"Yes, there is a chance he could play Sunday," Bradley said, per the Florida Times-Union. "I just thought I saw him strain more, and I think I see him fighting through that block a little bit and gain confidence in it, so I think it was a big step for him."

The seven-year veteran hurt his knee in last season's finale against the Texans. He led the Jaguars with 8.5 sacks in 2014.
