Five Jacksonville players missed practice Wednesday and two more were limited participants, according to the team's injury report. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot), defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (calf), cornerback Derek Cox (hamstring), defensive end Austen Lane (foot) and center Brad Meester (foot) all sat out. Fullback Greg Jones (thigh) and cornerback Rashean Mathis (groin) practiced but were limited.
Jones-Drew suffered a foot injury on his first carry against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7. He's unlikely to play against the Bills, according to Big Cat Country. Derek Cox was injured in the second quarter of last week's game against Tennessee. His status for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills is unknown. Cox started eight of Jacksonville's first 11 games at corner. Mathis started the second half against the Titans following Cox's injury.
Lane is expected to miss practice again on Thursday, according to the Associated Press. The Jaguars claimed former Philadelphia defensive end Jason Babin on Wednesday to shore up their defensive line.
