The Jaguars have placed rookie return specialist Scotty McGee on injured reserve. McGee was inactive for the first two weeks of the regular season after injuring his shoulder in the final preseason contest.

Taking McGee's spot on the 53-man roster is LB Jacob Cutrera. Cutrera was one of three rookie free agents to make the Jaguars' Week One roster, and he appeared in the opening-week win over the Broncos before being waived on Sept. 18.

In another move, the Jaguars added second-year WR Lance Long to the practice squad. Long entered the league as an undrafted rookie with the Cardinals in 2008. He has appeared in eight regular-season games — one with the Cardinals in '08 and seven with the Chiefs in '09. Long, who had 20 catches for 178 yards last season in Kansas City, was waived by the Chiefs on Aug.  31.

The way we see it

The Jaguars were hopeful that McGee would handle the team's punt-return duties this fall, but the shoulder injury derailed those plans. Jacksonville drafted McGee in the sixth round after being impressed by what he accomplished at James Madison, which included six career returns for touchdowns (including three of 99-plus yards).

With McGee's placement on injured reserve, two of Jacksonville's six 2010 draft picks are now on I.R. Third-round DT D'Anthony Smith is also out for the season.
