As the Jacksonville Jaguars spiral toward a top 2 draft pick in next April’s draft, the team was forced to place three more players on injured reserve Monday.

The Jaguars placed wide receiver Cecil Shorts, linebacker Greg Jones and running back Rashad Jennings on injured reserve, ending their seasons with a week left to play. Jacksonville now has 20 players on the injured reserve list.

Shorts suffered a concussion and Jones sustained a leg injury in Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots. Jennings has a shoulder injury that has forced him to miss the Jaguars’ last three games.

The Jaguars promoted receiver Jerrell Jackson from their practice squad and claimed guard Mark Asper and tight end Allen Reisner off waivers. Asper and Reisner were both released by the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday. Asper had waiver claims put in by the Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Reisner was claimed by the Jaguars, Buccaneers and Detroit Lions.

The Jaguars were awarded both Apser and Reisner due to a higher waiver priority.

    Cecil Shorts, Fred Jackson, Percy Harvin, Jalen Parmele all were on my Fantasy Football team and are now all on IR.
    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Gotta feel for shorts. So close to the 1k mark.

    I never understood why the Jaguars went all out hard against the Pats. What was there to play for? What were they trying to achieve? They didn’t want the number one seed? Will they try to avoid being the number two seed as well this weekend?

    More NFL teams scurrying for the scraps from the Vikings table.

    If the Jags had a league-average quarterback at the helm, Cecil Shorts could be really dangerous. The fact that he had almost 1,000 yards and 8 TDs catching passes from the likes of Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert says a lot about his talent level.

    As a Vikes fan, I can tell you that we lack depth all over. So, picking up anyone cut from our team is silly. SKOL VIKES

    As far as vuduu’s comment, I think the Jags showed a lot of pride and competitive spirit, and should be commended not insulted.
