Jacksonville, FL ( - The Jacksonville Jaguars made a flurry of roster moves on Monday, signing running back Delone Carter and placing running back Justin Forsett and wide receiver Stephen Burton on injured reserve.

Carter spent his first two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, where he rushed 133 times for 499 yards with five touchdowns. The Syracuse product was traded to Baltimore on Aug. 21 and waived by the Ravens nine days later.

Forsett broke a bone in his foot in Jacksonville's 27-20 win over Houston on Nov. 24. The 28-year-old appeared in nine games this season and carried the ball six times for 31 yards, while adding 15 catches for 82 yards.

Burton suffered a concussion in a 29-27 Jaguars' win over Tennessee on Nov. 10 and has not played since. The three-year pro had eight catches for 76 yards in four games this season.

The Jaguars also signed wide receiver Chad Bumphis to the practice squad and waived wide receiver Marcus Jackson.
