NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars got a little scare on Wednesday with both Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue showing up on the injury report and missing practice, however it sounds like they should be good to go on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

If either of or both of those players were to miss the game, it would be a huge blow to the Jaguars defense. Thankfully, both should be good to go and I believe the team will get Marcell Dareus back, who they missed in a big way against the Kansas City Chiefs.

With both pass rushers ready to go, it could help give the team a chance to win against a supposedly re-worked Houston Texans offensive line. On Monday Night Football, even with the addition of Laremy Tunsil the Texans offensive line gave up six sacks and quarterback Deshaun Watson dinged his back, though he says it’s perfectly fine.

The Jaguars should be able to put a lot of pressure on Watson and control the line of scrimmage on Sunday, especially with their two best defensive lineman ready to go.
