Cottrell has reverted to the Jaguars' practice squad. Cottrell was activated for the team's season opener against the Colts, and he played mainly on special teams but logged one offensive snap. The undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech will look to develop further on the Jaguars' practice roster.
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.
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.
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.
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.
