JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars will have some decisions to make this weekend before playing the Los Angeles Chargers at EverBank Field Sunday.

The team listed right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee), right guard A.J. Cann (triceps), left guard Patrick Omameh (knee) and wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) as questionable heading into the Week 10 matchup.

All three offensive linemen were listed as limited participants in practice throughout the week.

If Parnell isn't able to play, he will probably be replaced by veteran swing tackle Josh Wells. If Omameh can't play, he will most likely be replaced by backup guard Chris Reed.

The Jaguars replaced Cann with starting center Brandon Linder last week. Backup center Tyler Shatley stayed at the starting spot against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jacksonville could take that approach again if Cann isn't able to perform. However, the starting right guard believes he will play Sunday.

"I think I should be fine, I should be ready to go," Cann said after practice Friday. "I was able to get practice in today and I was able to punch and it felt good, so I think this week I should be fine."

Lee was listed as questionable with the same injury last week but still played against the Bengals. If he is unable to make it this week, rookie Keelan Cole will see more opportunities.

The Jaguars will also need to determine whether or not they'll activate wide receiver Dede Westbrook and/or safety Calvin Pryor off injured reserve this week. 

The team will have until Saturday at 4 p.m. EST to make a decision. The Jaguars would need to make corresponding roster moves to open up space for one or both of the players before activating them.

Westbrook is eligible to return until Nov. 21. Pryor is eligible to return no later than Nov. 23.
