The Jacksonville Jaguars have said they'll be without nine players on Friday night as the team hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers at EverBank Field.

Injured players include running back T.J. Yeldon, wide receivers Marqise Lee and Neal Sterling, defensive linemen Jared Odrick, Chris Clemons, and Roy Miller, cornerback Peyton Thompson, and safety James Sample.

Also of note is head coach Gus Bradley saying that second-year center Luke Bowanko would start over veteran lineman Stefen Wisniewski.

And lastly, Tandon Doss and Bryan Walters will be returning punts.

It'll be interesting to see what backup running backs Corey Grant, Bernard Pierce, and Storm Johnson do with the chance for extra reps, with Yeldon's extra reps... not to mention how Bowanko fares against a very good interior defensive line for the Steelers.
