Middle linebacker Paul Worrilow suffered a setback in his recovery from the knee injury that has kept him on the injury report this week. Head coach Dan Quinn told the media following Friday's practice that Worrilow would not be able to take the field against the Jaguars on Sunday, so he has been ruled out for Week 15. Nathan Stupar will start in Worrilow's place, with Phillip Wheeler set to also get some playing time at inside linebacker, likely on obvious passing downs.

Right guard Chris Chester (shoulder), return specialist Devin Hester (toe), nose tackle Paul Soliai (calf), tight end Jacob Tamme (back), and cornerback Desmond Trufant (calf) are all probable for Sunday's game in Jacksonville.

Dan Quinn said after Friday's practice that outside linebacker Tyler Starr, who was promoted to the active roster after backup center James Stone was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL, will be active for Sunday's game.
