JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Jeremy Ebert and Tobais Palmer off the practice squad, adding to their group of receivers because of injuries to Mike Brown and Stephen Burton.
Brown (back) and Burton (concussion) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. And with receiver Justin Blackmon suspended for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the Jaguars were down to two healthy receivers: Cecil Shorts III and rookie Ace Sanders.
To make room for Ebert and Palmer, the team waived guard Jacques McClendon and quarterback Ricky Stanzi.
Ebert, a seventh-round pick by New England in 2012, played in the last two games and had a 5-yard reception at Oakland.
Palmer joined the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie free agent in May and was on the practice squad the first three weeks.
