The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed second-year linebacker Leon Jacobs on injured reserve. His season is over.

Newly signed Cassius Marsh is the next man up at the SAM linebacker position.

Jacobs finishes the season with three tackles and one tackle for a loss.

A fourth round pick for the Seahawks in 2014, Marsh never produced enough to hold a roster spot for longer than a season or two after being released in 2017. He has 14.0 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, and 25 tackles for a loss in six seasons.

He has been durable, however — he has missed just one game since 2015.

Marsh’s father, a wide receiver who played college football at Utah, was drafted in the seventh round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.
