The Houston Texans have ruled out three players for the game Sunday vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars, including cornerback Kareem Jackson.

Besides Jackson, the Texans have ruled out cornerback Elbert Mack (hamstring) and safety Jawanza Starling (hamstring).

Jackson, who is in his fourth season all with the Texans, has played in nine games this season collecting 35 total tackles, with 33 being solo. He’s also tallied four pass deflections and one fumble recovery. He also has no interceptions.

This will be the second consecutive game he’s missed this season as he’s battling a rib injury. In his last game played, at Arizona, Jackson totaled four tackles.

Losing Jackson for another week isn’t good for the Texans, so watching his replacements will be interesting for at least another week.

Listed as questionable for Houston are inside linebackers Mike Mohamed (hamstring), Darryl Sharpton (foot/toe/back) and Jeff Tarpinian (groin).

Listed as out for the Jaguars are wide receivers Stephen Burton (concussion) and Stephen Williams (achilles).

Questionable for the visiting Jaguars are wide receiver Mike Brown (shoulder), cornerback Will Blackmon (shoulder) and linebacker Geno Hayes (knee).
