The Jaguars promoted Ellefson to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday. Jacksonville also activated Ellefson from practice squad COVID-19 list Thursday, prior to moving him to the 53-man roster. The rookie out of North Dakota State previously appeared in game-action Week 1 versus the Colts, but he's still vying for his first career target.
The Jaguars placed Ellefson on the practice squad COVID-19 list Saturday. Ellefson has either contracted the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. The North Dakota State product will need to clear the NFL's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities.
Ellefson reverted to the Jaguars' practice squad Tuesday. The undrafted tight end made his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Colts, and he logged 13 offensive snaps but wasn't targeted on any of Gardner Minshew's 20 passes. Ellefson could be activated again for Week 2 if Tyler Davis (knee) is unavailable.
Ellefson was added to Jacksonville's active roster Saturday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. Ellefson signed with the team as an undrafted free agent after the 2020 draft. While he was waived and added to the practice squad, Tyler Davis' knee injury will give Ellefson the chance to serve as depth among the team's tight end corps.
Ellefson cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Jaguars' practice squad, John Oehser of the team's official site reports. As an undrafted free agent with no preseason games, Ellefson was unable to lock down a roster spot. The North Dakota State product will continue to hone his craft on the practice squad while Tyler Eifert and James O'Shaughnessy handle the tight-end reps.
