Aaron Wilson of National Football Post reports on Twitter that the Jaguars have signed cornerback Walter McFadden to their practice squad. McFadden was a 5th round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 draft, but never made it on to the active roster during the 2010 season. He was released by the Raiders prior to the 2011 season.
In addition to the reported signing of McFadden, cornerback T.J. Heath revealed on his Twitter that he has been activated to the 53 man roster of the Jaguars. Heath is a rookie that signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Jacksonville State. He has spent the entire 2011 season thus far on the Jacksonville practice squad.
The promotion of Heath to the active roster means that the Jaguars will have to make room for him by releasing a player or sending a player to the injured reserve.
