Jaguars claim Rivers off waivers, Brewster to IR
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.
