JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed defensive tackle Atiyyah Ellison on injured reserve and signed defensive back Kennard Cox from the practice squad.

Ellison had played in every game this season before injuring his knee last week at New England. Ellison finished with 28 tackles and a sack.

Cox has played in four games this season but has spent most of the year on the practice squad. A seventh-round draft pick by Buffalo in 2008, he signed with the Jaguars as a free agent in December 2008. He has made four special-teams tackles this season.
