The Jaguars could be without three key players in their Sunday showdown with the Dolphins.
Leading WR Mike Sims-Walker (calf) missed a second consecutive practice Friday and is listed as doubtful, as are CB Rashean Mathis (groin) and DT John Henderson (shoulder). Sims-Walker has been enjoying a breakout season with team-highs in receptions (52), yards (752) and receiving touchdowns (6).
Mathis hasn’t played since Week 10 because of the injury and was limited in practice all week. Henderson sat out Wednesday, fully practiced Thursday and was limited Friday.
The Dolphins are in much better shape injury-wise for the game, which has implications in the AFC wild-card race. Veteran LBs Jason Taylor (shoulder) and Joey Porter (knee) are probable after fully practicing Friday, and CB Nathan Jones (hamstring), who was limited the last two days, is questionable. Center Jake Grove (ankle) is doubtful, but he hasn’t played since Week 11.
