The Jacksonville Jaguars have told backup running back Rashad Jennings they will place him on injured reserve.
Jennings injured his knee against the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago and was seen on crutches last week.
The Jaguars could find a running back in free agency or off waivers to have an every-down type of backup for Maurice Jones-Drew.
Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio also said Friday he'd expect fullbacks Montell Owens and Brock Bolen to see more carries this year.
If Jacksonville fails to make a move, Deji Karim will be Maurice Jones-Drew's handcuff. Given Jones-Drew's health has been in question, Karim is worth a late-round look.
