The Jacksonville Jaguars have been awarded rookie defensive end Gerald Rivers off waivers from St. Louis.

The Jaguars made room for Rivers on the 53-man roster by placing guard Mike Brewster on injured reserve. Brewster, filling in for injured starter Will Rackley (concussion), broke his left ankle in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

The 6-foot-5, 258-pound Rivers earned a spot on the Rams' opening day roster. He played in two games, seeing action on defense and special teams, and was waived Saturday.

A native of Ellenwood, Ga., Rivers played collegiately at Mississippi, where he saw action in 27 games with 10 starts. He did not play as a senior, but started five games as a junior and totaled 13 tackles.
