The Jacksonville Jaguars made some tweaks to their practice squad on Tuesday, waiving defensive end Chris McCoy and cornerback Marcus Burley to make room for the signings of wide receiver Tobais Palmer, wide receiver Lamaar Thomas, wide receiver Jeremy Ebert and defensive tackle Jordan Miller to the practice squad, the team announced.

Both Palmer and Ebert were waived from the Jaguars' active roster on Monday after they were promoted from the practice squad just prior to the team's Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Ebert received 23 offensive snaps and Palmer received four, but neither recorded a reception. They were released to make room for the additions of Ricky Stanzi and Jacques McClendon on Monday.

McCoy, who was claimed by the Jaguars at the end of preseason after he was released by the Philadelphia Eagles, was previously waived from the active roster, but his release from the practice squad would seem to indicate the end of his time with the team. Burley was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jaguars after the 2013 NFL Draft.

Thomas, 6'0, 185 pounds, was signed by the Denver Broncos in undrafted free agency in April, but was released by the team in final cuts. In three preseason appearances, he recorded two receptions for 28 yards.

Miller, 6'1, 316 pounds, was signed by the Chicago Bears in undrafted free agency in 2011 and spent his entire rookie season on the team's practice squad. After he was released in final cuts in 2012, he joined the Green Bay Packers in October 2012 and spent time on the active roster and practice squad. He was released in final cuts by the Packers this year and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad on Sept. 10 before he was waived on Sept. 21.
