The Jaguars made four roster moves Saturday to address depth at fullback and offensive tackle.

Signed were fullback Harvey Unga and rookie offensive tackle Cody Booth. The Jaguars waived receiver Chad Hall and injured fullback Bradie Ewing (wrist).

Unga takes Ewing’s spot on the roster and Booth was signed because starting right tackle Austin Pasztor broke his right hand in Thursday’s game at Chicago and is scheduled for surgery and reserve left tackle Josh Wells sustained a shoulder injury.

Unga (6-foot, 237 pounds) is a former NFL Supplemental Draft pick by the Bears but did not play in a regular season game during parts of three years (2011-13). He was released from Chicago’s practice squad last October.

Unga holds the BYU record for career rushing yards (3,455) and he scored 35 rushing touchdowns.

Booth (6-4, 292) was undrafted out of Temple, signed with the Bears in mid-May and was waived Aug. 1.

He played three years at tight end for the Owls before moving to left tackle last year.
