JACKSONVILLE, FLA. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without defensive starters Derek Cox and Aaron Kampman against the New York Jets and could be without tight end Marcedes Lewis and receiver Jason Hill.

Cox (chest) and Kampman (knee) were ruled out Friday. Lewis (calf) and Hill (hip) were listed as doubtful on the team’s injury report.

Cox, Lewis and Hill were injured in Sunday’s season opener. Cox missed practice all week. So did Kampman, who is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery.

Lewis and Hill returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday, but coach Jack Del Rio isn’t counting on either of them to play against the Jets.

If they can’t go, tight end Zach Miller and rookie receiver Cecil Shorts likely would have expanded roles.
