Jaguars Promote WR C.J. Board, Waive CB Tae Hayes


The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Thursday that they’ve promoted WR C.J. Board to their active roster and waived CB Tae Hayes.

Mark Long notes that this another indication that WR D.J. Chark (ankle) won’t play against the Raiders in Week 15. 

Board, 26, originally signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Chattanooga back in May of last year. He was cut loose by Baltimore coming out of the preseason.

Board had brief stints with the Titans and Browns before signing to the Jaguars’ practice squad late last season. Since then, Board has been on and off of the taxi squad. 

In 2019, Board has appeared in two games for the Jaguars and caught one pass for 23 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

During his college career at Chattanooga, Board caught 146 passes for 2,032 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns over the course of 51 games. He also totaled 438 punt return yards and 147 kick return yards during his four-year career.
