The Jacksonville Jaguars are yet again in need of a starting place kicker, this time after starting PK Josh Lambo injured his gluteus medius muscle again on Sunday, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said on Monday.
Lambo was injured on the team’s onside kick near the conclusion of the team’s 27-25 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.

They’ve signed PK Aldrick Rosas to the practice squad (still serving a suspension that will last two more games).
Also signed OL Garrett McGhin to PS
He will be placed on the team’s season-long injured reserve list, unable to return this season because he was already placed on the team’s reserve/injured list once this season.
To field his replacement, the Jaguars are “expected” to promote kicker Jon Brown from the team’s practice squad to its active roster, according to a report from the Associated Press’ Mark Long.

Brown first signed with the Jaguars and played in place of Lambo in the team’s matchup against the Detroit Lions. Brown was able to make one extra point and one field goal, while missing another during the contest.
The team has already officially placed Lambo on injured reserve and has since signed former Jaguars kicker Aldrick Rosas to the team’s practice squad. Rosas is currently serving two more games of a four-game suspension given to him a couple weeks ago.
Rosas has also kicked for the Jaguars earlier this season, and has been a part of the rotation of kickers the team has used thus far this season, including Lambo, Brown, Brandon Wright and Steven Hauschka.
During his time with the Jaguars, Rosas played in one game, making four out of five of his field goals and making the team’s lone extra point in its contest against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Jaguars will also be signing offensive lineman Garrett McGhin to the practice squad. McGhin spent time on the team’s 80-man roster during training camp earlier this season.
