The Jacksonville Jaguars have utilized their two practice squad standard elevation spots on safety Doug Middleton and tight end Eric Saubert.

The Jaguars also activated running back Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) from the reserve/injured-designated for return list to the active roster after placing running back Chris Thompson on the reserve/COVID-19 list today. The team now have 55 players on their active/inactive list for today’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

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.
