Tight end Colin Cloherty was signed by the Jaguars, who placed Brett Brackett on injured reserve. Brackett, who finished last season on Philadelphia's practice squad, suffered a knee injury a half hour into his first practice with the Jaguars on Monday, two days after being claimed off waivers. Cloherty played in four games for Jacksonville last season, and spent time on the team's practice squad. He has also spent time with Indianapolis, Cleveland and San Francisco.

Wide receivers in the NFL have always been players that need at least three years before they break out, but because of the expansion of the passing game in college football has led to more wide receivers every year making an impact in their first year. In 2008, it was DeSean Jackson that sparked the Philadelphia Eagles offense to the NFC Championship game. In 2009, Mike Wallace...

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan refused to budge. Although many people believe that Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has outperformed his contract, Khan refused to cave-in to his star running back’s demands for a new contract. And it seems that Khan won the standoff with Jones-Drew after Jones-Drew ended his 38-day holdout and returned to the team on Sunday despite...
Maurice Jones-Drew will begin the season much like he did his NFL career: as a backup and third-down running back.
Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says he expects Jones-Drew to rotate in on third downs Sunday at Minnesota. Mularkey says the NFL's leading rusher in 2011 also will ''get a series'' in place of starter Rashad Jennings.
Mularkey says Jones...
Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who practiced for the first time Monday since ending his 38-day holdout Sunday without getting a new contract, will play in the season opener in Minnesota. Jones-Drew contributed almost 48 percent of the Jaguars' offense last season, the highest percentage by any player in the past 10 years according to Elias...
Jacksonville head coach Mike Mularkey acknowledged that Maurice Jones-Drew's use will be limited to occasional third-down carries in Sunday's season opener against the Vikings.Fantasy Spin:That means Rashad Jennings is a must-start in Week 1, though it will be intriguing to see if the Jaguars give MJD any goal-line looks just a week after ending his holdout.
So Maurice Jones-Drew finally ended his holdout with Jacksonville on Sunday. Though no word on why he had a change of heart as of this typing, I have to assume he wanted to help Razzball writer Tehol Beddict further his tv career and me so I didn’t have to keep hearing ‘When is MJD going to come back? Why is he so high in your rankings if he’s a hold out? Why do you insist...
According to Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey, running back Maurice Jones-Drew will play against the Minnesota Vikings, but Rashad Jennings will get the start.
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) at Minnesota Vikings (0-0)
I didn’t have the Vikings listed as one of my underrated teams in the league, but maybe I should have. They had incredibly bad luck during their 3-13 season last year, going 2-9 in games decided by a touchdown or less and had the point differential of a team that should have won 5 or 6 games. A full season of Christian Ponder...

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (31)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 32) - Showdowns with Colts won't be for division title.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 31) - At least Blaine Gabbert looks like he's making progress, Maurice Jones-Drew is back, and Justin Blackmon looks like real deal.
