Injuries: Jalen Ramsey (knee) misses Jags practice

The Jacksonville Jaguars kick off preparations for Week 13's game against the Colts a little banged up in the defensive secondary.

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury.

It is unclear when Ramsey, who was limited in practice last week with a groin injury, hurt his knee when considering he played on all 58 defensive snaps during Week 12's 24-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Ramsey's status for Sunday's game should become clearer as the week progresses, but coach Doug Marrone does not seem optimistic the cornerback will be ready to face Indianapolis, saying there's a "high-level of concern" surrounding his availability.

The Jaguars also announced wide receiver DJ Chark (quadriceps) and safety Tashaun Gipson (ankle) are not expected to practice Wednesday.

Here are other injuries we are monitoring Wednesday:

  1. Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro safety Eric Berry (heel) returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since Aug. 11. Berry officially was listed as a limited participant, while wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) did not practice.
  1. Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (right shoulder) officially was a limited participant at practice. Bears coach Matt Nagy told reporters the team will take it day by day with Trubisky. Backup QB Chase Daniel, who led the Bears to a win over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, will start in Trubisky's place again if need be.
  1. Cincinnati Bengals star wideout A.J. Green (toe) says he will be back this Sunday against the Denver Broncos after missing three games. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (hip) and tackle Cordy Glenn (back) did not practice on Wednesday.
  1. Aqib Talib was at Rams practice Wednesday as he continues his path back from early season ankle surgery.
  1. Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich announced tight end Jack Doyle has been released from the hospital on Wednesday following a procedure on his kidney. Doyle was placed on injured reserve on Monday after suffering the injury in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The Colts added tight end Clive Walford from free agency to add depth in light of Doyle's season ending injury.

In other Colts injury news, running back Marlon Mack remains in the concussion protocol. Also missing practice on Wednesday were wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (groin), tight end Eric Ebron (back), and center Ryan Kelly (knee).

  1. The Miami Dolphins announced they have placed wide receiver Jakeem Grant (achilles) on injured reserve, and promoted WR Isaiah Ford to the active roster.
  1. Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says veteran tackle David Bakhtiari (knee/ankle) will not practice on Wednesday, and also announced the entire team will have a lighter practice day with so many players dealing with injuries. Players that did not practice at all include defensive tackle Mike Daniels (foot), tight end Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb), and cornerback Bashaud Breeland (groin). Wide receiver Trevor Davis has already been ruled out for Sunday's home game against the Arizona Cardinals.
  1. Detroit Lions cornerback and return man Jamal Agnew (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday after being activated from injured reserve. Agnew suffered a partially torn ligament in his left knee in Week 5, but avoided surgery to make a full recovery.
