The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed wide receiver Jeremy Ebert and cornerback Marcus Burley to the practice squad on Tuesday, one day after waiving the pair of players, the team announced.

Ebert and Burley were added to the active roster after injuries at the wide receiver and cornerback position forced the team to add numbers to the positions. Ebert played in 12 snaps and caught one pass from Chad Henne for five yards, the first reception of his career. Burley was listed as inactive prior to the game.

Burley, 23, is a 5'10, 185-pound rookie cornerback with a 4.35 40-yard dash time that played for the Delaware Blue Hens. He saw limited time in preseason, seeing the field for only 21 snaps.

Released from the practice squad to make room for the additions was cornerback Steven Terrell, an undrafted free agent who spent the entire offseason with the Jaguars. The team had a vacant practice squad after entering Sunday's Week 2 game with just six players.
