LONDON (AP) – Tua Tagovailoa starts, but the Miami Dolphins are without cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Byron Jones for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Howard had previously been ruled out, but Jones, who has an Achilles tendon injury, was doubtful and had hoped to play. Both were declared inactive approximately 90 minutes before kickoff at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tagovailoa was activated on Saturday and was due to start his first start in a month, returning from broken ribs.

For the Jaguars, defensive lineman Taven Bryan is inactive for the first time in his pro career. Rookie Jay Tufele was expected to take his place in the rotation.

Jags kickers Matthew Wright and Josh Lambo both took the trip, but Wright dresses Sunday. Jacksonville is missing another kick goal this season.

Lambo went 0 for 3 in the first three games. In London in 2018, Lambo kicked four field goals, including a 57-man in Jacksonville’s 24-18 defeat to Philadelphia.

MIAMI DOLPHINS at JACKSONVILLE

Jaguars: K Josh Lambo, LB Myles Jack (back), WR Tyron Johnson, CB Tyson Campbell (toe), OL Rashaad Coward (ankle), DE / OLB Jordan Smith, DE Taven Bryan.

Dolphins: QB Reid Sinnett, WR DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring), WR Preston Williams (groin), CB Byron Jones (Achilles), CB Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin), T Greg Little, TE Adam Shaheen (knee).
