The Jaguars claimed Ehinger off waivers Thursday, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Ehinger was waived by the Cowboys on Wednesday, presumably after he could pass a physical in the wake of a 2018 campaign that he lost to knee surgery. The 2016 fourth-rounder will now get a summer to prove himself in Jacksonville with hopes of securing a depth role in advance of Week 1.
Ehinger (knee) was waived by the Cowboys on Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Ehinger was traded from the Chiefs to the Cowboys in August but spent the entire season on injured reserve due to knee surgery. The 26-year-old currently appears healthy as he wasn't waived with an injury designation, but he has played in only six games since being a fourth-round pick in the 2016 draft .
Ehinger (knee) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ehinger was placed on injured reserve last week, a disappointing reality for the offensive lineman, as he will now miss 42 of his first 48 career games. However, successful surgery is a step in the right direction, as he'll begin recovering in an effort to take the field again next season.
Ehinger (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The exact nature of his injury isn't clear, but this is nonetheless a brutal development for Ehinger. The offensive lineman missed all but one game in 2017 due to a torn ACL he sustained in 2016, and he's now slated to miss 42 of the first 48 games of his career.
Ehinger, who was traded to the Cowboys last week in exchange for cornerback Charvarius Ward, suffered a knee injury in Wednesday's practice. The 2016 fourth-rounder is reportedly considered day-to-day, but Dallas is nonetheless working out fellow O-line option Xavier Su'a-Filo. If Ehinger is able to get healthy, he stands to play a key rotational role in the Cowboys' interior offensive line.
