Coach Doug Marrone ruled Ngakoue out Friday because of a hamstring injury suffered in the opener.
Marrone says: ''It's a shame. I spoke to him and he really wants to play. He's like, 'I want to play. I don't really care. I want to get out there.''' Marrone adds that ''you don't really see that a lot, but that's how he's been.''
Ngakoue is third in franchise history with 29+ sacks.
Left tackle Cam Robinson has been cleared to play, but Marrone will hold him out as a precaution. Robinson hyperextended his right knee a few days before the opener. Second-year pro Will Richardson will make his second consecutive start at left tackle.
