Jags add Cox to roster, again

The Jaguars placed Atiyyah Ellison on injured reserve Saturday and replaced him on the active roster with defensive back Kennard Cox.

Cox, a 6-0, 197-pound defender, is a first-year player out of Pittsburgh. He was a seventh-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2008 and signed with the Jaguars as a free agent in December of 2008. He has made four tackles on special teams for the Jaguars this season.

For those keeping track, Cox’s trip to the 53-man roster is his fifth this season.
