Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller is expected to miss the club’s final game of the season after suffering a torn meniscus during Sunday’s game against the Ravens, writes Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. The 27-year-old agreed to a four-year, ~$16MM extension with Jacksonville on Tuesday.
Miller didn’t play in last night’s win against the Titans, and is expected to placed on injured reserve shortly. In 2014, which marks his sixth season in the NFL and his fourth in Jacksonville, Miller started 14 games, and racked up 21 tackles and one sack. He played on roughly 49% of the Jags’ defensive snaps, and graded out as the 52nd-best DT in the league among 80 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus (subscription required).
Once Miller is officially moved to IR, the Jaguars will be able to sign a free agent or promote a practice squad player to take his place on the 53-man roster.
