The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed second-year running back Elijah Hood to their 90-man active roster. The release of backup quarterback Tanner Lee left a vacant spot on the team’s roster.
Hood spent the 2018 NFL season on Carolina’s reserve/injured list. In 2017, he saw action in one game on special teams for the Oakland Raiders and spent 15 weeks on the practice squad.
Hood attended the University of North Carolina from 2014-2016 and played in 34 games, totaling 2,580 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns. As a sophomore in 2015, he ran for 1,463 yards and 17 touchdowns, earning second-team All-ACC honors.
