Jaguars running back Yeldon won't play against Texans

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without running back T.J. Yeldon against Houston on Sunday.

The team ruled out Yeldon a few hours before kickoff, saying the rookie will miss the game because of a groin injury. Yeldon missed practice all week and had been listed as questionable.

Yeldon has 291 yards rushing, 73 yards receiving and a touchdown this season.

Without him, the Jaguars (1-4) are expected to use Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart in the backfield. Robinson is returning after missing three games with a sprained left knee.
