Strong, unfortunately, suffered a torn ACL during Sunday’s loss to the 49ers, so this move was expected.
Strong, 23, was taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Texans. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $3.281 million rookie contract that included $820,338 guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 (2017), and $705,000 (2018) over the remainder of the contract.
The Texans waived Strong coming out of the preseason before he was claimed off of waivers by the Jaguars. Jacksonville elected to waive Strong last month and later re-signed him to their practice squad.
Strong was called up to their active roster a few weeks ago.
In 2017, Strong appeared in two games for the Jaguars and caught three passes for 38 yards receiving and one touchdown.
