And the player-go-round just keeps on going.The Jacksonville Jaguars have added two more players to the injured reserve list in Chris Prosinski and T.J. Heath. Chris Prosinski was a fourth round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Wyoming. He mostly saw action as a backup behind Dwight Lowery and he made his first start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Also headed to IR is T.J. Heath, who was an undrafted rookie free agent that saw time as a special teams player. In their places, the Jaguars signed a couple of cornerbacks in Darcell McBath and Robert McClain.
With Prosinski falling, that only leaves three safeties on the team, Dawan Landry, Dwight Lowery (who has battled a shoulder injury), and recent pickup, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. If Lowery isn't able to play on Thursday against the Atlanta Falcons, we could have yet another instance where a recent pickup would have to start due to an injury to a starter. That could provide disaterous results for a team about to go up against one of the better QBs in the league. Heath's injury doesn't hurt as much since most of his contributions were on special teams, but the coverage team has already taken a hit and that may result in coverage that isn't as tight.
