Jaguars list running back Yeldon as doubtful vs Falcons

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have listed running back T.J. Yeldon as doubtful to play against Atlanta on Sunday.

Yeldon sprained a ligament in his left knee last week against Indianapolis and missed the last three days of practice. But the Jaguars (5-8) stopped short of ruling him out Friday against the Falcons (6-7).

Coach Gus Bradley said linebacker Paul Posluszny will play. Posluszny broke his right hand two weeks ago against Tennessee and sat out against Indianapolis following surgery. He will wear a protective cast and have it heavily wrapped.

Bradley says, ''We're very pleased with how far Posluszny has come along this week. He really didn't miss a beat.''

One new addition to the injury report was safety Sergio Brown, who is questionable with a thumb injury.
