The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed rookie linebacker Jacob Cutrera (pictured right) to the 53-man roster and placed rookie return specialist Scotty McGee on injured reserve. Second-year wide receiver Lance Long was added to the practice squad.
Cutrera, who played in the season-opener against Denver, was one of three undrafted rookies to make the Jaguars opening day roster before he was waived on Sept. 18. The former Louisiana State standout played in 49 games with six starts for the Tigers.
McGee injured his shoulder in the final preseason game against Atlanta and was inactive the first two weeks. The 2010 sixth-round pick had six career returns for touchdowns at James Madison including three of 99-plus yards. He joins defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith (3rd round) as two of the club's six draft picks in 2010 who are now on injured reserve.
Long, 5-11, 186, has played in eight career games after entering the NFL as an undrafted rookie with Arizona in 2008. After spending his rookie season on the Cardinals practice squad, he played in one game for the Cardinals in 2009 before he was released and added to Kansas City's practice squad. He played in seven games for the Chiefs and finished with 20 receptions for 178 yards and added six kickoff returns for a 17.7-yard average. He spent the 2010 preseason with the Chiefs before he was waived on Aug. 31.
A native of Macomb, Mich., Long played in 36 games with seven starts at Mississippi State after transferring from Toledo following his freshman season. His career totals included 46 receptions for 321 yards and one touchdown.
