Jaguars place Will Blackmon on IR, sign Khairi Fortt

The Jacksonville Jaguars placed cornerback Will Blackmon on injured reserve with a broken index finger.

He's been out for weeks.

The Jaguars signed linebacker Khairi Fortt, who was drafted in the fourth round by the New Orleans Saints before being cut amidst reports of him missing team meetings.

Fortt was signed off of the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad.

The Jaguars need help at linebacker with Jeremiah George out with a high ankle sprain and Paul Posluszny out for the year.
