Jaguars tweak roster to replace WR Blackmon

AP - Sports

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed receiver Justin Blackmon on the suspended list and released safety Dwight Lowery from injured reserve.

The team also waived tight end D.J. Williams, signed receiver Kerry Taylor off Arizona's practice squad and promoted tight end Danny Noble from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Blackmon was suspended for the rest of the season Friday for another violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Lowery spent the last seven weeks on IR with a concussion. The team said he would be cut when healthy.

Taylor played in three games for Arizona this season, totaling three catches for 40 yards. He also has spent time with Green Bay, New England, San Francisco and Minnesota.

Noble spent the past four weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad.
