Jaguars’ Hyde expected to make debut vs. Eagles in London
Running back Carlos Hyde is active and is expected to make his debut for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday when they face the Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley Stadium in London.
Hyde, acquired via trade with the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 19, averaged 63.7 rushing yards per game in six appearances. He is expected to help strengthen a backfield that has averaged just 98.6 rushing yards and has failed to have a single player run for more than 58 yards in a game this season.
Philadelphia will mark the return of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who has missed the last three games with a calf injury.
The Jaguars ruled out two cornerbacks, starter A.J. Bouye and backup Tyler Patmon, earlier in the week because of calf and neck injuries, respectively, and will turn to undrafted rookie Quenton Meeks to start alongside Jalen Ramsey.
Here are the inactive players for Sunday’s first game:
Eagles: S Corey Graham, CB Sidney Jones, RB Darren Sproles, LT Jordan Mailata, RG Matt Pryor, QB Nate Sudfeld
Jaguars: CB A.J. Bouye, RB Leonard Fournette, TE James O’Shaughnessy, CB D.J. Hayden, CB Tyler Patmon, DT Eli Ankou, DE Dawuane Smoot
