Titans activate WR Julio Jones (hamstring) from injured reserve, will play vs. Jaguars

Julio Jones is healed and raring to go for Tennessee's stretch run.

The Titans wideout will play Sunday versus the Jaguars once being activated from injured reserve on Saturday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per a source. The team has since announced the news of Jones' activation from IR.

Jones (hamstring) returned to the practice field on Friday after being designated for his return. The veteran wideout was placed on IR after aggravating a hamstring injury during practice on Nov. 13. Jones missed the minimum total of three games during his latest stint on IR.

Appearing in only six games this season, Jones' first year with the Titans has been plagued with injuries. Jones has 21 receptions for 336 yards, averaging 16.0 yards per reception, but has failed to reach the end zone this season.

Tennessee is coming off its bye and carries a two-game skid heading into Week 14's meeting with Jacksonville. Currently sitting as the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoff picture, the Titans (8-4) have reinforcements for the home stretch with AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts (7-6) breathing down their neck.
