Jaguars WR DJ Chark out for Thursday night game vs. Dolphins

The Jacksonville Jaguars confirmed that wide receiver DJ Chark won't play versus the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night due to the chest/back injury he sustained during last Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Tennessee Titans. 

Chark, 24, suffered the setback while going up for a 45-yard reception in the Tennessee game, per Michael DiRocco of ESPN. DiRocco added that 26-year-old Dede Westbrook will likely make his season debut after sitting as a healthy scratch the previous two weeks. 

Chark tallied seven catches for a team-best 109 receiving yards with one touchdown in Jacksonville's first two games of the campaign.

Jacksonville is also going with undrafted placekicker Brandon Wright on Thursday evening after first-choice kicker Josh Lambo went on injured reserve with a left hip problem.

Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
