The Jacksonville Jaguars made several roster moves today, placing guard Chris Naeole on injured reserve and re-signing offensive lineman Tutan Reyes and linebackers Jorge Cordova and Roy Manning. Linebacker Justin Durant was placed on Reserve/Suspended, and defensive tackle Marcus Stroud was suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the NFL Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances.

Naeole, 32, was placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn quadriceps tendon in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. The 11th year veteran had started all eight games this season at right guard and had started 87 games for the Jaguars since signing as an unrestricted free agent in 2002. Sunday's game had marked his 150th start in his 154-game career.

Reyes, 30, returns to the Jaguars after originally being signed on Aug. 20, 2007.

The Queens, New York native has started 34 of his 37 career games. He will wear jersey No. 78.

Cordova, 26, was originally selected by the Jaguars in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Nevada-Reno. The 6-1, 244-pound linebacker was waived on Aug. 27 after playing in 13 games in 2006. He recorded three solo tackles on defense and eight on special teams. The San Diego native spent his first two seasons on injured reserve. He will wear jersey No. 58.

Manning, 25, was waived by the Jaguars on Sept. 1 after being claimed off waivers from Buffalo.
