Jaguars release Brandon Marshall, Herb Taylor

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released Brandon Marshall and Herb Taylor, activating John Chick and John Parker Wilson to the active roster.

The Jacksonville Jaguars made two moves with their roster on Saturday, activating defensive end John Chick from the PUP list and promoting quarterback John Parker Wilson from the practice squad to the active roster. To make room for the moves, the Jaguars have released fifth-round pick Brandon Marshall and offensive lineman Herb Taylor.

Chick is recovering from a patella injury that ended his 2011 season. He entered the 2012 year on the PUP list and returned to practice last week. Parker Wilson was likely promoted to the roster in case Blaine Gabbert can't make it through the game, which won't leave the Jaguars with just one active quarterback during the game.

Herb Taylor was signed during the Jaguars rash of offensive line injuries making one start, but was quickly out of the lineup after the loss to the Houston Texans.

Marshall was a fifth-round pick of the Jaguars in this past NFL Draft and played sparingly on special teams.
