Jonah Jackson

Jonah Jackson

G / Detroit Lions
Jackson has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis:

Jackson missed the Lions' Week 12 matchup against Buffalo with a concussion. However, he practiced in full Friday and has cleared concussion protocol, putting him in line to return to his typical role as Detroit's starting left guard.

Julian Okwara

Julian Okwara

LB / Detroit Lions
Okwara (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis:

Okwara exited the Lions' Week 12 matchup against the Bills with the injury. He failed to practice in any capacity and is in line to miss his second contest of the season. In 10 games on the campaign, Okwara has recorded 17 total tackles with two sacks.

Evan Brown

Evan Brown

C / Detroit Lions
Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis:

Brown couldn't log any practice participation throughout the week, so it's not a surprise to see him ruled out. He's now set for his second consecutive absence. Kayode Awosika is likely to step in at right guard in Brown's absence.

Josh Paschal

Josh Paschal

DE / Detroit Lions
Paschal (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis:

Paschal missed the last two games due to a knee injury and was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday this week. However, he practiced fully Friday and will be able to return to action against Jacksonville.

Jeff Okudah

Jeff Okudah

CB / Detroit Lions
Okudah (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis:

Okudah was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday but was given the green light to play Sunday after he practiced fully Friday. Over his last five appearances, he's logged 29 tackles (26 solo), an interception, a forced fumble and two pass defenses.

Jameson Williams

Jameson Williams

WR / Detroit Lions
Coach Dan Campbell said Friday morning that the Lions hadn't made a decision on Williams (knee) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Analysis:

Campbell said Monday it would be a "tall order" for Williams to play, but the Lions apparently are considering it... or at least giving their opponent that impression. The rookie returned to practice last Monday and is now almost 11 months removed from his ACL tear, so it won't be too surprising if he's activated from injured reserve Friday or Saturday to play in Sunday's game. If not, Williams' next chances to play will be Week 14 against Minnesota and Week 15 at the Jets. He'll likely be a part-time player for at least his first game, competing for perimeter snaps with DJ Chark, Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds.
