The Jacksonville Jaguars today placed defensive end Paul Spicer on injured reserve after surgery on his fractured right leg and resigned offensive lineman Mike Compton.
Spicer, 29, started two games for the Jaguars in 2004 before being injured against the Broncos last Sunday. The 6-4, 287-pound defensive end had made seven tackles (five solo) and three quarterback pressures on the season. In his 53 career games with the Jaguars, he has 11 starts, 134 tackles (81 solo), seven sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.
Compton, 34, started the first two games of 2003 for the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots before being placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season with a leg injury. Until last season, the 12th year veteran, had only missed two starts in the previous seven seasons, playing at every position on the offensive line. The 6-6, 310-pounder has started 119 of 138 career games. He started the last three seasons in New England, picking up two Super Bowl championship rings after signing as a free agent in 2001.
