Jaguars activate FB Bolen because ailing Jones might sit vs. Colts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars activated fullback Brock Bolen from the practice squad, an indication that Greg Jones' ankle injury could keep him out of Thursday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Jones injured his right ankle during Sunday's 14-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins and had X-rays, but Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said Monday that he didn't have the results.

To make room for Bolen, the Jaguars waived cornerback/kick returner Brian Witherspoon. An undrafted rookie in 2008, Witherspoon averaged 23.9 yards on 76 kick returns and 11.3 yards on 24 punt returns. He returned two kickoffs for 38 yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Bolen, who signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in April, spent the first 14 weeks on the Jaguars' practice squad.
