Jaguars could be without 2 starts Sunday vs. the Dolphins

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars left tackle Luke Joeckel and strong safety Johnathan Cyprien both missed practice on Friday.

Joeckel (ankle injury) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins and Cyprien (calf) is doubtful.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says Joeckel has continued to improve each day this week and may be a game-time decision.

Others on Friday's injury report as questionable or worse were linebacker Thurston Armbrister (back, questionable) and running back Toby Gerhart (abdomen, doubtful).

Four players were ruled out for Sunday's game: defensive end Andre Branch (knee), defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (knee), tight end Julius Thomas (hand) and cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle).

Wide receiver Marqise Lee was listed as probable and is likely to see his first game-action this season. Lee suffered a hamstring injury in early August.
