Jaguars activate DE John Chick from the practice squad

With the release of quarterback David Garrard yesterday, the Jacksonville Jaguars roster sat at 52 players. Today, the team announced that they have activated defensive end John Chick from the practice squad to take Garrard's roster spot. Chick, who chose to sign on the Jaguars practice squad over the Colts, did so because he felt he had a better chance of making the active roster. Looks like he was right.

Chick spent the 2010 season on the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad and was waived in final cuts. The 28-year old played three seasons (2007-09) in the Canadian Football League for the Saskatchewan RoughRiders where he had 19 sacks and 6 forced fumbles. He was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2009. He was originally signed as a rookie free agent by Houston in 2006.

To replace Chick on the practice squad, the Jaguars have signed defensive end Tom McCarthy. McCarthy spent the preseason with the Atlanta Falcons after signing as a rookie free agent from Yale. His career totals (at Yale) included 93 tackles, 11 sacks and 21 tackles for loss.
