The Jaguars listed running back Chris Ivory as questionable on Friday because of a calf injury, but coach Gus Bradley said that he expected the offseason acquisition to be in the lineup.

Ivory is inactive against the Packers on Sunday, although it doesn’t appear the calf injury is the reason for his absence from the lineup.

The Jaguars announced on Sunday that Ivory has been admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning. They say it is for a “general medical issue” without any further specifics about what caused Ivory to seek medical attention.

His absence will leave T.J. Yeldon alone at the top of the depth chart at tailback against Green Bay. The two players are expected to split time this season. Denard Robinson and Corey Grant are the other running backs on Jacksonville’s 53-man roster.

    They should have never said anything and let the ‘calf injury’ say it all.

    Now everyone is wondering “What is going on with Ivory that they aren’t saying – and if they aren’t saying, it must be really bad – because they would say something if it was a common appendicitis or something.”

    Jaguar Fans, welcome to what Jet Fans already know

    Ivory is a good back–when he is healthy.

    how often is he healthy? Not very often. Although this “general medical issue” is new. I hope he is ok.
