In a flurry of roster moves today, the Jacksonville Jaguars placed defensive end Josh Allen and defensive backs D.J. Hayden and Daniel Thomas on injured reserve.

All three were injured during last week’s 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, with Hayden re-injuring his hamstring, Allen injuring his knee and Thomas injuring his arm.

Because Hayden was placed on injured reserve previously, his season is over. However, both Allen and Thomas can return after three games due to the NFL’s new rules on injured reserve.

Before leaving the game due to injury, Thomas had one interception and two pass breakups. Hayden had five total tackles and one tackle for a loss, and Allen had zero tackles before injury.
