The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed cornerback Derek Cox on injured reserve due to a knee injury. They replaced him on the rosterwith quarterback Dan LeFevour, signing him off the Indianapolis Colts practice squad. Cox had started 33 games since he was drafted in the third round of the 2009 draft.

He started six games this season and finished with 16 tackles and 10 passes defensed. He led the club in interceptions in each of his first two seasons. LeFevour was a sixth-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2010. He was claimed off waivers by Cincinnati on Sept. 5, 2010 and spent the entire season on the Bengals 53-man roster, though he was inactive for all 16 games as the third quarterback. LeFevour spent the preseason with the Bengals before he was waived on final cuts. He was signed to the Colts practice squad on Nov. 9.

LeFevour was a four-year starter at Central Michigan. He finished his career by completing 1,171 of 1,763 passes (66.4 pct.) for 12,905 yards with 102 touchdowns and 35 interceptions. He added 2,948 rushing yards and 47 touchdowns.

A four-time All-MAC selection, he holds conference records for total offense, passing yards, touchdown passes, completions and attempts.

As a senior, LeFevour was named MAC Offensive Player of the Year and received 13 points in balloting for the Heisman Trophy.
