Reggie Hayward lands on IR

As expected, the Jaguars announced earlier today the defensive end Reggie Hayward has been placed on injured reserve.

Hayward broke a leg in the regular-season opener, literally.

To fill his spot on the roster, the Jags elevated cornerback Kennard Cox from the practice squad, and backfilled the slot on the practice squad by signing defensive end Robert Henderson.

Hayward suffered the broken leg during the Colts’ last offensive snap (pun not intended), a fourth-and-one try that Jacksonville stuffed.

Hayward will earn the balance of his $1.75 million base salary.  He is due to become an unrestricted free agent in 2010.

    No Hayward= more 3-4
    More 3-4= more Brian Iwuh
    Iwuh is amazing and could easily start on a majority of other teams.

    Guess we won’t see him in Jax anymore. Hard to assess his value to the team when you look back at his time here. Too much time on IR, that’s for sure.
    Hopefully he can revive his career next year somewhere else, but two years on IR will make that very tough.

    The real shame of this is that Reggie is one of those real great team guys, a real leader in and out of the locker room. And dude took a substantial pay cut to stay with the Jaguars this season. That could mean he wouldn’t have been worth a lot on the market, but I like to believe he bought into the team’s rebuilding program.
    I hope he recovers full and comes back next season. He’s the kind of vet you want to keep around.
