Lonnie Pryor added to Jaguars practice squad

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Pryor was released on Sunday to make room for a pair of tight ends claimed by the team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars added fullback Lonnie Pryor to the team's practice squad on Monday after he cleared waivers, the team announced on Twitter.

Pryor, 23, was released by the Jaguars on Sunday after two tight ends, D.J. Williams and Clay Harbor, were added on waivers. General manager Dave Caldwell said in a conference call that the decision to let Pryor go was a "tough one," but had to be made after the waiver claims, so it's not at all surprising that the rookie is still with the team.

In four preseason games, Pryor gained just two yards rushing on seven attempts, but also added 13 yards receiving with two receptions. During his senior season with the Florida State Seminoles, he tallied eight rushing touchdowns on only 47 attempts.

Following Monday's addition of Pryor, the Jaguars practice squad is full with eight players and the roster is at the maximum of 53 players.
