Wilds signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals on Monday.
Wilds appeared in three games with the Jaguars early in the season -- and carried six times for 15 yards -- only to join the Cardinals practice squad in mid-October after being waived. The 25-year-old also made four appearances with the Jets back in 2016.
Wilds signed with the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wilds replaces running back Jalen Simmons on the team's practice squad. Wilds likely won't be activated unless there's an injury to David Johnson, Chase Edmonds or T.J. Logan.
Wilds was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Wilds was in line to take on a bigger role in the Jacksonville backfield when Corey Grant was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a foot injury. However, with the team electing to bring in veteran tailback Jamal Charles on Tuesday, Wilds has been let go in order to open up a roster spot.
Wilds rushed twice for six yards after Corey Grant exited Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chiefs with a foot injury.
Grant is headed to injured reserve after suffering a Lisfranc injury, leaving Wilds and T.J. Yeldon as Jacksonville's only healthy running backs since Leonard Fournette continues to battle a hamstring injury. Yeldon dominated the playing time Sunday -- he was on the field for 93 percent of offensive snaps -- but Wilds could be in line for an increased role while Fournette remains sidelined. The Jaguars are likely to add another running back in the near future to bolster their depth at the position.
Wilds had one rush for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
The carry came on Wilds' only snap of the afternoon. Leonard Fournette was again inactive due to his hamstring, leaving T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant to handle duties out of the backfield. Wilds won't see much involvement in the Jaguars offense barring further injury within the running back group.
