The Jaguars are calling up cornerback Sidney Jones from their practice squad, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Jones will take the place of defensive back Jarrod Wilson, who suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday’s win over the Colts.
Jones was on track to be a first-round pick in 2017 before an Achilles tear at Washington’s pro day. The Eagles nabbed him at No. 43 overall, but he’s been less than 100% healthy ever since. On Labor Day Weekend, the Eagles cut him from the roster, leading him to Jacksonville.
Jones started 30 games during his career as a Huskie. In 2016 – his final year on campus – he registered 39 tackles, two interceptions, six passes defensed in 14 games.
Now, he’ll try to put it all together for the Jaguars. Jones & Co. will look to start the year 2-0 on Sunday when they take on the Titans in Tennessee.
