Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Quincy Williams has been “designated for return” from the team’s reserve/injured list after dealing with a core muscle injury, and the club has 21 days to activate him to the 53-man roster.
Williams is in his second year after being drafted by the Jaguars in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. During his rookie campaign, Williams appeared in 11 games with eight starts and posted 48 tackles (30 solo), including two tackles for loss.
He was placed on the reserve/injured list following final roster reductions earlier this year with a core muscle injury.
In 2020, NFL clubs will be 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.
