The Jacksonville Jaguars have utilized a practice squad standard elevation spot on DE Jabaal Sheard for the club’s Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions. The Jaguars now have 54 players on their active/inactive list.

Sheard has appeared in 134 career games with 103 starts since originally entering the NFL as a second-round pick with the Browns in 2011. He played four seasons with the Cleveland Browns (2011-2014), followed by a two-year stint with the New England Patriots (2015-2016), including a Super Bowl win in Super Bowl LI, and three years with the Indianapolis Colts (2017-2019).

For his career, he has totaled 387 tackles, 51.5 sacks, 27 passes defensed, and 13 forced fumbles.

In accordance with Article 33, Section 5 of the 2020 CBA, each club may elevate a maximum of two players each week from its practice squad to its active/inactive List as a 54th or 55th player without the player first terminating his practice squad contract.

Any elevated practice squad player shall automatically revert to the club’s practice squad at 4 p.m. ET on the first business day following such game without being subject to waivers.

A practice squad player may be elevated to a club’s active/inactive list as a 54th or 55th player for a maximum of two regular season or postseason games.

If a Practice Squad player is elevated to a club’s active/inactive List as a 54th or 55th player for any regular season game, the player’s weekly compensation specified in Paragraph 4 of the practice squad player contract will be adjusted to one-seventeenth (1/17th) of the Paragraph 5 minimum salary for players on a club’s active/inactive list with the practice squad player’s number of credited seasons for such game.
