Heading into the fourth quarter, the game appears to have gotten away from the Jaguars, so the team may opt to give the veteran the rest of the night off. In his absence, look for Eli Ankou to see increased reps.
Dareus (back) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game against the Colts.
Dareus was forced to sit out last week's loss to the Bills but was able to return to practice this week and avoid an injury designation. The 28-year-old should reclaim his starting role at defensive tackle.
Dareus (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Dareus missed Jacksonville's Week 12 loss to the Bills due to a back injury and continues to manage his recovery. It remains to be seen whether the 2011 first-round pick will suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Colts, but if Dareus were to miss anymore time, it would fall on Eli Ankou to once again slot into the starting lineup.
Dareus (back) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Bills.
Dareus was able to return to the practice field on a limited basis Friday, but won't suit up after all despite a "questionable" tag. His absence will leave the interior defensive line a bit thin for Jacksonville, as a banged-up Eli Ankou (calf) will need to take on a bigger role.
Dareus (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Dareus played through the triceps and back issues last week against the Steelers, though now he appears to just have the back problem. Eli Ankou (calf) is also listed as questionable which could test the team's depth at defensive tackle, but coach Doug Marrone appears optimistic one or both players will be ready to go, Heilman reports.
