JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - On Monday Jaguars coach Doug Marrone confirmed that running back Corey Grant would be placed on injured reserve. The Jaguars are also placing tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins on IR. 

Marrone says Seferian-Jenkins will have core muscle surgery but could return later in the season. Grant will miss the rest of the year with a foot injury.

Seferian-Jenkins has 11 receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown. Grant has 13 carries for 40 yards to go along with nine receptions for 67 yards.

The Jaguars (3-2) likely will add a running back this week, though Marrone said there's a chance Leonard Fournette (hamstring) could return to play at Dallas on Sunday. According to Marrone the plan is to see where Fournette is at health wise on Wednesday. 

A report by the NFL Network says that decision has already been made.

So far Fournette has missed three games this season because of a strained right hamstring, leaving T.J. Yeldon to handle the bulk of the workload. Brandon Wilds is the only other running back currently on the Jaguars roster.
