LONDON (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars promoted rookie receiver Michael Walker to the active roster Saturday, an indication Dede Westbrook won't play against Houston in London.

Westbrook was a limited participant in practice all week and was listed as questionable. He injured a shoulder last week against the New York Jets.

The Jaguars (4-4) had only three other receivers on the roster — DJ Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley — after putting Marqise Lee on injured reserve with a season-ending shoulder injury.

Westbrook has 32 catches for 383 yards and a touchdown this season.

Walker has spent the entire season on Jacksonville's practice squad. If he plays against the Texans (5-3), he would make his NFL debut.
