JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed kick returner Jaydon Mickens on injured reserve and re-signed receiver Rashad Greene.

The team announced the roster moves Monday, one day after a 40-7 loss at Dallas. Mickens broke his left ankle returning a punt in the third quarter.

The Jaguars (3-3) now have seven key contributors on IR, including receiver Marqise Lee (knee), left tackle Cam Robinson (knee), backup left tackle Josh Wells (groin), tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle), running back Corey Grant (foot) and long-snapper Carson Tinker (knee).

Mickens returned six kickoffs for 149 yards this season and 12 punts for 59 yards.

Greene, a fifth-round draft pick by Jacksonville in 2015, has appeared in 17 games. He has 24 receptions for 125 yards and two touchdowns. He also has returned 39 punts for 432 yards.
