JACKSONVILLE, Florida - Bothered by a sprained ankle since training camp, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback James Trapp was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday after re-aggravating the injury Sunday.

Trapp hurt his ankle again in a loss 30-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He originally suffered the injury in the second preseason game against Miami, but has played in five games during the regular season with the ailment.

The 33-year-old Trapp had five tackles and one interception on defense and five tackles on special teams this season.

To take Trapps place on the active roster, Jacksonville (1-6) activated defensive tackle Matt Leonard from the practice squad. Leonard's place on the practice squad was filled with safety Ray Perryman.

Leonard was on the Jaguars' active roster for the first two games of the season, but was inactive for both contests. He was waived on September 16 and signed to the practice squad two days later.

Perryman finished last season on the Baltimore Ravens' roster, appearing in two games. However, he was waived by the Ravens on August 25.

Jacksonville aims for only its second win of the season when it travels to Baltimore on Sunday.
