Mickens had been with the team's practice squad, but he'll join the Jaguars for Sunday's matchup with the Colts, essentially functioning as insurance with Allen Robinson (knee) out and Marqise Lee (knee) questionable. Mickens, who spent the preseason with the Raiders, is yet to appear in a regular season NFL game.
Mickens (ankle) was waived by the Raiders on Monday, the team's official site reports.
Mickens was waived after being placed on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. The wideout spent all of last season on the Raiders' practice squad.
Mickens was considered a long shot to land on the final roster before going down with an ankle injury. As expected, he cleared waivers and landed on the team's IR. Unless he and the team reach an injury settlement he remain there for the 2017 season.
Mickens (ankle) was waived with an injury designation Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Mickens' chances of making the final roster were essentially nullified when he couldn't take part in the preseason finale. He'll likely revert to injured reserve.
