In what has become all too familiar early week activity for the Jaguars, they announced the movement of two more players to the injured reserve. Cornerback Ashton Youboty appeared to hurt his arm or shoulder on Saturday against the Titans, but the Jaguars have placed him on injured reserve with an apparent hamstring injury. Defensive end Matt Roth, who has missed several weeks due to a concussion, also joins Youboty and 23 others on the injured reserve with the same head injury that has held him out.

To fill on the roster, the Jaguars activated 2nd year offensive tackle Daniel Baldridge, who has spent nearly all of his NFL career on the Jacksonville practice squad, to the active roster.
The players represent the 30th and 31st players to go to the injured reserve and Youboty is the 12th defensive back to be moved to the list. The Jaguars currently have a full roster of 80 players with 52 on the active roster, three on the practice squad and 25 on the injured reserve so they will have to activate another player from the practice squad or sign a free agent and release a player from the IR or practice squad.
