Special teams player Nkang waived by Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived special teams player Chad Nkang.

Age: 23

Height: 5-11  Weight: 215

College: Elon

Experience: 2 seasons

Nkang played two seasons and appeared in 23 games with the Jaguars before being cut Thursday.

Nkang began last season on the physically unable to perform list because of a wrist injury. He had seven special teams tackles and a forced fumble in seven games before being lost in December with a shoulder injury. He set a franchise record with 30 special teams tackles as a rookie in 2007 after being drafted in the seventh round out of Elon.

The Jaguars also cut running back Mike McLendon, a rookie free agent from North Alabama signed after last month's draft.
