Jaguars cut 20, place WR Greene on injured reserve

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted with 20 players and placed receiver Rashad Greene on injured reserve.

Those moves helped Jacksonville reduce the roster to the NFL-mandated, 53-man limit Saturday.

The Jaguars kept three quarterbacks: Blake Bortles, Chad Henne and Brandon Allen.

Jacksonville released three veterans: linebacker Andrew Gachkar, defensive end Malliciah Goodman and linebacker Josh McNary.

The Jaguars also waived/injured cornerback Doran Grant, safety Jarrod Harper and receiver Shane Wynn. Grant, Harper and Wynn will revert to the team's injured reserve if they clear waivers.

Greene, a fifth-round draft pick from Florida State in 2015, is not eligible to return this season.
