Flowers (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sundays game against the Steelers.
Flowers suffered the knee injury last Sunday against the Colts but was able to practice fully Friday to avoid an injury tag. The 25-year-old is primed to step into the starting spot at left tackle with Josh Walker (ankle/foot) doubtful for Sunday.
Flowers exited Sunday's tilt against the Colts during the second half. With center Brandon Linder (knee) also questionable to return, the Jaguars could remain without two starting offensive lineman for the remainder of the Week 10 contest.
Flowers cleared waivers earlier this week after being waived by the Giants. The 2015 first-round pick could find himself in a starting role relatively soon with starting left tackle Josh Wells (groin) placed on injured reserve, but Josh Walker is likely to fill in while Flowers gets his bearings with his new team.
Flowers cleared waivers on Wednesday making him a free agent, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
Flowers reportedly has several teams expressing interest in his services. The embattled lineman is expected to make trips to a few suitors before finding a new home. From the looks of it, Flowers will be suiting up for a new team in 2018, but which team remains to be seen.
The Giants waived Flowers on Tuesday, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.
Though the Giants attempted to trade Flowers, the team found no suitors and were forced to waive their former first-round pick on Tuesday. Flowers was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2015 draft, but he repeatedly struggled in pass protection. He ultimately lost his starting job to Chad Wheeler this season, and played just 12 snaps over his final three games. It remains to be seen if the Giants are interested in signing him to their practice squad if he makes it through waivers.
