The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Monday they have waived/injured cornerback Josh Johnson and signed tight end David Grinnage via a press release. Johnson made the Jaguars last season as a special teams player and a slot corner, slated to be the backup slot corner this season.
If Johnson clears waivers, he will revert to the Jaguars injured reserve. Johnson’s specific injury was not disclosed. Johnson’s place on the roster might have become tenuous regardless, with the play of Tyler Patmon so far in training camp. The Johnson injury just further underlines the current injury issues in the defensive backfield for the Jaguars.
To take his place on the roster, the Jaguars signed tight end David Grinnage.
Grinnage, 6-5, 265, originally signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent, leaving North Carolina State after his junior season. He has yet to appear in an NFL game, as he was released on an injury settlement by the Packers last season.
