in what has become a familiar action of the 2011 season for the Jaguars, the team announced two more players to the injured reserve. Rookie defensive backs Chris Prosinski and T.J. Heath are done for the season and represent the 26th and 27th players to move to the list. Five players have been waived/injured from the IR this season, so the list is currently at 22 players, forcing the Jaguars to only have five players on their practice squad to keep under the 80 player NFL roster limit.
Prosinski participated in all 13 games for the Jaguars this season, getting his first career start against the Buccaneers on Sunday in the place of injured safety Dwight Lowery. A 4th round pick by the Jaguars, Prosinski's season will end with a thumb injury.
Heath spent the early part of the season on the Jaguars practice squad before getting promoted to the active roster on Oct. 17. He played in five games, primarily on special teams, before a shoulder injury sidelined him for the last two games.
To fill their spots on the active roster the Jaguars announced the signings of CB Darcel McBath and CB Robert McClain. The team also released OL George Bussey and CB Talmadge Jackson from the practice squad to help make room to sign K Brandon Coutu to the practice squad. It's unclear yet whether or not Josh Scobee will be ready to play in Thursday's game against the Falcons.
