  • Nathan Cottrell: Rejoins practice squad

    Cottrell signed with the Jaguars' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Cottrell spent several days on Jacksonville's practice squad in early September but was cut prior to the season opener. He played almost exclusively on special teams across eight appearances with the Jaguars last year.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Cut from practice squad

    The Jaguars cut Cottrell from their practice squad Monday.

    Cottrell appeared in eight games -- mostly on special teams -- for the Jaguars in 2020 but landed on their practice squad to start 2021. However, when Duke Johnson became available, Jacksonville jumped at the opportunity to add the veteran, which meant the release of Cottrell. The 25-year-old will look for a fresh opportunity during the 2021 campaign.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Remains in Jacksonville

    Cottrell was signed to the Jaguars' practice squad Wednesday.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Waived by Jacksonville

    The Jaguars waived Cottrell on Tuesday.

    Cottrell appeared in eight games for the Jaguars as a rookie, but with the addition of Carlos Hyde, he finds himself off the depth chart. Jacksonville is electing to keep three running backs on its initial 53-man roster, so it may decide to retain Cottrell on the practice squad as insurance if he clears waivers.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Ready for Week 17

    Cottrell (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

    The 24-year-old was considered questionable with the hip injury but is good to go for the season finale. Cottrell should handle kick return duties and serve as a reserve tailback behind Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo on Sunday.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Deemed questionable for Sunday

    Cottrell (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Cottrell logged a trio of limited practices this week, putting his Week 17 status into question. Even with James Robinson (ankle) out last week, Cottrell didn't play a snap on offense, so his potential absence in the season finale only hurts the team's depth behind Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Joins active roster

    Cottrell was promoted to the Jaguars' active roster from the practice squad Tuesday.

    The 24-year-old was elevated as an extra player from the practice squad for Sunday's loss to the Steelers, and he's now earned a longer look on the active roster. Cottrell exclusively played special teams during the contest and figures to have a similar role going forward for Jacksonville.

    Cottrell has reverted to the Jaguars' practice squad.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Plays one snap in debut

    Cottrell played one offensive snap during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Colts.

    The rookie UDFA was active for the season opener and played 19 snaps on special teams. Cottrell is unlikely to be a factor in Jacksonville's offense under the current circumstances, but he may continue to suit up while Ryquell Armstead (reserve/COVID-19 list) and Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) are sidelined.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Added to active roster

    Cottrell was promoted to the Jaguars' active roster Saturday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

    Cottrell was signed to the team as an undrafted free agent after the 2020 draft and has bounced between the roster and practice squad since. Given the rash of injuries in Jacksonville's backfield, Cottrell could suit up in Week 1 against Indianapolis.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Waived by Jacksonville

    The Jaguars waived Cottrell on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Cottrell signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in April. He was efficient but underutilized as a running back for Georgia Tech, so he was seeking a special-teams role with Jacksonville. If he clears waivers, he may land on the practice squad.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Heads to Jacksonville

    Cottrell is slated to sign with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Cottrell rushed 46 times for 362 yards and four touchdowns as a junior at Georgia Tech, but he only had two carries and three receptions during his final collegiate season. The 23-year-old played a heavy role on special teams, and that figures to be his best path toward an NFL roster.
