Jags place Ingram on IR, sign Daniels

On linebackers-to-the-IR day in the AFC South, the Jaguars placed Clint Ingram on the list and will play the rest of the season without him.

Ingram suffered a shoulder injury Dec. 13 against Miami. Undrafted rookie Russell Allen worked in Ingram’s place in the loss to the Colts. Allen led the team with a dozen tackles.

The Jaguars had three roster spots because they recently released Kennard Cox and James Wyche.

To fill out their roster, they signed veteran free agent linebacker Tank Daniels and signed rookie tight end Zach Potter and center Cecil Newton off the practice squad to the 53-man roster. In addition, running back Josh Vaughan was signed to the practice squad.

The Jaguars will miss Ingram in New England and Cleveland in their final two games, but his loss isn’t a deal-breaker for a team that is one spot outside of the playoffs.

Daniels has been with the Eagles twice as well as the Giants. He has played in 26 regular season games and nine playoff games, including Super Bowl XLII.
