Jaguars long snapper Carson Tinker is out for the season after sustaining a torn right ACL in Wednesday’s practice, Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Tinker was placed on injured reserve Thursday and the Jaguars signed long snapper Matt Overton.
The Jaguars also waived/injured tailback I’Tavius Mathers on injured reserve and signed guard Malcolm Bunche. If Mathers clears waivers, he will be placed on injured reserve.
Tinker was participating in non-contact special teams drill when he appeared to either get tangled up with a teammate or took a wrong step. Tinker, a 2013 undrafted free agent who had not missed a regular season game in four years, will soon undergo surgery.
