JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman has been cleared to play, but coach Jack Del Rio says he likely will hold him out until next week.

Del Rio says Kampman, who missed the first four games while recovering from a knee injury, would play against Cincinnati "if we have someone who slips on a banana peels between now and Sunday." If not, then Kampman will make his season debut next week at Pittsburgh.

The Jaguars will be without cornerback Derek Cox (groin) and special teams ace Montell Owens (knee). Receiver Kassim Osgood (hamstring), tight end Zach Miller (shoulder) and offensive lineman Jason Spitz (quadriceps) are doubtful.

Kampman and safety Courtney Greene (neck) are questionable. Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (knee) and left tackle Eugene Monroe (shoulder) are probable.
