JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars placed defensive tackle Atiyyah Ellison on season-ending injured reserve Saturday and signed defensive back Kennard Cox from the practice squad.
Ellison had played in every game this season before injuring his knee last week at New England. Ellison finished the season with 16 tackles and one sack.
Cox has played in four games this season but spent most of the year on the practice squad. A seventh-round draft pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2008, Cox signed with the Jaguars as a free agent in December 2008. He has four special-teams tackles this season.
