The Jaguars continue to add players to injured-reserve. Tuesday three veterans were moved to the list, the 12th, 13th, and 14th players who won't finish the season.

Linebacker Daryl Smith (groin), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (toe) and wide receiver Jerry Porter (groin) are finished.

Nine of the players who won't finish the year were starters or regular contributors.

Coach Jack Del Rio said recovery for all three players will range from four to eight weeks.

The onslaught of injuries will prompt him to consider changes.

"I'm concerned with the number of injuries we've had," he said. "I think we need to make sure that we're giving ourselves every advantage that we can. We'll look at everything, obviously. The conditioning component of it is important. I think sometimes you just have some bad luck but we'll look at everything."

The Jaguars added defensive back Calvin Lowry and guard Cameron Stephenson to their roster and still have one open spot.

Lowry was drafted in the fourth-round by Tennessee in 2006 and was most recently with Denver. Stephenson was signed off the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints.
