JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Only two players are listed as doubtful for the Jaguars on Sunday: Ryan Davis and TJ Yeldon.  Perhaps it’s a bit not trying to show their hand but it really is doubtful that Yeldon will play on Sunday.  He’d like to, although he said on Wednesday that he was hoping to play against New Orleans next week while walking with a crutch and a walking boot in the locker room.  Head Coach Gus Bradley has said all week that Yeldon has made great progress every day and wouldn’t rule him out of the game against the Falcons. 

After a full week of practice and tweaking the protection on his broken hand, Paul Posluszny is officially listed as probable this week.  “Poz” said if he’s hindered in any way he won’t play but is convinced the way they’ve padded and protected his hand won’t slow him down at the middle linebacker position.  Although Jordan Tripp was effective, Posluszny knows the defense, can make the calls and adjustments at the line and makes the defense better. 

Sergio Brown and Dwayne Gratz are listed as questionable with Nic Jacobs and Bryan Walters. The Jaguars can be cautious with Walters and his back problem with the rest of the receiving corps healthy and ready to play after practicing all week.
