Jaguars place fullback Bradie Ewing on IR

Monday August 18th, 2014

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed fullback Bradie Ewing on injured reserve after he suffered a season-ending wrist injury in a preseason game against the Bears last Thursday, according to reports.

Ewing, who was listed as the No. 2 fullback on the Jaguars' preseason depth chart, was waived by the team on Saturday, then placed on IR after he cleared waivers. The Jaguars signed Harvey Unga, another fullback.

Ewing, a fifth-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2012, spent two seasons with Atlanta before joining the Jaguars this offseason. In two starts in 2013, Ewing caught two passes for 29 yards.

The Jaguars' next preseason game is Friday against the Lions.
