The Jacksonville Jaguars announced several roster moves on Monday including releasing DT Timmy Jernigan and placing LB Leon Jacobs on injured reserve. 

  • The Jaguars also signed K Steven Hauschka and promoted DT Daniel Ekuale to their active roster. 
  • Jacksonville waived Brandon Wright (groin) with an injury designation and OL Jared Hilbers and K Aldrick Rosas to their practice squad.

Here’s the Jaguars updated practice squad:

  11. DB Doug Middleton
  12. TE Eric Saubert
  13. DB Josh Nurse

Jernigan, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2014. Baltimore later traded Jernigan and a third-round pick to the Eagles in return for a third-round pick in 2017.

Jernigan was in the final year of his four-year, $4.382 million contract that included $2.126 million guaranteed when the Eagles signed him to a four-year, $48 million extension that included $26 million fully guaranteed in 2017. 

Philadelphia declined Jernigan’s option last year but ended up re-signing him for the 2019 season. He agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Texans back in April, but never passed a physical for the team and the agreement was never officially processed.

The Jaguars later signed Jernigan to a contract in August.

In 2020, Jernigan has appeared in three games for the Jaguars and recorded one tackle.

Jacobs, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.55 million contract.

For his career, Jacobs has appeared in 29 games for the Jaguars and recorded 56 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense.
