JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ The Jaguars ended John Broussard's
season Friday, putting the rookie wide receiver on injured reserve
and replacing him on the roster with receiver Chad Owens.
Broussard had played in eight games and caught four passes for
126 yards and one touchdown. He has been inactive for the last six
games after injuring an ankle against Tennessee on November 11th.
Owens has spent the last eight weeks on the practice squad after
the Jaguars resigned him on November 8th. He was originally
selected by Jacksonville in the sixth round of the 2005 NFL draft.
He has played in five games with the Jaguars the past two
seasons and has 12 punt returns for 62 yards. Owens signed with
Tampa Bay in January but was waived in August before signing with
the Jaguars in November.
