With kickoff approaching in Jacksonville, the important “inactive” lists are out for the Jaguars and the Bills and there are a number of key injured player status updates.

First, after some concern that he had been listed as “questionable” with a right ankle injury suffered last Sunday, Bills RB LeSean McCoy is officially active and will see playing time early. As we wrote yesterday, it’s a question mark as to how effective he can be an how long he can play?

McCoy is the best weapon for Buffalo’s offense, accounting for over 1,500 yards from scrimmage this season, including 1,138 on the ground.

For the Jaguars, WR Marqise Lee, who has battled a high ankle sprain suffered three weeks ago and was limited in practice this week is active this afternoon. Lee, who is a vertical speedster, is a welcomed sight for QB Blake Bortles, but like McCoy, it remains to be seen how effective he can be and for how long.

The banged up Jacksonville receiving core welcomed back veteran Allen Hurns in the finale’ against the Titans last Sunday. He had been out for over a month with an ankle injury of his own. He will be counted on along with young wideouts Keelan Cole and Jaydon Mickens.

Also, veteran Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis, who is the only remaining Jag to have played in their last two playoff games in 2007, is active after being questionable to play this week.

The Jaguars also announced that backup running back T.J. Yeldon is inactive due to illness, which means veteran Chris Ivory will be the exclusive back up to Leonard Fournette.

Fournette battled a quad injury over the past couple of weeks, but is a full go for this afternoon. He will now be counted on even more to carry the work load on the ground for the Jacksonville offense.
