JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have activated receiver Ace Sanders to the 53-man roster and waived tight end Mickey Shuler.

The move had been expected and means Sanders will play Sunday against Pittsburgh. The fourth-year pro from South Carolina was suspended the first four games for games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Sanders caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a touchdown last season, becoming one of 42 rookies over the last 20 years to catch at least 50 passes in their initial season.

The Jaguars (0-4) need him to play against the Steelers because veteran Cecil Shorts III and rookie Marqise Lee are sidelined with nagging hamstring injuries.
