JACKSONVILLE – Aaron Lynch is unretiring.

Lynch, a defensive end/linebacker who announced his retirement from the Jaguars and the NFL in retired August, was reinstated from the Jaguars' reserve/retired list to the team's exempt/commissioner permission list on Wednesday.

Lynch must go through five days of COVID-19 testing and could be eligible to return to the team's facility Monday.

Lynch, a fifth-round selection by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2014 NFL Draft, signed with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent from the Chicago Bears this past offseason. He has registered 20 sacks in six NFL seasons.
