JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory will miss his second straight game Sunday while recovering from a “general medical issue.”

Coach Gus Bradley ruled Ivory out Friday, saying T.J. Yeldon will start at San Diego and Denard Robinson will get some carries.

Bradley also ruled out cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring). Without Amukamara, rookie Jalen Ramsey and Davon House will start, and Dwayne Gratz will play in nickel situations.

A 1,000-yard rusher with the Jets last season, Ivory was hospitalized Sunday and missed the opener against Green Bay. He was released Tuesday and returned to the facility two days later. He declined to reveal specifics about the issue, saying “it was something that needed attention and I went in in pain and I got the problem fixed.”

Ivory is expected to return to practice next week.
