Jags put two on IR, sign a RB
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars put receiver Stephen Burton and running back Justin Forsett on Injured Reserve and signed running back Delone Carter on Monday.
Forsett (broken foot) has six carries for 81 yards, and 15 catches for 82 yards in nine games. He was hurt in the Jaguars' victory against Houston on Nov 24.
Forsett signed a two-year contract with the Jaguars in March, but he suffered a sprained toe on his right foot on Aug. 1 in the first live practice period of training camp and missed the rest of camp and all of the preseason. Meanwhile, first-year running back Jordan Todman led the team in rushing in the preseason (223 yards) and earned a bigger role on offense (18 carries for 53 yards in nine games).
Burton has played in just four games this season because of multiple concussions, and has eight receptions for 76 yards
Carter was a fourth-round pick by Indianapolis in 2011 and rushed for 499 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons with the Colts. Indianapolis traded him to Baltimore on Aug. 1, and he hasn't been with a team since the Ravens cut him Aug. 30.
