The Jacksonville Jaguars landed another defensive player on injured reserve today. Starting cornerback William Middleton has been placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, the team announced on Twitter. The Jaguars were already down starting cornerbacks Rashean Mathis and Derek Cox.

The Jacksonville Jaguars today placed cornerback William Middleton on injured reserve with a knee injury and signed fifth-year cornerback David Jones to a contract. Middleton played in the first 11 games for the Jaguars and made six starts.

David Jones was on the Jaguars last season, starting a few games for Derek Cox when he was benched early in the year. Jones was originally acquired by the Jaguars prior to the 2010 season in the trade with the Cincinnati Bengals for safety Reggie Nelson. Jones was placed on injured reserve prior to the 2011 season, but negotiated a settlement and was released.

Middleton now brings the Jaguars injured reserve count to 20 and they could be potentially starting two undrafted rookie cornerbacks on Monday Night.
