The Jaguars placed Woods on the NFL’s reserve/retired list. The move leaves the Jaguars roster with 89 players.
Woods’ agent, Ron Butler, says the rookie was dealing with a turf toe injury that factored into his decision.
“That was hampering him from being able to go out and play like himself or be like himself,” Butler said via Heilman.
Woods, 21, signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss following the 2019 NFL Draft. Undrafted free agents were expected to sign three-year, $1.755 million contracts.
Woods ran the fastest time for a safety in this past draft class at the NFL Scouting Combine, turning in a time of 4.29 seconds.
During his four-year college career, Woods recorded 231 total tackles, half a sack, six interceptions, two forced fumbles, one defensive touchdown and 11 pass defenses in 47 games.
