This puts Jacksonville at 17 players on the practice squad by our count, which means a move could potentially be coming. 

The Jaguars’ practice squad now includes:

  1. DB Lorenzo Burns
  2. DT Doug Costin
  3. WR Jeff Cotton
  4. WR Josh Hammond
  5. T KC McDermott
  6. DB Brandon Rusnak
  7. T Badara Traore
  8. WR Laquon Treadwell
  9. G Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms
  10. QB Kyle Lauletta
  11. TE Matt Sokol
  12. RB Nathan Cottrell
  13. WR Tim Jones
  14. K Matthew Wright
  15. WR Josh Imatorbhebhe
  16. RB Kerrith Whyte Jr.
  17. OL Jared Hocker

Whyte, 24, was selected in the seventh round out of Florida Atlantic by the Bears in 2019. He agreed to a four-year, $2.6 million contract and managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason.

However, Chicago elected to waive Whyte that September and signed him to their practice squad once clearing waivers. The Steelers signed Whyte to their active roster later in the year. 

Whyte spent all of last season on the Lions’ practice squad before a brief stint with the Bills this summer. 

In 2019, Whyte appeared in six games for the Steelers and rushed 24 times for 122 yards (5.1 YPC) and caught one pass for nine yards.
