Jaguars activate Mike Lockley from practice squad, place Martin Rucker on injured reserve

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed rookie linebacker Mike Lockley to the active roster from the practice squad and signed second-year offensive lineman George Bussey to the practice squad.  Third-year tight end Martin Rucker was placed on injured reserve with a back injury. 

Lockley spent the first nine weeks of the regular season on the Jaguars practice squad after signing as an undrafted rookie.  The Orlando native was a four-year letterman at Florida Atlantic and started his final two seasons at middle linebacker.  He tallied 120 tackles along with 6.5 tackles for loss and two sacks as a senior.  

Bussey, 6-3, 305, was a fifth-round draft pick of New England in 2009.  He spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury and was waived/injured in 2010 by the Patriots prior to the regular season opener.  In 2011 he played for the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League.  A native of Louisville, Kentucky, he was a four-year letterman at Louisville where he earned All-Big East honors as a senior.
