Jaguars Claim WR Brian Robiskie, Place Mike Sims-Walker on IR

The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed wide receiver Brian Robiskie off of waivers. Robiskie, a second round draft pick in the 2009 NFL draft, was released by the Cleveland Browns yesterday in a surprising move. Robiskie was hyped pre-draft as the most "NFL ready" wide receiver in the draft, but could never really get it going on the Browns roster who was desperate for a wide receiver to step up.

In the more surprising news however, the Jaguars also announced the have placed veteran wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker on injured reserve with a knee injury. Sims-Walker was re-signed two weeks ago and played in the last two games. He dominated the wide receiver snaps in the first week against the Baltimore Ravens, but only caught one pass. Sims-Walker had a case of the flu last week and was receiving IV's after practice. He played against Houston, but head coach Jack Del Rio noted he didn't have a lot of energy and was clearly effected. There has not been word yet on what the knee injury for Sims-Walker is, however.
