The Jacksonville Jaguars activated linebacker Daryl Smith from injured reserve on Saturday, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. Smith had been practicing with the Jaguars testing to see if he could return for the final two games of the season after suffering a groin injury in the preseason that wound up needing corrective surgery.
To make room for Daryl Smith on the roster, the Jaguars placed starting safety Dwight Lowery on injured reserve, ending his 2012 season. Lowery had been dealing with a foot issue that had sidelined him for a few games and limited his action. Lowery finished the season playing just nine games after he was re-signed in the offseason. Lowery was hurt again in last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins.
With Lowery out of the lineup, it means that Chris Prosinski will likely once again get the start at safety, so hopefully no one will jump over him.
