Jags sign pair off practice squad
September 14, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - With injuries at receiver and cornerback, the Jacksonville Jaguars turned to their practice squad to fill potential holes against Oakland.
The Jaguars signed first-year receiver Jeremy Ebert and rookie cornerback Marcus Burley off the practice squad Saturday.
To make room for them on the roster, the team waived guard Jacques McClendon and defensive end Chris McCoy. McClendon and McCoy accompanied the team to the West Coast and likely will be re-signed next week.
Ebert and Burley might be needed if receiver Mike Brown (back) and cornerback Alan Ball (groin) can't play against the Raiders. Both are questionable and considered game-day decisions.
Ebert, a seventh-round pick by New England in 2012, spent the preseason with the Jaguars. Burley, an undrafted rookie signed earlier this year, spent the preseason with the club.
