The Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line is beginning to require its own injury report as the injuries continue to pile up.
To help bolster their depth along the offensive line, the Jaguars signed offensive tackle Herb Taylor and tight end Stephen Spach on Monday.
Taylor was most recently with the Green Bay Packers towards the end of last season and was released in their final round of cuts prior to this season. His addition may be a sign that the Jaguars coaching staff believes they could be without starting right tackle Cameron Bradfield for an extended amount of time, or they are no longer confident in backup Guy Whimper who struggled in pass protection during his time on the field Sunday.
Spach was most recently with the St. Louis Rams and has started 24 games in his NFL career, but only has 22 career receptions. As a tight end, Spach is more noted for his blocking abilities which should help the Jaguars offensive line as it works towards being healthy.
To make room for Taylor and Spach, the Jaguars released wide receiver Brian Robiskie and tight end Colin Cloherty.
With the depth issues the Jaguars are suffering from on the offensive line, they could no longer afford to luxury of carrying six wide receivers on the active roster. With the emergence of Cecil Shorts in the passing game and the special teams value of rookie Kevin Elliott, Robiskie was the odd man out.
This marks the second time in less than two weeks that the Jaguars have released Cloherty.
