The Jaguars announced in a pair of press releases today the placement of TE Zach Miller, DE Austen Lane and CB Rod Issac to the injured reserve. The movement of Miller and Lane to the I.R. were reported earlier in the day, while the Issac injury was announced following an MRI on his hamstring, which he hurt in the week six game against the Steelers.
To fill the roster spots, the Jaguars have only formally announced the signing of CB T.J. Heath to the active roster. They have also reportedly signed WR Mike Sims-Walker and now it is being reported by Brian McIntyre that the Jaguars have signed TE Martin Rucker from the Cowboys practice squad to fill the final spot.
Rucker is a 4th year pro who has seen action in 11 career games after spending time with the Browns, Eagles and Cowboys. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2008 draft by the Browns out of the University of Missouri.
The Jaguars also announced the release of Jamar Newsome from the practice squad, leaving one spot that has yet to be filled.
