A couple months ago, it didn't look like the Jacksonville Jaguars will be playing for much in the season. After all, the Tennessee Titans were struggling and didn't have much going in their favor. Fast forward to Week 18, and the stakes are huge.

While the Titans have already been eliminated from playoff contention, the Jags need to win to get in only path to the postseason is winning. If they lose their season will be effectively over.

Jacksonville could've made the playoffs as a wild card if both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos lost in Week 18 and the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans didn't end in a tie. With both the Texans and Pittsburgh winning Saturday, the Jags' only path to the playoffs is beating the Titans. This raises the stakes for the finale considerably.

With their season on the line, the Jags have no choice but to show out in Nashville. With that in mind, here's everything you need to know for the divisional bout.

Jaguars vs. Titans injury report for Week 18

Three Jaguars players got the questionable tag: Trevor Lawrence, Christian Kirk, and Zay Jones. Lawrence sprained his shoulder in Week 16 and missed the game against the Carolina Panthers. He returned to practice this week and is pushing to play.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media says the third-year quarterback isn't at risk of aggravating his injury and his status Sunday will ultimately come down to whether he can tolerate the pain.

Lawrence told the media Wednesday that he's feeling much better but the shoulder is still bothering him when he makes certain moves. He'll test it during warmups and will be a game-time decision. Christian Kirk, for his part, was activated off of Injured Reserve Saturday after a four-week stay with a core injury. Like Lawrence, he'll be a game-time decision.

Last but not least is Zay Jones. Doug Pederson told the local media Wednesday that Jones was getting a bigger workload this week and expected him to suit up in the finale after missing the past two games with a knee injury.

On the Titans side of things, Ryan Tannehill will start what could be his last game in Tennessee. Having been benched earlier in the season, Tannehill will be subbing in for rookie Will Levis, who suffered a foot injury last week. Even though Levis was pushing to play, the Titans wanted to play it safe and went with his veteran counterpart.

The Titans have already ruled out Levis (foot). wide receiver Colton Dowell (knee), defensive back Anthony Kendall (knee), defensive lineman T.K. McLendon (shoulder), and cornerback Caleb Farley (back). On the other hand, right guard Daniel Brunskill (ankle), offensive tackle Jaelyn Duncan (neck), linebacker Caleb Murphy (shoulder), and tight end Kevin Rader (hip) were listed as questionable.
