Jaguars sign Harrington off Cards’ practice squad

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-year defensive end

Chris Harrington off Arizona’s practice squad and waived first-year

defensive back Kennard Cox.

The moves on Friday came as the Jaguars continued to look for

help along a defensive line that has suffered season-ending

injuries to Reggie Hayward, Rob Meier and Bryan Smith. The team

also waived defensive tackle Derek Landri last week.

The Cardinals drafted the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Harrington in the

sixth round in 2008. He spent time on Arizona’s practice squad last

season before getting signed by Cincinnati and playing three games.

The Bengals waived Harrington during final cuts in September and he

rejoined Arizona.

Cox played in three games this season and spent nine weeks on

the practice squad.
