Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Wednesday that they’re placing K Josh Lambo on injured reserve with a hip injury.
Marrone added that they will promote K Brandon Wright to their active roster for Thursday’s game against the Dolphins, per John Oesher.
It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Lambo, 29, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M back in 2015. He spent just over two years with the Chargers before he was waived at the start of the 2017 season.
The Jaguars later signed him to a contract during the 2017 season and he has been in Jacksonville ever since.
Lambo was in line to be an unrestricted free agent last year when he agree to a four-year extension worth $15.5 million and $6.5 million in full guarantees.
In 2020, Lambo has appeared in two games for the Jaguars and converted all three field goal attempts and 6 of 7 extra point tries.
