The Jacksonville Jaguars are promoting cornerback Sidney Jones to their active roster after safety Jarrod Wilson sustained a hamstring injury in yesterday’s win over the Indianapolis Colts

Jones, a second-round draft pick by the Eagles in 2017, was considered by many to be a top-10 talent coming out of college that year, but a torn Achilles tendon at his pro day derailed those plans. Due to the injury, Jones saw action in just one game as a rookie, but earned a Super Bowl ring with the Eagles. Since then, Jones has continued to struggle with soft tissue injuries during his short NFL career, and has put out some inconsistent film.

Still, for a cornerback room that is full of youth — including four rookies — Jones will help Jacksonville’s secondary. In 22 career games, with eight starts, Jones has compiled 50 total tackles, including three tackles for loss, three interceptions and 10 passes defended. Pro Football Focus gave Jones an overall grade of 63.5 in 2019.
