Jaguars promote LB Lockley, place TE Rucker on IR
The team also signed second-year offensive lineman George Bussey to the practice squad.
Lockley spent the first nine weeks of the regular season on Jacksonville's practice squad after signing as an undrafted rookie. He had 120 tackles, 6½ tackles and two sacks as a senior at Florida Atlantic.
Bussey was a fifth-round draft pick by New England in 2009. The Louisville graduate spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury and was waived/injured in 2010. He played for the Arena Football League's Tampa Bay Storm in 2011.
