The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted undrafted rookie tight end Ben Ellefson from the practice squad to the active roster and activated kicker Josh Lambo from the reserve/injured-designated for return list.
To make room on the roster, the Jaguars placed defensive tackle Abry Jones (ankle) on the reserve/injured list and released kicker Jon Brown.
The club also released defensive end Josh Mauro from the exempt/commissioner permission list.
In 2020, NFL clubs are permitted to return an unlimited number of players from either the club’s Reserve/Injured List or from its Reserve/Non-Football Injury/Illness List to the club’s 53-player Active/Inactive List. Such players must have suffered a football-related injury after reporting to training camp and passing the club’s physical and must have been placed on the reserve list following 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, September 5.
To be eligible for return, a player cannot begin to practice until three weeks have elapsed since the date he was placed on a reserve list, and the player cannot return to the Active/Inactive List until three games have elapsed since the date he was placed on Reserve/Injured.
