JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars finally have their starting offensive line intact.

Right tackle Austin Pasztor, who missed the first four games while recovering from a broken right hand, will start Sunday against Pittsburgh. Pasztor could bolster a unit that features two rookies and second-year left tackle Luke Joeckel. Pasztor started 12 games in 2013.

The Jaguars ruled out receiver Cecil Shorts III, who had been unlikely to play because of a hamstring injury. Rookie receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (concussion) and tight end Mickey Shuler (illness) also will be inactive against the Steelers.

Linebacker Paul Posluszny, who missed practice Friday with a knee injury, is expected to play. So is defensive end Andre Branch, who was limited because of a hip flexor injury.
