JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed defensive end John Chick on injured reserve with a knee injury. The team also claimed receiver Taylor Price off waivers from New England and promoted safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah from the practice squad.
Price, a third-round pick by New England in 2010, was a four-year letterman at Ohio University. He holds the school record with 149 career receptions and ranks second with 2,019 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. He played in four games for the Patriots the last two seasons. He was waived Saturday.
Owusu-Ansah, a fourth-round pick by Dallas in 2010, was signed to Jacksonville's practice squad last week.
