In surprising news, the Jacksonville Jaguars have placed wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker on injured reserve with a knee injury. The team announced the move earlier today. It's unknown when Sims-Walker injured his knee, but it had to have been on Sunday against the Houston Texans. Sims-Walker played in the game after dealing with the flu during the week and Jaguars head coach noted Sims-Walker was effected in the game, lacking energy. Sims-Walker missed practice this week apparently due to having a tooth pulled.

With Sims-Walker being placed on injured reserve, it opens up a roster spot for former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Robiskie, who was waived by the team yesterday. The Jaguars receiving group has been abysmal this season and it seems the team is desperate to get help from anywhere. During the season, the Jaguars have signed two players that were released from their team mid-season and teams that were hurting at the receiver position.
