Jaguars Injury Report: Hurns, Benn ruled out for game against Browns, Fournette questionable

Jaguars offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett discusses Allen Hurns' impact

The Jaguars have ruled out two wide receivers for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Jacksonville will be without Allen Hurns (ankle) and Arrelious Benn (knee) entering the Week 11 matchup on the road.

The team will also need to make game-time decisions on running back Leonard Fournette (ankle), right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee), left guard Patrick Omameh (quad) and linebacker Blair Brown (hamstring), who are all listed as questionable on the injury report.

Hurns (ankle) was injured in the fourth quarter of last week's game. The Jaguars are expected to activate rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook off injured reserve to fill the void.

Benn suffered a knee injury against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday. He was limited in practice on Wednesday but missed the last two sessions.

Fournette rested his injured right ankle Friday. He was a limited participant in practice during the two sessions. The rookie said on Thursday that his ankle felt better than it had during the Week 10 game against the Chargers.

"We're just going to see how everything goes like all of those guys [on the injury report]," Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said, regarding Fournette's status for Sunday. "They just went through a walkthrough and we held him out of practice."

Parnell missed the Week 10 game. He was replaced by swing tackle Josh Wells, who struggled against the Chargers' defensive front.

Wells will get the nod again against the Browns if Parnell can't play. The veteran lineman missed all three practices this week.

Omameh was forced to miss the second half of the game against Los Angeles due to injury. He was replaced by backup lineman Tyler Shatley in the second half. Shatley or Chris Reed could start in place of Omameh against Cleveland.

Like Parnell, Omameh missed all three practice sessions leading up to the game.
