville's season-opening loss to the Packers.

Ivory's absence will be felt on the ground, especially in the red zone. Second-year back T.J. Yeldon will operate as the clear starter against San Diego, with Denard Robinson serving as the team's change-of-pace option.

Amukamara missed practice all week with a hamstring injury. The former Giants cover man saw time in nickel and dime packages in Week 1 alongside Davon House and fascinating first-rounder Jalen Ramsey. Look for Dwayne Gratz and Josh Johnson to see increased snaps against the Bolts with Amukamara on the mend.

Bradley also noted that offensive tackle Jermey Parnell (groin) and Dante Fowler Jr. (illness) are likely to suit up for a game the Jaguars desperately need to keep from slipping to 0-2 on the year.

Other injuries we're tracking on this wild and mysterious Friday in the NFL Media news compound:

1. The Patriots won't have suspended quarterback Tom Brady on Sunday and they aren't likely to have Dont'a Hightower, either. The linebacker missed his third straight practice Friday with a knee injury, per NFL Network's Courtney Fallon, and is doubtful for the Dolphins game.

Cornerback Malcolm Butler (ankle), offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (knee), offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper (foot), defensive end Trey Flowers (shoulder), offensive lineman Shaq Mason (hand), linebacker Shea McClellin (shoulder), offensive lineman Nate Solder (hamstring) and receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder) are all listed as questionable as well.
