JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns is expected to play in the regular-season finale at Tennessee, his first action since Nov. 12.

Hurns missed the last six games because of a high-ankle sprain. He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was removed from the injury report Friday.

The AFC South champion Jaguars (10-5) need Hurns healthy heading into the playoffs. The Jags will be without leading receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) for the second straight game. They also have receivers Allen Robinson, Rashad Greene, Shane Wynn, Arrelious Benn, Larry Pinkard and Jaelen Strong on injured reserve.

Jacksonville will host its first playoff game since the 1999 season next weekend against the Titans, the Los Angeles Chargers, Buffalo or Baltimore.

The Jaguars have little to play for Sunday, but coach Doug Marrone insists he won't rest starters. However, left tackle Cam Robinson (abdominal) and defensive Abry Jones (back) are questionable and probably will be held out.
