Jaguars rule out TE Julius Thomas for Sunday’s game at Bills

November 25, 2016

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas won’t play Sunday at Buffalo because of a back injury.

Coach Gus Bradley ruled out Thomas on Friday. It will be the second game Thomas has missed this season and his sixth in two seasons with Jacksonville. The Jaguars (2-8) placed fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) on injured reserve earlier in the week, leaving Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling to handle the workload at Buffalo (5-5).

Bradley says: “We’ll move on, guys will step up.”

The Jaguars also ruled out starting defensive end Jared Odrick (shoulder), linebacker Dan Skuta (back) and defensive tackle Chris Smith (eye).

Running back T.J. Yeldon (ankle), defensive tackle Abry Jones (ankle), cornerback Aaron Colvin (concussion) and receiver Arrelious Benn (concussion) are questionable.
