Saturday, September 3, 2011
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed backup running back Rashad Jennings on injured reserve and waived safety Don Carey, who started 10 games last season.
The Jaguars also placed cornerback David Jones, defensive end Aaron Morgan, running back Richard Murphy and defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith on IR.
The team acquired defensive back Dwight Lowery in a trade with the New York Jets, allowing the team to part ways with Carey.
Other notable players waived were running back DuJuan Harris, defensive end Larry Hart and cornerback Terrence Wheatley. Return specialist Scotty McGee was waived/injured. If he clears waivers, he will revert to the team's injured reserve list.
Three undrafted rookies made Jacksonville's 53-man roster: cornerback Kevin Rutland, offensive tackle Cameron Bradfield and receiver Jamar Newsom.
