Jaguars place Shorts, two others on IR

Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - Prior to their season finale against the Tennessee Titans, the Jacksonville Jaguars have placed wide receiver Cecil Shorts, running back Rashad Jennings and linebacker Greg Jones on injured reserve.

Shorts suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots, but turned in a stellar sophomore campaign for Jacksonville, catching a team-leading seven touchdowns among his 55 receptions. He also leads the Jaguars with 979 receiving yards.

With Maurice Jones-Drew sidelined much of the season, Jennings headed the Jaguars' rushing attack and received the bulk of the carries, but has missed the last three games due to a concussion and a shoulder injury. He totaled 283 yards and two touchdowns on 101 carries over 10 games.

Jones suffered a fractured fibula in this past Sunday's loss. He appeared in six games for Jacksonville this season, registering four tackles.

In other roster news, the Jaguars promoted wide receiver Jerrell Jackson from the practice squad and claimed offensive lineman Mark Asper and tight end Allen Reisner from the Minnesota Vikings.
