Koyack is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans due to a hand injury.
Koyack will miss out on his final chance to catch a pass in 2018 if he's unable to retake the field. As long as Koyack remains sidelined, Blake Bell should benefit from a slight uptick in snaps.
Koyack played 18 offensive snaps in Thursday's 30-9 loss at Tennessee.
Koyack has seen a similar snap count in each of his four games since signing with the Jaguars last month. The 25-year-old has more or less been splitting reps as the team's No. 2 tight end with Blake Bell, though neither has produced much of note offensively.
Koyack signed with Jacksonville on Monday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Koyack has familiarity with the Jaguars so it's likely he'll be able to mesh with Blake Bortles right away. While he'll likely begin his new tenure behind the likes of James O'Shaughnessy and Blake Bell, there's a chance he can snag the starting tight end spot before season's end. Koyack hauled in 24 receptions for 199 yards and a score with the Jaguars over 2016 and 2017.
The Jaguars and Koyack (undisclosed) came to terms on an injury settlement Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Koyack was set to spend his season on the sidelines before both he and the Jags reached an agreement on an injury settlement. Once his health is up to par he will be free to find a new opportunity.
Koyack has done little to climb the depth chart this preseason, and is primed to enter his fourth season in the league behind fellow tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul. The 25-year-old is a longshot for fantasy relevance, with only five catches for 38 yards in 2017 over all 16 games.
