Jaguars place Grant, Washington on IR, promote Sterling

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed kick returner Corey Grant and receiver Tony Washington on injured reserve.

The team also promoted receiver Neal Sterling from the practice squad Tuesday.

Grant tore a hip flexor in a loss to Houston on Sunday, and Washington severely strained a hip flexor.

The Jaguars (1-5) also released defensive tackle Ziggy Hood from the injured list after he passed a physical and released quarterback Jeff Tuel from the practice squad. Jacksonville signed rookie receiver Rasheed Bailey and safety Craig Loston to the practice squad.

The 6-foot-4 Sterling, a seventh-round pick by Jacksonville, could see playing time Sunday against Buffalo in London. Receiver Marqise Lee is likely to miss another game with a hamstring injury, and receiver Allen Robinson is dealing with a bruised lower leg.
