JAGUARS ACTIVATE LENZIE JACKSON; SIGN LEROY COLLINS TO PRACTICE SQUAD

The Jacksonville Jaguars today activated wide receiver Lenzie

Jackson from the practice squad to the active roster. In addition, the

team signed running back Leroy Collins to the practice squad.

Jackson, 22, was signed as an undrafted rookie in April. He spent

training camp with the Jaguars before being waived in the final cuts

on September 5. He was signed to the practice squad the next day.

The

6-0, 187-pound Jackson was one of the most underrated receivers in

college football in 1998. He started 11 games for Arizona State,

catching 41 passes for 568 yards and five touchdowns. The fifth

all-time leading receiver in school history, Jackson played in 42

games, making 32 starts.

Collins, 23, spent training camp with the Washington Redskins after

signing as an undrafted rookie out of Louisville. He was waived in

the cut to 65 on August 31. A transfer from Alfred University in

1998, Collins started the final nine games last year, rushing 232

times for 1,228 yards and 22 touchdowns and catching 39 passes for

336 yards. His offensive coordinator last year was current Jaguars

QB coach Bob Petrino. Collins is 5-11, 200 pounds
