The Jaguars may get a quartet of key contributors back for the team’s matchup against the Colts on Sunday.

Per the Florida Times-Union, defensive end Andre Branch, who missed the team’s first three games with a sprained MCL, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Branch, who the Jaguars are counting on to help with the pass rush, has been out since being injured in Jacksonville’s Aug. 22 preseason game against the New York Giants.

Left tackle Luke Joecke,l who missed the last two games after injuring his knee in the season opener against Carolina, also took part in practice. 

Safety Johnathan Cyprien, who hurt his knee against the Panthers and cornerback Dwayne Gratz, who missed the last two weeks with an ankle injury, returned to practice as well.

The return of all four to the lineup would be a boost to a Jaguars team that heads to Indianapolis coming off last week’s 51-17 loss to New England.
