The Jacksonville Jaguars today placed MLB Tom McManus on
injured reserve. The Jaguars also made two practice squad moves,
waiving LB Brandon Southward and signing DE Rahmaan Streater.
McManus suffered a foot injury on September 19 at Carolina. He is
a five-year veteran and one of only 13 Jaguars who have been with
the team since its inception. He had won the starting middle
linebacker job in the preseason for the first time. He finishes the
year with nine tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed.
Southward spent the first three weeks of the season on the Jaguars'
practice squad after being waived on August 31. He had been
signed as a rookie free agent out of the University of Colorado on
Streater was waived by the Washington Redskins on September 5
in the final cuts. He spent the entire 1998 season on Washington's
practice squad after being converted from tight end, where he
played at the University of Richmond. The 24-year-old Streater
(6-5, 263) is a native of Alexandria, Va.
