The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially ruled out receiver DJ Chark for Thursday night's game against the Miami Dolphins due to a chest and back injury.

Chark practiced in a limited capacity on Monday and Tuesday before failing to practice on Wednesday. Head coach Doug Marrone said he was being cautious with his young wideout.

The receiver has been a valuable weapon for Jacksonville, serving as a top option for quarterback Gardner Minshew. Chark leads the team with 109 receiving yards this season.

Keelan Cole is expected to serve as Minshew's top receiver for Thursday night's contest. Cole leads the team in receptions (11) and receiving touchdowns (2).

Rookie receivers Laviska Shenault Jr. and Collin Johnson could also be in store for more targets. Shenault has attracted considerable attention lately, recording 119 yards from scrimmage this season.

The Dolphins ruled out starting cornerback Byron Jones for Thursday night's game as well.
