Both players were officially ruled out Friday when the team released its final injury report. Every other player on the Jaguars’ roster is good to go for the Week 1 opener in Indianapolis.

Johnson didn’t practice at all this week while he works his way back from a hamstring problem that Doug Pederson says could take a little bit longer to go away. Lacy was a limited participant all week, but isn’t quite ready to play.
Neither player was likely to see many snaps Sunday even if they were healthy and ready to play. Johnson is listed as the third-string free safety and Lacy is a second-team defensive end. Both will likely play special teams when they return to action.
As for the Colts, defensive lineman DeForest Buckner was a surprise addition to the report due to a forearm injury. However, Indianapolis said he’s a full go for Sunday against the Jaguars.
