  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Elevated for Week 17

    Cottrell was promoted to the Jaguars' active roster from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Cottrell will join the active roster for the second straight game to provide depth at running back. He'll likely see most of his action on special teams with Dare Ogunbowale, Ryquell Armstead and Mekhi Sargent already on the 53-man roster.

  • Nathan Cottrell: Reverts to practice squad

    Cottrell reverted to Jacksonville's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Cottrell was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Jets and ended up as the No. 2 tailback after starter James Robinson suffered a torn Achilles during the first quarter, but he ended up playing only one offensive snap and had one carry for three yards. Dare Ogunbowale dominated the backfield work, and Jacksonville also claimed Mekhi Sargent on waivers Monday. Cottrell is unlikely to be much of a factor for the final two games of the season with Ogunbowale, Sargent and Ryquell Armstead already on the 53-man roster.

  • Jaguars' Nathan Cottrell: Joins active roster

  • 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: 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.
