JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As expected Jaguars defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks has been placed on the season ending injured reserve list. Marks, who tore his ACL in the 2014 regular season finale, made his return and 2015 debut in Week 6 vs. Houston and played in four games before tearing his triceps in Week 10 at Baltimore. Marks had a successful repair of his torn triceps tendon by Head Team Physician Dr. Kevin Kaplan at the Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute.

Rookie Safety James Sample has also been placed on IR. He was the Jaguars fourth-round selection in the 2015 draft. Sample has been inactive the last five games due to a shoulder injury.

Fellow rookie Rashad Greene was placed on the short term IR on Sept. 22 due to a thumb injury. He's been practicing for the past couple of weeks and will make his return in tomorrow night's game against Tennessee.

Safety Craig Loston will fill the other remaining roster spot.
