The Jacksonville Jaguars moved rookie defensive back Aaron Colvin from the active/non-football injury list to the reserve/non-football injury list. The Jaguars now have the league-mandated 75 players on their active roster.
Colvin was drafted by the Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the 114th selection overall. Colvin suffered an ACL injury while playing at the Senior Bowl in January of 2014. He was a four-year letterman at Oklahoma, playing in 50 games with 36 starts. He finished his career with 234 tackles (170 solo), 15 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, five interceptions and 23 passes defensed.
"We are really pleased with Aaron's progress throughout the offseason and preseason," Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said. "He has been dedicated to his rehab from day one and worked extremely hard with our training and strength staff every day. He played at a high level at Oklahoma and we feel strongly about what he will bring to our roster in the future. He will continue his rehab and we will make a decision on his playing status for 2014 at the appropriate time."
