It's Battle Red Day, and the Texans have once again scheduled the Jacksonville Jaguars. …
Jaguars Remodeling WR Corps
In the offseason, the Jaguars sent Jerry Porter, Matt Jones and Reggie Williams packing and they traded Dennis Northcutt to Detroit.
They drafted three wide receivers and signed veteran Torry Holt. Williamson, a disappointment last year and in previous seasons with the Vikings, won a starting job in training camp.
And now that they've lost Williamson and Hughes has departed, rookies Mike Thomas and Jarett Dillard are likely to make their debuts against the Texans Sunday.
When coach Jack Del Rio was asked if Hughes was cut because of his two drops, he said, "It's a tough business."
This is the second consecutive week the Jaguars cut a player after he performed poorly. Defensive end James Wyche was the victim after the first game.
Continuing their youth movement they signed rookie cornerback William Middleton off Atlanta's practice squad and signed rookie free agent safety Courtney Greene.
The team also released veteran tight end Greg Estandia and safety Michael Desormeaux was waived from the practice squad. They also released first-year linebacker Justin Roland.
Greene was a seventh-round pick by Seattle and was waived on Sept. 5. Middleton was a fifth-round pick by the Falcons who was also waived on Sept. 5. He was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay before being waived on Sept. 10. He was resigned to the Falcons' practice squad on Sept. 16.
Estandia was released because Zach Miller, who broke a bone in the back of his kneecap in the first preseason game in Miami, is ready to play again.
