JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)The Jacksonville Jaguars signed guard John Miller and promoted defensive tackle Corey Peters from the practice squad to the active roster Wednesday.
Miller fills left guard Ben Bartch’s roster spot. Bartch was placed on injured reserve with a dislocated left knee, and coach Doug Pederson said he’s done for the season. Bartch is the first starter Jacksonville (2-3) has lost to a season-ending injury in 2022. Peters fills reserve outside linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson’s roster spot. Chaisson was put on short-term IR with a sprained left knee and is expected to return next month.
Miller was drafted in the third round in 2015 by Buffalo. He has started 84 games with the Bills (2015-18), Cincinnati (2019) and Carolina (2020-21). Pederson said veteran Tyler Shatley, the most tenured player on Jacksonville’s roster, will start at Indianapolis on Sunday.
Peters has played in 153 games over his 12-year career, including 11 starts for Arizona last season. He has 319 tackles, 19 sacks and 10 pass breakups.
Jacksonville also signed linebacker Rashod Berry and defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter to the practice squad.
