Trimming their rosters down to 53 was just the beginning for NFL teams on the weekend before the start of the regular season. After telling 27 players to kick rocks, NFL teams, including the Jaguars, then had to fill out their practice squads. NFL clubs are allowed to have 16 practice squad players in 2020. Teams can designate four practice squad players to be protected starting on Tuesday of game week, but that protection gets lifted after their game, so those players can then be signed to another team's active roster.
Jaguars' practice squad players:
QB: Mike Glennon
RB: Nathan Cottrell
WR: Terry Godwin, Josh Hammond, Trey Quinn
TE: Ben Ellefson, Matt Flanagan
OT: KC McDermott, Austin Pleasants
G: Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims
DT: Caraun Reid
LB: Nate Evans, Joe Giles-Harris
CB: Amari Henderson
P: Brandon Wright
Jacksonville has signed only 15 players to their practice squad. So one spot remains open.
Sidney Jones was reported (Tom McManus) to be signing with the Jaguars to join their practice squad, but he's not on the list. We'll monitor the situation there.
The Jaguars are loaded at the wide receiver spot on the practice squad. All three of their receivers have shown the ability to perform at an NFL level at some point or another. Hammond is a rookie, but he dominated the Jaguars' depth cornerbacks in practice down the stretch.
Normally Mike Glennon wouldn't be practice squad eligible, but with the threat of COVID-19, the NFL is allowing teams to have six practice squad players of any experience level.
Tre'Vour Wallace-Sims had some impressive practices after returning from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Evans and Giles-Harris are solid developmental linebackers for the team, who already has a solid linebacker core heading into 2020.
